PHOTOS: Construction at Transportation and Ticket Center Extends to Mickey’s Gift Station

Across Walt Disney World Resort, arrival enhancements are underway at each park. These projects will improve guests’ overall arrival experience and are set to be complete before the resort’s 50th anniversary.

For Magic Kingdom, a major component of many guests’ arrival experience is a trip through the Transportation and Ticket Center (TTC). Let’s take a look at the work going on there now.

The biggest change we noticed was in the area by Mickey’s Gift Station, which was recently closed. The store is still open, but guests have been rerouted around construction to reach the store’s entrance. Construction hedges blocked the exit by Mickey’s Gift Station just a few days ago.

Black material has been taped over the windows for protection from the ongoing work. The planter by the store has been stripped to its base. The concrete surrounding the planter has been removed and new concrete has begun to be poured. Areas have been framed out for more new concrete.

Where the tram loop once was, large sections of pavement have been ripped up.

The retaining wall has more sections completed since our last update. Not much paving work has happened on the new guest walkway.

We’ll be keeping an eye out for any changes at the TTC. If you want to see more of the front entrance construction projects from the other parks, check out the new security structures at Disney’s Animal Kingdom and EPCOT. Keep checking WDW News Today for all of the latest construction updates!
