It’s the last Sunday in October, which can only mean one thing: Halloween is upon us at the Magic Kingdom! We’ve got our usual updates from the park, including the progress of TRON Lightcycle Run and the entrance booths, but also some spooky merchandise appearing around the park. Let’s get into the spirit and head towards those parking booths.
Heading towards the park, we got a quick glimpse of TRON Lightcycle Run’s show buildings, which are nearly completely sealed up.
Sticking to TRON once inside the park, a lot of progress has continued outside of the gravity building on the illuminated canopy. Pieces of the canopy structure continue to be added, while additional sections are assembled at ground level.
From a different angle, that work-in-progress canopy is taking a much more impressive shape as it covers portions of the outdoor track with its subtle curvature.
Elsewhere in Tomorrowland, the smaller project (but one that may take nearly as long as TRON Lightcycle Run’s construction) of the retheming of the PeopleMover support legs continues to take very small steps. This leg near Buzz Lightyear Space Ranger Spin has received its first coat of white paint, while the leg behind it is hidden behind scaffolding and scrim.
Another popular piece of Haunted Mansion merchandise, the Madame Leota sipper continues to generate a long line at Sleepy Hollow despite having been released over a month and a half ago.
The Haunted Mansion — yes, the actual attraction — was also generating a long line (getting as high as 60 minutes today) which continues to run through the Riverboat queue space during its refurbishment.
Draining of the Rivers of America continues to be a very, very slow process.
The Cadaver Dans, who rotate between a few different locations, made an appearance in Frontierland in the early afternoon today.
Also a popular guest draw in Frontierland, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad drew a 45 minute wait in the afternoon, which surprisingly for a Sunday is not as long as it has been past weekends.
Thanks for joining us at “The Most Magical Place on Earth” today. Are you missing the usual Halloween festivities more as October 31st approaches, or is the holiday not on your mind this year? Let us know in the comments!
