PHOTO REPORT: Magic Kingdom 2/10/21 (Mystery, Intrigue, and General Construction)

Welcome foolish mortals to the…Magic Kingdom, the fog was so thick this morning we honestly thought the mansion had taken over the park or the villains were taking over the park again…too soon?


But alas, the fog didn’t last as long as we thought it would, and a few hours later, the park was once again shining bright but really muggy and figured our first step to escape the humidity would be off to Neverland and as we got there we saw the construction walls have grown further.


While we thought of happy thoughts it seemed the universe had different plans for the recently reopened Liberty Square Riverboat and the rafts to Tom Sawyer Island, both of which met technical difficulty for the day.


I guess escaping the heat in the caves around Tom Sawyer Island wasn’t an option for today, but when you can’t find a cave, find a circus! Quiet and shady Pete’s Silly Sideshow is a relaxation station and a great place to get some conditioned air, a comfy seat and to take our masks off, even for a few moments.


Now in our search for things that are new to share with you all, construction is on steroids over for Tron, construction cranes and an army of construction workers are putting together this marvel of architecture.


Sigh, let’s just tell you the rest of the not so great news to move on to the good news: the PeopleMover is still being tested and cast members are unsure of when it will be open, suggesting that reopening may not be till March-April.


The Bonjour Gift Shop over by Gaston’s Tavern is still being painted; there isn’t much left to paint but it means the shop is still closed.


But as Walt always said, keep moving forward.

Some Dapper Dans…


A country bear…


And a few princesses walking down the road later, basically we passed the time hanging out with some real characters at the park.


The Liberty Square Riverboat rides again and we got there just in time to see the test run as it sailed off into the sunset, well it was around 2 o’clock, so sailed off towards Splash Mountain.


On a side not, passing by the Ye Olde Christmas Shoppe, we saw the podium in the back still covered by the once recognizable Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom cover, maybe it’s just wishful thinking but we’re trying to believe that maybe it’s a secret society now.


With that, we left for the Polynesian, excited to see the progress and hoping to get one of our favorite sushi views back at the Kona Cafe, and a lot of progress is being made, we just need to be patient.


And with that, the day came to an end and on our way home we went, because we don’t look backwards for very long, we keep moving forward.
