Little has changed on the front, but on the stage, it’s a different story.
The bars on the left side of the stage that were visible recently have been removed, allowing for a better look at some of the elements protruding from the stage.
It’s likely that the right side of the stage will get a similar treatment soon.
On both sides of the castle, construction equipment has arrived to help install the decorations themed to the celebration, including gold bunting and a special crest to mark the Magic Kingdom’s fiftieth. On the east side, the moat has finally been completely drained, allowing three cherry pickers to roll in.
Above, you can see the temporary dam keeping the water back.
An access platform leads down to the site, which seems to have received some cleaning before the decorating work begins in earnest.
More cherry pickers are also in place on the west side, which has already been completely drained.
This is a strong indicator that the transformation will begin very soon, possibly as early as tomorrow.
All this work will lead to a very festive looking castle as the big day on October 1st approaches.
