Welcome to a wet start to the weekend at the Magic Kingdom! It’s our first weekend of March, which means an onslaught of both spring showers and spring break crowds will be coming to Walt Disney World in the near future. We’re getting a taste of both today, so let’s take a look at the state of the park.
While the ongoing construction to the illuminated canopy was fully expected, a Universal-style visit from an osprey trying to build a nest on top of a roller coaster — in this case, TRON — was a bit of a surprise.
We also noticed that Cinderella’s carriage remains after nearly five months in Fantasyland. The carriage was initially expected to depart after the holidays, and again after Valentine’s Day, yet it still endures as a photo-op.
Checking in again at Emporium, new Popsockets had been stocked — one featuring a retro Disney logo, and one with a classic Disney quote.
Approaching Tomorrowland once again, we saw that Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin had quite the line, extending to the outskirts of the land.
Buzz Lightyear himself was appearing at the Rockettower Plaza Stage, seemingly ignorant to the lines for his namesake attraction.
Fantasyland wasn’t fairing much better, with Peter Pan’s Flight experiencing downtime that resulted in clearing out all guests from the queue.
For the remainder of our visit, we’d mostly be spotting cavalcades in their various forms. In the case of this first one, a Rainy Day Cavalcade version of the Mickey and Friends Cavalcade.
Not long after, a princess-centric Rainy Day Cavalcade would roll through Frontierland, Liberty Square, the Hub, and Main Street.
Back on Main Street, a standard version of the Fantasyland Friends Cavalcade would herald some sunnier weather during a break in the precipitation.
Finally, still on Main Street, the balloon selection was a bit… limited. While the selection would certainly be refreshed, at this moment there was little choice but orange.
