PHOTO REPORT: Magic Kingdom 4/22/21 (Fresh Cool Ship Painting, Resort Hotel Construction Updates, New Aulani Ears, and More)

Hey, everyone! Welcome to a bright and early morning, followed by an actually beautiful day out in the park. With all the crazy weather shuffling from thunderstorms to cloudless hot days, today was almost perfect, temperature-wise, while we were at the park. Come join us as we take you through our magical day.

After a beautiful sunrise, parking opened a little bit later than usual. However, we were through to park in mere minutes. In the end, no time was wasted making our way into the Magic Kingdom.

No changes today at Cinderella Castle, but we couldn’t help ourselves to show this beautiful view! There isn’t a single cloud in the sky and it’s a perfect 65 degrees as the day started.

Workers are still making progress on the TRON Lightcycle / Run canopy preparing it for the next step of construction.

On our way through Fantasyland, we found this someone had lost their ears. We hope whoever may have dropped them was able to come back and reunite with their souvenir.

The Coca-Cola Cool Ship refurbishment continues its paint job. For more photos and details, check out our article here.

Peter Pan’s Flight as far as we know has stalled construction-wise, but that’s just from our perspective since not much can be seen beyond the themed scrim surrounding the building.

The Hall of Presidents is still currently closed, but it’s all a matter of time before it opens once again.

On our stop at Tomorrowland Light and Power Co., we saw some cool new pins being traded alongside a vintage picture from the park.

Over at the Ye Olde Christmas Shoppe, where it’s always Christmas, we were wished a merry one as we walked in and found this magnet. It’s not new; in fact, it came out around July 2019 but with the color changes happening on the entrance signs for the 50th, it’s a nice keepsake to have for $9.99.

On our way to check out the refurbishment at Disney’s Contemporary Resort, nothing much has changed in the interior of the A-frame hotel.

As we searched for the new Incredibles curtains that are soon to be installed, we noticed that most of the curtains had been removed in preparation.

The Monorail station and front interior of Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort are making more and more progressive strides each day with construction. We can almost picture walking through the front door and up to Kona Cafe for some well-needed, delicious sushi.

Inside the resort hotel, we found these ears on the shelves. This is another product that isn’t new as it was an Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa exclusive. However, these ears are new to Walt Disney World and cost $30.

Our last thing on our To-Do List before leaving Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort was to take an aerial view of the construction going on outside. We’ll keep you up to date on any changes as we see them happening.

With that, we finish with an action-packed shot of work being done on Floridian Way—or the wind just picked up just as we drove by. Anyways, that’s all for today and tune in tomorrow as we bring you all the latest changes first at WDWNT.
