PHOTOS: Repainting Continues in Storybook Circus for the 50th Anniversary of the Magic Kingdom

As we creep closer to October 1st, the 50th anniversary of the Magic Kingdom, refurbishment projects are ongoing across the park. Repainting continues around Storybook Circus at both Dumbo the Flying Elephant and Casey Jr. Splash ‘N’ Soak Station. Let’s take a look at the newest progress.

The shield crest atop the center of the tent at Dumbo the Flying Elephant is in tip-top shape now, having received a fresh coat of paint.

The gold paint had been flaking and chipped, but it’s now bright and shining in the morning sun.

Some of the new paint was stripped when the painter’s tape was removed. Hopefully, we’ll see some touch-ups soon.

Tape removal has begun on the other side of the giraffe car, but some remains at the top of the car and around the “Giraffes” sign.
