PHOTO REPORT: Magic Kingdom 6/12/21 (Big Thunder Mountain Railroad Reopens, Almost All Distancing Markers Removed, Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort Updates, and More)

Good morning and welcome to a sunny day here at Magic Kingdom! The heat isn’t keeping us away though, so follow us as we take a stroll down Main Street, U.S.A. and beyond! Lets jump right in.


Walking through the Transportation and Ticket Center, we saw that some progress has been made on painting. Slowly but surely they have almost fully transitioned the light purple walls to a gray.


We set sail on Jungle Cruise and were pleasantly surprised to see the return of Inspiration Falls! We were a little tired of just having to look at “Inspiration Rock” …It doesn’t have quite the same ring to it. Lots of changes are happening at Jungle Cruise everyday, click here to hear about just one of the most recent ones.


In Tomorrowland, we checked up on TRON Lightcycle / Run. Recently we found that “The Grid” has been reopened; construction continues throughout the attraction.


We couldn’t visit Tomorrowland without saying “Aloha!” to our friend Stitch!


Within the past few weeks we have seen physical distancing markers removed from every attraction’s extended queue inside Magic Kingdom, but now those same markers continue to be pulled up inside the actual queues themselves. Today, we found that markers have been completely removed from Jungle Cruise, Mad Tea Party, “it’s a small world,” Peter Pan’s Flight, Haunted Mansion, Splash Mountain, Pirates of the Caribbean, and The Magic Carpets of Aladdin.


Because of recent refurbishment, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad wasn’t set to reopen until June 13. So we were shocked when we found “the wildest ride in the wilderness” was boarding guests today! We’ve definitely missed seeing our favorite mountain goat in all of Frontierland!


Back on Main Street, U.S.A., we had a quick dance party with our friends Goofy, Max, and Panchito!


Before heading out, we swung by Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, where construction is still going strong. More and more plywood continues to be added to the colorful porte cochère. Recently Disney announced the return of Ohana’s at this very same resort.


That brings us to the end of our day! Thanks for following us around Walt Disney World. How do you feel about all of the upcoming safety protocols in the parks? Make sure to leave us a comment letting us know! We’ll “see ya real soon!”
