Walking up to the Magic Kingdom from the Monorail station, we noticed the Railroad station as the first casualty of Hurricane Elsa, with some of the netting underneath peeking through.

Over on the side of the entrance points, we noticed a ticket booth with a Flower & Garden Festival sign still in place after it ended a few days prior (July 5th).

We found these cute new Minnie Mouse Croc Sandals at the Emporium on our way to Jungle Cruise!

This morning we were the first guests of the day to see the backside of water!

Leaving Adventureland, we found a new DAS & Rider Switch distribution point near Splash Mountain and Big Thunder Mountain Railroad with some friendly cast members eager to help!

TRON made a lot of progress overnight that included more work on the entry point and lower walkway.

On our way out of Tomorrowland, we noticed (sadly) that our favorite gear is next up to be replaced with scoring across one side of it on the bridge.

Heading back around to Main Street U.S.A., one of the Happily Ever After viewing signs by the hub grass near Crystal Palace was missing from its post.

Another new Photopass spot, or maybe just temporarily moved aside to accommodate the massive crowds traveling down Main Street U.S.A. today, was in place in front of a newly reopened Plaza Ice Cream Parlor.

We waved goodbye to Mickey and friends as we made our way out of the park, just missing the afternoon rainstorm. Thanks for following along today!
