Halloween is right around the corner, and Main Street U.S.A. has gotten into the spooky season spirit! This morning we found that Main Street U.S.A. has been decorated up and down with pumpkins and Halloween decor.

Let’s give a royal welcome to some of our favorite princesses! Today we found that one of the The Royal Princess Processional floats had gone missing, and several princesses were instead walking the route themselves. The “A Kingdom Of Dreams” Float still remains however, and of course the group is still being led by the beloved, spunky, red-headed, Princess Merida!

We hopped over to Storybook Circus to find that planters have been placed all around Big Top Souvenirs and the surrounding area. We found multiple construction vehicles in the area as well. We hope to see the return of this iconic store very soon!

Casey Jr. Splash ‘N’ Soak Station seemed to run dry again today. This area reopened not too long ago, where it offered a nice area for kids and adults alike to cool off.

TRON Lightcycle / Run construction continues full steam ahead. We’ve seen lots of progress on the new structure inside of the construction area recently.

Over at Jungle Cruise, it seems the skippers may have found themselves a new sponsor. This new Ziploc trunk displays the phrase “Everyday solutions for all your extraordinary adventures.” No official sponsorship has been announced as of this time.

Construction continues throughout the many storefronts of Frontierland. The boardwalk work began just a little over a week ago, but we’ve already seen some progress.

We boarded a Monorail and set our sights towards Disney’s Contemporary Resort. While on our ride, we found that more scrim had been added to the exterior of the resort.

Once inside the lobby, we took a look at the ongoing refurbishment of the area. Just yesterday we noticed that The Wave… of American Flavors sign had been completely removed.

On the second floor of the Resort, we found that multiple black curtains had been placed around the former sitting areas.
