Heading through Seuss Landing, we spotted some painting refurbishment around one of the elephants outside of Circus McGurkus Cafe Stoo-Pendous.

The lavender trim has a fresh new coat of paint. The color looks beautiful next to the pink flowers.

Just outside the construction walls, water is running again on both sides of the Poseidon’s Fury sign.

One of the façade fountains is running as well. There is still no set reopening date yet, but hopefully the walls come down soon!

Continuing our loop around the park, we passed by King Julien and some friends getting the crowds pumped up for a fun day. 

Hagrids wait time

75 Minute wait time at Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure. That’s a pretty long line but the weather is nice so the wait won’t be too bad!

On the other hand, Skull Island: Reign of Kong was only a 20 minute wait. Which attraction would you choose to wait for?

Crowds aren’t too bad around Marvel Super Hero Island. And wait times really aren’t too bad for it being a holiday.

A new Marvel Avengers hoodie and tee can be found in the Marvel Alterniverse Store.  Both the hoodie and tee seem to match some previous merchandise we spotted a couple weeks ago.
