After we arrived, we made our way over to World Showcase to check in on the aftermath of the fire that occurred last night at America Gardens Theatre.

Crews were in the process of cleaning up the affected area when we arrived. Scrim was placed over a small portion of the railing above the amphitheater.

Since we were close by the BoardWalk, we decided to go check in on progress over at Cake Bake Shop. The planters that previously surrounded the shop are now down but not much else is visible.

It’s been quite some time since we’ve seen this shop open, and we were happy to see it was full to the brim with UK merchandise including 101 Dalmations, Peter Pan, and Mary Poppins.
