PHOTOS: Rolling Planters and Scrim Go Up at Ye Olde Christmas Shoppe in Magic Kingdom, Store Still Open During Apparent Refurbishment

After getting a new coat of paint late last month, rolling planters and scrim have gone up around one side of Ye Olde Christmas Shoppe in Liberty Square at Magic Kingdom.

Heading around to the right side of the main entrance, we spotted rolling planters set up.

Coming around the corner, we saw that the entire back side of Ye Olde Christmas Shoppe had been blocked off with rolling planters.

In addition, the yellow-white exterior wall slats have been covered by scrim, both on this main wall and the gabled overhang off to the right.

The scrim itself is a yellow-white color, matching the building’s usual exterior.

We also noticed this black material peeking through the scrim.

Looking underneath the gabled roof, you can see what seems to be blue painter’s tape beneath the scrim.

It’s possible that this section of the wall is just being repainted.

At the time of writing, the store is still operating under its usual hours while this apparent refurbishment is taking place.
