Big changes are on the way to the Magic Kingdom. While not much new is happening right now, let’s take a stroll through the park and imagine a Tomorrowland with a Tron coaster in it!

Welcome to the Magic Kingdom!
Some scrims still left at the Emporium, close to the Barber Shop.
Much of the Emporium is out from under scrims though, and is looking really good.
At D23, Disney announced a new theater for Main Street. Some rumors have suggested that it will replace the Town Square theater, but I think it will more than likely end up near the bypass area, as it should be a pretty big building.
Scrims up further down Main Street.

Mobile ordering is now available at several restaurants at Magic Kingdom, including Harbor House. More on that in a bit!


Scrims still up over at Sir Mickey's in Fantasyland.

Some refurbishment happening on one of the spires of Space Mountain.
And right next to Space Mountain, you currently have this view. But, that will certainly change by the time WDW's 50th anniversary gets here. It was announced that MK is getting the Tron Lightcycle attraction from Shanghai Disneyland!

Yes, TRON is coming . . . but you'll have to wait until 2021 for it.  This is why we need cryogenic freezing. I'll gladly go into hypersleep now and just wake me when the ride is ready . . . OK?!

If this hadn't been released by Disney, you'd think this was fan art.
Since Tron is going next to Space Mountain on the other side of the WDW Railroad tracks, the Speedway is safe.

Scrims still up at Cosmic Ray's.
Cosmic Ray's also has mobile ordering now. Pickup is at the Bay 3 window, and is a very easy and efficient process! Order your food in the App and pick it up when you arrive at the restaurant.

Scrims still up at Sunshine Tree Terrace.
As well as Island Supply.
