Welcome back to Dateline Disney World. This week, the most action happened at the Magic Kingdom, so we’re back there this time around. Let’s get started!
Outside the park, you can see the construction of the DVC bungalows at the Polynesian.
Welcome to the Magic Kingdom!!
Nice new flowers in Town Square.
Walls up near the Plaza restaurant.
Cranes have been up at Cinderella Castle to repaint it. There is a layer of silver primer, and some nice and new blue turrets.
The moat is also drained everywhere as the hub expansion project gets underway.
It’s been busy in the park lately with spring break approaching.
This nice photo op of the Tangled tower is now blocked by an ODV cart.
Work continues outside the Village Haus.
More walls have come down at the Mine Train, and it keeps feeling like we’re getting closer.
On the other side, there are a ton of trees, which should create a rather nice atmosphere.
Here is what the Tomorrowland side of the Hub project currently looks like.
The hub is being expanded to accommodate Fastpass+ seating for parades and fireworks.
It is very ugly in the center of the park right now, but hopefully that will all pay off when the remodel is complete. I’m hoping for the best.
In other news, the Tomorrowland Terrace was open this week due to crowds. You know the parks are busy when this location opens.
But even at the busiest time, this corner of Main Street is empty!
Disney has been pushing Frozen Blu-Rays really hard in the parks, as they had CMs outside shops holding copies and signs even at food locations, like the Confectionary here.
Something tells me that Frozen doesn’t need the help!
To wrap things up, here are some pretty Main Street shots.
Well, that does it for this week. How do you all feel about the Mine Train and Hub projects? Let us know in the comments!!
