It’s a big photo update from Walt Disney World for you this week. We hit three parks and have over 80 photos for you to enjoy. Let’s see what’s going on in the parks!

Welcome to the Magic Kingdom!

I was in the park early, so the vehicles were out.

Some coffee was needed.

Disney has put cutouts of the characters along the construction walls in the Hub. There’s an expansion project going on which will provide Fastpass+ parade, show and fireworks viewing.

Dapper Dans!

Work continues on the castle, and as you can see, what has been done so far is looking really nice.

Tomorrowland side of the Hub construction.

Time for some Mine Train shots.


The water from the Be Our Guest waterfall is now going under the bridge to the Mine Train.

Nice flower boxes at Columbia Harbor House.

The wider path in Liberty Square.

There was some filming going on at the recently reopened Splash Mountain.

The Magic Kingdom’s parking lot closed this week due to crowds, but during the first hour of operation, the park was empty.  The importance of getting to the park early on busy days folks!

Walls still up at the Tiki Room.

Nikon photo spot sign that isn’t just a sticker.

Part of Adventureland is out from tarps and looking clean.

But more tarps have gone up.

Is this planter new?

Heading to Epcot!

There was some filming for HGTV going on at Epcot.

There is some interesting and apparent test paint happening at Innoventions. Which, if any, of these colors do you like?

Hopefully they pick a color scheme soon, as it is pretty ugly. Off to the Studios!

Nice flowers in the park.

Star Wars Weekends is coming soon.

Disney has announced that there will be Star Wars character meals at the Sci-Fi, and that they will be $50 per person. I will not be attending.

I’ve been told a new pre show relating to Muppets Most Wanted is coming to this attraction.

Frozen promotion continues.

Maleficent is getting pushed hard as well.

The old tip board is now a FP+ kiosk and there is a small tip board right next to it.

iPhone cases are the major item for sale at this pin trading location.
