    That is a really nice hub…

    Great update! Have they done that before where they’ve taken the whole Astro-Orbiter off it’s platform to refurbish it? That’s pretty cool! Lot of work to do at the hub. When is it supposed to be finished? Park looks great otherwise.

    I didn’t notice the long standby lines at Pirates when I was there, may just be a problem during the day. Overall, the park looked good. On Expedition Everest they replaced the flags at the end of the 1st forward part of the track and the bird was back out again. Summit Plummit at Blizzard Beach still looks really bad. The “snow” on the roof is black and has been that way for a long time. Hopefully you can keep us updated on that. Thanks!

    I’m a LITTLE disconcerted by all the scrims and refurbs when I only have 2.5 months to go before my own trip… *fingers crossed*

      I was there last week and they didn’t bother me too much. Still a lot of great places to take pictures.

    What I wouldn’t give to be there.

    It looks good. I am sure the hub will be done by the time I come back in January.

  • MikeBlakesley

    The hub isn’t supposed to be completely done until spring 2015 I think — unless they have moved the date up some.

    “Patriotic bunting is still up on Main Street, and probably will be there until 4th of July.”

    really? at disneyland it’s up until labor day weekend.

    What year were these photos taken?

  • AaroniusPolonius

    With 18 plus million visitors a year going to MK, I’m not getting on them about the hub. Obviously they need to expand it.

    I will get on them regarding the timing of the construction, however. It seems as if they are entering the thick of their tourist season right when they are entering the thick of their hub work, and that’s a pity.

    Ah, well. I don’t run the joint.

    The park looks really well maintained and quite beautiful, otherwise.
