    everytime i see magic kingdom, namely main street, i cant help to think compared to disneyland, magic kingdom is just a theme park, nothing magical, has no “home” feeling like disneyland does

      ^to me it is magical because I haven’t been it foooooooor ever
      Thanks Cory

  • Beautiful photos Cory! Those fireworks shots are unbelievable.

    Main Street looks so much better now that the scrims are down, but does everything look a bit more plastic since this refurb?

    • Cory Disbrow

      No, I wouldn’t say they look plastic. I think they just look so me compared to how they looked before the refurb that it might come across that way. In person, they’re stunning!

    Amazing fireworks pictures! I’ve never seen them live at the Studios but I bet it’s really nice. Why are they an operational nightmare? They performed Sorcery in the Sky for years.

    • Cory Disbrow

      It becomes an operational nightmare because of the location in which they shoot off the fireworks. They do it directly behind the Great Movie Ride. That causes the Great Movie Ride, Pixar Place, Backlot, and the Streets of America to all have to close early.

    Wow, your photos are amazing. Thank you for posting the article !

    I hope that they put the trees back on the east side of Main Street in the Magic Kingdom. If you look at the pics down Main Street to Cinderella’s Castle, the trees are missing on the right hand side. It may be that they had to move the trees out to do the refurbishment work on the facades. I hope it doesn’t stay this way, with no trees on the east side of Main Street. Magic Kingdom, bring the trees back!

    I was surprised to see that the Roy E. Disney window was removed during the Main Street refurb. I can’t remember a case of anyone’s window being removed. In addition to Roy, his ex-wife Patty and his children were also named on the window. I would be interested to hear why this happened and if the window is coming back at some point.

    I would love to see the fireworks at DHS on a regular basis. Even if it was only on Friday or Saturday. I think having a show themed to movie music would be spectacular and make the Studios a really go-to place at night.

    do those fireworks look as good as they do in the pictures in person? If so…wow…I think fireworks at disneyworld for the 4th of july may need to be added to my to do list!
