Dirk Wallen’s 1/11/13 Magic Kingdom Photo Report

Jan 11, 2013 by     1 Comment     Posted under: The Magic Kingdom

WDWNT Reporter Dirk Wallen visited the Magic Kingdom earlier today and has some great newsworthy photos to share with us (including our first look at the Big Thunder Mountain interactive queue), so let’s take a look:

More RFID entrances being installed at the Magic Kingdom

Kodak references still up at Town Square Theater

Plenty of Valentine’s Day treats available already

Some of the Hall of Champions facade is behind tarps again

The Adventureland Veranda is behind tarps now

This area next to Aloha Isle is behind tarps now too. We think it might be related to the Adventureland interactive game

Splash Mountain is closed until March

The ride is drained and a lot of the ride has already been ripped up

Seemingly overnight, props have been installed in the Big Thunder Mountain Railroad queue

We can see a lot of things labeled “explosives”

For a queue that has always been pretty bland, it actually looks nice now

FastPass+ kiosk in the queue

A look across the Rivers of America at the new Fantasyland/Liberty Square pathway

The Tangled restrooms are looking great

Looks like they are almost done

No visible progress on Princess Fairytale Hall

The Cheshire Cafe sign is back

A new Walt Disney pin set was released with images of him on luggage

Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom now has a mystery pin set

The Magic Kingdom map has changed again and for the first time in my lifetime, it does not have a Kodak logo

PhotoPass now graces the back cover instead of Kodak
