WDWNT Reporter Adam Roth visited the Magic Kingdom on July 3rd to catch the first performance of “Celebrate America!” fireworks and has a lot of newsworthy photos of the on-going work in Fantasyland & beyond to share with us:
Wait. Could it be?
It is! The Tomorrowland ball… water thing is back from refurbishment!
The Dumbo queue is pretty much framed in Storybook Circus
While they don’t make the experience any better, I applaud the effort
We don’t really have a choice…
Looks like work started on the entrance to Big Top Souvenirs
The rock-work on Under The Sea: Journey of the Little Mermaid has made some major progress
Actually looks like the character paint is in place, the brown area might be finished!
This piece at the end is far from done
Back to the Storybook Circus construction
Barnstormer/Great Goofini is visible through the Dumbo queue
Vertical construction happening, looks like it may be for the new train station and the Casey Jr. Roundhouse
It was crowded, but it’s to be expected on days like this
The Beauty and the Beast realm is coming along very quickly
More on that shortly…
WHERE’S PIGLET? Piglet missing from the Winnie the Pooh entrance
Maurice’s Amazing Popping Machine, the first piece of the Beauty and the Beast area open to guests
Probably the most exciting food cart ever…
Beauty and the Beast realm from a distance
A little more of the rock-work appearing
Maurice’s Cottage, the entrance to Enchanted Tales with Belle
The first pillar of the castle walls has risen over the walls!
We’ve been waiting a while for this
This will eventually cut across the existing Dumbo plot
You know your a Disney fan when you get excited over walls
The scrims block a lot of the view of the Beauty & The Beast area
More of the mesh is getting covered with what will be rock-work
CASTE WALL! This is what happens when news gets slow…
The Skyway is gone!
The clock tower remains
Just a big base remains
This will soon be a pathway between Liberty Square and Fantasyland
This will soon be an extended interactive queue
Goodbye Skyway station…
The Frontierland Shootin’ Arcade is closed until September
The Pecos Bill’s facade is still behind tarps
The walls at the Enchanted Tiki Room moved out a while ago, guests can now not enter the area
No visible progress
Coming on or around August 15th…
A lot of shows in Monstropolis today…
Tortuga Tavern and Tomorrowland Terrace names make the board
Happy 4th of Duffy!
Is this business casual?
Guests packed the streets for the July 3rd presentation of “Celebrate America!” fireworks
Time to wait…
I think if you print these out, you can make a flip book!
After-party at Club 626! Anyone? No one?
So crowded, we have to walk around the park
No line for Mickey, but what else is new…
Goodnight Magic Kingdom, and happy 4th of July!
