There sure is a whole lotta construction happening in the Magic Kingdom these days! While it’s not quite as intrusive as all of the work happening in Disneyland, we’re starting to feel a little claustrophobic with all these walls going up!
The kids’ water play area in Storybook Circus is getting a few updates. The interactive area features Casey Jr. – the train from the classic Dumbo film – along with a monkey, elephant, and camel that spray water.
It is scheduled to reopen on March 25, 2019 – here’s hoping it doesn’t get too hot in the Sunshine State before then! ????
We also spotted some construction walls up around the Castle Couture shop.
It seems like the shop is just getting a bit of a facelift. It’s still open during construction, so no worries if you were planning on picking up a princess outfit on your next visit to the Magic Kingdom!
Everyone’s favorite crane is still hanging around! The crane is used to take down the holiday Dream Lights on Cinderella Castle, so we expect to see it gone soon.
Finally, we stopped by Tomorrowland to check up on the progress of that Tron attraction moving in next to Space Mountain!
The coaster-style attraction, which is based on the TRON Lightcycle Power Run at Shanghai Disneyland, is a HUGE construction project resulting in the temporary closure of TWO Magic Kingdom attractions: The Walt Disney World Railroad and Tomorrowland Speedway.
We spotted the Tomorrowland Speedway cars parked and up on lifts for some down-time refurbishments. The Tomorrowland Speedway is expected to reopen this summer. There’s no word on when The Walt Disney World Railroad will reopen just yet.
Over in Storybook Circus we were able to see a different view of the construction — including a better look what that crane is up to.
The Tron attraction is set to open in 2021 to coincide with Walt Disney World’s 50th Anniversary.
