Welcome to this week’s construction updates from Disney World!
We’re giving you a look at the latest updates on the projects underway throughout the Disney World Parks and Resorts. There’s a LOT going on as we approach the 50th Anniversary, so let’s check it all out.
Peter Pan’s Flight
At the classic Fantasyland attraction, Peter Pan’s Flight, a themed scrim is still in place surrounding the buildings.
We still think this look is much better than the previous brown scrim, but we’d (unsurprisingly) prefer to see the building itself. Hopefully, once all this refurbishment is finished, Peter Pan’s Flight will be looking better than ever.
Cinderella Castle is getting ready for its makeover! The surrounding moat remains drained as work takes place in preparation for all the exciting updates.
An update on the work taking place at the castle stage shows the addition of ice and water shields, which are the coverings you can see.
Although Cinderella Castle hasn’t been looking super magical recently, it did receive the first feature of its 50th Anniversary Makeover! This pretty gold, purple, and blue decoration can be seen on the left side of the castle.
We can’t wait to see more decorations covering the castle!
Because Gaston wants his tavern to be the BEST in the kingdom, it was time for a little sprucing up. The sign at Gaston’s Tavern recently got a fresh coat of paint!
This week, the fountain in front of the tavern was drained.
Then, when we returned over the weekend, the fountain had been refilled.
Just another way to woo Belle, we suppose.
A large crane held construction workers as they worked on the main centerpiece of EPCOT’s upcoming nighttime show, Harmonious.
In this close-up, you can see Cast Members standing on the lower deck of the barge.
We can’t wait to see what other special effects this massive show will offer!
It’s business as usual over at the site of EPCOT’s upcoming indoor coaster, Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind. More blue paneling is being added to the exterior of the attraction.
We wish we could see what was going on inside!
Polynesian Village Resort
Although there’s still quite a ways to go, a lot of progress has been made at this site.
We’ll be keeping a close eye on construction as the resort approaches its summer reopening date.
Pop Century Resort
The Hippy Dippy Pool at Disney’s Pop Century Resort had previously been closed for refurbishment. Now, it’s been refilled and it’s back up and running!
When we stopped by, lots of guests were splashing around!
Beach Club Resort
Refurbishment continues on the exterior of Disney’s Beach Club Resort. However, it doesn’t appear that anything major is taking place.
And that’s our round-up of construction updates from the week! Check back with us for more news from Disney World.
