Everywhere you look there is construction happening around Disney World!
While it seems that the construction projects are never ending, there are a lot of super exciting changes coming to Disney World. Let’s take a look at all of the progress this week!
Cinderella Castle Stage
Cinderella Castle has received a MAJOR glow up recently, and we are loving the new look! A lot of work has happened on the castle stage, and we’ve been tracking all of the progress for over a month now.
The stage was blocked off at the beginning of February with gray scrim and some bushes.
Then the surface layer of the stage was removed to reveal the wooden slat supports.
And finally this week, we noticed that new support beams have been added!
Does this mean that this stage saga might finally be coming to an end?
We’re very curious to see if this ends up being just some standard stage maintenance, or if Disney has something big planned for the 50th celebration!
Swiss Family Treehouse
The latest that was added to the refurb list was Swiss Family Treehouse, which was closed from March 12th to March 25th.
And as of this weekend, it has officially opened! Welcome back, Swiss family!
Minor updates were made to this classic attraction, including new netting on the pathway.
And the sign telling the backstory about the attraction is visible again!
We’re happy to be able to see those killer views of Cinderella Castle from the top again!
We took a gander at Magic Kingdom’s most-anticipated attraction, TRON Lightcycle Run!
The canopy continues to get bigger and more imposing!
The best views to see the progress are from the Tomorrowland Speedway attraction.
No opening date has been confirmed yet, but we hope that it it will be ready soon!
Due to its everlasting transformation, EPCOT looks very different these days!
And in the Future World area of Epcot, there is a LOT of construction happening!
Work is happening to update what was MouseGear and Electric Umbrella. Recently, we noticed that one of the previous entrances to MouseGear is being updated.
It looks like work in the breezeway between the two is quickly progressing!
We can’t wait until this area of EPCOT is open again! Currently, walking all the way around on the current pathways is a bit of a pain, and it will be so nice once the central paths are open again!
World Showcase Lagoon’s current eyesore, the nighttime show Harmonious, continues to make progress!
Recently, we spotted some testing happening on the barge arms (or the upside-down spider legs as it’s affectionately known around here).
And this week, a third barge joined the party!
They keep multiplying, and now we’re just waiting on one more barge! Don’t worry, we’ll keep reporting on all the things Harmonious!
Guardians of the Galaxy
We are so ready to rock the galaxy on the Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind coaster!
We’ve seen a sneak peek of the ride vehicles and we’re OBSESSED. An official opening date hasn’t been announced, but it’s exciting to visibly see the construction take place!
We spotted more blue wrapping taking place in the entrance, as well as work continuing on the roof.
The ride will feature the first-ever “reverse launch into space”, and we can’t wait to experience it ourselves.
We’ll keep you updated on all of the construction progress!
Polynesian Village Resort
We previously reported that you’ll need to take a bit of a detour walking between the Polynesian and the Grand Floridian.
We snagged a close up look at the work happening on the pathway this week!
Plan extra time if you are traveling between the two resorts!
And that’s all of the construction updates from this week around Disney World! Keep checking back for progress on these projects and more!
