The Magic Kingdom hub construction continues at a quicker pace than we’ve previously seen. This past Saturday we spent some time walking around the hub to get some pictures of the construction. If you’d like to see how the work has progressed, check out our previous Magic Kingdom Hub construction update. We also have a sneak peek at the Castle Dream Light installation at the end of this post.
Magic Kingdom Hub construction
The walk down Main Street U.S.A. hasn’t changed much with the exception of the crane behind the castle. The walls remain up as you approach the hub.
Walking towards Casey’s Corner we notice a new park map to help guests navigate the Kingdom.
Continuing our walk clock-wise, we took this picture from in front of Casey’s Corner.
A little bit further down we start to see the faux-bridge.
The faux-bridge starts to come into view better as we make our way towards the Crystal Palace.
We get a really good look at the construction from the tiny Adventureland bridge near the Crystal Palace.
Now let’s head back to Main Street U.S.A. and take a right past The Plaza Restaurant heading towards Tomorrowland. Nothing has changed here as the outdoor seating remains right next to the wall.
Walking through the Tomorrowland Terrace we get a good look at the Tomorrowland side of the Hub construction.
One of my favorite ways to show you guys the Magic Kingdom is to put you in my shoes, virtually. Check out this interactive Photosynth from the Tomorrowland Terrace Restaurant.
Let’s keep walking through the Tomorrowland Terrace Restaurant and take a look back at the construction from the Tomorrowland bridge.
One more Photosynth from the Tomorrowland bridge.
Here’s a good look at the space that will be freed up when the construction is complete.
We’ll round out the hub construction part of our review with some #DisneySide pics of Stitch on the construction wall near the Tomorrowland Bridge.
Castle Dream Lights
Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party may just be starting, but that doesn’t mean Disney isn’t preparing for the next party already. The crane is on site through the end of this month to hang the Castle Dream Lights for the Christmas season. Here are a couple pictures of the installation. Click on the images for larger versions.
One important thing to note is that during the installation the shortcut from the Merida Meet & Greet area to the Castle (past the Wishing Well) is closed off.
