This past Saturday I took to Magic Kingdom to check out the construction being done for the enhancements to The Hub. The foundation for the faux-bridge is coming together nicely in front of both the Plaza Restaurant and Casey’s Corner. I’m going to try and do my best to visually explain the current state of the construction to give you a better idea of what to expect when you visit the Magic Kingdom.
P.S. Keep reading for an immersive and interactive view of the construction at the end of the story!
The first time you’ll spot the construction is when you’re walking down Main Street U.S.A. Here’s a look at the Castle with construction walls on either side of the street.
Turning right, heading towards The Plaza Restaurant, we see some seating areas pushed up against the construction walls. If you’re sitting in these areas you have no view of the Castle or anything else besides the walls on one side and The Plaza Restaurant on the other.
Going further to the right, into Tomorrowland Terrace, I took a couple of photos looking back at the construction. Note that there are no construction walls here so guests have a clear view of the construction.
Here’s a great panoramic view of the construction from the Tomorrowland Terrace Restaurant:
Now let’s take a left from Main Street and head towards Casey’s Corner. As you can see there is more filled in land here than on the Tomorrowland side of The Hub. It is filled in from the Main Street bridge to the new faux-bridge. NOTE: The average guest won’t see this construction as it’s completely surrounded by construction walls (unlike the Tomorrowland side).
Here is a shot from the small bridge in front of The Crystal Palace looking back towards Main Street U.S.A.
As we continue to walk clock-wise past The Crystal Palace we see more construction walls. Disney has put up Timon and Pumbaa as well as a few reminders to be using the #DisneySide hashtag when tweeting about your vacation.
As we walk back towards the hub we notice that nearly 1/2 of the hub is surrounded by construction walls. Luckily there is a pretty nice castle to draw our attention away from it, but here’s one more picture from the Adventureland side of The Hub.
Finally, check out this interactive panorama from the center of The Hub looking back down Main Street U.S.A.
