Cinderella Castle Painting Progress, TRON Lightcycle Run Construction Remains Paused, Contemporary Walkway Finished

We’ve got a small update on the construction projects that have restarted near Magic Kingdom, and an update on one that remains paused.

As we first reported yesterday, Disney is beginning to restart construction projects at Walt Disney World, and the easiest one to spot is the Cinderella Castle repainting. It’s a gloomy morning in Orlando today, so we didn’t see any cherry pickers up at Cinderella Castle, but we were able to see the progress that crews made yesterday.

First, here’s a look at our photos from yesterday.

And here’s a look at Cinderella Castle from this morning.

Here’s an alternate angle, looking more face-on at the east side of Cinderella Castle.

Another big project at Magic Kingdom is the TRON Lightcycle Run in Tomorrowland. Work on this project remains paused and has not resumed since construction shut down in late March.

Thankfully, the indoor portion of track has remained under cover (mostly) from the elements as the building framing and roof was completed before the shutdown.

Other elements are exposed, but they are simply framing at this point and not themed.

On the exterior portion of the track, this framing has existed since we took an aerial flyover on the first day of closure as seen in the second photo below.

So, construction has not resumed at TRON Lightcycle Run, but one project that has seen some movement overnight is the walkway between Contemporary and Magic Kingdom. The construction walls came down overnight, revealing a walkway without the Walk Around the World bricks.

As always, keep checking back with us here at for the latest Disney Parks news and photos. We’ll continue to bring you news and photos, where possible, through the Disney Parks closure due to Coronavirus (COVID-19) and will resume our normal coverage once the parks reopen to guests on July 11th!
