Little by little, the expanded central hub of the Magic Kingdom Park continues to take shape, allowing even more Guests to freely walk around one of the most congested areas in any theme park. This is especially important on days like this one, when record crowds come to enjoy a day (or just an evening) in the park.
As you will see, not a lot changed since our last visit, even though tarps are finally down on Main Street and some small structures are more visible now.

Be advised that the 8:30 p.m. show of Disney's Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Review (a dinner-show offered at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground) has been cancelled for Saturday, July 4, 2015 due to unspecified reasons. The 4:00 p.m. and 6:15 p.m. shows are still planned to be performed as usual.
As a reminder, the roads around the Magic Kingdom Resort area are expected to be busier than usual tonight. Be aware that there could be potential delays.

Universal's Islands of Adventure continues to receive a lot of attention.
In addition to the new "Reign of Kong" themed land under construction next to Toon Lagoon, work is being done around multiple areas of the park, including Marvel Superhero Island, Jurassic Park, and The Lost Continent. While no other new attractions are currently under construction (other than the great King Kong attraction mentioned earlier), these minor projects are essential for the park.
