More interactive elements:
The rest of the facade looks fantastic, though:
The track is missing all the pieces of theming, and it looks quite sad:
It's great to see the "old faithful" back:
They should either cover it better, or give it a theme:
It already features Prince Eric's Castle that will soon open to the public with the rest of the New Fantasyland!:
They might as well set up a tilt-a-whirl in front of the castle. The park is a disgrace. All this construction and they will be closing thunder mountain too. WOW
Personally, I appreciate the efforts underway to update the attractions. Though I would never call WDW a disgrace, I was disappointed in my last two visits to see things that had degraded. "All this construction" is what it takes to make WDW so special. Someone on this board said that the push to renovate right now stems from(at least in part) the lower cost of building materials.
On our last visit we had to skip Splash Mountain because it was closed for this type of refurbishment (it reopened the week after we visited). Although a disappointment at the time, we knew that on our next visit we would have a much better Splash Mountain to ride.
Big Thunder Mountain will reopen before you know it.
Walt Disney would never want people to see the Magic Kingdom in this state!!! Funspot is in better shape.

Walt Disney World continues to expand thanks to construction. I'm sorry to break it to you, but pixie dust isn't real. It's not rocket science. They could have done this at different times but they decided to do the improvements sooner and simultaneously for the sake of guests' future visits. Their work should be lauded for they are bettering their park as whole.
They should close the park and finish it then reopen it. This is very tacky. If they had the work done 24/7 it wouldn't take a month. I'm sorry but I worked for Disney for 13 years and this is terrible Show quality. Six Flags is better than this.
Well, I was at the park in 1973, when most of Tomorrowland was essentially a large crater during the construction of Space Mountain, Carousel of Progress, and the StarJets and PeopleMover. Didn't ruin my trip then, and some needed rehabs (and with themed scrims too!) certainly won't ruin my trip now.
The park is 40 years old. Florida has a wet and harsh climate. Wood rots, roofs fail, concrete cracks.
The refreshed parts of Frontierland, Adventureland, and Main Street look wonderful, so they should keep it up.
So let me get this right, you'll bitch and moan that the park is falling apart, and you'll continue to do the same when the parks try and correct the issues. Check. Sounds like you might be happier at Six Flags where they all have some downtime throughout the year to fix their issues.
Yeah, people complain when they're fixing stuff, I don't get that.
So you guys can't complain about the current state of Splash then.
SIX FLAGS? Have you been the one in Georgia? They could never shut down one of the parks as there is always crowds. There will always be refurbs and something to fix... No matter it's a SPECAIL place!!!
