Welcome to Main Street U.S.A.:
Many facades are being refurbished:
You can clearly see a steel frame behind the tarps:
The drawbridge is being completely replaced:
More new railings are being added on the castle walls:
Going deeper into Fantasyland:
Some work is being done behind the massive facade of "it's a small world":
Alice in Wonderland received some upgrades in the past few months, and it looks great:
Moving on to Frontierland, we noticed these new railings, which are also being installed around Main Street U.S.A. at the Magic Kingdom Park here in Florida. They look good in both locations, no doubt:
Some work is also being done on a facade next to the Golden Horseshoe:
The refurbished Big Thunder Mountain Railroad is fantastic. The new track is incredibly smooth, and the new effects on the last lift-hill are absolutely great. We really want this to happen to Magic Kingdom's version:
That said, the ride went down multiple times during our visit:
New Orleans Square received a new addition. It's a new, enclosed walkway that is part of Club 33:
Heading toward the future:
In Tomorrowland, the Guardians of the Galaxy sneak peek continues to be shown, which is basically a long advertisement for a new Marvel movie. The theater doesn't even use the awesome bouncing floor with this (it only moves twice, and for a second). In addition to that, most of the brand-new yellow 3-D glasses that were supposed to be sent to Disneyland have been recently rerouted to Walt Disney World. Even though Disneyland's theater uses purple glasses, it looks like one of their 3-D shows might close soon...
Now we know where you've been these past few days! Great update on the original Disneyland. I always chuckle when I see the castle there. It's so short compared to WDW, but I'm glad they've kept it as it's a classic.
Disneyland is our home park, so you can imagine our awe when we saw the Magic Kingdom castle for the first time last year. I think you brought us your Florida weather - we had an uncharacteristically humid rain storm a few days ago!
