With every year that goes by, the Magic Kingdom Park continues to get busier and busier. Higher parking and ticket prices do not appear to affect attendance (at least for now), forcing the Walt Disney World Resort to find ways to allow additional people inside the park while trying to avoid reaching capacity.
In addition to the new Fantasyland Forest and the expanded hub, the park is now using the Main Street Bypass on a nightly basis to move Guests around.

What was formerly a bare backstage road is now a themed walkways that includes period-specific lights, themed billboards, carefully-maintained planters, multiple trees, permanent walls, and even some new facades to mask the unthemed backside of some of the buildings facing Main Street, U.S.A.

While there is still some work left, the majority of the bypass seems to be very well themed. Take a look:

First of all, the wall next to the entrance of the bypass closest to Tomorrowland has a new facade:

As you can see, while work is still in progress, this side of the building already looks much better:

We expect this rectangular column to be masked in the near future:

It's now time to explore the actual bypass, which only opens during the evening hours:

As you can see, it looks like a quiet, little park that could be found in any city around the country:

Some themed props can be seen in a few areas of this bypass:

As expected, the walkway is very expansive, allowing Guests to bypass Main Street, U.S.A.:

There are multiple gates throughout the area. These can only be accessed by Cast Members:

Looking back, toward the central hub of the park:

And that is all for now. Thank you for visiting the Main Street Bypass with us, and see you again soon.
