Magic Kingdom Update: Splash Mountain Closure and More (PART 1)

As we wait for hurricane Irma to continue following its path, we thought it would be a good idea to focus on something positive and share some photos we recently took while visiting the Magic Kingdom Park (more photo-reports will be shared later today and in the coming days, unless we lose power). As you will see, Splash Mountain is currently temporarily closed for refurbishment, while buildings are hidden behind tarps (which are being removed due to the approaching storm).


Let's begin with some photos of the Seven Seas Lagoon:

The approaching hurricane has been impacting crowd levels in the parks in the past few days:
