Magic Kingdom Update: Miscellaneous Refurbishments

The slower season is the best time for the Walt Disney World Resort to work on refurbishing the buildings and themed facades that may be faded or have other issues due to being exposed to many different weather conditions.
This afternoon, we will take a look around the majority of the lands of the Magic Kingdom Park (with the exception of the hub, as that will be covered in an upcoming update) to see what work is currently being done. Enjoy the photos:

The Uptown Jewelers store (located along Main Street, U.S.A.) recently got its sign back:

Cinderella Castle:

Let's begin to explore the other lands of the park:

Work continues on the new Skipper Canteen:

Pirates of the Caribbean continues to pull large crowds:

A section of the Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe is being refurbished:

Notice the different color scheme:

The exterior of Country Bear Jamboree building is also being refurbished:

The Diamond Horseshoe is still temporarily closed: is the Liberty Tree Tavern:

Work continues in Fantasyland:

The tent-like structure above the entrance of Mickey's PhilarMagic is being repainted:

It really needed attention:

A not-so-busy Fantasyland Forest:

The Seven Dwarfs Mine Train's waterfall was not working during our visit:

Let's conclude by taking a quick look around Tomorrowland:

  1. Last October it was a sunny morning at bag check. Handed my stuffed in its pocket rain jacket to security. "A pillow?" he asked. "No, it's my rain jacket." "Oh come now, do you really think it's going to rain today?" he asks with a mirthful look. "No," I said, "I KNOW it's going to rain, always does in the afternoon". He just smiled "You might be right!" And yes, it did rain.

    Thanks for going out on such a dreary looking day!

  2. Mine train looks terrible in that picture.

  3. Please tell me it wasn't like this all day. Did the sun come out at all?

    Is this weather typical for this time of year?

  4. @Andy: No, the weather is absolutely gorgeous during this time of the year here in Central Florida, with very little rain and temperatures in the low-to-mid 80s. That was only an exception to the rule.

  5. I wish the articles would be posted with the date of when the photos were actually taken.
