In December I spent at week on the East Coast at Walt Disney World. If you follow my regular posts from Disneyland you know I enjoy looking at what changed and is changing around the parks. AllEars asked me to share some of the construction pictures I took as I explored Walt Disney World. This four-post series will look at Animal Kingdom, Magic Kingdom, Disney Springs, and the Polynesian Village Resort and will feature a subset of my pictures. If you would like to view more from this trip here is my trip summary with links.
This part takes a look at the projects at the Magic Kingdom.
Several enhancements to the Central Plaza area between the end of Main Street and Cinderella Castle in Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom are coming over the next few months. Among the changes being made: the addition of sculpted gardens and pathways, expanded restaurant seating and even a special viewing area for fireworks and other performances. In fact, the seating outside of Casey’s Corner and The Plaza restaurant has already nearly doubled in size. The project is scheduled to be completed in 2015.
