Have a long update from our visit to the Magic Kingdom this weekend. So long it’s going to take at least two posts (Update: here’s part two) to get it all in. Nearly every pic has a larger version if you click on it to help you see the detail since some of the photos are taken from a distance due to construction walls and what not.
There are still many tarps and bridges under construction around the park. I didn’t take new photos of Main Street or Adventureland, but there is still work under way in both locations.
Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom was option for play testing again today. They continue to refine the check-in process. Remember to bring your Sorcerer’s Key along with your deck. You an ask for five cards for every member with a valid admission, but they default to just give you five cards per party. While it’s still only on the ‘easy’ level, if you have a 4-10 year old this is a lot of fun. For older kids (adults too) it’s a great collectible. Addicting, really.
The tent is almost done for Dumbo’s interactive queue area. But they still have some camouflaging to do on the backside. “Go-Away Green” just ain’t going to cut it here. Too much of this is ‘on stage’.
Work on the Fantasyland Station looks like it’s made a lot of progress. Scaffolding is down and a lot of final detail work is going on. Parts of Storybook Circus are scheduled to open in Spring 2012. At this point it looks like it will be the Fantasyland Train Station, The Great Goofini, and at least one of the new Dumbo spinners. It may be late spring, but it looks like they’ll meet that goal.
More photos of New Fantasyland and other construction around the Magic Kingdom coming in part two tomorrow.
