We spent the day at Magic Kingdom on February 14. It was a gorgeous day and a lot had changed since our last visit.
New banners were up along the entrance hallways:
Part of Exposition Hall is still under scrims:
The Confectionery is also covered by scrims:
Cinderella Castle looked gorgeous, as always:
The Adventureland bridge had been walled off for maintenance:
A temporary bridge was in place for guests to use:
The princesses were greeting guests just over the bridge in Adventureland (immediately to the right):
The Enchanted Tiki Room: Under New Management was not operating:
El Pirata Y el Perico has been renamed Tortuga Tavern:
There was some construction at Pecos Bill's:
Splash Mountain's flumes had the lap bars installed. It looked like there was more room to climb in the flumes without the handles that were there previously:
We got on the train at the Frontierland station. The narration says that the next stop is Main Street, U.S.A. but the train *did* stop at the Toontown stop. Several announcements were made to stay on the train. The station was blocked off:
The walkway from Tomorrowland to Toontown was closed off:
We got off the train at the Main Street Station. Part of City Hall is also under scrims:
We walked back to Tomorrowland. We saw that Mickey and Minnie were greeting guests to the right of Space Mountain, closer to the bathrooms:
Two lanes of the Tomorrowland Speedway were torn up:
Toontown was walled off but you could still see the sign:
The new signs around Fantasyland look great:
Mrs. Potts Cupboard has been renamed Storybook Treats:
There was a sign for the upcoming Seven Dwarf's Mine Train:
A new ice cream cart is in Fantasyland. I love that it looks like Maurice's invention from Beauty & the Beast!
The Toontown pin cart has been moved to Fantasyland:
The spine on Belle's book on the Beauty & the Beast sign says "Fantasyland":
Pinocchio was greeting guests near Pinocchio's Village Haus:
The Haunted Mansion queue line is still walled off to get ready for the new interactive queue and the turnstile is gone:
Ariel and Prince Eric were greeting guests in the Adventureland Veranda Gazebo:
We rode the Tomorrowland Transit Authority Peoplemover (so glad Peoplemover is back in the name!) and we saw that the line for the Tomorrowland Speedway was slow moving because they could only run two lanes:
Over at the Emporium, they had some 40th anniversary merchandise out:
Uptown Jewelers had a 40th anniversary Dooney + Bourke bag:
They also had the new seatbelt bags:
The Art of Disney had the 40th anniversary ears and pin set:
There was a "tunnel" to walk under along the sidewalk by the Confectionery:
The new "Let the Memories Begin!" signs are out at the front of the depot:
I took me a while to realize something was different about the map... Toontown was gone:
It really was a great day. The weather was perfect and I got to spend time with my mom and brother. We had a wonderful time just roaming around and talking... and noticing the changes since we had last been there.
Have a MAGICAL day!! :)
