Magic Kingdom, Downtown Disney, Epcot: News and Construction Update – Photos and Video

Hi everyone!

We’ve been experiencing beautiful weather in Orlando after the freezing temps at the start of the year. Off-season is a transitional time at Walt Disney World, and much of the update will have to do with that.  We also have a few videos to share, including “I’m Walking Right Down the Middle of Main Street USA“. One photo of the performance is below, left and you can scroll down to see the video. New blooms have been planted and you can see some of them in front of the Crystal Palace, which is in the middle of it’s rehab (below, right).

Video #1 – “I’m Walking Right Down The Middle of Main Street USA” Magic Kingdom Performers – This is performed during the morning at various locations along Main Street USA.

The two photos below show the dry moat at the Magic Kingdom (below left and right). Disney doing work on Cinderella castle and drained the moat in preparation for that.

Over at Downtown Disney, there will be a wider walkway near the McDonalds and T-Rex. A wall is around the area where the work is taking place (below left and right).


New Vinylmation t-shirts have hit the shelves, including the blue one with the Vinylmation on the side (below, left) and the black with the Vinylmation in the center (below, right).

The brown grass (below, left) at Epcot should be making way very soon for a nautical flag flower quilt – unless Disney decides to do something different! The bridge raises for the Illuminations barges (below, right), we have video of that below as well.

Video #2 – Illuminations Barges Being Brought Out – The barges for the evening show Illuminations are brought out into the World Showcase lagoon.

In the Land Pavilion the Living with the Land boat ride is on a several week rehab (below, left and right) to rework some of the queue.

An Adventurer’s Club veteran entertains the crowds in Italy (below, left). A new pizza restaurant is being built in Italy, we were told yesterday that it will be a table service restaurant (and we were also told that the Mexico pavilion will be adding a table service restaurant where the Cantina de San Angel was). The way the manager made it sound, there may also be a counter service inclusion like at Yak and Yeti, but I guess we’ll see when it is built (Click HERE for more information from the official Disney blog).

The small shop outside China has moved, with a construction wall where it formerly stood (below left and right). We also have video of the Jammitors below!

Video #3 – Jammitors Percussion, Epcot – This is the Jammitors Percussion group at Epcot.
