Magic Kingdom Update: USAF Thunderbirds Flyover, New Fantasyland, Haunted Mansion Graveyard – Photos and Video

Hi everyone!

Yesterday was gorgeous, a perfect day for the United States Air Force Thunderbirds flyover that was part of Air Force Week in Central Florida. The Main Street Philharmonic (below, left) played to the crowds before the parade.  Members of the Thunderbirds and other Air Force members  (below, right) were the Grand Marshals of the parade.

A closer look at the servicemen (and servicewomen) who served as Grand Marshals (below, left) and others who looked on as the festivities took place (below, right).

Members of the US Air Force wait for the flyover to begin (below, left). The USAF Thunderbirds fly over Main Street USA in a six-plane “Delta” formation (below, right).

The sky was beautiful for the flyover (below, left), which was a “blink and you’ll miss it” event. The planes fly past the Main Street Train Station (below, right).

Video #1 – Magic Kingdom – United States Air Force Thunderbirds Flyover, 10/26/10 – Walt Disney World had a flyover the Magic Kingdom as part of Air Force Week.

There have been a lot of changes in Fantasyland in just a couple of days! Trees have been added along the construction wall (below left and right). They look very nice and help beautify the area and also help block the view from the ground of the new Fantasyland taking shape.

The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh is closed through November 14th (below, left). Another view of the tree-lined Fantasyland wall (below, right).

We rode Dumbo The Flying Elephant (below, left) to take photos and video and you can see that the Under The Sea: Journey of the Little Mermaid show building is really taking shape. (below, right). Prior to the construction I had rarely taken the time to appreciate Dumbo but the line actually moves quickly and it is quite enjoyable. Now I encourage everyone to ride even those without kids!

Two more views of The Little Mermaid (below left and right). It’s very exciting to see progress, I’m looking forward to the changes to this area of the park.

Construction is also happening on the Be Our Guest Restaurant site (below, left). We were also able to look down on The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh (below, right).

Video #2 – Fantasyland Construction, Magic Kingdom Walt Disney World from Dumbo 10/26/10 – You’ll see that trees have now been added, blocking some of the view – but it is still exciting to see so much going on!

A friend told us to head over to Tom Sawyer Island to get a good look at the Haunted Mansion graveyard work (below, left and right).

I’ve read that there is supposed to be interactive queue elements put in – but nothing has been officially announced as far as I have seen. When walking through the queue now, all you see are the blocked-off windows (below left and right).

Video #3 – Haunted Mansion Graveyard Refurbishment from Tom Sawyer Island, Magic Kingdom 10/26/10 – The Haunted Mansion Graveyard is supposed to soon have an interactive queue, we took some video from Tom Sawyers Island on the progress.
