Well if you haven’t been to the Magic Kingdom and Hollywood Studios lately you are in for some big surprises.
Construction is finished in the Magic Kingdom surrounding Main St. USA. As you approach the castle you will notice a beautiful new viewing area for the parade and fireworks. This area will be designated for fastpass for parades and fireworks, however it is a perfect place to sit down and unwind during the day. With that said, it really does open up the area that became very congested at every time of day. It will be interesting to see how they manage the fastpass area. Out inDisneyLand they have a viewing area like this and their are different tiers of fastpasses based on if you had a dining package or selected the fast pass.
Over in Hollywood Studios, the view has improved! Mickey’s Sorcerer Hat has been removed! I was on the side that I thought this would have been a better fit over near Fantasmic, not taking away the view of Grauman’s Chinese Theater. Having the sorcerer hat removed now opens up the view and should give a nice area in front of the theatre once again instead of a pin station. We will see how well that is taken into account, since that is a major staple of the park entrance!
Disney will always have construction going on in the parks. In Animal Kingdom they are working on an entire area dedicated to the movie Avatar. Rumors have started of a Star Wars and Pixar lands coming to Hollywood Studios. They always come up with ideas to make me come back! Ya, I’m going with that..LOL!!
