Just when you thought all the construction was done at Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World, there is a new project going on. Walt Disney World recently announced that they are enlarging the Hub area in front of Cinderella Castle. Keep reading for photos of the construction related to this project.
The construction walls are up between the end of Main Street USA and Cinderella Castle. If one of your favorite things to do was enjoy your lunch at Casey’s Corner outside gazing at the Castle, your view will now be blocked. The good news is that if you are taking a picture down Main Street USA there is nothing that will block your view of the Castle.
They are adding another ring to the hub. This will allow more room for guests to view the fireworks and parades. The additional walkways should help to cut down on the congestion afterwards also. It is also rumored that the grassy areas will be covered with artificial turf so guests can sit here also. They are also making a Main Street USA bypass so after these shows it isn’t total chaos as everyone tries to leave Magic Kingdom at the same time.
The water is still in the moat up near the Castle. The work being done will reduce some of the water areas and you may find some landscaping is missing. The pictures below were taken on the bridge going into Tomorrowland looking toward The Plaza restaurant.
Here is the other side of the construction on the Casey’s side of the street.
Here is the view from Casey’s Corner towards the Castle.
Once you are past the construction, the park is looking great! You can still have a magical time. See you in the parks!
