I was able to get out to the Magic Kingdom and catch up on some of the construction and other things going on throughout the park today. Construction is coming along on the Mine Train coaster, the Splash Mountain refurbishment looks very nice with its fresh coat of paint and refurbishment. The new expansion of the Grand Floridian DVC area continues to grow as well. Work also continues on the Main Street Bakery transforming it into Starbucks. Check out the full photo update after the break.
Construction on the DVC Grand Floridian expansion
The expansion is coming along nicely!
The other side of the expansion.
Let’s move on over to some Seven Dwarfs Mine Train construction…
This is one of the lift hills
Details are starting to show on the exterior of the mountain
An overview of the mountain construction area
Disney has opened up a few peep holes to get a look at the construction.
Here is a wider view of the entire construction site
This is another one of the ‘peep holes’. This one offered a great view of a piece of track not yet installed.
These next few photos are taken from the other side of the mountain showing exterior work
A lot of rock!

Another angle of the main lift hill and beginning of the drop
Now off to the new Tangled Toilets!
Here is another…
This one is my favorite…
This is the entrance to the womens restroom. No, i did not go in…
I love the employee only sign
The theming throughout the area is amazing. Really helped out that whole area.
Rapunzel’s tower is the backdrop for the area
The stream that runs through the area adds a nice touch
This area is filled with tables and chairs and something really neat, charging stations for cell phones!
This is what the cell phone charger is located in
This section of the new Tangled area has, from what I have heard, nine hidden Pascal’s, the chameleon from Tangled. I found 6
This last one is a bit tricky to spot, see if you can find him
A great shot of the Tangled tower and the waterfall
A close up of the tower
This is the new path next to Haunted Mansion that heads up towards It’s a Small World and the new Tangled restroom area
Swung by Splash Mountain to snap a few photos of its refurbishment. Looks good with its paint job!

A few other misc. photos throughout the Magic Kingdom. Some exterior work being done in Liberty Square
Signs are up in front of the Main Street Bakery for the transformation to Starbucks. Until then, you can get your breakfast fix at the Tomorrowland Terrace
