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.

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
