Visited the Magic Kingdom today for another quick little photo update.  Construction continues to move forward on the Mine Train coaster, with new track pieces in place, I wouldn’t be surprised if the track is completed soon.  Painting has started on the rocks on the outside of the coaster and structural work continues on the rear side of the mountain.  A lot of facades are being refurbished throughout Liberty Square in the Magic Kingdom, so a lot of temporary murals are covering them.

Stay with us after the break for the full photo update.
