When you head to Disney World, you’re likely to come across some ongoing construction projects, big or small.
Although many of Disney’s major projects were completed just in time for the 50th anniversary celebrations, construction work can still be found at some selected locations. So, to help you prepare for your next trip (or to enjoy your curiosities), we offer you the latest review of all the advances in the construction of parks and resorts.
We found out last month Mickey’s PhilharMagic would close in on Magic Kingdom to install a new scene with Pixar characters Coco. The attraction closed on October 11, and it seems that not only the show is updated. At the beginning of the week, only construction walls could be seen in front of the entrance …
… and on weekends on Master Mickey was gone of the sign i the rest had been covered.
The attraction is will reopen on November 11, so we won’t have to wait much longer to see the debut of the new scene. And in the meantime, we’ll be waiting to see if other changes arrive in the entry area.

We shared an update from new walkway to Magic Kingdom Ferry Boat pier last week and now it is complete!
The new loading dock allows access to the second floor of the ship (so it is not necessary to use the ladders), but according to a member of the cast with whom we spoke it will only be used during the busiest times of the day or when the monorail is low.
Disney’s Animal Kingdom
We have also been waiting for the removal of the withdrawn attraction, Primitive whirlpool, at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. In a few weeks, it is like that past the attraction we once knew (and which some of us loved) to a pile of metal.
But hey, now you have a good view of all the fun signage surrounding DinoLand USA.
Flying friends in flight
A few years ago, Disney transformed the long-established bird show into Disney’s Animal Kingdom UP! A great bird adventure. The show featured characters from the film interacting with exotic birds, but the show has reopened with a new name: Flying friends in flight. And, this week we noticed the change has finally given way to signage around the theater.
As a reference, this is what it looked like before …
… and here it is now!
Well, it’s already up for this week’s Disney World construction update. Of course, we are always on the lookout for the latest updates, paint jobs, building walls and more, so be sure to stay tuned to DFB.
