ICYMI: The Magic Kingdom & Contemporary Resort
MagicalNewsLIVE treated us to a tour of Magic Kingdom Park and Disney’s Contemporary Resort
The wait for my next trip to Walt Disney World seems interminable. So I am very grateful to have the twice-weekly(ish) visits to WDW from Nick at MagicalNewsLIVE to stem the tide.
On Wednesday, June 2, Nick took us on a roundabout tour from the TTC to Tomorrowland and finishing up in Disney’s Contemporary Resort!
A Photographic Stroll
Let’s take you through some highlights before we put you on the Monorail.
We started at the TTC – Walt Disney World’s Ticket and Transportation Center.
Here comes the Walt Disney World Monorail…
Arriving at Magic Kingdom on the Monorail…
Scrim is still up around the Main Street Train Station.
But the Dapper Dans were there to greet Nick and the audience.
Gaston boasted to the crowd during a cavalcade on Main Street, U.S.A.
Speaking of dapper, Cinderella Castle is looking pretty impressive as it gets ready for the 50th anniversary.
Back to Tomorrowland
Walking into Tomorrowland. The Purple Wall (of Instagram fame) is in the background.
Nick wondered aloud if Monsters Inc. Laugh Floor will return soon.
Another view of Cinderella’s Castle.
The Rivers of America as seen from Frontierland.
Uh oh. Captain Hook is about to be reunited with his hand.
The Tomorrowland Terrace is a great cut-through to Tomorrowland.
On the PeopleMover…
The Tron coaster is coming along; no word yet as to when it will open.
The sun didn’t come out. But basking in the beauty of the castle, Nick told his audience that the building only needs one more piece to be complete for the 50th – the anniversary medallion.
A Frightful Finish
The Haunted Mansion was a walk-on!
As spooky as ever, of course!
“Grim grinning ghosts, come out to socialize…”
Nick took a ride with Dumbo…
…and watched guests on Seven Dwarves Mine Train.
Heading toward the exit and the Monorail.
The Contemporary Resort!
And a view of the outside facade.
Of course, you don’t need us to describe the whole night when you can watch the video!
Wishing Upon A Star at Magic Kingdom & Contemporary Resort!
