Hello from the Magic Kingdom! Or more specifically, from the construction site that is Magic Kingdoms entrance. When guests arrive off the monorail, ferry, or bus, theyre greeted with a mess of green construction walls. All of these enhancements (as theyre called by Disney) are happening in preparation for Walt Disney World Resorts 50th anniversary.

The most noticeable progress has been on the structure nearest Seven Seas Lagoon.

Since our last update, construction wrap has been put on the structure, covering the insulation. The buildings exterior panels have begun to go up.

On the underside of the roofs eaves, paneling has been installed.

The same panels have been added to the underside of the open air sections ceiling. Lighting fixtures have been hung. The bulbs match the other lights around Magic Kingdoms front entrance. Gutters have been attached to the front of the buildings roof, as well.

A new gabled dormer has appeared on top of the rooftop. This dormer is the first theming element added to the building. Metal roofing has been applied to part of the roof.

The red concrete now stretches the full length of the construction site. In our last update, the new concrete was only under the structure.

The interior side of the building has been completely enclosed.

A retaining wall has been built toward the end of the structure.

Our best guess is that this structure is going to be a new security screening area for guests traveling to the Magic Kingdom from resorts on the new gold line ferry. The new gold line ferry dock is currently under construction. As for the enclosed portion at the end of the structure, were thinking this could be possible guest service windows.

Its exciting to see theming elements being added to this new structure. Were interested to see how it will change the appearance of Magic Kingdoms entrance. Keep checking WDWNT for updates on all of the construction happening around the Disney Parks.
