Magic Kingdom Photo Update Including Hub Progress and Tomorrowland Arcade Closure

Hi everyone!

We stopped by the Magic Kingdom yesterday for a few hours, it has been gorgeous the last few days for visiting the parks. The Mickey floral out front is in Mardi Gras colors, with a new fence to keep guests out of the grass.

Follow Mousesteps on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest for frequent park and resort updates!

Here is a video of the new fence and floral.

The Harmony Barber Shop will be undergoing a refurbishment from February 16th through the end of March. I was able to get  my hair cut without much wait, likely due to guests not realizing the original February 1st closing date was changed.

We even had some Streetmosphere while in the barber shop.

Here is our video of the Harmony Barber Shop, but it will be laid out differently when it opens at the end of March.

The hub refurbishment looks nearly done in the Crystal Palace area. It is interesting that the hub is what we seem to get the most questions about – more than the Sorcerer’s Hat, more than Disney’s Polynesian Resort.

Flowers and landscaping have been added.

This fountain in the middle reminds me of one at Disney’s Port Orleans French Quarter.

I like the different plant shapes.

Lighting fixtures.

Walt and Mickey are still covered.

Here is our video of the hub expansion!

The crane was still up.

The hub work near the Tomorrowland Terrace looks less finished.

I am always glad to still see the sea serpent.

The arcade at Space Mountain is closed. All other arcades on Walt Disney World property are having claw machines and prize redemption counters pulled, but apparently the Tomorrowland Arcade is gone for good.

Here are some Space Mountain shirts I haven’t seen before.

The Tomorrowland Arcade boarded up.

Under the Sea – Journey of the Little Mermaid is closed through the first week of March.

Gaston wanted to make sure this little girl received her birthday button.

What do you think of the hub refurbishment and other changes at the Magic Kingdom?
