We went to the Magic Kingdom on Sunday to see what’s new. I was surprised to see the Christmas decorations still up and hear Christmas music playing as we entered. A cast member said the decorations will be up until Jan. 15. I’m not sure why they’re leaving them up so long this year, but it was nice to see the castle all lit up.
There were many areas around the park behind constructions walls. The Tomorrowland Terrace was one of the places walled off. The fireworks dessert parties are not happening during this refurbishment. They’re supposed to return in early spring.
Some of the Muppets are appearing in a cavalcade before the afternoon parade. Click Here for more photos and a video.
The Crystal Palace restaurant is also closed for refurbishment. It’ll reopen on Feb. 15. Liberty Tree Tavern is a temporary character dining location while the Palace is closed. Liberty Tree will resume being a non-character location on Feb. 15.
