More photos from One More Disney Day at the Magic Kingdom


Here’s a few more photos showing what the 24-hour Leap Day was like at the Magic Kingdom. The morning started with heavy fog, as seen in this view from 4:45 a.m. Feb 29, 2012.

The queue for the Ferryboat was lined with balloons. Balloons also decorated the Transportation and Ticket Center on 40th Anniversary of Walt Disney World, Oct 1, 2011.

Spiders added some Haunted Mansion theming to a monorail beam, their webs glistening with moisture from the heavy fog.

The entrance plaza was ablaze in television lighting.

Mickey Mouse waves to a fan in the crowd. He and Minnie were in their pajamas before they left and changed for the opening ceremony up in the train station.

About 21 hours later, on March 1, only these shirts remained. The cast member had instruction cards on where to go online to buy a shirt in your size. (Online offer expired March 1).

If you arrived early morning March 1, you had a very rare opportunity to board the resort line monorail from the center platform of the Transportation and Ticket Center station. The express line was not operating at that time. Guests disembarking the resort line train exited on the west side of the station, as normal. Normally, there’s an exchange of guests on the west side for the resort line.
