Photo Report of Magic Kingdom with Splash Mountain Refurb and Last Look at Main Street Bakery

Here are 77 photos of our visit to Magic Kingdom today, January 11th 2013. Splash Mountain closed last week for a 3-month refurbishment and we’re taking a last look at the Main Street Bakery, which closes in a couple of days to be refurbished as a Starbucks location.

We found this drawing of Daisy at the Transportation and Ticket Center, commemorating her 76th birthday two days ago. She first appeared on 9 January 1937 in the animated short Don Donald. It actually says: “belated” between “Happy Birthday”.

The construction of the new Grand Floridian DVC is getting along with the main structure in place. It is scheduled for a Fall 2013 opening.

Let’s have a look at the refurbishment of Splash Mountain. All the water has been drained out of the attraction and scaffolding has appeared along the drop. Workers can be seen painting and fixing some of the concrete on the outside. If only we could peek inside.
