Yesterday we shared some of the first images of the newly reshaped Central Plaza area (the space between the end of Main Street, U.S.A. and Cinderella Castle) at Magic Kingdom Park.
The unveiling is the first milestone in a multi-phase project that will include sculpted gardens, new pathways, and more in this area. Be sure to check out the gallery of images above. How lovely is this area turning out to be? I can’t wait to visit again and take photos of the charming new fountains!
Last year, we showed you a preview of the work that we’re doing to make one of our guests’ favorite areas at Magic Kingdom Park even better. Today we’re happy to share that several new sections of the Central Plaza area between Main Street U.S.A. and Cinderella Castle are now open.
This marks the first milestone in our multi-phase project that will add in sculpted gardens, new pathways, and expanded restaurant seating. And beginning February 27, the FastPass+ viewing location will relocate from the the Rose Garden Fireworks Viewing Area to the Main Street Plaza Gardens (an area adjacent to The Crystal Palace).

Were you one of the thousands who participated in Leave a Legacy at Epcot and got you or your family’s photo placed on a tile here? The area sure looks beautiful at night.
One of my favorite ride vehicles is the Doombuggy at The Haunted Mansion. I simply love that the “Ghost Host” kindly lowers the bar for you as you begin your tour.
Have you noticed this new sign at the attraction’s entrance? It details how many individuals fit inside on Doombuggy. But what is the missing word here? You tell us. We’ll update the post with the correct answer later today!

Did you know that exactly 87 royal steeds make up Prince Charming Regal Carrousel at Magic Kingdom Park and each one of them is completely unique?
The horses, which were originally crafted in 1917 for Detroit Palace Garden Park, each sport looks all their own, dressed up in a myriad of colorful saddles, bridles, breast plates, armor and other festive gear. Is it me, or does the early morning sunshine cast just a touch more of a “fantasy” look to this classic attraction?
Finding Nemo – or at least a very close lookalike – is pretty easy at The Seas with Nemo & Friends Pavilion at Epcot.

Earlier this week we shared a desktop/mobile wallpaper from Disney artist Mike Britton, which depicts Cinderella on her way to the ball. Now we have another one to share with you, from Disney artist Ty Amato, that shows Cinderella in the moments just before midnight.
Country Bear Jamboree at Magic Kingdom Park stars a cast of more than 20 forest friends, including a moose, a racoon, a stag and a bevy of bears. Immortalized just above the main stage is a plaque of Ursus H. Bear (who isn’t a character in the current cast of the show).
The word underneath his image seems to indicate the role he played in the Country Bear Jamboree – but it’s blurred out here. What is it? Tell us in the comments section below. We’ll update the post later today with the answer.
