A permit was recently filed that was titled "MK2-Tunnel". MK2 is Tron (MK1 was to be the Main Street Theater). I'm wondering if the tunnel is for the train and will have a new scene.
If what i heard is true, yes.
This would be amazing! Nice to see little additions that arn't necessary but add to the overall experience.
I agree, but I feel it’s these little experiences which Disneyland does a million times better than MK, so whilst this would be a start I’d hope for much more for the 50th. MK needs more magic injected as it feels like an unloved relative.
Not really but ok. When is the last time DL has as much investment that MK has had in the past 10 years.
I guess getting 25 years out of our brick is pretty good. Still sad to see them go though. I'd love to get the actual brick...
I hear people saying that, but imagine how much work it would be to dig up every brick without damaging. It would take impossibly long.
Even if it's possible, how many of the bricks are damaged as they sit in the ground now.
Each brick individually and then sorted or a digger bringing up 50 bricks every minute. The labour alone would cost more than simply replacing them.
Many of the bricks are quite weather worn at this point. Getting rid of them will save a bunch of money because right now crews are constantly fixing them as they pop up or sink in the walkways from weather and wear.
The only ones that actually still look pretty good are the ones with the important peoples names on them right in front of MK (Kalogridis, Eisner, etc). Here's Eisner's for example:
Roy E Disney's is looking a little rough though:
Those are also granite blocks around the Magic Kingdom logo, not just regular bricks. There are also a bunch like that by the wedding pavilion that seem to have been "special" blocks (most of which were purchased by Asian couples from the names on them). The red clay bricks are really worn out, especially over between the Poly and Grand where the wind blows sand across them.
Expect to finally see construction start at the TTC and the front of MK for the reimagined entrance plazas. They've postponed it so long now, it will be a bit of a shock to finally see them moving on these projects.
Good. The TTC is so dated it’s ridiculous. I really hope they add bag scanners like Universal has at security, too.
Not sure how finished it is, but I’m not that big a fan of the orange. Thought they were going more in the Blue/White/Grey direction.
Supposedly the relocation of the tram drop off begins tomorrow morning, with parking trams dropping off on the south side of Seven Seas underpass and all guests having to walk up the hill there into the security and ticket booth area so they can begin removing the old pavers and re configuring the TTC.
The orange and turquoise seems to be very retro. I was expecting something more "flat" (large blocks of bright colors) and minimalist
Lots of pastels in this redesign. If you can call it that - it’s not a very cohesive project.
