Inside the Magic Kingdom renovations have been made by installing a brand new entrance to Tomorrowland. Also the pathway between Sleepy Hollow in Liberty Square and Mickey’s PhilharMagic in Fantasyland. During the preparations some rides have had to close for maintenance such as the Tomorrowland Transit Authority People Mover. The Riverboat in Liberty Square and Tom Sawyer Island is also closed.

During this unprecedented uncertainty the phased opening of DisneyWorld has been reasonably successful and there has been very little Covid-19 cases reported. Of course the experience in the parks is different but how refreshing that the Walt Disney Company is still planning the magic.
