What’s New in Magic Kingdom: A RARE Guest and TRON Construction Update

There’s always something new to see at Disney World, which is why we go so often — so we can bring you the most up-to-date information on what’s happening in the parks, and the hotels too.


Today, we’re heading over to MagicKingdom to see what’s new in that park since we last visited!

First and foremost, we spotted the Easter bunnies this week hanging out in front of Cinderella Castle! These guys only come out around Easter time, so it was fun to get to see them!

The Easter Bunny!

Alright, now on to the rest of the updates from Magic Kingdom.

Magic Kingdom Construction Updates

The area outside of the Plaza Ice Cream Parlor is quiet surrounded by construction walls and green tarp. Disney hasn’t shared what’s going on in this area, but we’ll be sure to let you know when we get more information.

We also took a ride on the PeopleMover and checked on the TRON: Lightcycle Run construction. Disney hasn’t announced an exact date for this ride’s opening, but we have seen some testing recentlyso we know progress is being made!

Tron Construction

We also noticed that train tracks are down at the Walt Disney World Railroad station in Fantasyland, but we did not see any testing while we were there this time. Previously, these tracks had been removed as part of the refurbishments coming to this attraction.

We’re still waiting for Disney to announce a reopening date for the Walt Disney World Railroad, so be sure to stay tuned for the latest.
