I just spent my first full day at magic kingdom yesterday (Monday). All I have to say is HOLY CRAP is this place cool. It's a little crowded, but fast pass makes it a lot better . We're going back to Magic Kingdom today because we couldn't possibly hit it all on one day. The one thing that really blew my mind was the extent of the transportation system. I parked, went through the ticket area and expected to enter an amusement park. Nope. A freaking railway station! Disney wins the award for both most ridiculous and most awesome way to enter a theme park!
You know after watching the parade video. I must say, I am not big on parades but I do remember always enjoying SpectroMagic. I wish it was still around. Don't get me wrong, Main Street Electrical parade is great and I understand its a classic. But there was just something about Spectro that Main Street doesn't have. Of course, this could of just been because it was my first parade to see at the WDW resort.

I'm sorry in advance if this has been previously discussed elsewhere!
I was there this week and asked several employees and they all said its just the new look they're going with. Cranes and sky jacks were up from 12am to 12pm everyday as they were replacing tiles and painting on the silver. This is another reason for having the moat drained, the cranes were sitting in it. I would say the silver look was chosen to enhance the "Celebrate the Magic" projection as well. As we were leaving Friday we noticed that the Dream Builders fences have been put up around all the grassy areas on the half of the central plaza closest to Main Street so we'll see work begin on that very soon. Not very pleasing to the eye at the moment but It'll be a welcome enhancement to crowd control when it's finished.
