Even though it looks really good I'm still having a hard time getting excited about this project. I hope the 7 Dwarfs coaster is s really unique one of a kind attraction attraction but is it's not I won't be surprised. The whole thing just seems kinda meh.

I for one am actually really excited about this project. When it comes to Disney Parks, and while there are many rides I love there, it's the atmosphere and detail that bring me back year after year. This new expansion is looking amazing, and I can't wait to see it finished and in person. Now I can only hope that when this expansion is over it means we might finally see a much needed renovation/expansion of Tomorrowland. In my opinion, it's the area of the park that needs it most.
^^I completely agree. It's not always the rides that bring me back there but the atmosphere of the park. Sure, the park having great one of a kind attractions is a great plus, but just all the detail put into these areas adds more to it. And no doubt will this New Fantasyland have a lot of amazing details as well. I'm right up there with you hoping Tomorrowland gets the much needed renovation as well. With that, hopefully Disney can put their attention to the other parks once again. (Avatarland, which I'm not that excited about.)

Continuing on my visit to Walt Disney World, we stopped by the Magic Kingdom...
Despite the rain earlier, it turned out to be a nice day at the Magic Kingdom.
It's become a habit of mine to stop by the Sunshine Tree Terrace...
To visit the original Orange Bird...
And of course, to have another awesome Citrus Swirl!
The Country Bear Jamboree is closing for a lengthy refurbishment that is rumored to do to the show what was done to the content of the original Enchanted Tiki Room. The show is rumored to be shortened with certain songs removed by the time it returns.
I made it a point to see the original show one last time...
It will be very interesting to see what form the show returns in later this year.
The Frontierland Hoedown is kindof like a coutnry flashmob with cast members and characters joining in to dance to the sounds of Frontierland.
It's a neat little side offering to enjoy.
Over in Liberty Square, the Yankee Trader building is behind major scrims (though is still open) to be reworked to be seen from all angles.
Throughout the park FastPass+ readers have been popping up at attraction entrances in preparation for the September test runs to resume soon.
Moving into Fantasyland...
A look at the other side of the Yankee Trader, as well as the construction site of the former Skyway building.
New structures near the old Skyway building have begun to spring up. Rumors are that this area will become host to a new set of restrooms as well as a Tangled-themed meet and greet.
FastPass+ readers have arrived at the entrance of Peter Pan.
With old planters removed, the space between the new Castle Walls and the rest of Fantasyland looks larger.
Details near completion on the castle walls as official soft openings for New Fantasyland are set to begin on November 19th.
The Seven Dwarfs Mine Train coaster has received additional framework while the original lift structure has received concrete coverings to enclose the lift.
The former home of Snow White's Scary Adventures continues to be stripped down to make way for the Princess Fairytale Hall set to debut later next year. Pieces from the former Snow White festival/fair facade are now stored backstage.
This steel framing sprung up out of nowhere over the past few days.
FastPass+ readers are also at the entrance of the FastPass line at The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh.
Under the Sea: Journey of the Little Mermaid is receiving a grassy top to give a more realistic feel to the facade of the new attraction.
I think it'll look great when it is finished!
The Casey Jr. Splash 'n' Soak Station remains popular with guests throughout the day.
The third, unannounced tent is rumored to be a quick service eatery themed to Humphrey the Bear.
I finally had a chance to check out the new play queue at Dumbo.
You enter thru the main queue where you are given a pager. From there you have free reign to enjoy the play queue until your pager goes off, where you then exit the play queue and re-enter the main queue seen to the left.
Plenty of line available inside to handle long waits.
Even the control system for the pagers is themed!
The play structures are designed for the children to enjoy while parents can sit back and relax, waiting for their pager to go off.
There's some great details here for fans of the film.
Pull the string...
Fireworks go off!
And to close, the old Swan Boats dock near Tomorrowland is behind scrims for refurbishment.
Change the scheme, Alter the mood! Electrify the boys and girls if you would be so kind!
