Late last week, the Disney Parks Blog posted about a couple changes being made to Magic Kingdom in the near future. There were two things announced and it’s one of those something old and something new situations
First change is the something old; it is old news that “it’s a small world” is under refurbishment now until October 22nd. The announced changes include bringing back the old style of queue that the attraction had prior to the 2004-2005 refurbishment. The Imagineers have said that there are no plans during this refurbishment to put Disney characters in the attraction, as seen in other Disney parks.
The second change is happening at the beginning of September. To the right of the castle, there has always been this cute show called “Storytime with Belle”, where Belle comes out and tells her fairytale with some help from the young audience members. On September 12th, this feature will be closing to make way for a meet and greet area with Rapunzel and Flynn Ryder, the stars of the new Disney movie “Tangled”. The meet and greet will be opening on October 15th.
