    Magic Kingdom Renew the Magic


    Main street

    Coming in from the monorail not much has changed from what you can see. After going through bag check and the gate some changes are visible like the shops on both sides right before going under the train station are Fastpass plus kiosks. Inside the train station you see many familiar posters along with some new ones.

    To the left is the town hall a guest services area in the park. On the right side is the Main Street theater showing One Man's Dream it was moved here after it closed in the park formerly known as Hollywood Studios.

    The Emporium is on the left side. But one thing has changed the widows out side the shop that show scenes from popular Disney animated movies. These widows would now feature scenes from classic Mickey Mouse cartoons like Plane Crazy and Steam Boat Willie.

    One the right side of the street a new path has been made for those you want to get by the crowds on Main Street. The path would also be covered and would be a lot like one of Disneyland Paris's arcades.

    The rest of Main Street should be very familiar because non of it has changed at all.
    The hub will also be staying the same because it just finished it's last expansion.

    Adventureland

    Coming over the bridge into adventure land you see the Jungle Navigation Company Skipper Canteen a restaurant with unique exotic food if you want to try something new or some stuff closer to the food we are used to at home. Right next to the Skipper Canteen is the infamous Dole Whip it's in a brand new expanded location close to the original spot. It also features covered seating where meet and greets were once held. One the other side is the Swiss Robinson family treehouse. While making it through the changes with only a refresh with new paint and a trimming of the trees that block views from the treehouse.

    Entering the main square area you see that the magic carpets are gone and along with the all the Arabian theming in the area. The magic carpets are replaced by a small jungle area with some water in it.

    The jungle cruise is refurbished to include new effects like the ones from Disneyland and it would also include some new jokes. But because I am a terrible joke writer you can come up with them! A few other changes include the frogs in the rain forest being brought back along with a gorilla punching an alligator one of the new designs Mark Davis made for the new Disney world version. One last thing I would do in the jungle cruise is refurbish some of the older audio animatronics that break very often add maybe even replace them if you had to.



    moving on to Pirates of the Caribbean I prioritize what would be the most important aspects to fix. The first one is the boats. Having been on the ride many times since they changed it I can say that they suck. Not only do you get wet but getting in the boat is hard because of how slippery they are. The second aspect were things that were removed back in the 2006 refurbishment like the talking skull and the barker parrot. Another aspect was limiting the movie characters like Black Beard and Barbosa because I think the movies are on their way out if the 5th one isn't good then most people probably won't care to see the next one. The most unrealistic is the need to expand the ride. Right now it just feels short compared to it's sisters around the world.

    The barker Parrot would now greet guests once again from the top of the mass in front of the attraction. Just like he did when the original version of the ride he will sing along with the music and warn people of the adventure a head. The Fastpass line would be removed in the later part of the queue and only bypass the out door section. Moving towards the loading area we see some one new right bellow the cast member control booth that we can see while in line as well as on the ride. Once down about to get on our boats we see that they look more like the boats found in the Disneyland version of the attraction. Right before leaving on our adventure the talking skull and crossbones tells us to remain seated in the boat with hand arm feet and legs in side the boat and that no flash pictures are allowed.

    Entering the cavern we would usually see Davy Jones or Blackbeard projected on the mist now still using the same effect it now shows a skeleton turn into a living pirate then disappear. We the cove on past the area the mermaids used to then past the beach with the skeletons on it. Passing the skeleton steering the ship. We slip down a drop into a battle.

    On one side like it has always been is the wicked wench. The captain of the ship is no longer Barbosa but the same red coated captian in the original attraction. On the opposite side is the fort shooting at the ship on the other side. Moving to where the mayor is being drowned one thing different about the scene is the lack of jack sparrow. Not only are they not saying his name his audio animatronic is gone. The auction scene will remain unchanged.
    In the next area the fat guy is still sitting on a barrel but this time he is asking about the girl with the hanker chief. But behind him jack sparrow is sword fight with a different pirate. Using the technology from Disneyland Paris. The scene after that with fire burning down buildings would be kept the same.
    In the jail scene we can see the usual dog and pirate in the cell but now around them are dead our "sleeping" guards.this would bring something new to the area for hardcore fans of the ride. The final treasure room scene would feature many pirates instead of just Jack. Some of the pirates would be engaged in a pistol fight across the room over the treasure. You would then exit the boat and go up the ramp into the shop.

    Thanks for reading. You can comment suggests critiques.

    That's not what I mean. The original could be brought back, and using Guardians of the Galaxy as a way to bring both the classic back, and putting Marvel in WDW.

    FrontierLand


    After going under the arch that separates Caribbean plaza from Frontierland. To your right used to be peco's bill tall tale inn restaurant. Even though the restaurant recently had a refurbishment and a menu change I would like to change it again. The new restaurant would be themed to the country bears and be renamed Max Melvin's and Buff's. Just inside the restaurant the group is there putting on their own show. The menu will change once more to bring back the hot cheese along with some of the other old things on the menu. Continuing down the path to Liberty Square the next place we reach is a small candy store. Then right next door is the legendary Grizzly Hall.
    image.jpeg
    The show will stay through the changes but not without some improvements. The first is a new plaque right underneath the sign with the new official name: Marc Davis's Country Bear Jamboree. The show would be restored to the original length. I would also bring back the holiday versions of the show. Across the path is a pin trading outpost and big al's a small gift shop. image.jpeg

    Back down the path is Splash Mountain. Only a few new effects would be added to this already great ride attraction. The area over the second drop into the laughing place that is not themed would be covered up by rock work. The second would be at the top of the main lift hill it would use the technology that is used in the Pirates of the Caribbean mist screens. It would show Brer Rabbit being thrown into the briar patch and Brer bear and Brer fox falling into it to the briar patch. You would then go down the drop into the briar patch.
    image.jpeg
    The train station next to splash mountain would close and be relocated to a new section of Frontierland. The track would still go through that spot just not stop there.

    Big thunder mountain railroad would also receive some new effects and additions. The first would be the great new ending from Disneyland. A picture would be taken there to be bought at a new gift stand at the end of the ride. New western rock work would be around the area to help with the theming of the area. image.jpeg

    Part 2 coming soon, probably tomorrow. Some things to look forward for are 2 brand new rides coming to Frontierland.

    Map of Expansion image.jpeg image.jpeg
    The first new attraction is the Western River Cruise. It utilizes the new ride system from Pirates of the Caribbean Battle for the Sunken Treasure. The entrance is at a flooded mining camp. We weave through the queue that looks a lot like a flooded version of big thunder mountain's line. Just like every other attraction The Western River Cruise has Fastpass. Reaching the boarding area the to lines merge and you board a boat that looks very patched together. It obviously isn't but it is nice theming.

    The ride begins and the boat goes straight into a flooded mine shaft. There is a slow transition into the darkness. You come out of the darkness into a cavern. Some of the rocks seem to look like cow boys. Other rock formations look like horses, buffalo and native Americans. Are boat turn to face them. We then see a flash of light and all the rock formations listed above come to life a full animatronic figures.

    After hooting and howling are boat goes down a small hill backwards. Into a bright room with cow boys herding so cattle. In the background we see a small town and plenty of rocks in the distance. Also in the distance we see an always moving line of cattle and cow boys on horses ride along with them. This is all seen on a screen behind the main scene.

    We move to the next scene by going under a natural rock arch. The next scene shows a stage coach being robbed. Unlike the last scene our boat turns to the scene. The people on the stage couch yell at us for help. But the bandits point their guns at us and tell us we saw nothing.

    We turn forward and continue under another rock arch into a small frontier town. The first building we see is the Saloon. Inside a bar fight is going on which we cane see through the windows. We then see the sheriffs outpost were to prisoners in stocks are talking to each other. The final building we see in the town is the bank. Through the front doors we can see the sheriff in a gun fight with a criminal robbing the bank.

    We then go around a steep rock tower into the last room. We see an Native American camp using both screens and audio animatronics we can see them doing a rain dance. We the start up a lift hill as the scene continues. Once we are near the top it starts to rain and we go down a 20 ft. Drop. We then round a corner and return to the boarding area.

    Exiting you go back onto a main path and continue down across a bridge and keep going father into frontierland. The next thing you come across is the new and improved Frontierland station this new station would sit on the ground and look a lot like the one from Disneyland Paris.

    Continuing on we find a small cottage. This cottage is home to camp out Rob's. It would sell conskin caps cowboy hats and small snacks to keep you going. Moving on we can hear the sound of thundering water as we reach hot spring refreshments. Hot spring refreshments is a small drink an food stand. The last building we pass is lock up lockers. This is were you can store your items before going on the wettest ride in the wilderness, Lewis and Clark Rafting Expedition.
    image.jpeg
    Lewis and Clark Rafting Expedition is a white water rafting ride a lot like the one originally planned for Disney's America. The length of the ride would be similar to grizzly river run. The highlights of this ride are 3 major drops and audio animatronics of Lewis, Clark and Sakajawa.

    After riding you continue down the main road to our last stop a small Native American village. Located here are the docks to mike fink kneel boats and Pocahontas tribal canoes. Also here are meet in greets with John Smith and Pocahontas.

    That finishes Frontierland Liberty square should be coming as soon as possible. While we wait any critiques, questions or comments.

    Liberty Square

    The patriotic land of the free Liberty Square is the Magic Kingdoms smallest land but it is not to be missed Liberty Square is now the home of two of the more frightening attractions.


    The Sleepy Hollow restaurant will be renamed and received minor changes. The New name will be Benjamin’s Beef and Beer and Berry Pies. Themed after the famous Benjamin Franklin the restaurant would be decorated with kites and news articles he pressed out.
    liberty-square-disney-world[1].jpg
    The Hall of Presidents will remain as it has for a long time updating every 4 or 8 years to put in the new president of the United States Of America. All new presidents will give a short speech and be signed into the hall of presidents.

    A new restaurant call Presidential Plaza located across from The Hall Of Presidents bring a new type of high class sit down restaurant for the Magic Kingdom. Themed to the greatest presidents of the USA the restaurant serves high class American food.

    The Liberty Belle will still journey around Tom Sawyers Island but with the expansion of Frontierland a lot of it's scenes had to be relocated or replaced.
    Disney_Copyright_Haunted_Mansion[1].jpg
    The Haunted Mansion the classic Omni Mover ride continues to entertain and frighten guests with some small Improvements like the addition of the hatbox ghost. The new expansion unfortunately meant that the interactive queue had to be removed. Also fast pass plus is not available for this or any other Omni Mover attractions. The only other change is that the mansion is kept in near perfect condition due to it being one of the Magic Kingdoms last classic opening day rides.

    Escape from Sleepy Hollow

    Modern dark ride

    Location: Liberty Square

    Ride System: Trackless

    Opening date: May 12 2026

    Capacity: 9 per vehicle around 2,400 people an hour.

    Budget: 240 million dollars

    Exterior
    The exterior of this attraction is them to an early American church. Complete with a grave yard to go along with the haunted mansion next door and a bell tower.

    Queue
    The queue has an add on area behind the grave yard but a normal hour queue passes the grave yard and procedures into the church. Inside it weaves around the bell tower and leaves the area through a door and then enters a room themed to look like a small town at night. Throughout the queue the headless Horseman is setup. In the window of one building we can see and here Brom Bones telling the town about the headless horseman. Also down the road is a wooden bridge. We enter a stable looking building and prepare to hunt the horseman.

    Warning Sign/Over head spiel
    Welcome to sleepy hollow. This ride contains sharp turn darkness and 360* turns. This experience is not recommended for young or easily frightened children. People experiencing back pain should not ride and pregnant women may not ride. Keep your hands arms feet and legs inside the pumpkin carriage and remain seated at all times.

    Boarding
    Guests grab their 3D glasses and prepare to board. On the vehicle guest are told to pull down on lap bar and secure loose items. Cast members are expected to load two groups of three at a time after loading the vehicles much like the rat mobiles in the ratatouille ride procedure to a short safety check to ensure the lap bars a locked in place. Afterwards the ride begins.

    Ride
    The ride begins with the vehicles organized in a straight line going over the rickety old wooden bridge and into a black light lit forest. The vehicles smoothly move around trees and other interferences. The carriages regroup and look out into the forest when galloping can be heard behind us. The vehicles sharply turn around 180* just in time to see the Headless Horse man swinging his sword right over their heads with this comes a bit of wind to sell the effect. Vehicles pull away spinning 90* and speed up for a wild ride through the forest. Dodging trees at around 20 miles per hour the galloping of the headless horseman can still be heard. Your vehicle slows done as the headless horseman pulls in right besides it (screen)before he gets the lead and jumps out at the carriage. (animatronic).
    disneys-headless-horseman[1].jpg
    The old wooden bridge can be seen in the distance the vehicles all find each other in a clearing in the forest. The headless horseman jumps out in front of the vehicles and throws his famous flaming pumpkin. It barley missed our head as it hits a tree behind us. The vehicles speed away going backwards the horseman disappears back into the dark forest. Rotating around the vehicles move slowly looking for where he’ll come out next.
    sleepy-hollow-99[1].png

    The pumpkin carriages continue in a V formation. Heading out of the forest dodging trees very reminiscent of classic dark ride attractions. The galloping resumes as the vehicles form a circle pointed out. The horseman runs laps around the circle laughing will doing so he stops and starts swing his sword at all the vehicles.

    The vehicles escape and drive backwards as the horseman in the flesh continues his chase. Flaming pumpkin in hand the horseman could end us. The vehicles make a sharp turn and reach the wooden bridge as we are about to escape he throws his pumpkin and in explodes over our heads making all guests a little wet. The vehicles turn around and glide into the unload bay ending the frightening ride.

    Gift Shop

    The ride exits into Ichabod Items a small gift shop letting guests celebrate surviving the intense ride.

    I have a question for those who follow this. Would you rather have a Cinderella or Sleeping Beauty attraction in the space that is currently Princess fairytale hall?

    I was leaning that way to it just seems to have more element that could make it a better ride.

    Fantasy Land
    The land of fantasy and a place where all people can meet their favorite Disney heroes.

    Entering from the Liberty Square side we come very close to the Tangled bathrooms. You decide to go in only to find a restaurant. The Snuggly Duckling is the newest fantasy land restaurant and is the perfect experience for any Tangled fan. It serves English Pub food.
    Snuggly_Duckling_Featured[1].jpg
    Next door is It's A Small World. With a brand new refurb the exterior looks completely different with the smiling face on the out side the look from the inside is shown on the outside. The boarding area stays mostly the same. It is kept indoors and will look a lot like Hong Kong’s It’s A Small World hoarding area. The ride its self would get new paint and be restored to look just like it was opening day. iasw1[1].jpg

    Across the street is Peter Pan’s Flight. The ride has went through a major refurb inside and out. The inside would get an major update including new projections animatronics and effects. First new animatronics would be added to show the darlings flight in their room with Peter and tinker bell. Their shadows are projected onto the roofs and ground in the next scene. New effects would be used for the flyover of London and a new moon. The next scene losses the cheap tin foil volcanoes for mist coming out the top. All the figures in the room would be updated and the room would get repainted. Tiger Lily is added at the bottom of Skull Rock. The biggest change on the ship is an actual duel between Peter and hook. Brand new animatronics would be used and they would work quite a bit like the sword fighting pirates at Disneyland Paris. Finally new effects are used at the end for the pixie dust scene and all the animatronics from this point are brand new ones. pp[1].jpg

    Even though all that is done that's not even the biggest change coming to Peter Pan’s Flight. Using the space of the outdated Philharmagic Peter Pan’s flight will get a brand new identical track that's only difference is that the cars on it have 2 rows. The addition will nearly triple capacity of the ride and should in theory make the line shorter and move along quicker. IMG_1520 (1).JPG

    The next attraction is the Cinderella Carriage Carousel. A repaint and rename of the opening day Magic Kingdom carousel.

    Where the Princess Fairytale Hall once stood is now A Gigantic Journey a dark ride based around the new Disney animated film Gigantic. Not enough is known about the movie right now to have a more detailed description but the exterior will be covered in over grown bean stalks. The new ride will exit into Sir Mickey’s.
    Gigantic-Concept-Art-disney-38773981-1023-662[1].jpg
    The Many Adventures Of Winnie the Pooh will remain the same all except the gift shop will be themed to Pooh corner in England.

    The New Fantasyland expansion is good and will remain close enough to it’s original state to go into.
    thH4A7AIXI.jpg
    Next door is The Mad Tea Party. It will be repainted and get a new glass roof. The Cheshire café will receive new seating around the area and an expanded menu. The biggest addition here is the queen of hearts castle in the distance behind a hedge maze. Inside the castle is Alice's Crazy Curious Adventure. The queue starts with you winding through a hedge maze then entering a garden area were more queue is located. When finally reaching the castle the boarding area is right there in front of you. The new log flume ride will allow guest to explore and experience the wonder of wonderland along with Alice. Complete with a 25 foot drop the thrill would not be something a young child could not handle. tumblr_maanqsMYIZ1r1ogfco5_1280[1].jpg

    The story book circus sub land is not without its many problems. The 2 attractions currently found there are a B and C ticket. The land is aimed at young children so why not put a show in there and new circus tent you replace the rest area in the back of the land. Inside Mickey Minnie Donald Goofy and Dumbo will put on a circus that couldn't be found anywhere else. mickey circus poster[1].jpg

    Last thing I want to touch on is the meet and greets and where each character can be found.

    Mickey At Pete’s Often
    Minnie Same Same
    Goofy Same Same
    Pluto Same Same
    Donald Same Same
    Daisy Same Same
    Cinderella Near Carousel Often
    Snow White Near Mine Train Exit Less frequently
    Winnie the Pooh In meet and greet spot Frequent
    Tiger meet and greet spot Frequent
    Ariel Grotto Often
    Gaston Near tavern Less frequent
    Peter Pan Near Peter Pan’s Flight Frequent
    Wendy Darling Same Rare
    Captain Hook Same Rare
    Smee Same Rare
    Repunzel Near Restaurant Frequent
    Flynn Rider Same Rare
    Alice Near teacups Frequent
    Mad Hatter Same Rare
    Aurora Pinocchio’s village hous Less frequent


    The new E-ticket ride coming to fantasyland is not to be missed. Bald Mountain is the newest coaster addition to the Magic Kingdom. It is also the tallest building on property standing at 199.99 feet.( .04 taller than Everest). The main purpose of the ride is to attract the teen and adult audience. This is also the purpose of Escape from Sleepy Hollow and one other not yet talked about attraction.

    Located outside the berm and past the train tracks the only 2 paths to the ride are access from the old smoking area path to Tommorowland. There's lots of warning signs to tell parents not to take young children on this ride. The 54 inch height requirement should help with that problem though. The entrance is located in a small village complete with a mini train station and clock tower. The queue sets up the tale as we are shown drawings of the devilish figure locals call Chernabog. The black train cars are to take us through the mountain to avoid a month long hike to the other side where there's apparently a city located.
    gf_disney-villains_chernabog[1].jpg
    A few small hills and banks warm up guest before going on the second lift hill that takes them inside the mountain. Music is re written to match the hills loops and sharp turns of the ride. The main melody would remain mostly unchanged. The ride would use both screens and 2 life size Chernabog animatronics. With one corkscrew and a top speed of 93 miles per hour this will truly be the ride of your life.

    Also in the village is a small trail out to the mountains. The trail leads us to a dark cave. Inside is Maleficent as a dragon sleeping but occasionally wakes up and looks around.
    4985670340_c474dc493b_b[1].jpg
    The next post will go in depth with what the future holds in store for Tomorrowland. It might be a while because most of Tommorowland needs to go. But great news is I will not be keeping Stitch, Monsters Inc and Buzz.
