Across the pathway, construction walls surround the recently opened Thirsty River Bar kiosk.

However, both sides are still open, accessed through this passage between the construction walls.

Behind the construction wall, landscaping and pavement are being changed.

This globe light has a different "globe." Facing the "show" side is a honeycombed opening.

I know that there has been a lot to complain about lately with Disney increasing prices on everything, but this looks tremendous. Thanks for these photos (and a break from the madness) @WDWtraveler.

Wow. Literally blown away by the detailing. I cannot wait for this show!! This area looks stunningly beautiful. I wasn't sure if I was OK with the Expedition Everest sight line changing, but all this does is enhance the overall atomsphere. My breath is already taken away, I can't imagine how amazing this show is going to be. Animal Kingdom :inlove::inlove::inlove:

Great photos!

I wonder if they are adding seating near the Thirsty River bar?

Also I like that they are still doing work to theme the theatre infrastructure such as the globe lights. The show buildings look stunning.
