Subject: Ticket and Transportation Center ferryboat dock waiting area.

The large trees that used to shade the waiting area for the Magic Kingdom ferryboat at the Ticket and Transportation Center have been removed. A new steel structure is being built over the west dock area as shade for the expanded waiting area. As many of you will recall, the original shaded waiting area was too small for large crowds and many guests had to wait "up the ramp" in the hot sun. I expect another steel structure to be built for shade over the east dock area when this one is completed.

Nice to see the TTC getting desperately needed upgrades.


Did the 2nd dock ever have a shade structure to begin with, cant really see one in aerial views?

Good thing they're building a second landing. When the monorails are down, the Ferry Boats get insane. It's always good to increase capacity.

It sucks that we all just accept this as standard operating procedure now.

At one time you wouldn't think, "...when the monorail is down..," because: 99.8% uptime.

Now, it's just accepted, "When the monorail is down..."

I'd say that they'd need a new ferry dock either way, though, with increased crowds and the 50th coming up.

I’ve found the monorail to be much more reliable during recent visits. Largely only down due to weather (as always).
