Nice to see the TTC getting desperately needed upgrades.Photo update as of Friday, March 29, 2019. I don't like to start a new thread, when an old one will do.
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.

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