Today we’re taking a look at all the changes around the Magic Kingdom including updates to Tomorrowland. Instagram fans may already know that the infamous purple wall has had a minor makeover. Relax, there’s still a section of solid purple leftover, but now the left side of the wall transitions to white using a clean geometric design. In addition to some aesthetic changes, land is being cleared for the Tron Coaster and Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Cafe is still in the (very long) process of receiving outdoor seating. The first patio recently opened, but much of the restaurant is still covered in work walls.

Main Street USA is continuing to refurbish every facade one by one, Club 33 construction is heating up near the hub entrance to Adventureland, and minor work is being down in Fantasyland with Prince Charming Regal Carrousel behind work walls.
