Magic Kingdom Construction Update 1/22/15


There are several projects taking place around the Magic Kingdom, including several “new to me” changes.

First and foremost, as we originally reported on Twitter, several fish have been re-painted with black light paint just before the Under the Sea scene in the Under the Sea: Journey of the Little Mermaid attraction. Unfortunately we were unable to take a decent photo of this change, but it adds credibility that the upcoming refurbishment will be to re-paint several parts of the attraction using black light paint, similar to what was done in Disney California Adventure.
