Disney World is always updating its attractions, lands, theme parks, and Resort hotels to ensure that Guests can experience a certain standard of magic and perfection when visiting. Other structures need updating, which may not make a huge cosmetic difference, however, its function is integral to the theme park experience.
The Ticket and Transportation Center (TTC) is where Guests go to either board the Monorail or ferry to get to Magic Kingdom or EPCOT (though EPCOT Monorail transportation is currently unavailable). Since this is the only way off property Guests can get to the Magic Kingdom, it is a bustling location on Disney World property and can take up a lot of your time depending on when you are traveling in or out of the park.
Now, it seems that Disney is gearing up to get some construction done at the Ticket and Transportation Center as they have filed two construction permits. Both permits are for “General Construction” and will be contracted to Precision Contracting Services Inc. Although we do not know what construction the TTC will undergo, from the permits, it seems that both the ferry dock and the monorail station will both be undergoing some sort of construction.
It will be interesting to see if the changes are purely structural or if there will be a cosmetic addition to the area as Disney World Resort prepares for the 50th anniversary celebrations. Certain areas of the Ticket and Transportation Center have already begun converting some of its original purple colors to the royal color scheme we have seen take over Cinderella Castle, the entrance signs, as well at the Magic Kingdom Toll Plaza where Guests enter.
We are not sure how decorated the TTC will end up, but perhaps the changes that are being permitted could have something to do with theming. That being said, all of that is speculation at this point.
So far, we have not heard of this construction causing any closure for the Resort Monorail, the Express Monorail, or the ferry, which is great news to anyone planning on visiting the theme park shortly.
