Lately, we have seen many changes coming to the Disney Parks, with many refurbishments beginning within individual theme park lands.
At Walt Disney World, the 50th anniversary celebration has been slowly transforming Fantasyland into an EARidesent wonderland. We have even seen sections of Frontierland undergo a refurbishment. Although Disneyland is not celebrating such a large milestone this year, refurbishments around Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park are still needed from time to time.
Today, we can see that New Orleans Square is currently undergoing a refurbishment at Disneyland Park. The refurbishment did not begin today; however, we can see from the photos below that the construction in the area is currently ongoing.
Although the construction walls are up and tarp is being used to cover the ongoing construction on the building facades, no store operations are affected, as entrances are still available for Guests to use.
There is also signage on the construction walls to let Guests know that the stores are still open. The signage is helping to guide Guests to the entryway locations.
It is also fun to see how the tarp is themed to New Orleans with the images and posters that have been hung.
In the above photo, you can also see how each store entrance has been accommodated through the construction.
Because of the ongoing refurbishment, the construction walls are also taking up some of the walkways in New Orleans Square, which may cause some extra crowding at times, though this is an area that has some of the more narrow walkways in the Park. Lately, however, crowd levels have been very manageable, and this morning crowds are very low.
We currently do not know exactly when the refurbishment will end. However, it is fantastic to see that the construction is not affecting the day-to-day operations of New Orleans Square or causing any new closures in this area of Disneyland Park at Disneyland Resort.
What other areas of Disneyland or other Disney Parks would you like to see some touch-ups occur? Let us know in the comments below.
