Scaffolding Completely Takes Over Beast’s Castle in Magic Kingdom

Construction continues on Beast’s Castle in Magic Kingdom as scaffolding completely takes over.

Back in June, we reported on a permit filed which was for “general construction” for the area that is home to Be Our Guest, Gaston’s Tavern, and the restrooms nearby.

We speculated that the permit could have been filed so that the theme park could transform this area to commemorate 50 years of magic at Walt Disney World. Though Disney has not announced exactly what will happen with Beast’s Castle or Be Our Guest, we are seeing the construction continue on Beast’s Castle as scaffolding now takes over the restaurant icon.

In July, we reported on the construction work beginning on Beast’s Castle as scaffolding appeared next to the castle. Now, as Imagineers continue their work, we are seeing the scaffolding completely take over Beast’s Castle.

Bioreconstruct took to Twitter to share a photo of the scaffolding along with the caption:

Current work refurbishing the Beast’s Castle.

This is just another construction project happening in Magic Kingdom as we have already seen the theme park spruce up other areas of the park, including the Tangled-themed restrooms, parts of Fantasyland including Prince Charming Regal Carrousel, and Casey Jr.’s Soak ‘n’ Splash.
