PHOTOS: 5 Construction Updates You Missed This Week in Disney World

If you haven’t been to Disney World yet this year — what are you waiting for?!


There’s so much to see and do — but NEW experiences are right around the corner, too. Multiple construction projects are in the works, and we’ve been keeping up with them all. Let’s take a look at the biggest construction updates you might have missed this week!

Magic Kingdom

TRON: Lightcycle / Run

Now that we have an opening date for TRON, we’ve started to see more finishing touches taking place around the attraction.

It’s a crane!

Some large equipment has been moved in, and we’ve spotted more and more crews on the ground working in this area lately.

It looks like it’s go-time for this attraction — almost! TRON is opening on April 4th, 2023.

CommuniCore Hall & Plaza

WHOA — CommuniCore Hall is looking pretty massive from this angle. This new building will be the home of all things festivals in EPCOT.

Things are going up!

Most of the structural support appears to be built, and crews were working on the roof (or top of the structure anyway!) when we passed by on the monorail.

Journey of Water – Inspired by Moana

There must have been a sale on large equipment rentals, as some sort of big machinery has been moved into the Moana attraction area.

Construction everywhere

From what we can see, it looks like work is being done on the pathways inside the Moana attraction — but we’ll keep an eye on this spot for any more changes!

Hollywood Studios

Roundup Rodeo BBQ

Some exciting drawings have popped up on the outside of Roundup Rodeo BBQ!


Here’s a closer look — we can see Jessie, Wheezy, and Bo Peep from this view!

There’s no official opening date for Roundup Rodeo BBQ just yet, but as soon as we have an update we’ll let you know.

Disney Resort Hotels

BoardWalk Inn

Over at Disney’s BoardWalk Inn, there are quite a few renovations taking place! A new coffee shop just opened in the lobby, and the Cake Bake Shop is taking the place of the former ESPN Club. Right now, it looks like the Cake Bake Shop’s roof is being renovated. This new table service spot will be opening sometime in 2023!
