Check out the changes at the Haunted Mansion in Magic Kingdom! Enjoy the new effects and say hi to the Hitch Hiking Ghosts for me please. Then see if you can find the Bride's ring outside Haunted Mansion.
Mickey's new area to greet guests is open and working very well on Main Street. Be sure to take a good look around the queue for special treats (not the edible kind)
Princesses are also in the Theater (formerly Expo Hall) but split apart from Mickey. When you enter the queue, you see all three Princesses!
Over the walls covering ToonTown, you can see that most of the buildings are completely gone now.
The Adventureland Entrance is open again. The new bridge is beautiful.
At Animal Kingdom you will find a larger than life character covered with tarps. Maybe they are just feeding the Yeti so he doesn't eat guests.
And for those who are hoping to enjoy a Grad Night at WDW in 2012, it will not happen. it is now confirmed that the last Grad Nights will be the ones in 2011.
