Now how about we break this all down, today we were given the behind the scenes look at the ongoing construction projects across the parks something we have not heard much about since the start of COVID, we were given an update back in September, about which projects were moving forward and which ones were being put on hold. The progression of these current projects is proving to be quite successful. Although many of the paths to early construction completion or even completing on time have been put on hold due to this difficult year, the coronavirus pandemic has put many things on hold however these projects are moving along quite nicely.

Other updates include Guardians of the Galaxy Cosmic Rewind was updated with no current opening date for the coster. However, the photos that have been provided showcase that this will be an extremely thrilling experience for all. The final update was on Disneyland’s own Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway with first look images. We are sure more information will be continuing over the next few weeks or even months as the new years start.
