Updated Aerial Imagery of Walt Disney World (Sept. 2016)

As we already reported previously, the NearMap site was updated  earlier today to show a more current aerial view of Orlando (images are from September 19).
Thanks to this update, we are able to get an up-close look at some of the areas that are currently under construction around Central Florida’s theme parks. In this update we’ll check out all of the areas around the Walt Disney World Resort that are under construction. Let’s take a look around and see what’s new.
NOTE: Clicking on any of the following photos will direct you to the actual map of the location.
MAGIC KINGDOM
Nothing new can be currently seen around the Magic Kingdom Park:
