Liberty Square to Fantasyland walkway to be widened behind Cinderella Castle

Mar 04, 2019 in "Cinderella Castle"

Posted: Monday March 4, 2019 2:10pm ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

The walkway that links Liberty Square to Fantasyland behind Cinderella Castle is planned to be widened to improve guest flow through the area.

Shown in the image above by the orange line, the existing narrow walkway is easy blocked by a stroller or two.

By widening the walkway, it will provide a more convenient shortcut from the central hub area to Fantasyland. 

During the work, portions of the moat will be drained and refurbished.

Ah, that makes sense. Thanks!

Three guests walking side by side in one direction so only one could pass the other way with difficulty. Last week that was my experience, as you can't fix stupid.

Is the two or three Millennium Falcon strollers?

I would agree. Looking at old photos, it was previously about 8' wide. It appears to be 14'-15' now.

As others have guessed... projection

Trip hazard? Guests breaking branches off and beating people up with them? Squirrels?

Thanks! And thank you for the great pics. On top of things as they happen, as usual.

It's much wider. We used that path frequently and you could fit only 2 people across. I remember this because numerous times someone would be walking in the middle and did not want to move over to their side to let the person coming from the other direction by. I shoulder bumped a lot of people in that walkway. This was ground zero for rude people taking up the whole path. It looks like you can easily fit 4 across it now.

What time of day were the finished project pictures taken that are posted on the @wdwmagic home page article? MK looks dead and makes me want to be there!!
