Main Street U.S.A. train station scrim removal - August 4 2021
Posted: Wednesday August 4, 2021 9:00am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

The Main Street U.S.A. train station at the main entrance to the Magic Kingdom is beginning to emerge from behind its refurbishment scrims.


Scrims have been in place for several months as the exterior of the building is being refurbished ahead of the park's 50th anniversary, beginning October 1.

The side facing the park is still mostly behind scrims.

My sources tell me that they're instead working on a floral advertising a Disney+ and Genie+ bundle. They're calling it DisneyGenie++. You heard it here first.

Will the train station and its lawn get the usual Halloween decor, or will there be something different for the 50th?

While they’re waiting, all the curtains in the upper level of Canada need replaced lol

An Another year

I understand, but it's the kind of thing that would have gotten someone a big 'ol talking to, at minimum, if it happened 15 or more years ago. Show standards have gone down hill in recent years, and based on my experience working there for many years, it wouldn't fly until recently. Same with the interspersed burnt out "popcorn" lights on every Main Street building and the Grand Floridian.

When do you think Tron will be done? Personally I don't think Tron is going to be a ride for me I just really care about when the train will be running again. Do you have any insight as to when the train will be running again. Keeping my fingers crossed for good news. ;)πŸ€žπŸŽ‡βœ¨

Likely since the scaffolding was just removed the interior may still have some active construction and the Magic Kingdom decorating team has not yet been allowed access to reinstall curtains.

I was there the other day and it looks Like the upper windows were missing something. You could see right into the rafters. We’re there curtains before?
