Photo Update of the New Bag Check Area at Disney’s Animal Kingdom

Disney’s Animal Kingdom is scheduled for phased reopening beginning July 11, right along with Magic Kingdom. While the Cinderella Castle undergoes its transformation before the grand reopening, Animal Kingdom construction is also still in the works. Thanks to @bioreconstruct on Twitter, we can see the new bag check area construction status.


Check out these four aerial photos of the new bag check area at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. It looks like they’re making great progress! With the first photo below @bioreconstruct shares: “Aerial view of the new bag check at Disney’s Animal Kingdom (Jun 12). Look close. The previous bag check has been removed, with concrete dust scattered at the former foundations.”

The second photo shows the new entrance plaza with the new tram stop on the left.

The last bag check photo @bioreconstruct adds a yellow arrow to point out where the previous bag check was removed.

And nothing to do with the bag check area, but we wanted to share this one because we simply can’t wait to ride this beauty soon enough!

Do you think the construction will be complete when the park reopens July 11? We simply can’t wait to be there to experience it!

About Mike and Jamie Sylvester

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 15 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
