Well my weekend was much busier than anticipated so I wasn’t able to spend as much time at MK as planned. However, thanks to some super awesome twitter followers @virgoladylisa and @cybermousey they tweeted some pics of construction walls in Fantasyland that could possibly be for new portals. So I went out this morning to take a look and see what I could gather. The two areas in question are behind the Carousel and next to Pinocchio’s Village Haus.
After seeing this first hand today, I can’t see this being for a new portal. Plain and simple it just wouldn’t make any sense. As much as I don’t want to rule anything out I’m going to take a flyer here and say this is not for a new portal. I highly doubt and really hope it’s not SOTMK related. With all the negative comments about how intrusive some of the portals are, putting one here would definitely ruffle some feathers.
Now this construction wall by PVH seems feasible, but not another restaurant? In my opinion Tortuga is a disaster zone during lunch time. There’s nothing more intrusive than crowds of people at a portal while others are trying to eat. I really hope that WDI would stay away from constructing another portal at a dining location. As much as new portals are needed to help the congestion in Fantasyland placing another one in a dining location is not the answer. I’d rather wait for portals to be added in the Fantasyland expansion, than be in way of people who are trying to take a break and enjoy a meal.
Remember people this is all speculation and I wasn’t able to get an answer out of anyone so take it in stride. This might not even be SOTMK related at all, I have heard that there are going to be some sort of kiosks for the xpass/fastpass+ system so maybe these construction walls have something to do with that. If I hear or see anything else, I’ll be sure to let you all know.
