Water Leak at MK Main Entrance

As we left the Magic Kingdom at 9pm on Saturday night (6/9), we saw a major re-routing of traffic. One half the plaza was roped off, and it was hard to get to the Express monorail if you exited on the wrong side of the turnstiles.

After watching for a few seconds, we realized that there must have been a water leak. We could see it dribbling down the sloped esplanade and through the closed bag check (on the East side only). Lots of CMs and managers were keeping people away. The water appeared to "bubble up" from the concrete, which was a weird way for a leak to occur. I can't think of plumbing there normally, though maybe there is an underground hookup for hoses at this location?

Here's hoping they fixed it before this morning!
