Photo Finds - Lion King Wing, Epcot construction

Photo Finds from 8/20:

Work continues on the Fantasyland expansion with the "area lights" (show lighting) now visible over the construction wall at night, and final touches are added to facades and backdrops. The castle walls look to be almost finished, and the Seven Dwarfs Mine Coaster, not due until 2014, continues to change every so often in appearance. Epcot has construction projects at Test Track (Cool Wash), France bakery and something new outside Canada. The big story, though, is the opening a week ago of the third wing of Art of Animation, dedicated to Lion King. We take our customary closer look!
