Apparently, Walt Disney World drains the pond in front of Cinderella Castle just about every five years. Here is a photo of the drained pond from my visit to the Magic Kingdom on May 4, 2019. Previously, I posted a couple of photos in 2014 from their draining it for improvements to the “hub” area for viewing shows in front of the castle and the nightly fireworks and daily parade. Today? I’m not sure what’s up. UPDATE from May 17, 2019: The pond had been refilled.
