Construction Permit Filed for Adventureland Veranda in Magic Kingdom


Disney has filed a construction permit for the two-decade dormant Adventureland Veranda restaurant. Although the document contains little detail, permit #20150071729 is a Notice of Commencement for a "rehab" to the Adventureland Veranda location and at least a portion of the Liberty Tree Tavern location (abbreviated as AD/LIB). The diagram included in the permit (below) and the timing of the lengthy Liberty Tree Tavern renovations, imply that the two dinning locations may share new backstage facilities. The reference to main construction site as "Verandah Restaurant" is likely a temporary project name. It is currently rumoured among Cast that the new dining location will be tied to the Jungle Cruise attraction storyline.
