Many people have been speculating what has been going on at the corner hill where the buses turn into the Magic Kingdom area.
Strong rumors have been heard that this will be the new guest smoking area for Magic Kingdom Park. Disney did not want to put the smoking area right outside the gate as it would be an unpleasant first impression for guests coming into the park.
At first this area was cleared and the train track was rerouted because of Tron Lightcycle Power Run construction. Now a concrete sidewalk has been put in along with the retainer wall. As soon as the wall is finished, landscaping will go in and that shouldn't take long at all. The new smoking area should be open and ready to go for the May 1 deadline.
