MAJOR REFURBISHMENTS TO....a gas station?
Yes very true.
The Hess gas station at the Magic Kingdom Car Care Center closed on August 21, 2006. Apparently, it's going to undergo major extensive refurbishments lasting 3 months! Sounds a little big for a gas station right? Well.. When it reopens, it will have a 4000 square foot structure filled with merchandise, as well as food and beverage areas. Apparently, this is all getting a very unique theme approved by Walt Disney Imagineering.
No need to fret. The Disney Car Care Center and the Alamo Car Rental facilities will still be open.
