    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.
    Remember, Dreams Come True!

    this is interesting, because there are so many different options of things to buy at the world, so why would you buy it at a gas station.

    Don't know if it has been there for a while but once upon a time there was a gift shop at the car care center, it was a great place to keep kids busy while dad made sure the car was ready for the long drive home, or to pick up a few thing you forgot to get at the park. This was of course back when MK was the only park.

    I was thinking the same thing, maybe it will be a normal little independent convenience shop, but then why would WDI be taking part in designing it?
    hmmm
