Disney Files New Construction Permit for Frontier Trading Post in Magic Kingdom


It looks like even more construction will be coming to the Magic Kingdom’s Frontierland. Disney has recently filed a new construction permit for the Frontier Trading Post. The permit, which lists “general construction” as the description of improvement, was filed on June 13, 2024, and includes an expiration date of June 30, 2025.

The project has been assigned to MLC Theming, Inc., a specialty construction company based in the greater Orlando area. According to their website, MLC Theming specializes in scenic painting and aging of structures, fabricating facades, carving rock work, and more. Given the chosen contractor and scope of work, it appears this permit will likely be for general upgrades and improvements to the store.

This construction permit comes just a week after another significant announcement regarding Frontierland. The nearby Frontierland Shootin’ Arcade will close permanently later this month to make way for a Disney Vacation Club member-exclusive lounge.
