Who’s ready to take a trip to Magic Kingdom??
Things are constantly changing in the Disney World parks! So we headed out to Magic Kingdom to see what’s new since our last visit. Here are all the latest food, construction, and merchandise updates from Magic Kingdom!
Magic Kingdom Food Update
Adventureland Spring Roll Cart
Let’s kick things off with some SUPER exciting news. On our latest visit, we noticed that the spring roll cart near the entrance to Adventureland is finally reopened!
We’ve been craving this delicious snack for soooo long, so we had to grab some spring rolls for ourselves! When we stopped by, the cart had both Cheeseburger Spring Rolls and Pepperoni Pizza Spring Rolls available.
Three cheers for the return of one of our favorite Magic Kingdom snacks!
While we’re on the subject of exciting developments, ANOTHER one of our go-to snack spots has also reopened. That’s right, Friar’s Nook in Fantasyland is now reopened as well!
And of course, we had to stop by to snag some of those Loaded Buffalo Chicken Tater Bites to celebrate!
We were super excited to see several of our favorite snacks make their triumphant return to Magic Kingdom!
Magic Kingdom Construction Update
Our first construction update came from before we even entered the park. Earlier this week, we noticed that the Magic Kingdom entry sign was under construction. It turns out, this sign is getting a paint job!
The sign is being painted a dark blue color with gold accents!
We’ll continue to keep an eye on the progress as it moves along, so stay tuned to see the finished product!
Main Street, U.S.A.
We’ve also got several construction updates from inside the park! Let’s start on Main Street, U.S.A. The construction walls near Casey’s Corner are finally down, which has us hoping that Corn Dog Nuggets could be back soon!
However, entrances to the quick-service location are still blocked off for the time being…
…but there is open access to the First Aid station next door.
“it’s a small world”
When Magic Kingdom opened back in July, construction walls surrounded the queue for “it’s a small world” as distancing markers and partitions were put in place. Even though those construction walls were taken down pretty soon after the park’s re-opening, there are NEW construction walls back up at the entrance of “it’s a small world!”
While the construction walls extend into Fantasyland, guests can still enter the queue to the attraction. We’re not entirely sure what is being fixed at “it’s a small world,” but a permit has been placed to “remove and reinstall graphics” that we’ll keep an eye on!
Meanwhile, the TRON Coaster has continued to make progress in Tomorrowland (and we can’t help but get more hyped every time we see it)!
Recently, the first canopy piece was installed over at the attraction as the indoor and outdoor sections of the coaster are built.
When the attraction opens, guests will be able to travel through the Grid before blasting off on a high-speed ride on the TRON Coaster’s curving track! Right now, Disney is aiming for a 2021 debut, but we’ll continue to keep you updated on the attraction’s progress.
Magic Kingdom Merchandise Update
We might have been obsessed with the new Disney Dogs Dooney and Bourke collection, but everybody wants to be a cat, you know! 😉 And, while you’re at home watching Disney+ with your feline friends, you can sip on Fall drinks in the Marie Mug…
…that features Marie’s adorable pink bow as the handle for $19.99!
But, you can also enjoy your own DIY Pumpkin Spice Latte as you chill out with the Disney Princess Mug, featuring all our favorite heroines!
You can spot favorites such as Moana, Ariel, and Cinderella…
…along with Tiana, Belle, and even Merida in a colorful design on the mug surrounding Cinderella Castle!
The inside of the Disney Princess Mug is a gorgeous pink like Aurora’s gown with the saying “Fierce, bold, strong” to remind you just how amazing you are for $14.99.
While they’re not new, we felt like the Haunted Mansion Gift Cards that you can find in stores are also a great way to purchase the mugs or all the Halloween merchandise around the parks. The 3D cards have Madame Leota closing…
…and then opening her pretty green eyes, just like the tombstone outside of the Haunted Mansion does!
As you walk the halls of the Haunted Mansion, you can find portraits that change from dignified gentlemen and gentlewomen…
…into ghouls and ghosts that give you hot-and-cold running chills (looking good, Master Gracey!).
Well, that’s all for this What’s New at Magic Kingdom! We’ll catch you next time for more merchandise, food, and construction updates! If you have any questions about what the parks are like, let us know so we can answer your questions before your next Disney World vacation.
