It’s the holiday season at Disney World!
You can bet we’ve spent much of our time strolling through a decked-out Magic Kingdom, and we want to take you along! We’re checking out all the updates in Disney World’s flagship park in food, construction, and merchandise!
Before we jump in, we’ve got a few general updates! For one, it was SO cold yesterday that Splash Mountain only had a five-minute wait! It’s usually one of the longest in the park.
Did you know some of the custodial Cast Members at Disney World are pretty darn talented? We passed by this Cast Member (Matt!) in Liberty Square who made some snazzy water art of Santa Goofy.
So cute! We can’t get over how perfect this drawing is!
Magic Kingdom Food Updates
On our last visit, we noticed that Westward Ho was open on a weekday. Today, however, it was back to being closed — potentially due to the lower crowds.
Magic Kingdom Construction Updates
Main Street Train Station
The BIGGEST construction update was at the Main Street Train Station. Though the Walt Disney World Railroad has been unavailable for a while now, we haven’t seen much work on this particular station.
Until now, that is! The whole station was surrounded by construction scrim. Hmm…
Rivers of America
Rivers of America is still drained and we were able to peek over at some of the construction equipment parked in the riverbed. We sure hope to see water flowing in these channels again soon!
As always, we took a peek at the progress of TRON Lightcycle Run. That canopy is really starting to take shape! From the back, you can see the form of it is almost fully intact.
Magic Kingdom Merchandise Updates
Several locations around Magic Kingdom including Fantasy Faire, Star Traders, Emporium, Uptown Jewelers, Ye Olde Christmas Shoppe, and Frontier Trading Post all were offering the 30% off holiday sale! And yes, discounts stack!
At the Emporium we spotted the new Soul Face Masks along with the other Soul merchandise we spotted recently.
You can get a Soul Cat design or a Half Note Jazz Club design for $9.99.
Frontier Trading Post
Over at Frontier Trading Post, we found several new pins celebrating the 10th Anniversary of Tangled. There are these three Tangled pins for $19.99 each…
…and this JUMBO limited-edition Tangled pin for $64.99.
Plus, we spotted this sweet Dapper Mickey and Minnie pin for $17.99.
If you’ve ever done some window shopping in Magic Kingdom, you’ve probably spotted this MASSIVE Arribas Brothers Cinderella Castle. Well, it got a price increase! You can now snag this baby for $49,000. WHEW.
And there’s a super sweet update at the Silhouette Carts! Right now, they’re offering a fun plaid paper instead of just the usual black for Christmas!
And there ya have it! That’s everything new in Magic Kingdom. We’ll be back with more updates soon!
