One of our favorite times to visit the Magic Kingdom is in November and December when the park is dressed up for the holidays. While we were there this week we found new merchandise, checked out construction progress, spotted some of Mickey’s birthday treats and merchandise still hanging around, plus found a new exit to a popular ride!
Let’s start this week’s update out on Main Street U.S.A. where we found new dresses, purses, yummy treats, and a Minnie sink as well as sweet ways to continue celebrating Mickey’s 90th!
The cooler temperatures have officially arrived — at least for a few days — in Central Florida! Guests in Walt Disney World woke up to temps in the high 30s and low 40s this morning. So, as you can imagine, hot drinks are in demand to face a cold day playing in the parks!
Also in demand? The fun holiday-themed souvenir hot drink mug that’s back in Magic Kingdom this year!
The festive design depicts Mickey, Minnie, and Pluto doing their best to stay warm in a wintery scene in gorgeous green and blue hues. [Read more…]
The elves are already hard at work at this year! And you can see their handiwork as part of this year’s new Disney Parks Holiday for Your Home Collection at retail locations all over Disney World.

Ho-ho-ho and how’s it going? By now, I’m hoping that you’re sitting by a roaring fire, listening to some Christmas standards, and chomping on some dee-licious cookies.
What? You’re dreaming of 80 degrees, a Mickey Ice Cream Bar, and a ride on Soarin’ for Christmas? Sigh. Me too. But since I’m not there, I think I’ll amuse myself with doing a little window shopping from my computer screen. (Get it? Window shopping? Ha!)
And, if you’re lucky enough to be in Walt Disney World and are looking for some super cute drinkware to enjoy your cocoa from, you’ll love what we have to show you! Here’s what we found over at the new Fountain View Starbucks in Epcot!
Holiday Mugs at Fountain View Cafe in Epcot
I know what you’re probably thinking — more mugs emblazoned with that oh-so-familiar green siren on them?!? I mean, Fountain View is a Starbucks now after all. But these aren’t the coffee giant’s handiwork! I think that’s why they captured my attention. I haven’t seen them in other spots.
The mugs are actually Dunoon Fine Bone China, and are made in England. So they’re definitely gift-worthy options, elevating your cozy drink experience to the next level.
I really love the artwork on the cups. They definitely speak to [Read more…]
