We’ve been spending a lot of time — like, A LOT — at Animal Kingdom lately. No real surprise there, as it’s home to the brand new land, Pandora — The World of AVATAR. But while entire new lands are always the biggest news, that doesn’t mean things aren’t happening all over the World.
So we thought we’d take a little trip to the Magic Kingdom today!
Of course, you likely already know that Happily Ever After, the new nighttime spectacular, is lighting up the night for Magic Kingdom guests!
The show is a hit, with high crowds still pouring in to see it. Know what else is a hit? The Light Up Cotton Candy which you can grab at a nearby Popcorn Cart to go with the show!
Over in Fantasyland, Cheshire Cafe is serving up a new signature item: the Cheshire Cat Tail!
They’re essentially Chocolate Danish Twists, decorated with stripes of icing colored to resemble — of course — the Cheshire Cat.
Everyone is excited to get one! And I do mean EVERYONE.
Now, I’m not sure if Tigger himself needs any caffeine (he’s naturally bouncy!).
But if YOU do, take note that Cold Brew Coffee is now on the menu above, too.
Prince Eric is serving up the new Pretzel Royale at his Village Market.
Well, it’s new to Magic Kingdom, that is.
You may already know it as the Jumbo Pretzel from Epcot’s Germany Pavilion.
Look for the Under the Sea Treat — which is actually a cupcake — here, too.
Just down the way, Gaston is entertaining his adoring guests with the Tavern’s Trio of Macarons.
Choices are either Pistachio, Raspberry, and Lemon, or Chocolate, Vanilla, and Coffee.
Though you can find the Kingdom of Cute Vinylmation series in Disney Springs (in the Marketplace Co-Op) or in Disneyland’s Downtown Disney District, the line is certainly appropriate to feature in a post about Magic Kingdom.
We were after the Popcorn (read the vintage box story here!) and Dole Whip, naturally.
But we got a second Castle.
It’s the thrill of the hunt, folks!
We had to “settle” for a REAL Dole Whip instead …
Here’s one more new thing you can find at Tortuga Tavern: the Tortuga Island Dessert!
This surprisingly tasty treat is a chocolate almond cake topped with a red caramel dome, surrounded by blue whipped cream.
Candied sunflower seeds and chocolate gold coins are the finishing touches. Yep, this looks super weird. We thought so, too. But it’s actually REALLY good.
We actually snagged this Pirate Cake Pop at the Main Street Bakery.
But clearly it’s custom made for an Adventureland photo op!
Pizza Frusta has hit the futuristic scene in Tomorrowland!
Stop by Cool Ship for this folded pizza-on-the-go, available in pepperoni and sausage or cheese.
Cool down with a Sno-Cone at the Tomorrowland Snack Cart, post-Frusta.
Flavor options are Cherry, Blue Raspberry, Grape, and Rainbow.
Now, we have’t tried it… yet.
But you should know that Plaza Restaurant has added Baked Honey-Barbecued Brisket Mac and Cheese to the menu.
So… GET THAT.
Wait. So you’re saying that’s not enough Magic Kingdom for you? Well then, here are a few more scenes…
… from the Most Magical Place on Earth!
We’ll see you real soon!
