Welcome to our latest roundup of What’s New in Magic Kingdom!
It was a dreary, rainy day in the Kingdom, but that didn’t stop us from exploring all the park’s changes and updates (including a NEW set of Wishables!)!
Before we dive in, we just want to give you a bit of a glimpse of what we experienced yesterday. Due to the stormy skies, many of the park’s flags had either been removed or rolled up.
We also noticed some shorter-than-normal wait times, likely due to the closures and cancellations caused by Hurricane Dorian.
Some snack carts and kiosks were closed during our visit as well, like Maurice’s Amazing Popping Machine.
Having said that, let’s dive into what we found during our latest visit to the Most Magical Place on Earth!
Magic Kingdom Food Update
In Tomorrowland, we noticed that fall drinks are now available at Joffrey’s Revive. If you’re looking for a simple cup of coffee, the kiosk is currently offering Citricos Coffee Blend.
Magic Kingdom Construction Update
Transportation and Ticket Center
We have several construction updates to unpack today, including the construction we saw near the Transporation and Ticket Center. The construction work we saw was in the area where the trams used to pick up and drop off Magic Kingdom guests.
Construction work continues around the entrance to Magic Kingdom. It looked like most — if not all — of the Disney’s Walk Around the World bricks had been removed in the blocked off area.
We’ll keep you updated as this construction progresses!
In Liberty Square, we noticed that the doors along the newly reopened Cinderella Castle walkway had been painted.
We’ll let you know as we learn more about this construction project!
Main Street, U.S.A.
While we were walking down Main Street, U.S.A., we noticed a yellow decoration we didn’t recognize on the top of the popcorn cart. A Cast Member mentioned it was added a while back, but the umbrella that is usually up and open covers the top of the cart.
The yellow motif helps the cart to better match the other carts near Cinderella Castle.
In Tomorrowland, construction is still progressing on the TRON Lightcycle Run, which is expected to open in time for Disney World’s 50th-anniversary celebrations in 2021.
We recently shared a look at the costumes and ride vehicles for this highly-anticipated attraction — you can take a look here!
Magic Kingdom Merchandise Update
We found several new-to-us merchandise items during our latest visit to Magic Kingdom, including two Rebecca Hook necklaces in Uptown Jewelers. We spotted an Evil Queen necklace ($125)…
and a Mickey Balloon necklace ($175)! Which do you like best??
Also in Uptown Jewelers, we spotted some new Pandora charms inspired by The Nightmare Before Christmas.
You can get a set of two charms for $150, and you have the option to purchase the pumpkin charm as an add-on.
We’re delightfully spooked by the Jack and Sally charm!
In The Emporium (and Big Top Treats) we found a new UGears Castle for $149.99.
Have you ever put together a model like this before?
Also in The Emporium, we noticed a super cute Halloween-themed Chip ‘n Dale iPhone case for $29.99. They are just the cutest, aren’t they?!
We could never have too many Disney keychains, right? We spotted this light-up Mickey Pumpkin keychain ($12.99) in The Emporium and Big Top Treats.
This would be perfect to use during Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party!
Tomorrowland Light & Power Co.
In Tomorrowland Light & Power Co., we found some Halloween options on the D-Tech on Demand machines. Can you spot Witch Minnie?
If you’re an Annual Passholder, the Vampire Mickey design would be a great choice as well.
In case you missed it, a NEW collection of Winnie the Pooh Wishables debuted yesterday, and we found them all over Magic Kingdom!
If you don’t want to be surprised, you can choose Tigger on his own for $9.99.
If you enjoy the thrill of being surprised, you can purchase a mystery bag ($9.99), which comes with either Rabbit, Winnie the Pooh, a Hunny Pot, or a Heffalump!
