It’s October in Magic Kingdom, and it’s a wonderful time to be here!
As the temps cool down (in the evenings, anyway) and the festive decorations go up, there’s even more to enjoy, like Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party and the Fall Finale of Mickey’s Royal Friendship Faire!
What better way to say “I Was There” than with the…
New Starbucks “You Are Here” Mug
As it is with the other three Disney World parks, Magic Kingdom has its own newly redesigned Starbucks “You Are Here” Mug at the Main Street Bakery! (Yes. You’re Welcome. Now you have to buy all of the new ones, too.)
This Fantasyland celebration (Dumbo in flight! THE SWORD IN THE STONE!!) is pretty much as popular as all the others, but it’s not quite as in-demand as the new Magic Kingdom Starbucks Mickey Tumbler.
Pumpkin, Pumpkin, Pumpkin
Are you aware that it’s Pumpkin Spice Season 😉 ? In case you missed our Disney World-wide Pumpkin Tour, let’s spend some time checking out ALL! THE! PUMPKIN! in Magic Kingdom, where Pumpkin Fudge has returned once again to the Main Street Confectionery case.
This is in addition to the regulars as well as the current Flavor of the Month, Chocolate Hazelnut.
At Westward Ho, you can add Pumpkin Spice to your Cold Brew Coffee.
Or you can try the Pumpkin Creme Brûlée Cold Brew at Joffrey’s Revive in Tomorrowland!
And a Candy Corn Sundae has appeared alongside the Candy Corn Soft Serve at Auntie Gravity’s Galactic Goodies.
Featured Items of the Month
The Plaza Restaurant isn’t the only location offering a Flavor of the Month.
Pinocchio Village Haus has a new monthly rotating Featured Flatbread.
It’s kicking off with a BBQ Chicken Flatbread, topped with roasted chicken, sweet onions, and barbecue sauce.
Of course, Casey’s Corner has been featuring a Hot Dog of the Month all year.
October’s — or should I say OKTOBER’S — is a Beer-braised Bratwurst on a Pretzel Roll with caramelized onions and whole grain mustard.
Casey’s is also serving up a new, adorable Baseball Brownie, just in time for the MLB Postseason.
It’s also the latest Magic Kingdom location to utilize Mobile Order, the pre-order and pre-pay process now offered at several Counter Service locations.
And since the lines at Casey’s are nearly as legendary as the hot dogs, this is welcome news! Check out all the latest restaurants offering Mobile Order here. This is going to come in SO handy during those crazy holiday busy times.
Goodies at Gaston’s
In another rather unexpected move, Gaston’s Tavern is now serving Fruit and Cheese Picnic Platters. This is nice and all, but I’d love to see the pork shank or that awesome pot roast stew back again as well.
Stop by Bonjour! Village Gifts next door to see the new Mrs. Potts and Chip tea set.
Say Aloha to Upside-Down Cake
Oh, and even though the crazy cute Dole Whip Plush has been around for a while now, it’s been hard to find since everybody wants one! So to finally see it in it’s Adventureland home at Agrabah Bazaar was a fun find.
I know… just STOP with the CUTE already, right?
No? Well, if you insist… 😉
We’ll see you back here real soon!
