We’re baaaack… And, with an all new What’s New at Magic Kingdom too (aw yeaaah!).
We have LOTS of construction, merch, and food updates for ya, so let’s take a quick trip to the Happiest Place on Earth.
Magic Kingdom Food Update
One of our favorite hidden gems is Big Top Treats inside Big Top Souvenirs. You can get different circus sweets here like house-made caramel corn, cotton candy, and more; and you’ll also find a lot of the same treats stocked at the Confectionery…without such a long line!
Big Top Treats started up a monthly Goofy’s Glacier a while back, and they are now featuring the Banana Orange Swirl Glacier on their list of slushes.
At the Sunshine Tree Terrace, you can now grab a Strawberry Vanilla swirl and a Strawberry Chocolate swirl. Even better news: You can add the swirls to the newest Dole Whip float option — Redd’s Revenge! They’re currently out of Redd’s chocolate hat, but in the meantime you can enjoy the Donald Waffle Topper instead (still just as tasty!).
Magic Kingdom Construction Update
Ticketing and Transportation Center
Yup, it feels like there is a never-ending amount of construction in Disney World currently. With the 50th Anniversary coming up, SO much infrastructure is being put into place!
The Ticket and Transportation Center has some tram construction updates happening right now. Can they please make them as pretty as the buses are going to be??
Guests are still being dropped off at the same location before the bridge and must walk underneath the bridge to get to bag check and security.
This must seem like a long walk after trekking through the parks all day!
The fencing and green tarp is gone in some places (yay!), and there is an extended pavement in their place (double yay!)
The raised sidewalk on one side remains with the guard rails still in place. The old sidewalk used to have these on either side of the tram road.
At this point, the majority of the Ticket and Transportation Center is covered by fencing and green tarp.
Hopefully, we’ll get to see more progress soon!
(We’re so ready for the construction to be done and over with.)
There was a tall curtain at the Emporium in between the kids’ clothing section and the men’s clothing section. A Cast Member informed us that they were testing something out, but she wasn’t sure what that was exactly.
Hmm, any guesses about what they’re testing?
In other news, Sonny Eclipse is still missing from the stage at Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Cafe.
We miss him and hope he comes back soon!
Magic Kingdom Merchandise Update
The Emporium had same The Little Mermaid Alex and Ani Mermaid Hair Bracelet we saw the other day, but they also had a new The Little Mermaid VHS Case Bracelet as well!
The Mermaid Hair Bracelet is available for $49.99 and the VHS Case Bracelet is $39.99.

Uptown Jewelers has an entire array of The Lion King Pandora jewelry. We’ve seen some of the collection at Ever After in Disney Springs, but there a couple new charms in the Magic Kingdom.

We’re seriously digging Edna Mode’s glasses. Where can we get a pair?
A new Magic Band has made a splash at the Frontier Trading Post! Available for $29.99, you can purchase The Little Mermaid 30th Anniversary Magic Band during its limited release.
We’re still obsessed with the gorgeous artwork!!

Green on the outside, and purple inside!
Talk about flippin’ your fins!
The Nana Cozy Knit is sitting on a shelf at Big Top as well, waiting for you to take her home for $22.99.
Look at her little hat! How can you resist all that cuteness?
Whew! So that’s WHAT’S NEW in Magic Kingdom this week! But don’t worry — we’ll be back tomorrow with even more! Nothing stays the same for long in Disney World!
