Welcome back, friends! We’re here with another roundup of What’s New at Magic Kingdom, and today we’ll be giving you a look into construction, merchandise, ride maintenance, and even a new dining area!
There’s a lot to see, so let’s hop right in.
Speaking of hopping on in…
We spotted the new Sensational Six buses at the Magic Kingdom bus stop while we were heading into the park! Hot diggity dog!
Magic Kingdom Maintenance Update
Pilots, Astro Orbiter is taking a quick break! The ride has been down for a couple of days due to technical difficulties (we told you that jump to hyperdrive wouldn’t work!!).
Cast Members were seen handing out Mickey stickers to guests who missed the attraction. Of course, we had to get one!
While nobody was working on the ride when we were in Magic Kingdom, we were informed that they hope to reopen Astro Orbiter soon.
Magic Kingdom Construction Update
On a happier note, the Tron Coaster is making some great progress! The construction workers seem to be moving along quickly to bring us the futuristic thrill ride.
Just look at that incredible track! We have the need for speed right now after seeing those twists and turns!
On the other hand, the Cinderella Castle walkway is slowly but surely coming together. The foundation is starting to be set so guests have more room to dance and play in the park.
We have to admit we do miss that moat, though!
Previously, we spotted a strange curtain separating the men’s and kids’ sections at the Emporium.
We aren’t sure why it was there in the first place, but it has since disappeared and the walkway is open.
That just means there’s more room to shop, which is a plus in our book!
Magic Kingdom Merchandise Update
While we were hanging out in Emporium, we just happened to find MORE The Little Mermaid merch! (We weren’t surprised either.)
There is an Ariel Shirt for girls featuring everyone’s favorite fish friend, Flounder!
School is coming up soon, parents (whether you’re happy about this or not is your decision!). Send your little ones back to class with The Little Mermaid Backpack!
With all these cute Disney finds, we could have a different phone case every day!
Magic Kingdom Rest Area Update
Located near the exit of Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Miner’s Cove has been refurbished into a rest area! Miner’s Cove used to be the smoking area in Frontierland, but since Disney has created the no smoking policy in all parks, we get a new picnic area instead!
There are picnic tables with umbrellas…
…rocking chairs under wooden covering…
…and even an Animal Relief Station!
No smoking signs are posted in Miner’s Cove, so guests will need to leave the smoke to the Walt Disney World Railroad.
As we were leaving, we stopped by to see our favorite twins, Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum. Looking good, guys!!
We exited the Magic Kingdom marching to the Main Street Band’s Drummer with a smile on our faces and happiness in our hearts.
That’s all for this What’s New at Magic Kingdom, everybody! Check back with us next time for more construction, merchandise, and food updates!
