It was a rainy day at Disney’s Magic Kingdom…
…but a little drizzle doesn’t stop the magic from happening! When the thunder rolls in, Disney still knows how to throw a party. Step inside the Magic Kingdom and check out everything we discovered at our day in the park!
Magic Kingdom Food Update
Did you hear the news? Buffalo Tots are BACK the Magic Kingdom! Friar’s Nook reopened a few days ago and we were reunited with loaded tater tots. On our recent visit, we learned that Friar’s Nook is recognizing limited hours for the time being. The quick-service location is currently open Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 11AM – 4PM.
You know we’ll back on the weekend to get our tot fix!
Magic Kingdom Attraction Update
“it’s a small world”
The beloved classic attraction is getting some major work done. We stopped by the ride to check out the new walls and they’re pretty huge. The queue is also getting a lot of attention!
Despite the imposing walls, the ride is currently still operating!
Buzz Lightyear Space Ranger Spin
A lot of changes have happened to attractions all over Disney World. To allow for physical distancing, markers have been placed throughout queues to space out guests accordingly. We try to keep tabs on the way Disney is handling the health and safety guidelines. For instance, the line for Space Ranger Spin extends into the Monsters, Inc. Laugh Floor. The Laugh Floor is currently unavailable and offers an indoor area for guests to queue for now.
Magic Kingdom Merchandise Update
Speaking of changes! The Emporium, and other Disney gift shops, have limited capacity since reopening. Despite the rain, we encountered a few crowds. Many of those crowds headed to the shops to take cover from the rain.
The Emporium reached capacity today and the line extended down Main Street. No virtual queue was used, however.
Ye Old Christmas Shoppe
Christmas is starting now, kids! We found THREE new reversible ornaments at the Christmas shop in Magic Kingdom!
Take your pick between Mickey, Minnie, and Cinderella Castle!
Admit it, this design is adorable. Come on, throw us a bone here!
Mickey’s Star Traders
Embrace the dark side with the new Darth Vader Spirit Jersey! We first spotted the jersey at Hollywood Studios and now it made its way to the Magic Kingdom!
The awesome-ness is strong with this jersey!
Lastly, our love for Cast Members continues to grow every day! Chase, if you’re reading this, we loved your Disney sidewalk art!
We’ll be back to Magic Kingdom real soon to give you ALL the food, merch, and attraction updates. Until next time, magical friends!
