Time to take a stroll through the kingdom, the Magic Kingdom that is!
We recently made a visit to Walt Disney World’s OG park, and we’re so excited to share with you everything that we found! Let’s dive on in!
Magic Kingdom Food Update
We headed into Magic Kingdom’s classic sweet shop to see what was going on with their holiday treats. It looks like their bakery case is in the “in-between” stages of Halloween and Christmas. They have Christmas cupcakes, but they still have several Halloween cookies remaining.
Just down the street in Magic Kingdom’s Starbucks location, we spotted the classic Mickey Cinnamon Roll.
If you’ll notice, our little friend returned to his usual form after previously having orange icing for the Halloween season.
Magic Kingdom Construction Update
The holiday spirit is really in the air! Christmas decorations are up all around the park, including the big Christmas tree and the wreaths on the lamp posts.
They’ve continued adding more decorations throughout the week, including these very large toy soldiers!
In Tomorrowland, the stage got a festive makeover with futuristic trees, garland, and wreaths.
We’re eager to see how they use this stage for the holiday season.
Stage Construction in Front of the Castle
We also noticed (How could you not?!) that a stage had been constructed in the area right in front of Cinderella Castle.
We’re not yet sure what this stage is for, but it’s draped in purple fabric and has rope bridges connecting the two parts. We did spot filming taking place in the area and we suspect it could potentially be for the holiday special!
We’ll be keeping watch on any updates here.
Magic Kingdom Merchandise Update
Tomorrowland Light & Power Co
In Space Mountain’s gift shop, we spotted several new pieces of Star Wars merchandise. These magnets inspired by The Mandalorian look just like cool comic book covers!
And these new pins are a great way to rep Galaxy’s Edge! One features the Batuu skyline while the other is a slider-style with a mini Millennium Falcon.
We also found this new set of pins — also inspired by Walt Disney World’s newest land.
If you want to snag one, we suggest you hurry. We aren’t sure how much longer they’ll be available.
When we dropped into the Emporium on Main Street, we found several new items in the shop! This set of princess dolls from Ralph Breaks the Internet would be a perfect Christmas gift!
The new Walt Disney World Holiday tee has arrived, and there’s a Mickey Santa hat on the logo! You can snag this shirt for only $24.99.
Also, we found this VERY fuzzy Walt Disney World sweatshirt!
It doesn’t get cold often in Florida, but when it does, this might be just right.
Walking around in Haunted Mansion’s gift shop, Memento Mori, we noticed that the Madame Leota pillow had been restocked!
The pillow is modeled to look like Leota’s tombstone outside of the attraction.
Frontier Trading Co
In Frontierland, we found this ADORABLE new Christmas Mickey Mouse pin! Mickey looks perfectly ready to spread some Christmas cheer to good girls and boys everywhere.
Plaza del Sol Caribe Bazaar
Outside of Pirates of the Caribbean, we spotted some merchandise that we’d never noticed before. These blankets came in several colors and patterns and were only $28.16 a piece!
Last but not least in merchandise, we spotted this new “But Daddy, I love him!” hat inspired by The Little Mermaid. For $27.99 you can wear one of the most iconic lines from the film right on your head.
Magic Kingdom Attractions Update
Capture Your Moment Sessions
While it’s not technically an attraction, it’s certainly a unique experience! PhotoPass photographers were out advertising for the Capture Your Moment Sessions, as there were still times available. For $50, a PhotoPass photographer will host a private photo session for your group of 8 or less!
During your 20 minute session, the photographer will walk wherever you’d like to go between the train station and the castle. For an extra $50 and 20 minutes, your party can have photos taken in other areas of the park! They also have exclusive props available.
Splash Mountain Down…Again
Splash Mountain was closed for technical difficulties yet again in Magic Kingdom.
Cast Members were outside to deliver the news to guests, and the queue was roped off from entry.
That’s all that we have from our visit to Magic Kingdom! Stay tuned to DFB for all your Disney news, as there will certainly be more holiday and Christmas fun coming your way.
