We just spent a lovely day traveling around Disney World’s Magic Kingdom resorts!
And we’ve got a ton of updates, so grab a cup of coffee or tea, curl up in your favorite chair, and let’s get started!
Grand Floridian Food Updates
Gasparilla Island Grill
We started our day at Gasparilla Island Grill trying out a very special treat there — Perfectly Princess Strawberry Cream Puffs. These are three pastry puffs filled with strawberry cream filling and dipped in white chocolate that’s been colored pink. They’re topped with crispy candy pearls and heart-shaped sprinkles!
But just because they look all Valentine’s Day doesn’t mean they’re going away any time soon — a Cast Member told us they would be sticking around. These super light and fluffy treats are $4.99 — and considering they’re shareable, that’s a pretty good deal!
Grand Floridian Other Updates
We were evacuated from the Monorail as both lines were down due to “technical difficulties.” So we ended up hopping on a bus to get from the Grand Floridian to Magic Kingdom. Eh…it happens sometimes.
However, a few hours later in the day, the Monorail was running smoothly again! Whew!
Polynesian Food Updates
Barefoot Pool Bar
We’ve been seeing a LOT of new costumes on Cast Members at the resorts! The Cast Members at the Barefoot Pool Bar also recently got a new vibrant red look!
This look has a very laid-back island vibe!
Polynesian Merchandise Updates
Over at Boutiki, we spotted the Beauty and the Beast Enchanted Rose Snowglobe that features Beast’s Rose. If you’re a huge Beauty and the Beast fan, you can nab this souvenir for $69.99
We also found the Tiki Room Card Holder that’s got us singing “In the Tiki Tiki Tiki Tiki Tiki Room.”
The card holder is $14.99.
Polynesian Construction Updates
The pools are still in makeover-mode and still very much under construction.
This applies to the main pool and the kid’s pool.
The monorail station is also still under construction. SO much construction going on here. But we can’t wait to see what it’s all going to look like when it’s done!
The new support beams are also now visible.
Contemporary Food Updates
The Cast Members at the Sand Bar got the same casual outfit as those we saw at the Polynesian pool bar.
Again, we’re digging that island vibe and the little details that just say “chill.”
Contemporary Merchandise Updates
The Mary Blair-inspired Tervis Tumblers have been restocked! These tumblers feature our favorite couple, Mickey and Minnie, done up in Blair’s vibrant artwork style! These tumblers are $26.99 each.
We also spotted a new Nike Contemporary Resort Dri-Fit Polo for $74.99. It’s got the Contemporary Resort logo on the left.
If you’re looking for a classic style Mickey Mouse V-Neck T-Shirt, look no further! These are available in a variety of colors for $29.99 each.
We also spotted the Pizza Planet Sweatshirt for $52.99 that we’ve previously found at EPCOT.
The Star Wars Sweatshirt is here, too!
We’re feeling the retro Star Wars vibe of this one! It’s also $52.99.
We turned up LOADS of new pins at Fantasia! First, check out this Pin Set that features the Fab Four in Robot form! WILD! The set is $27.99. This set is also available at Disney Springs!
For those of you who are addicted to WandaVision (it’s us — we’re totally obsessed!), we found some new pins, including one shaped like a TV set with the show’s logo…
…and another featuring the S.W.O.R.D. logo. Both pins are $15.99 each.
The Disney Baby Plushes are so sweet. And we just discovered a new Jasmine Disney Baby Plush!
The plush is $32.99 — we can imagine every little girl will want to hug her!
Wilderness Lodge Merchandise Updates
Wilderness Lodge Mercantile
The Mercantile store has been rearranged! The pins are now over by the wall, which gives guests a little more space to walk around. We approve!
We also spotted the Snow White Autograph Book with Coloring Pages — this is the same book we saw last week at Magic Kingdom!
The book is $19.99, and comes with its own markers — which we think is quite convenient!
Wilderness Lodge Other Updates
There are new carpets on the ramp that leads from the lobby to Roaring Fork.
The carpeting is also new in the refurbished rooms walkway.
And if you look closely, there are Hidden Mickeys!
It’s those little details that make us love Disney that much more!
That’s it for our time at the Magic Kingdom resorts, but don’t you worry, because we’ll be back soon with even MORE updates!
