Is there anything like the beautiful view of Cinderella Castle from Main Street, U.S.A.?
We’ve been lucky enough to catch this view a few times over the past few days as we take in all the sights of Magic Kingdom. Now, we’re bringing you an update on everything NEW in construction and merchandise!
Magic Kingdom Construction Updates
Perhaps the BIGGEST update from Magic Kingdom is that Disney is testing a new facial recognition system for park entry. This testing option adds a lane where guests can try out the new system to help Disney test out the tech.
Facial recognition could provide a touchless alternative to finger scanners at park entry. We’re certainly interested to see if this becomes the norm when you’re headed into the theme parks!
Over in Fantasyland, we noticed that the Cinderella Carriage photo op has been removed. Previously, the carriage sat by the Fantasyland walls for a few months so that guests could take photos with it.
More BIG news comes from over in Tomorrowland! The PeopleMover was undergoing MORE testing, this time including the moving ramp that leads up to the attraction. Eek!
This is the first time we’ve seen (and heard) the ramp running since the attraction closed so we’re hoping this means we’re a big step towards the reopening.
Of course, we took a gander at the progress on TRON Lightcycle Run too. That canopy is still looking like a pretty imposing sight in the Tomorrowland skyline!
Magic Kingdom Merchandise Updates
Uptown Jewelers had an ADORABLE new vintage matching line inspired by 101 Dalmations. There are the 101 Dalmations Dress Set for ladies and the 101 Dalmations Bowling Shirt for fellas!
The dress set is available for $168 while the shirt will run you $59.99.
