We’re a little over six months away from the beginning of the Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary celebrations, and we’ve been seeing quite a few attractions close for refurbishment leading up to the festivities.
Over at Magic Kingdom, Cinderella Castle has been getting some TLC with a new paint job, some fixes to the stage area, and even some new decorations. We’ve also seen a few rides undergo maintenance such as Mad Tea Party and Peter Pan’s Flight. And, the next item on Disney’s punch list is here and it involves the temporary closure of one of the sweetest shops in the park.
As of today, the Main Street Confectionery is temporarily closed. We spotted this closure at the beginning of the month, so hopefully, you got in all the cupcakes, cookies, and treats you could before it closed down for its lengthy refurbishment.
When we passed by the shop on Main, Street, U.S.A., it was completely shuttered. Disney recently shared some details about what it’ll look like when it reopens — including some new interactive elements! — and we’re excited to see work begin.
In the mean time, you’ll be able to get your sweets at Main Street Cinema, which is the temporary home of Main Street Confectionery’s wares.
Of course, we hopped over to Main Street Cinema to check out the recently reopened shop! Plenty of candies and snacks were on display throughout the space.
We spotted pre-packaged Confectionery favorites like candy apples, cookies…
…and Rice Krispie treats! Instead of a Cast Member retrieving any of your picks from a bakery case, you’ll grab ’em for yourself to carry to the register.
There’s also a selection of other snacks to choose from, like pretzels, chocolate, and gummy candy.
Currently, the Main Street Confectionery will be closed through at least June 12th, 2021. We say “at least” because Disney World has only released park hours and the refurbishment scheduled through that date. So, it is quite possible that this temporary closure could last longer. We will keep an eye out for more updates and share them with you!
