Hello from Magic Kingdom!
We’ve noticed quite a few new things on our recents trips to the park, and we’re here to tell you all about them! Let’s head down Main Street and get started!
Magic Kingdom Construction Updates
The Jungle Cruise is in the middle of a huge transformation, so the ride is constantly changing! The structure containing dancing natives as well as the natives themselves were recently removed, and now, we spotted a NEW building behind the canoes! Take a look at what the area looked like before…
…and now after! The Boats & Baits and Bites” shack has replaced the space formerly occupied by the Pygmy Camp.
There’s also a NEW exciting explorers scene with characters that’s been added along the river!
The characters debuted in the iconic rhino pole scene, replacing the old one!
The new characters include Felix Pechman XIII (the skipper!), Dr. Leonard Moss (a Canadian botanist), Rosa Soto Dominguez (an artist from Mexico), Dr. Kon Chunosuke (an entomologist from Japan), and Siobhan “Puffin” Murphy (who obviously loves puffins!).
At the Transportation and Ticket Center, we noticed the Joffrey’s Kiosk sign has been painted blue!
It was previously red, orange, and yellow.
We think the fresh paint looks very nice!
Magic Kingdom Merchandise Updates
When in Magic Kingdom, one HAS to visit the Emporium to shop! We recently found this patriotic bucket hat just in time for the Fourth of July!
The denim hat has stars and Mickeys around the frayed brim and retails for $29.99.
While in the Emporium, we also found this incredible tie dye Mickey fanny pack!
This will go perfect will all of the recent rainbow merch Disney has dropped! Get it for $29.99.
Tomorrowland Light & Power Co.
Speaking of rainbow, check out these awesome Pride Customized Shirts we found in Tomorrowland Light & Power Co. (AKA the store at the end of Space Mountain)!
These will look so good with your family name on them!
While in Tomorrowland, we also found this cute Disney Parks Hat featuring Mickey in Star Traders!
The hat goes for $27.99.
The galaxy background is SO COOL! Get it for $128.
Over in Frontierland, we spotted these new pins that celebrate the 20th anniversary of Atlantis: The Lost Empire in Frontier Trading!
The pin actually opens up too! Get it for $19.99
We then found this Milo pin, which also goes for $19.99!
We also found this fun red, white, and blue Cinderella’s Castle pin from 2020! It’s categorized as Silver, which is $9.99.
Plaza del Sol Caribe Bazaar
Over in Plaza del Sol Caribe Bazaar, the store you come out into after Pirates of the Caribbean, we found a pirate shirt with a skull we hadn’t seen before!
There’s lace detailing on the sleeves to make you feel like a pirate! This shirt is $44.99.
Magic Kingdom Additional Updates
We’re still seeing distance dots in some places around Magic Kingdom, like over in Fantasyland.
And there were still markers for when loading onto the ferry boats.
They have been removed from the ferry boats themselves though.
The newer mask signs have been seen on the digital screens around the park.
But they still aren’t updated on the maps.
We got to see our favorite little mermaid, Ariel, greeting guests in Fantasyland!
And we even caught a glimpse of evil stepsister Anastasia being sassy to everyone!
That’s all the updates we have from Magic Kingdom! We’re here alllll the time, so we’ll make sure to keep you posted on anything new that happens. Stay tuned to DFB for more!
