Technology can be your best friend while trying to navigate the Disney World theme parks.
The My Disney Experience app lets you check out wait times, see ride closures, see showtimes, make dining reservations, and mobile order! And while the app does have a map of the parks, sometimes you just need a paper map in your hands! There’s good news for those of you who love having an actual map, because the map of Magic Kingdom has just been updated!
The map features a brand new cover that is bringing us so much joy!!
There is still a COVID-19 warning on the back as well as health and safety reminders.
Then, there’s helpful info like how to use My Disney Experience as well as Park Rules and where to find Guest Relations.
It also looks a bit different inside! We see that a lot more locations have been added to the map!
Monsters, Inc. Laugh Floor is now listed as “returning in August 2021” under Tomorrowland attractions. The comedy show is scheduled to return on August 8th! The Lunching Pad and Cool Ship have been added back to the map, and Tomorrowland Terrace now says it’s “open seasonally” which is probably because they were serving food from the closed Columbia Harbour House, which is scheduled to reopen on August 5th.
You can see Columbia Harbour House is back under the Liberty Square Section, and so is The Diamond Horseshoe, which is interesting because it’s still closed. Over in Frontierland, Golden Oak Outpost and Westward Ho are on the map again.
In Adventureland the Springroll Snack Cart is listed as well as Tortuga Tavern (which is still closed right now). On Main Street, U.S.A., Casey’s Corner, The Crystal Palace, and Plaza Ice Cream Parlor have all been added back to the list, however the Chapeau as well as Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom are gone.
Overall, there’s much more happening on this new map!
Could the closed restaurants on the map mean they’re reopening soon? We’ll keep an eye out and let you know, so stay tuned for updates!
