We’re heading into Disney’s Magic Kingdom today to see what’s different in the park!
We’re going to start off with our favorite thing about the parks: food! Here’s what’s new with food in Magic Kingdom!
Magic Kingdom Food Update
Cast Members welcomed us back in for the return of lobster rolls and other delicious seafood dishes!
You can check out our first look, and we’ll have a full review coming out soon!
Now we’ll check on some updates about construction happening around Magic Kingdom!
Magic Kingdom Construction Update
There’s actually a lot of construction going on at Magic Kingdom right now, but it’s not really getting in the way too much! The Main Street Railroad Station had more of the coverings removed this week, so now you can see a bit more of the station itself!
We’re also seeing scaffolding on the Beast’s Castle in Fantasyland…
…as well as some on Splash Mountain in Frontierland!
The construction is likely routine updates and painting, but we’ll let you know if we hear more about that. One ride that’s been closed for a LONG time is Hall of Presidents, and it had a surprise reopening this week.
We saw the new President Biden animatronic that Imagineers added to the attraction.
Another ride that’s under construction at Magic Kingdom is the upcoming roller coaster TRON: Lightcycle Run. As far as we know, it won’t be open for a while, but there’s more blue netting up on the outdoor part of the coaster!
Whenever we’re in Tomorrowland, we take a peek at the progress.
Let’s see what’s going on with Halloween decorations in Magic Kingdom.
Magic Kingdom Decorations Update
Some BIG news for Disney’s Magic Kingdom: Halloween decor has officially arrived!
It started out as simple banners with Fall colors…
…but now we’re also seeing the classic carved Jack-O-Lanterns around Main Street, U.S.A.!
Above the exit to the Magic Kingdom, Mickey’s classic saying “See ya real soon” is written in the pumpkins!
It’s so fun seeing Fall come to Disney World.
While we were in the park, we thought a little shopping trip couldn’t hurt.
Magic Kingdom Merchandise Update
In the Emporium on Main Street, U.S.A., we found some new Wishables with an Enchanted Tiki Room theme!
Many of the characters in this collection are only available in the mystery packs for $12.99, but you can get the Rosita bird for $9.99.
We also visited Uptown Jewelers and found the new Casey’s Corner Jersey had been restocked.
This popular shirt sold out fast when it came out, but it’s available again at Uptown Jewelers for $59.99. You can also get the super cute matching Casey’s Corner dress!
Also in Uptown Jewelers, we found new Haunted Mansion Pandora charms!
The charms had a picture of Madame Leota on the front with her epitaph on the back.
At the same spot, we saw a Hocus Pocus Pandora charm as well.
The three eclectic witches were on one side with “Welcome to the Sisterhood” on the other.
On our way out, we stopped by some rides to see what the lines and crowds looked like.
Ride Wait Times and Crowds
Let’s see what some ride wait times looked like around the parks! In Tomorrowland, we stopped to say hello to Buzz before heading to a ride!
The Peoplemover had a looong line, with a wait time of about 40 minutes, according to a Cast Member.
Over in Fantasyland, The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh had a time of 30 minutes.
But Seven Dwarfs Mine Train across the path had a line that was 105 minutes long. This ride is one that you’ll want to hurry to in the morning, because it usually has a long wait!
