It’s another beautiful day to spend at Magic Kingdom.
We’re here with another installment of everything new in Magic Kingdom, so let’s get right into it!
Magic Kingdom Food Updates
We got to try the newest fall drink at Starbucks, the Apple Crisp Macchiato, which made us question whether Apple Crisp could replace Pumpkin Spice as THE fall flavor.
We enjoyed the new drink, though we did wish it had more of an apple flavor! If you want fall coffee that’s not Pumpkin Spice, this may be your new fall favorite.
Magic Kingdom Construction Updates
Main Street, U.S.A.
The stage is arranged in a star shape with a blue center and shiny “EARidescent” sides. We spotted LED wiring around the stage so it will probably light up too!
The Beast’s Castle in Fantasyland is currently undergoing construction, and we saw people working on the exterior of the castle.
There has also been a sign added near the construction site that says, “Heigh-Ho Heigh-Ho! It’s off to work we go! Thanks for your patience as we spruce things up.”
The Beast’s Castle is located above Be Our Guest Restaurant.
Jungle Cruise has been through a lot of changes, and now they’ve added a new trophy wall to the ride queue! The new decor features photos of Jungle Cruise Skippers from the past and prestigious awards.
If you want to see this new Jungle Cruise decor, you can catch it while you’re in line for the ride!
And there are now walls added to Country Bear Jamboree.
Construction walls are also now up at the Frontierland Shootin’ Arcade.
And Splash Mountain continues to see more construction progress.
Splash Mountain is undergoing a major re-theming to that of the story of The Princess and the Frog but this just seems to be an exterior refresh.
We couldn’t help but notice the progress on TRON Lightcycle Run too. The outdoor canopy is moving along!
Disney has not yet announced an opening date for TRON Lightcycle Run, though it was originally scheduled to open on October 1st.
Magic Kingdom Merchandise Updates
We found a new Loungefly backpack! This backpack features embroidered characters from The Nightmare Before Christmas for $75.00.
We also spotted the new Casey’s Hot Dog Purse in the Uptown Jewelers.
We last saw this mini bag in Disney Springs, and the bottom of the bag says “The Most Delicious Meals on the Diamond.”
This purse costs $44.99 and you can now find it in Magic Kingdom while supplies last.
We also found a new Shang-Chi Magnet for $14.99 at Frontier Trading.
The newest Shang-Chi Phone Case was also in Frontier Trading!
At Emporium you can now buy a limited-edition Disney World Halloween Tote Bag for $24.99 with purchases of $40 or more. This tote bag features a print of pumpkin Mickey and Minnies and a Walt Disney World logo.
You must spend at least $40 BEFORE paying another $24.99 for the Halloween Tote, so keep that in mind if you were hoping to get one for yourself! It’s limited, so it might not last till Halloween.
There are new Mary Blair Alice In Wonderland Plush Collectibles at Emporium for $49.99. This plush set comes with the White Rabbit and Alice herself in plushy form. D23 Gold Members can purchase more Alice in Wonderland plush characters in an exclusive D23 set for $220.
You can find this plush set and most of the Mary Blair collection online right now!
Note that if you were hoping to get a FuelRod in Magic Kingdom, the FuelRod stand inside Emporium was out of order.
FuelRods are portable chargers for your electronic devices, and they can be VERY useful if your forget to charge your phone!
And in Liberty Square, Memento Mori had a new hooded Haunted Mansion Flannel Shirt available for $69.99.
The front of it has a Madame Leota patch with safety pins screen art…
….and also patches of the Hitchhiking Ghosts and another spooky Haunted Mansion resident.
The back has screen art of Hatbox Ghost!
You can find the Haunted Mansion Flannel for $69.99 at Memento Mori.
We found this sign initially in Star Traders, but it’s now officially a Disney World property-wide policy. The new merchandise policy limits guests to two items per person.
This sign can now be spotted throughout Disney World and applies to most merchandise in Disney Parks.
Magic Kingdom Various Updates
And we can’t not talk about how crowds and wait times were INCREDIBLY low this week. We’re talking five-minute wait times for Big Thunder Mountain and Splash Mountain.
It may be hot in Florida right now but it sure is a great time to visit Disney World right now!
