Hello from Magic Kingdom!
We’re in the parks alllll the time because we like to keep you updated with new things we see! And, as things are gearing up for the big 50th anniversary celebration on October 1st, there has been a lot of changes around Disney World’s original park. So, let’s go see what’s new in Magic Kingdom!
Magic Kingdom Food Updates
The Back Side of Water treat has returned!! It was missing for a little while, but now it’s back! This treat went on the menu originally to celebrate the new updates to Jungle Cruise the ride and the premiere of Jungle Cruise the movie.
It’s Cotton Candy and Vanilla Soft-serve, Sprite, and a Sour Belt for $6.29. Go over and grab it before it disappears again!
Magic Kingdom Construction Updates
Entrance & Transportation and Ticket Center
The Transportation and Ticket Center got a new paint job on its ticket booth entrances!
There is also a new Annual Passholder sign for the entrance into Magic Kingdom!
The yellow matches the new design of the updated Annual Passholder program.
You can’t miss the sign with that bright color!
Main Street, U.S.A.
…Pooh and Piglet…
…Goofy and Pluto…
…Donald and Daisy…
…Chip and Dale…
…and Lady and the Tramp!
We also got a glimpse at what some of them might look like at night once the celebration begins!
We can’t wait to see all of the statues when they’re installed!
Also added for the 50th anniversary are these new Cinderella pumpkin wreaths around the Hub!
They’re perfect for celebrating both the anniversary AND Halloween!
These new wreaths are so fun and creative, but don’t worry, the Mickey wreaths are still lining Main Street, U.S.A.!
Back up at the Train Station, the bushes have been removed! However, the stairs are still blocked off. Guests will just have to admire the pretty train station from below for now!
At Main Street Confectionery, the construction walls are gone!
Hopefully this means we will see the Magic Kingdom favorite open back up soon!
Another fun character statue popped up in Tomorrowland — Stitch!
He is on the side of the famous Purple Wall!
What a crazy little creature!
We found more new character statues in Fantasyland! Check out Jaq and Gus on the side of the castle.
We also saw Pinocchio around Cinderella Castle!
And we were so excited to find Cogsworth and Lumiere as well!
We also spotted the Cheshire Cat lurking around!
Back at Big Top Souvenirs, the banners have been removed and the entrance sign is back up!
It’s looking pretty good, if we do say so ourselves.
We saw even more painting being done inside “it’s a small world.”
But, it still doesn’t look like they’re completely finished!
As Disney gets ready to launch its new Genie+ system that will be replacing FastPass+, Lightning Lane signs have been going up around the parks! We have already seen a few in Magic Kingdom, but now, there are even more! We saw a new sign at Peter Pan’s Flight…
…Mad Tea Party…
…and Mickey’s PhilharMagic!
It looks like we’re getting closer to the new Genie+ system launching!
In Frontierland, the construction walls have come down at Country Bear Jamboree!
No need to go around anymore!
And in Adventureland, we found the super cute Orange Bird statue near Skipper Canteen!
He’s chillin’ on this EARidescent pole.
This one is definitely a fun one to look out for!
