And that means that a lot of Disney World, including Magic Kingdom, is getting refreshed and updated. The Castle got a brand new paint job and some seriously glammed-up decor. Fantasyland is getting a golden touch-up. Even the gift shop Bonjour Village Gifts got a facelift! But there’s probably one update you may have not yet noticed at Magic Kingdom — maybe because it requires you to look up.
After a closure that spanned over 400 days, we are officially back in Disneyland! We’ve been exploring the fully reopened parks, rides and all, for the first time in thirteen months and we honestly didn’t know where to visit first!
Once we paused and thought about it, we knew we couldn’t let this day go by without visiting some of Disneyland’s most iconic locations. So join us on a little photo tour as we say “hello” once again to some of our favorite spots in the Happiest Place on Earth.
For many folks, Disney World is the perfect happy place.
Sure, it’s a joy to walk down Main Street, U.S.A., but we can’t always jet off to the parks every time we need a pick-me-up. Well, good news! You don’t necessarily need to drop big bucks to get to your happy place. What if you could go to Disney World WHENEVER you want without leaving your house…or putting on pants. How you ask? Our kids showed us.
Every now and then we come across souvenirs in Disney World that are RIDICULOUSLY expensive. And no, we aren’t talking about those head-scratching $14 Mickey balloons that are perhaps a tad overpriced. Think instead a one-of-a-kind replica Cinderella Castle that costs a measly $37, 500, or those STUNNING hand-crafted tables we spotted at Festival of the Arts for $30,000.
We didn’t stumble across anything that was THAT expensive on our recent trip to Magic Kingdom, but the price tag on these glass bowls still made our eyes basically pop out of our head.
Walt Disney’s story and the history of his theme parks add to the magic that we experience when we visit.
Walt Disney himself once said, “Disneyland will never be completed. It will continue to grow as long as there is imagination left in the world.” This sentiment has been applied to the parks across the world — Disney is always growing and changing. We’ve come a long way to get to the Disney we know and love, but can you imagine if there was a Disney World with no Mickey Mouse? Or you took your yearly Disney trip to Missouri instead of Florida? Disney would’ve been VERY different if these things happened.
Let’s take a peek behind the curtain at some of Disney’s most magical effects!
The Disney Parks are known for creating magic for guests around the world. In fact, the attractions are so detailed that we often find ourselves left with some burning questions about what’s going on behind the scenes. How’d they DO THAT? Let’s take a look at some secrets behind the magic at the Disney Parks!
Welcome back, DFB friends! We’re here with another What’s New at Magic Kingdom!
We’re back at this magical theme park to give you all the updates on what’s new! And, we’ve got plenty of crowd updates and the return of a Disney World hidden secret to share with you. So, what are you waiting for? Let’s jump right on in!
Still, that doesn’t mean that it’s a total ghost town behind the gate. With no guests in the park, crews can work on a bunch of different construction projects without having to keep out of guest areas — and work they are.
We recently spotted a moment in Disney World that gave us allllll the feels!
There’s no doubt about it, 2020 has been a crazy year for just about all of us. In fact, it looks like Elsa was even over it at one point! But we recently experienced something at Magic Kingdom that reminded us just how magical the parks can be.
