Minnie now has her Mickey, as the Mickey Balloon Souvenir Popcorn Bucket is now at select Popcorn Carts in Disneyland!
The Magic Kingdom is hoppin’! Before we even got into the park we saw construction and changes at the parking lot trams, then spotted MORE construction updates around Cinderella Castle and on the new Tron attraction. And that’s all before we checked on the park-wide transition to paper straws, noticed the return of the Mickey sippers, and checked out a ton of new merchandise…
Catch up on all of the changes, updates, and new things to buy right here!
What better place to be on a picture-perfect Florida day than Disney World’s Magic Kingdom?
We’ll dive into the newest treats, merch, and more around the park. But we’re going to start by taking a look back…
Disney’s Walk Around the World Bricks
It was announced this week that Disney’s Walk Around the World Bricks are going to be removed in the coming months to make way for reconfigurations of pathways to improve the comings and goings of guests. [Read more…]
Hello from the Magic Kingdom! We spotted the return of a must-have popcorn bucket, construction updates, new merchandise, frames for the Princess Half Marathon medals, and more!
Let’s get started with the park’s popcorn stands where a must-have popcorn bucket is back in stock!
Disney Parks popcorn buckets
have become the stuff of souvenir dreams! Just a couple of days ago we shared with you the piece de resistance: this Mickey Balloon Popcorn Bucket. It’s glorious in every way — you can check it out here! And, of course, there’s the incredible AP Exclusive Steamboat Willie popcorn bucket, which sold out immediately upon its arrival in Disneyland!
But we have, perhaps, found the only popcorn bucket even cuter than Mickey Mouse. And that’s the queen of all things: Minnie Mouse.
First things first, we found this pitch-perfect Minnie Mouse Balloon Popcorn Bucket at Disneyland! It’s located in several locations.
Happy weekend! Here’s all the Disney food news this week!
It’s time for another festival to start! Check out all the details on the 2019 Epcot Festival of the Arts, which started January 18 and runs through February 25, including FULL menus and lots of food photos! Be sure to check out our Best of the Fest!

You might remember the solid color Mickey Balloon Bucket which you could find in Magic Kingdom for a while in red. (In Disneyland, you could find it in multiple colors for a time as part of Disneyland’s 60th Anniversary Celebration.) [Read more…]
One of our favorite times to visit the Magic Kingdom is in November and December when the park is dressed up for the holidays. While we were there this week we found new merchandise, checked out construction progress, spotted some of Mickey’s birthday treats and merchandise still hanging around, plus found a new exit to a popular ride!
Let’s start this week’s update out on Main Street U.S.A. where we found new dresses, purses, yummy treats, and a Minnie sink as well as sweet ways to continue celebrating Mickey’s 90th!
We all know and love the sight… you know you’ve arrived on Main Street, U.S.A. when you spot a bevy of balloons waving high overhead.
And now, at long last, you can bring one home with you from Disney World that will never deflate! [Read more…]
