WDWNT Reporter Dirk Wallen visited the Magic Kingdom and Disney’s Hollywood Studios on Saturday and has some newsworthy photos to share with us from his trip:

The free Jingle Cruise posters may be gone, but you can still snap a shot of this one…

New souvenir holiday cup

Some tarps are up on the top of the buildings that house Country Bear Jamboree and the Enchanted Tiki Room

Walls came down in front of Pinocchio’s Village Haus revealing a new planter/bench

It seems this will also serve as some overflow seating for guests at the restaurant on busy days (the seating area was also expanded slightly)

The paint is still drying in some areas

Walls are still up on this section

The giant Mickey wreath is now up on the Contemporary

Moving over to Disney’s Hollywood Studios, the Christmas tree has been installed replacing the long-running Monsters University display


A sparse collection of celebrity autographs now hangs in Sid Cahuenga’s at the Studios, no longer a store and now a MyMagic+ service center

Phineas and Ferb wearing holiday attire

Much of the Sid Cahuenga’s merchandise has moved to the AFI Showcase by the Backlot Tour

The final display in the AFI Showcase from Life of Pi is now gone

Inside the Magic of Disney Animation building, posters are now up for Big Hero 6 and Inside Out

As well as The Good Dinosaur and Planes Fire and Rescue

Next door to the Cars meet and greet, a new quick service coffee and pastry stall is going up

The web at the Honey, I Shrunk the Kids Playset Adventure is under refurbishment

Some sort of permanant stall is going up at the front of PIXAR Place as well…
