I made a few visits to the Magic Kingdom, Disney’s Contemporary Resort, and Downtown Disney over the last couple of weeks and have been taking quite a few photos to share with you, so let’s take a look at what’s new and exciting at Walt Disney World:

Disney Infinity store displays can now be found in the parks

The gingerbread display at Disney’s Contemporary Resort is once again “it’s a small world” themed

There’s a tiny Contemporary made of out of gingerbread

Some of the offerings have Monorails filled with children of the world

There are even 5-legged goat crispy treats…

They also have a hidden Mickey cupcake!

Belle’s Village at the Magic Kingdom has been decorated for Christmas

Gaston uses antlers in all of his decorating…

There is now a Gaston’s Tavern antler hat

Also now for sale at the parks are these Disney food magnets

Moving to Downtown Disney, the path in the front of the West Side is now closed to guests

Pleasure Island is now the Walkway to the Marketplace…

The new bridge around Pleasure Island opened recently

Disney Springs artwork can be found on the construction walls

It seems all of the buildings not staying have been removed at this point and construction should go vertical soon

Captain Jacks and the marina should be removed very soon

Some new iPhone 5 cases with a better safety bumper came out recently

Also, we found the Master Gracey lenticular phone case

Another bumper case

Starbucks is coming to the West Side, replacing Wetzel’s Pretzels

Another look at Disney Springs construction

Another bumper case featuring Mickey Mouse

The food trucks have moved…

They can now be found between Disney Quest and La Nouba

Great pics and thanks for updating us with all the construction and I like the mural pics also. We had an opportunity to get to test out the Food Trucks and I hope they stay at Downtown Disney. I love the holiday gingerbread pics. I can't wait till I move to enjoy them in person.


Forgot – How much was the mini Contemporary gingerbread house?

Also what is the range of prices for the food magnets if you remember and where do you purchase them?
