The Halloween season is in full swing at the Magic Kingdom, as are several large refurbishments as the resort prepares for what should be one of the busiest holiday seasons ever. While the summer was slow, the new attractions and other enhancements that took place this Summer should finally bring in some guests and the Magic Kingdom is getting ready for it (as well as its 45th anniversary). Now on to our latest photo report…
The painting of Cinderella Castle and the installation of the holiday lights continues on a daily basis.
New D-Tech on Demand Phone Cases
A number of new D-Tech on Demand phone cases can be found at the Tomorrowland Light and Power Company at the exit of Space Mountain.
Some phone cases are only available during Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party.
This and That
The newly painted rocks in Tomorrowland can be seen from the Tomorrowland Transit Authority Peoplemover.
The Chewbacca stein is now available at Auntie Gravity’s Galactic Goodies in Tomorrowland.
Construction Along the Rivers of America
If you take a ride on the Liberty Square Riverboat, be sure to ask about the trivia sheets. Guests can fill out the sheet with answers found along the Rivers of America for a prize they can redeem at the end when they return to the dock.
Work on Big Thunder Mountain Railroad is visible from the Riverboat.
For a better look, we also have a video to share with you. Sadly, I did not see anyone working on the finale scene of the ride, so I am afraid to report that we may not see the new explosive finale for the ride in this refurbishment…
While on the Riverboat, we also floated by the ongoing facade refurbishment of the Haunted Mansion:
The glass Mermaid cage that was added to Pirates own the Caribbean a few weeks ago was moved a little closer to the beach for some reason.
The pirate Mickey plush has finally arrived at the Magic Kingdom.
Some of the dancers in Frontierland Hoedown are now disguised as custodial cast members…
Some festive fall decorations are popping up in Liberty Square.
Man, everyone has this hat now…
The Cinderella Castle big fig has returned after a few years of absence, however, it is a bit pricey for the size.
It’s still no match for the real thing though…
The Main Street Electrical Parade Says Goodbye
The end of the Main Street Electrical Parade at Walt Disney World is drawing near as the parade gets in just a few more performances before the final night on October 9th.
Love it or hate it (personally I always preferred SpectroMagic), the Main Street Electrical Parade has been a staple of Walt Disney World since 1977. October 9th will certainly be a historic evening to say the very least.
