The lamp from the rooms at the Polynesian is for sale again, JUST $300!!! (He says as he already owns one…)

The Reyn Spooner Moana shirt retails for $118.00, but it’s pretty snazzy.

Christmas and Halloween are fighting for the last few days of October.

Signage for Celebrate the Magic on Main Street will need to be changed as the show is departing on November 3rd.

Stitch’s Great Escape is closed seasonally through later this month, so for now it is stroller parking…

This and That

A new Dumbo MagicBand can be found in shops around the parks.

Moana phone cases are now available through D-Tech on Demand at the Tomorrowland Light and Power Company.

You can still make a Main Street Electrical Parade MagicBand, even though it is gone now.

img_4899

The banners taken down for Hurricane Matthew in Storybook Circus are coming back very slowly. Part of that is Disney is also installing new ones currently since the old set was faded from the sun.

There are still Halloween Parties left, but Disney is selling the merchandise any old time now. Kind of frustrating for those who attended, they should at least wait until all of the Parties have happened.

img_4905

I did find some new ladies shirts inside Big Top Souvenirs as well.

Columbia Harbor House now has a shrimp macaroni and cheese dish.

Yum?

The Haunted Mansion

Most of the tarps are finally down at the Haunted Mansion.

img_4915

img_4916

img_4995

The attraction exit is missing an awning right now.

img_4997

The interactive queue is missing a covering as well.

Mousecellaneous

img_4917

The pot roast and the Pilgrims’ Feast are gone from Liberty Tree Tavern, check out our lunch review for all of the info.

img_4967

New “it’s a small world” pin, and the clock face actually moves on it which is pretty cool.

img_4968

Halloween Party exclusive pins readily available on a non-party day.

The refurbishment of Big Thunder Mountain Railroad rolls on…

img_4972

img_4973

It was particularly busy on Wednesday, this was the FastPass line for Pirates of the Caribbean.

img_4974

After seeing this line, Evinrude the dragonfly flew as far away as he could.

img_4975

The Swiss Family Robinson Treehouse is back from its lengthy refurbishment and it is looking fantastic.

img_4988

The only thing that seemed new to me was the no-slip flooring on the upper levels. I could be wrong, this sin’t an attraction I do very often.



img_5012

OK, I think it is time to abolish the bays at Cosmic Rays when most of them are the same.

img_5013

The BB-8 Souvenir Cup can now be found here as well.

img_5014

The grilled chicken club is new to the menu.

img_5018

The Electrical Parade shirts are still around (in select sizes).

img_5023

There is an awful amount of construction happening down by the Magic Kingdom Ferry Dock.

img_5025

Looks like a new queue area is being made.
