PHOTO REPORT: Magic Kingdom 1/17/18 (Seasonal Refurbishments, Hundreds of New Souvenirs, So Many Mugs and Hats, ETC.)
Our latest photo report brings us to the Magic Kingdom for a look at what’s new (mostly merchandise) around the park…
Welcome to the Merchant Kingdom!
The 2018 limited release MagicBand for sale.
The seven Dwarfs brown MagicBand is also now available.
Some cute new comic strip style mugs were just released. They retail at $15.99 each.
The pre-packaged Otter Box phone cases have arrived. Star Wars and Mickey & Minnie designs are currently available.
We’ve started to spot some prepackaged iPhone X cases for sale.
The 6S Plus, 7 Plus, and *plus cases are now clearly indicated on the packaging.
New 2018 phone cases for sale at Tomorrowland Light and Power Company.
We spotted this Mickey Mouse MagicBand out in the parks finally, but it just doesn’t look very good in person. It looks like a fan made it at home honestly.
It looks like they attempted to clean the Casey Jr. Splash ‘N’ Soak Station, but it needs repainting at this point.
The fried chicken is gone from Prince Eric’s Village Market, replaced with the ubiquitous Jumbo Turkey Leg.
Some new Gaston shirts spotted in Bonjour Village Gifts.
A Maui “You’re Welcome” shirt for sale.
This Mickey Hand water bottle carrier was new to us.
A redesigned Mickey note pad set.
We also found the Otter Box cases at The Emporium on Main Street.
Cases with large Mickey Mouse Ice Cream Bars and Minnie’s Bow are relatively new.
A new Mickey Mouse home collection has been released, including these bookends.
They retail for $34.99 for the set.
Some new mugs, many of which are also available at your local Disney Store.
More of the new Mickey Mouse home collection.
New character coin purse keychains.
New Mickey and Minnie character ear hats for sale.
The parks continue to introduce more baseball caps… here we see Sorority/Fraternity hats for Monsters University.
New Cheshire Cat baseball cap.
New Mickey Mouse photo frame.
There is even a hat that says “Meet Me at the Purple Wall”, the infamous Instagram photo spot at the Magic Kingdom near Tomorrowland.
This and That
The fountain near First Aid is still gone and may not be coming back…
One of the Liki Tikis in Adventureland has been removed for maintenance.
The new Magic Kingdom map cover features about two turrets of Cinderella Castle. Why do park map covers have to look like the bad advertising we see outside of the parks? People are already here, show them a ride or something they can see in the park.
Remaining Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party apparel being sold in Caribbean Plaza for some reason. Some shirts were down to $14.99.
A new Captain Hook mug.
A new Mickey Mouse photo frame, $16.99.
Kids, cropping a photo was something you could do before computers, believe it or not. You can experience what the early settlers did if you buy this frame.
Splash Mountain is closed again for the second leg of its refurbishment. There’s only no guests complaining because it was 40 degrees that day.
