New 2018 phone cases for sale at Tomorrowland Light and Power Company.

IMG 2091

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.

IMG 2092

IMG 2093

It looks like they attempted to clean the Casey Jr. Splash ‘N’ Soak Station, but it needs repainting at this point.

IMG 2094

IMG 2095

The fried chicken is gone from Prince Eric’s Village Market, replaced with the ubiquitous Jumbo Turkey Leg.

This and That

The fountain near First Aid is still gone and may not be coming back…

IMG 2239

One of the Liki Tikis in Adventureland has been removed for maintenance.

IMG 2241

IMG 2242

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.

IMG 2243

Remaining Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party apparel being sold in Caribbean Plaza for some reason. Some shirts were down to $14.99.

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.

IMG 2258

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.

IMG 2259

The maple popcorn in Frontierland is sadly no more…

IMG 2260

IMG 2313

IMG 2323

IMG 2324

The walls we saw back here a few weeks ago were for this new cast access walkway to backstage behind the Tomorrowland Light and Power Company.

IMG 2325

Millenial Pink has joined the roster of MagicBand colors. I can’t believe they didn’t call it rose gold…

IMG 2326

People seem to still not know that iCan exists. He’s listed on the times guide and can be seen daily in Tomorrowland.

IMG 2327

The Lunching Pad now has a Barbecue For Sandwich. You go try it.

  1. Was your comment about the BBQ at the lunching pad meant to infer you don’t trust any food from that venue?

  2. My guess from personal experience is that those two turrets of Cinderella Castle are the only things that won’t go behind a refurbishment or construction wall in 2018

  3. They have no conscience with these mugs. I don’t even drink coffee and I want the Robin Hood and Hook mugs. I know Tom bought the Castle Turret one for sure

  4. OMG! You just broke my heart in a thousand pieces!!! No more fried chicken at Prince Eric’s!!! ???????????????????? ????????????????

  5. don’t know how I missed 1CAN . reminds me of push the talking trash can . for the wife & I sometimes it is the little things that can make a dull day @ a theme park bright . watching kids faces when they encounter something like this can make our day. I can still remember PUSH singing happy birthday to me & me giving some kids trash to feed PUSH because he said he was hungry.
