It was a beautiful morning at the Magic Kingdom. Many people were out celebrating Valentine’s Day throughout the park. We took a visit over to Fantasyland to see guests lined up for the Cinderella Carriage photo op. Guests will be able to stop and get their photo in front of the carriage this past weekend only.
Around the corner, we spotted the Fairy Godmother greeting guests by Cinderella Castle.
Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Café looks like it’s close to finishing the refurbishment. Bay 3 has a purple wall up still, but we expect it will be down soon. Thankfully, it’s been a speedy process.
The Casey Jr. Splash ‘n’ Soak Station has been getting some much-needed TLC. We can see over the walls that the water play area is getting the overdue attention it’s been needing. We can see a team hard at work scrubbing and cleaning off the buildup on the circus train. The elephant car was getting a good brushing, and we were pretty excited. It’s scheduled to reopen on March 24th, 2019. Let’s hope that’s enough time to get Casey Jr. and the animals looking beautiful again!
This is like a magnet for kids. They all want to touch it. And suddenly, I have the urge to touch it, too.
If you’re at the Magic Kingdom, a construction crane can’t be too far away. The giant red crane is now photo bombing from the Tron Coaster site. It’s not too bad, but it can be spotted from a few locations around the park.
The pathway to the wishing well has opened up again, but there is more refurbishment going on at Castle Couture.
The Celebration of Mickey merchandise is still available. The limited release Mickey and Minnie plush have been restocked as well.
A few new pins were released. Muppets President’s Day is $16.99 and limited edition 2000. The “Aladdin” Kingdom Consoles pin is the second pin in a monthly series. It’s a limited edition 4000 pin and will cost you $17.99.
A new Alex and Ani bracelet was released in honor of the 60th anniversary of Sleeping Beauty. It’s a beautiful rose gold bracelet with Aurora on one side and “True Love Conquers All” on the other.
The Tomorrowland Speedway is still closed, but it’s become a quiet place to sit in the shade.
A long day in the park has me feeling a little deflated, too.
I’m sure we’ll be seeing even more construction progress soon. And thankfully the new crane isn’t ruining any of our castle photos, right?
