It was a rainy day at The Most Magical Place on Earth, but even a rainy day spent at Magic Kingdom is better than a day spent almost anywhere else.

New Merchandise

My first stop inside Curtain Call Collectables (to grab fresh Fuel Rods for the day) led to stumbling upon these new open edition Mickey and Minnie pirate-themed pins.

Minnie is dressed as Redd. Both are priced at $9.99 each.

In Uptown Jewelers, there were a few new Tommy Bahama Disney Parks shirts, in addition to the Enchanted Tiki Room shirt we found earlier this week. They’re all priced the same at $150.

In Adventureland, a new pirate costume for kids was found in the Pirates of the Caribbean Gift shop.

Construction Updates

We reported a couple days ago that it looks like the moat surrounding Cinderella Castle has been fully drained at this point, so my next stop was to check in and see how the ducks were coping with their temporary loss.

Progress was happening on the refurbishment of the Tomorrowland Speedway, with what looks like work being done on the concrete on the track.

I checked in on the Casey Jr. Splash ‘n’ Soak Station. It’s anticipated to reopen from its refurbishment before the end of the month.

Around the corner, it looked there was some movement of the cranes behind the trees where construction has started on the Tron Lightcyle Power Run coaster. It doesn’t look like too much has happened on the construction site yet, but its not slated to open until 2021.

The cranes are pretty visible from most of the areas around the back half of the park.
