PHOTO REPORT: Magic Kingdom 11/17/19 (Return of the Main Street Trolley, Big Changes in Tomorrowland, Emporium Christmas Carol Window Displays, and More)
Hello from Magic Kingdom! It may only be 9 AM, but it’s already turning out to be a beautiful day. The crowds are starting to pick up as we approach holiday season, Walt Disney World’s busiest time of the year, but they’re still manageable. Let’s see what we can find!
Before we even entered the park, we noticed there’s now two completed ramps at the Ticket and Transportation Center underpass. They were open for guests to walk on. Our best guess is that these are temporary ramps being used to level the incline, allowing for equipment to move to and from the construction site at the TTC.
We’re happy to report that the trolley has been returned to its rightful place in the Main Street Trolley Show. It’s been missing for awhile now (a Main Street vehicle had taken its place), so we’re happy to see it back in time for the holiday season.
After the show finished, some of the dancers decided to have an impromptu girl chat and sing-a-long with a little admirer.
A new watch collection was released today at Uptown Jewelers. The collaboration is between the Disney Parks Collection and Citizen.
This parks exclusive men’s watch features Walt Disney’s signature on the face and retails at $400.00.
Another parks exclusive men’s watch design includes the silhouette of Magic Kingdom’s iconic Partners statue. It retails for $375.00.
This women’s watch incorporates Cinderella’s Castle into the face design. It’s also a parks exclusive. It retails for $500.00.
With rose gold accents and a blush leather band, this women’s watch features a vintage Minnie Mouse. It costs $325.00.
This men’s watch features cartoonish symbols, including Mickey’s silhouette and signature white glove. It costs $350.00.
This ladies’ watch has a silhouette of Mickey’s face and diamond time markers. It retails for $450.00.
This limited edition silver and gold Snow White Citizen watch is $895.00.
Oh… by the way… it’s Dapper Day! We spotted guests throughout the park looking sharp and dressed to the nines.
More of Tomorrowland is being covered in gray scrim as accents from the 1994 New Tomorrowland update continue to be removed.
Once the accents have been removed, the posts are being wrapped in gray scrim.
You can really notice the drastic aesthetic differences when comparing both sides of the walkway in Tomorrowland.
Over at Storybook Circus, we were pleased to find that Pete was actually awake and moving. He was trying to persuade guests to take a peek inside his Silly Sideshow.
At the TRON construction site, lots of excavation was underway.
A third smaller crane has also been brought in.
At Sir Mickey’s, we found this new Frozen top for adults and we’re not sure how we feel about it. It doesn’t really make us want to build a snowman and vaguely reminds us of a ransom note. It costs $36.99.
We heard construction happening in Liberty Square and we were able to see workers prepping for more concrete to be poured.
We also feel like the poor tree in the middle of the square is sending us an S.O.S. It only was planted a few days ago and it’s not looking the best.
The high was only 65 degrees today, so that means extra jacket racks EVERYWHERE.
Outside of Adventureland, everyone and their mom was waiting in line to get a spring roll. We love a spring roll as much as the next person, but this line was one of the longest ones we’ve seen for this savory treat. We’ll pass.
As we were leaving, we discovered that the Emporium’s window displays were finally switched over to Christmas ones. The displays are based on the animated short, Mickey’s Christmas Carol.
Well that about wraps up our day here at Magic Kingdom! Thanks for following along. Let us know in the comments what you think about our Magic Kingdom discoveries today. See ya real soon!
