PHOTO REPORT: Magic Kingdom 1/29/20 (Retro Spirit Jersey, Splash Mountain Refurbishment, New Finding Nemo Kitchenware, Colorful Fab 5 Merchandise, and More)

Hello from the most magical place on earth! We’re at Magic Kingdom today and we’re ready to have an adventure. Let’s see what’s going on around the park!

First stop Main Street U.S.A.! The citizens of Main Street (with the help of the Dapper Dans) pulled guests into a kick line to the tune of “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.”

PhotoPass lines for that iconic Cinderella Castle shot were forced to wind around some roped off concrete work.

We walked into the Emporium and had to do a double take. It had been rearranged! Pins, phone cases, and MagicBands are now on the walls once lined with figurine sets and toys.

Disney Princess attire and toys now fill the space where the phone cases and MagicBands were displayed.

We came across a pair of comfy black jogger sweatpants. They appear to be a part of the just released colorful retro merchandise collection. The sweatpants are covered in a pattern made of vintage Walt Disney World logos. They also have an adjustable drawstring waist and back pocket. These sweatpants retail for $44.99.

These new dish towels have us saying, “Mine! Mine! Mine!” Inspired by Finding Nemo‘s lovably obnoxious seagulls, these blue towels are great addition to any kitchen. The dark blue towel show the seagulls (who are embroidered in light blue thread) sitting on top of a rock that says “Hangry!” The second towel is light blue with the word “mine” written in multiple languages amid white squeaking seagulls. The dish towel set costs $19.99.

To match the dish towels is a new water bottle. The light blue stainless steel bottle has a screw top lid and features the same artwork as the dark blue dish towel, except on the rock it says “Mine! Mine! Mine!” The water bottle is $22.99.

Across the street at Main Street Confectionary, we discovered that Stitch Extreme Sours candy now offers a Mike and Ike Mega Mix. It’s $6.29.

We noticed some fresh concrete at Tomorrowland Terrace. Sadly, it’s the wrong color and matches Main Street, not the pavement that surrounds it.

In Star Traders, we found a glittery castle keychain set. It features five keychains with individual castle in purple, blue, pink, yellow, and red. This set is $16.99. You can check out some of the other new keychains we’ve recently found here.

An outdoor menu sign has been posted outside of Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Cafe.

Unfortunately, we have to add it to our list of “Magic Kingdom Signs That Bother Us.” It looks like it was just two poster boards slapped together. The edges don’t even line up.

Who needs construction walls when you have a gigantic mound of dirt? Our view of construction on TRON Lightcycle Run was partially blocked by this huge pile of dirt. Clearly some excavation has been happening.

From Storybook Circus, we were able to catch a better glimpse. The show building is closer to being enclosed. You can read our latest construction update on TRON Lightcycle Run here.

Why yes, Pluto! We’ll take a hug.

A new colorful retro spirit jersey popped up in Big Top Souvenirs.

In Big Top Souvenirs, we also found this magnet set of Mickey and his friends. The five rubber magnets feature the vintage style faces of Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Goofy, and Pluto. The magnet set is $12.99.

The construction walls at “it’s a small world” have expanded, causing the entrance to be re-routed.

Tents were set up in Splash Mountain’s flume for its annual refurbishment. From what we heard, it sounded like crew members were pressure washing.

In Briar Patch, we came across a new Mickey and friends fleece throw that we just want to curl up in. The soft blanket is covered in a pattern of the Fab Five.

There’s a winking Mickey.

This grumpy Mickey is how we look in the mornings before our coffee.

Minnie poses while wearing her signature polka dots.

Goofy seems confused per usual.

Donald actually seems cheerful. What a change! The fleece throw is $39.99.

Well that about does it for us. Thanks for following our day! Keep checking WDW News Today for all of the latest changes around Walt Disney World!
