PHOTO REPORT: Magic Kingdom 9/11/20 (American Flag at Half-Staff, Splash Mountain Merchandise Restocked, Halloween Mickey Pumpkin Pandora Charm, and More)

We visited Magic Kingdom on a cloudy, not-so-crowded day with some scattered thunderstorms. The liquid sunshine doesn’t bother us, though. A rainy day at Disney is better than a rainy day at home.

On 9/11, Americans remember the horrific terrorist attacks that took place on September 11, 2001. American flags around the country, including at Walt Disney World, have been placed at half-staff to honor the victims and first responders.

Splash Mountain pins

Splashdown Photos was restocked with some Splash Mountain merchandise in the morning. There were plenty of the two new pins that lasted all day.
