PHOTO REPORT: Magic Kingdom 9/21/20 (Plexiglass Added To Peter Pan’s Flight Queue, Haunted Mansion Hoodie, New Color Trend Sneak Peek, and More)
Hello from a blustery and (finally) cooler Magic Kingdom! We know this weather isn’t here to stay, but with tomorrow being the first official day of Fall, we are totally embracing the meager few degrees drop in temperature. We had a fun day here finding out what’s new, so let’s get started!
One of the first places we head to in the morning is Cinderella Castle, and today we saw that a long-term refurbishment project had been completed. For several weeks before the closure, this doorway was covered in a false scrim door, covering portions of the mosaic as well. Construction could be heard periodically from behind that door, although nothing was ever seen around it. Today we found that the door had been removed, and everything is back to normal.
Speaking of construction projects, work on the canopy for TRON Lightcycle Run is moving ahead quite nicely, with activity being seen most days.
Some construction work was done overnight last night—this plexiglass barrier was installed in the side queue for Peter Pan’s Flight, allowing guests to utilize both lanes of the queue while remaining socially distant.
At Tortuga Tavern, the windows to the kitchen area have been covered with black plastic. Several shops across Disney property have had their windows covered after a prolonged closure following the reopening of the parks.
We found Chip and Dale in their Halloween finery on top of the bridge in between Frontierland and Adventureland today, flapping their little arms, showing off their wings. It’s wonderful to see these characters pop up across the parks, and to see them in their spooky best!
We also got a wave hello from Winnie the Pooh himself as he was headed out for a honey break. There’s no other “hunnybee” we’d rather meet.
We found some fun merchandise today while perusing the park. First was this phone case featuring characters from the movie Coco. You can find this case in the maDe kiosk in Tomorrowland Light & Power Co, and you can even personalize it to your liking, with your name and for your choice of phone. This case starts at $29.99.
Next we found this ceramic light up Christmas tree featuring Mickey and his friends in their holiday outfits. We found this piece at Ye Olde Christmas Shoppe, but it is also available at Days of Christmas in Disney Springs, and retails for $49.99.
If you’re a fan of the Haunted Mansion, then this next one is for you. This zip up hoodie features the Haunted Mansion logo on the breast, and has the iconic wallpaper on the pockets and on the lining of the hood. But that’s not even the best part!
On the back of this hoodie are the singing busts across the bottom. This hoodie is sure to follow you home! We found it at Memento Mori and it retails for $54.99.
After a fun day at the park, we popped in to Disney Springs and found this fun fan, the perfect way to stay cool here in Florida. Featuring the retro Walt Disney World logo, we found this fan at World of Disney and it retails for $9.99.
Our most exciting merch find of the day was technically a future merch find, as this collection hasn’t even been announced yet. We came across a photo shoot happening in the Hub and couldn’t believe our eyes when we saw that new beautiful blue Sorcerer Mickey color trend. The Spirit Jersey even sparkles! We can’t wait for this collection!
On our way out, we stopped in the Confectionery and found these adorable new Halloween treats in the cold case. Just look at that Jack Skellington rice crispy treat!
Our favorite treat was these rice krispy treats made to look like pumpkin pie slices. They even made the crust go all the way underneath! They really are adorable snacks.
We had a great time at the Magic Kingdom today, and we hope you enjoyed coming along with us. Have a magical day!
