PHOTO REPORT: Magic Kingdom 9/6/20 (New and Returning Halloween Treats Appear, Labor Day Weekend Crowds, Jungle Cruise & Minnie Mouse Merchandise, and More)

Welcome to the Magic Kingdom, where we’re smack-dab in the middle of the long Labor Day weekend! It’s a busy day at the park, both with regard to guests and all of the updates from within the parks, such as Halloween and fall food, new merchandise, and more. Let’s see what’s new inside!

park-pass-unavailable-sign-9-6-20-4561145

Before we get into the park itself, we noticed a sign which matches what we discovered yesterday at one of the resort hotels, advising guests that Park Pass reservations are no longer available for today.

city-hall-refurbishment-9-6-20-6079171

As we first enter the park, we’ll take a look at one of the few construction projects in the park — the refurbishment of City Hall. Unfortunately, it seems like this project has either been delayed or significantly reduced in its priority, as this relatively small building has yet to be uncovered from the exterior work.

baby-yoda-ear-headband-9-6-20-9670501

Moving on to merchandise, the Baby Yoda ear headband which debuted yesterday is, pleasantly, still in stock at The Emporium. There were a lot of understandable fears that these would be a limited supply and quickly scooped off the shelves, but there seems to be plenty to go around.

mickey-mouse-misting-fan-9-6-20-2-3539733

Our first new find for today is this unique Mickey Mouse misting fan. While we first thought it might be a popcorn bucket (which isn’t a bad thing), it turned out to be a pretty unique item for keeping cool during the hot summer.

denim-minnie-print-hat-9-6-20-2-3845110

This Minnie Mouse print hat popped into The Emporium, joining other denim and denim-look items such as overalls and a Loungefly backpack. The hat sells for $27.99.

jungle-cruise-art-9-6-20-1-1561588

At Plaza del Sol Caribe Bazaar, some new art items have joined the lineup of Jungle Cruise merchandise. This small framed painting is available for $24.99.

A larger version of the framed art is available as a print. There’s also a second variation available in a different style. Both sell for $39.99. If that’s a bit more than you’d like to spend on Jungle Cruise art, postcard versions of both styles are available for $5.99 each.

starbucks-fall-cinnamon-roll-9-6-20-3142292

Moving onto one of our biggest topics for the day — food — we stumbled upon a fall version of the Mickey Mouse cinnamon roll at the Main Street Bakery, better known as Starbucks.

pumpkin-spice-at-auntie-gravitys-9-6-20-3642286

At Auntie Gravity’s Galactic Goodies, pumpkin spice sundaes and milk shakes have returned for the 2020 fall season.

caseys-ice-cream-9-6-20-2896644

Casey’s Corner is also getting into the ice cream game, though in a very much unofficial capacity as its storefront is merely used as a home for the carts.

constance-cake-sign-9-6-20-6047387

Constance’s For Better of For Worse Wedding Cake made a quiet return to the Magic Kingdom, offering up a tragic treat to all who dare.

headless-horseman-float-9-6-20-1-9361945

Our big find for the day was at Sunshine Tree Terrace, with a new Halloween treat debuting for this year…

headless-horseman-float-9-6-20-2-9933035
headless-horseman-float-9-6-20-3-6872107

The Headless Horseman Rides Again Dole Whip Float made its grand appearance today, after Sunshine Tree Terrace was unexpectedly closed yesterday. Check out all of the details on this new spooky item in its dedicated post.

madame-leota-sipper-line-9-6-20-1-3701855
madame-leota-sipper-line-9-6-20-2-9869236

Staying on the topic of food items, but transitioning to the lines and crowds present in the park today, Sleepy Hollow had a massive line of guests attempting to get their hands on the new Madame Leota light-up sipper.

gastons-tavern-line-9-6-20-1-2445291
gastons-tavern-line-9-6-20-2-4389222

The newly-reopened Gaston’s Tavern had an incredibly long line shortly after opening this morning, too. Thankfully, the line got smaller throughout the day.

fantasyland-train-station-track-9-6-20-5416808

While we’re in Fantasyland, we took a quick detour over to Storybook Circus to check out the removal of the Walt Disney World Railroad track around the station. What was a railroad track only days ago is now mere rocks.

seven-dwarfs-mine-train-9-6-20-1-4781955
seven-dwarfs-mine-train-9-6-20-2-6301085

Just next door to Storybook Circus, Seven Dwarfs Mine Train had a 55 minute wait, and a line to match, stretching nearly to the entrance for Journey of The Little Mermaid.

peter-pans-flight-wait-time-9-6-20-8891118

Oddly, of all the long lines in the park, one attraction notorious for long waits — Peter Pan’s Flight — was only 35 minutes midday. The fact that the ride has nearly normal capacity helps keep wait times reasonable.

its-a-small-world-wait-time-9-6-20-3096496

What would normally be unthinkable, “it’s a small world” having a longer wait time than Peter Pan’s Flight, has become an understandable change given the impact physical distancing has caused to certain ride capacities.

splash-mountain-line-9-6-20-1-9788451
splash-mountain-line-9-6-20-2-8647522

Splash Mountain has been popular for a number of reasons: its retheming at some point in the future, the summer heat in Florida, and simply being an enjoyable attraction. As such, it has consistently earned one of the highest wait times since the park reopened.

space-mountain-line-9-6-20-1-8086168
space-mountain-line-9-6-20-2-5394090
space-mountain-line-9-6-20-3-3881934

In the post-lunch rush, Space Mountain had a massive line of its own, traversing quite a bit of Tomorrowland. The trek to the attraction was advertised as 40 minutes, which seemed like an underestimation.

goofy-cavalcade-9-6-20-1-7939799

Throughout the day we caught numerous characters and entertainment, mostly in the form of cavalcades. We’d end up running into Goofy more than once today.

tinkerbell-in-character-cavalcade-9-6-20-9719212

Tinkerbell, all alone on her float, is always fun to catch passing by.

jack-sparrow-9-6-20-2779139

Captain Jack Sparrow could be found intermittently near Pirates of the Caribbean in Adventureland.

band-and-castle-9-6-20-4048049

The Main Street Philharmonic puts on a good mobile show, finishing up their set on Main Street.

goofy-cavalcade-with-castle-9-6-20-8091950
goofy-cavalcade-with-castle-9-6-20-2-8500240

Later on, we finished up our day seeing Goofy and his friends once again. As you can see, the weather was starting to break down a little, so it was time to wrap up.

cinderella-castle-clouds-9-6-20-1877108

We left Cinderella Castle as the dark clouds moved in, and bid farewell to the Magic Kingdom on what was perhaps the busiest day since the park reopened in July.

As always, we appreciate you joining us as we tour Disney parks all around the world on a daily basis. To stay up to date with the latest happenings in the parks, be sure to click here and follow @WDWNT on Twitter.

We were there that day. We noticed many of the wait times were listed longer than what they truley were. For instance we went to Splash when the line stated 60, but only waited around 30. The physical distancing in the queue’s make the lines seem worst than what they are.
