PHOTO REPORT: Magic Kingdom 10/29/20 (“Sharing The Magic” Statue Removed, Riverboat Track Exposed, Monorail Blue Returns, New Christmas Merchandise, and More)

With only a few more days until Halloween, we went to Magic Kingdom today to soak in all the Mickey pumpkins, Halloween Cavalcades, and special seasonal treats as we could. We also found some fun new things along the way, so let’s get started!


When we arrived at the Magic Kingdom, we were surprised to see the iconic bronze statue of Roy Disney and Minnie Mouse “Sharing The Magic” missing from its usual spot at the head of Main Street USA. That can mean only one thing—Christmas is coming soon to Magic Kingdom!


The Rivers of America draining has continued, exposing the track for the Riverboat. The refurbishment for this area was recently extended, and will now not be completed until February 2021.


In other construction news, five more leg supports of the Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover have been painted white in Tomorrowland. All are on the left side as you enter the land, making all the legs in the area now white.


The concrete work in front of First Aid near the temporarily unavailable Casey’s Corner has been completed, with the temporary wood false floor removed.


On the other side in front of the Restrooms, the wood floor is still in place part of the area being refurbished.


Around the corner of the scrim box, fresh cement has been poured, replacing a portion of the wood floor.


Just outside the gate, progress has been made on the second structure in the Resort Boat Launch area, with the roof covering going on quickly.


Monorail Blue has returned to service after being refurbished, including a refreshed interior and the addition of these exterior silver deltas. We love the new look!


Even though Halloween isn’t officially over, Christmas is sneaking into the parks. We’ve already seen most of the new Christmas merchandise released at resorts across property, and Halloween displays have been slowly swapped out for Christmas ones at every other park aside from Magic Kingdom. Today we found Christmas has snuck into the Confectionery, although the cold case remained Halloween themed, with the iconic pumpkin pie rice krispy treats and Minnie Mouse witch caramel apples still available.

With Halloween treats disappearing after this weekend, we had one last Pumpkin Spice Milkshake for the season. Even without the marshmallow straw topper we still enjoyed this yummy seasonal treat.


With the official release yesterday of the Haunted Mansion Minnie Mouse: The Main Attraction collection, we were eager to see what, if anything, was left over today. After waiting about 10 minutes to enter Sir Mickey’s, we found only ear headbands were available for purchase.


With a few more pieces yet to arrive to finish out the Wishes Come True Blue color trend collection, we found this new sweatshirt addition to the line this morning at the Emporium for $54.99.


Just in time for Dia de los Muertos, we found this woman’s zip hoodie featuring the phrase “Remember Me” with characters and designs from Coco. Embroidered flowers adorn the edge of the hood, and decorated sugar skulls adorn the breast pocket area on the front. We found this hoodie at Plaza del Sol Caribe Bazaar for $64.99.


New Christmas designs have been added to the MaDe shirt kiosk in Tomorrowland Light & Power Co, including four designs featuring “The Child” from The Mandalorian. These shirts start at $29.99 and go up in price based on level of customization.


We found a new keychain today which matches a pink Minnie Mouse one we found a little while ago. This strap keychain features a Mickey head charm, a glove charm, a large clip, and numerous small clips to keep individual keys organized. We found this key organizer at the Emporium for $12.99.


We found three new Christmas pieces today, the first of which was this gingerbread scented candle in a ceramic jar.


Featured on the outside is the phrase “The Sweetest Time of the Year” along with a gingerbread Mickey Mouse. We found this candle at Ye Olde Christmas Shoppe for $19.99.


We also found this adorable new Christmas zip hoodie for women featuring Mickey and Minnie ice skating at the nearby Polynesian Village Resort & Spa for $64.99.


We had a wonderful day at the Magic Kingdom, and we hope you enjoyed coming along with us. Have a magical day!
