PHOTO REPORT: Magic Kingdom 11/15/20 (“Flaming” Hades Headband, Holiday Castle Dress, New Haunted Mansion and Christmas Shirts, TRON Update, and More)
It’s a beautiful day at the Magic Kingdom! While the weekend may be drawing to a close, the park had plenty of excitement to share on this breezy Sunday. From new shirts to ride downtime and everything in between, let’s head in and see what’s in store.
First things first inside the park, it’s Christmas time — according to Disney, at least. Naturally, the Dapper Dans could be found out and about on a decked-out trolley car singing some holiday favorites.
At the nearby Emporium, new Christmas tees made their way into the lineup. These new “Bah Humbug!” and “Keep it Merry” add a festive spirit to any wardrobe for $24.99, or $22 each when purchasing two.
Cinderella Castle, in a slightly different color scheme than the dress, awaits us at the end of Main Street as we make our way further into the park.
On the outskirts of the hub, the final sections of walkway have finally been completed around the widened pathway and and Casey’s Corner seating area. Even after the area was revealed, not all of the groundwork had been completed and utilized plywood flooring until pavement was laid.
Heading into Tomorrowland, additional painting has been taking place on the supports of the PeopleMover track. Some of those supports have been completed, while others have only received their first coat of white paint.
The upper supports have been in varying stages of refurb, ranging from wire shells to completed pillars with stucco and white paint matching the lower supports.
At the nearby Memento Mori, this adult version of a recently-released Foolish Mortals youth shirt has been released. The adult version, however, is printed on a dark grey shirt as opposed to the light grey of the youth style.
Speaking of that Christmas entertainment, the big man himself, Santa Claus, could be seen weaving his way through the Magic Kingdom today — as he should every day throughout the holidays.
At Frontier Trading Post, another new pin set has debuted which features a meme front and center. In this case, the “NOPE” tagline accompanies this set of four grumpy characters. The set sells for $24.99 or $6.50 per scowl.
Adding to the “NOPE” mood of Frontierland, both Splash Mountain and Big Thunder Mountain Railroad experienced extended downtimes due to technical issues today.
Heading out of the park, we were treated to a sun-filled view of Cinderella Castle bordered by ample Christmas decorations. While the warm weather didn’t quite make this a convincing winter wonderland, we look forward to those cooler days rolling in soon.
We hope you enjoyed our trip around the lands of the Magic Kingdom today, along with some of the holiday offerings that are now part of any visit to The Most Magical Place On Earth.
