Bright Suns from Magic Kingdom and Disney’s Hollywood Studios! As we enter the final weekend of January, we’re in for a pretty exciting day — and our two-park adventure doesn’t even include the opening of the Disney Springs M&M’s Store. However, we do have a new Lightsaber, a reopened snack location, and new merchandise in today’s Walt Disney World trek. Let’s head in and see what’s new.
Moving onto Tomorrowland, we’re still monitoring the slow and steady work on the illuminated canopy of TRON Lightcycle / Run. As is often the case on weekends, there was no activity on the work site today.
On the Rivers of America in Frontierland, one of the Tom Sawyer Island rafts has reappeared upon the refilled waterway.
In Adventureland, we stopped at “Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room” for, well, no particular reason. While there are several attractions that doesn’t always get much attention from guests, the Tiki Room is probably ignored more than most — though not deservedly so.
Heading back to The Hub, and then down Main Street, we caught a few character cavalcades which included this occurrence of the Mickey and Friends Cavalcade.
The Fantasyland Friends Cavalcade made its way through the park shortly after.
As far as our time in Magic Kingdom was concerned, the Royal Princess Processional was the last cavalcade of the day — always a fun end to a visit to the park.
Where we ended with Magic Kingdom we started at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, as the Pixar Pals Motorcade roared down Hollywood Boulevard shortly after our arrival.
At Disney’s Hollywood Studios, we doubt anything will ever top Sunset Boulevard and the Hollywood Tower Hotel in the later hours of the day.
That’ll do it for our time at Walt Disney World today. As always, we’ll be back in the parks tomorrow bringing you the latest news and developments.
