PHOTO REPORT: Magic Kingdom & EPCOT 1/25/21 (Limited Release “Stitch Crashes Disney” Merchandise Arrives, New Magic Kingdom Map, Donald Missing For Twenty Days, and More)

Hello from an absolutely gorgeous day at Walt Disney World! We took advantage of the beautiful weather to check out all the new things at the Magic Kingdom and EPCOT today. Let’s get started!

closed-firehouse

With yesterday being the final day of the Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom game, today we found the Firehouse closed, and all the signage pertaining to the game removed. For more pictures and information, check out our article here.

The Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover was still closed today for refurbishment, and while they were testing the ride today, we did see vehicles crash into one another, so perhaps they’re not quite ready to open yet. For pictures and video, check out our article here.

Construction on the illuminated canopy at TRON Lightcycle / Run is moving along quite quickly. The stretch of canopy leading to the show building has been growing daily, it seems.

Concrete work continues in Frontierland, with this large cover having been shifted slightly to protect a new fresh patch of concrete.

After a several-day absence, the Tinker Bell & the Lost Treasure Cavalcade has returned to the Magic Kingdom. Tinker Bell was forced to take some time off after her float suffered a malfunction last week, but she’s back now, and ready to spread some pixie dust!

We stopped in at Tomorrowland Light & Power Co and found a whole slew of new things in the MaDe kiosk while we were there. First, we found that the MagicBands and the Phone Cases have gotten “Limited Release” categories, which currently contain the Valentine’s Day designs.

We had an excellent time at the Magic Kingdom, but with so many construction projects at EPCOT, we can’t stay away for long.

innoventions-east-construction-epcot-01252021-2773669

We found men in lifts working in the ceiling of the Innoventions East building.

More work has been completed on this dividing wall, with framing having been added recently.

We also found this structure newly covered and taking shape further down in the Innoventions East building.

Innoventions West demolitions continues, with the facade of the building now completely gone.

The play equipment is being disassembled in the play area next to the Traveler’s Cafe. We’ll be sure to keep an eye on this area as things develop further.

hidden-rats-france-pavilion-expansion-epcot-01252021-6896949

We spotted a new hidden gem in the France Pavilion expansion today. We have to admit, we’ve felt there was something special about this beautiful scrollwork from the moment we saw it, but we just couldn’t figure it out until today. Do you see it? Let us know in the comments! (Hint: follow the spiral up to the head.)

remy-surprise-photo-opportunity-epcot-01252021-8910915

While we were in the France Pavilion expansion, a Cast Member brought out this celebrity came for a surprise photo opportunity. He was gone after just a few moments, but we were lucky enough to grab this cute picture.

italy-pavilion-la-gelateria-construction-progress-epcot-01252021-8333783

Progress on the Italy Pavilion La Gelateria booth seems to have slowed down, as there isn’t any visible change here from last week.

donald-still-missing-epcot-01252021-9337580

We checked in on Donald’s status at the Gran Fiesta Tour, and even after a staggering 20 days missing, we still found the final scene to be a two-man show. We’re beginning to wonder if he’ll ever return, or if we’ll be forever asking the question, “donde esta Donald?”

partners-statue-castle-tee

We found one notable piece of merchandise at EPCOT by way of this new unisex shirt featuring the “Partners” statue and Cinderella Castle. For more pictures and information, check out our article here.

guest-experience-team-spaceship-earth-featured-image-hero-epcot-01252021-3688517

On our way out, we came across some lively Guest Experience Team and Front Gate Cast Members who were ready to make guests laugh with their antics, all while reminding them to keep their masks on while taking pictures. We love their style!

We had a great day at Walt Disney World, and we hope you enjoyed coming along with us. Have a magical day!
