PHOTO REPORT: Magic Kingdom 2/23/21 (Work On Cinderella Castle Stage & Moat Continues, Peter Pan’s Flight Scrim Partially Removed, New Orange Bird Shoulder Plush, and More)

Hello from a perfect park weather day at the Magic Kingdom! We love days like this, and made sure to spend our time wisely by checking out all the new things at this magical place. Let’s get started!

cinderella castle stage refurbishment

Progress on the deconstruction of Cinderella Castle stage is moving along quickly, with the metal framing and tubing removed from half of it overnight. For more pictures and information, check out our article here.

cinderella castle moat stage refurbishment

The draining of Cinderella Castle moat has also continued, and the West side immediately surrounding the Castle was cleaned out and dried last night. For more pictures and information, check out our article here.

Unsurprisingly, the Hall of Presidents remains closed, with no reopening date known.

A small section of the scaffolding and scrim surrounding the queue for Peter Pan’s Flight was removed overnight, revealing the roof of a turret behind the scrim. No other changes to the rest of the scrim or construction walls could be seen, but we’ll be keeping an eye on it for further changes.

No further work has been done on the refurbishment of the Gaston’s Tavern sign. It has now been primed one color for several days.

There were several man lifts up in the illuminated canopy today as teams were hard at work on TRON Lightcycle / Run construction.

On the ground, we saw what appeared to be a piece of illuminated canopy that had been assembled off-site and delivered on this large truck.

The concrete work in Tomorrowland seems to have wound down a bit, but we found a little patch right next to the Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Cafe sign today.

The Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover has had it’s refurbishment extended again, this time pushing into April 2021. It’s been relatively quiet up there for the past few days, with only a few Cast Members seen at the load platform, so it seems that training has slowed down. We also haven’t seen ride vehicle testing happening as often recently. We did notice a significant change today though, in that the audio was on for the first time during ride vehicle testing, and could be heard from the ground all around Tomorrowland. We got a little video of it, click here to listen to this nostalgic sound!

magicbands-price-sign-not-for-internal-or-subdermal-use-magic-kingdom-02232021-3937358

We noticed new MagicBand price signs had been put out around the Magic Kingdom, with additional verbiage warning guests that MagicBands and it’s parts are “Not for internal or subdermal use”. This warning also appeared on the inside of Limited Edition MagicBand boxes following incidents where guests having a microchip from a MagicBand implanted in their arms.

We found a few pieces of fun, new merchandise to show you today, starting with this sequin wallet featuring Minnie Mouse. We found this at The Emporium for $14.99.

Next, we found four new Limited Edition pins, each the second release in the series. For more pictures and information, check out our article here.

101-dalmatians-mug-tv-magic-kingdom-02232021-3007090

For mug collectors, we found this “101 Dalmatians” addition to the mug wall at The Emporium. With the square body, it may be a trick to drink from, but we think it’ll be worth it! This mug retails for $19.99.

orange bird shoulder plush

Our favorite find of the day was this sunny little guy. Orange Bird is the latest addition to the shoulder pet plush line, and we couldn’t be happier! For more pictures and information, check out our article here.

We stopped by Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, and on our way in we spotted the new WandaVision bus. We got a good look at the driver’s side this time, and got to see Wanda in all her glory.
