As we walked down Main Street, U.S.A., we admired the beautiful new Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary Celebration Medallion that was adorned on Cinderella Castle yesterday.

Today we saw even more updates to the Adventureland sign in an effort to make Disney parks more culturally sensitive. The shields have now been removed, as well as a tribal mask.

We were craving some hilarious Skipper puns, so we trekked over to Jungle Cruise to take a ride. While in the queue, we found the addition of a new package stating “Fwd: Jungle.”

Grim Grinning Ghosts have materialized, literally, on this brand new Haunted Mansion Funko POP! Hat by Loungefly! We recently saw this same headwear over at Disneyland, and it has now floated its way over to Memento Mori. This hauntingly adorable hat can be yours for $34.99.

Take a look as construction continues on TRON Lightcycle / Run in Tomorrowland. We’ve seen major progress on this attraction throughout the last few months. Today, we saw the addition of a brand new structure inside of the construction area.

Speaking of our pal Buzz, we are very happy to see guests once again enjoying Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin! This attraction had previously been closed for refurbishment but reopened yesterday to the delight of park goers.

We stopped and had a quick dance break with Mickey and his pals! We were surprised to see that they were once again using automobiles instead of their traditional float.

After taking a stroll down Main Street, U.S.A., we bounced over to Disney Springs!

We popped over to Marketplace Co-op – The Dress Shop on Cherry Tree Lane, where we found the all-new Casey’s Corner Baseball Jersey! This jersey definitely hits it out of the park. It even features a “95” on the back in reference to the year that the iconic Main Street, U.S.A., staple opened, 1995!

Over in World Showcase, we found that you can now make some noise over at Refreshment Outpost! Up until now, the instruments have been available, but with no mallets to play them with. You can now jam out any time you want while taking a trip around the world.
