Hello everybody! I hope you’re ready to join us on another adventure as we discover just what waits in store for us today at Walt Disney World. Today we took a walk around the many lands of Magic Kingdom and traveled through the star studded streets of Hollywood Studios. We definitely found some surprises, so let’s jump in!

We started off our day by climbing aboard this brand new Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary Celebration Bus! These new bus wraps help get guests into the spirit of  “The World’s Most Magical Celebration” by displaying iconic characters like Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Chip, and Dale.

We walked through Cinderella Castle this morning and stopped to admire the beautiful fountain commemorating the princess herself.

We’re getting geared up to speed around the track of the upcoming TRON Lightcycle / Run! Take a look as construction progresses on the attraction.

Over at Tomorrowland Light & Power Co. we found a new “Loki” magnet that even the Time Variance Authority would be proud of! This magnet displays Miss Minutes from the Disney+ series. It is available for $14.99.

Splash Mountain is still currently seeing work to the exterior of the attraction. But don’t worry, you can still get your Br’er Rabbit fix as the attraction remains open. One place you won’t be able to find the beloved character though is Main Street, U.S.A., where his bronze statue, along with every other character statue in the area, has been removed.

We decided to hop on over to Disney’s Hollywood Studios!

We found a another new surprise soar in today, which was the arrival of Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary Celebration gondola wraps! These new designs also feature Mickey, Minnie, Chip, and Dale. If you want to see the newly designed vehicles in action, check out our TikTok here. We found this gondola flying through the sky over at Disney’s Hollywood Studios Skyliner Station.

Although we expected large crowds for the holiday weekend, we were surprised to find that most areas of the park didn’t seem too crowded at all.

We’re starting to see Lightning Lane signage pop up around the parks, and Hollywood Studios is no exception. Take a look at the new signage added to multiple attractions, such as The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, Toy Story Midway Mania, and more.

If you still want to catch a last glimpse at the FastPass+ system signage throughout the park, not every single attraction has yet to make the switch.

“A stranger…from the outside! Oooooh.”

We decided to take a stroll through Walt Disney Presents. While we were taking in all of the rich history of the parks, we discovered that the Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge Display has been completely covered in black curtains. We’re not exactly sure what new offering might take its place, but we can’t wait to find out!

i believe we approach the first anniversary of guests having to be rescued from the skyliner also. we were trapped on one for nearly an hour. but the old disney was great with the comps. under cheapact and josh, don’t expect the same treatment. affects the bottom line too much.

remember when the “magical” express took you from MCO to the magic? so much for that “magical experience”? eh? but hey, you can wait for the sunliner that is under review by florida in 2026, maybe? then get on a bus to get to your resort from disney springs. maybe.
