Good Morning from Magic Kingdom! It is going to be a beautiful and hot day today. We are on the hunt for what’s new. We will be checking out construction updates and new merchandise. I hope you enjoy following along with our day.

Before we got started, we decided to take a ride on the EPCOT monorail to take a look at the construction.

From the monorail, we could see they were doing some paving on the EPCOT parking lots. They were not parking guests in this lot.

It’s nice to see the flowers are still on display at EPCOT. There is still some time left to enjoy EPCOT International Flower and Garden Festival until July 4, 2022.

We finally arrived at Magic Kingdom, and so did everyone else. Looks like the summer crowds are going to be in full force for a while.

When entering Magic Kingdom today, we noticed the 50th decorations were missing from the flower beds. We’re going to do some further investigation to find out where they went.

We could never get tired of this view. Let’s take a walk down Main Street, U.S.A.

While walking down Main Street, U.S.A., we noticed new planters out on center street blocking the construction.

We found our new favorite tee in The Main Street Cinema. This 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea attraction tee has joined the 50th anniversary Vault Collection at Walt Disney World.

We found one of the 50th decorations in the grass by the sea monster topiary, facing Tomorrowland Terrace.

This wait time looks almost as scary as ‘The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror.’
