Good morning from Magic Kingdom! It’s a beautiful, sunny day so let’s get started!
We hopped the Resort Monorail over to Magic Kingdom and took a peek at construction happening below at the previous Spirit of Aloha site.
Markers are placed around the site and the large crane still sits in the center of the area.
A new Haunted Mansion Doom Buggy pullback toy is available at the Emporium near the registers. The toy is $9.99.
We hopped aboard the PeopleMover to get a good view of TRON progress down below. The height requirement and attraction warning board were just recently installed and just today we heard news regarding the opening date!
Progress at Tomorrowland Light & Power Co. seems to be trucking along as workers are present on the inside of the gutted building and working on what appears to be wiring or lighting cables on the outside.
Small red flags have been placed at the top of the empty banner posts at Mickey’s PhilarMagic. The banners have been missing for awhile so it appears as though there may be new ones arriving soon.
Fantasy Faire has a lovely pink blazer fit for a princess! The blazer has a small black embroidery along the top right panel and reads the name of princesses on the inside lining. The blazer is $79.99.
Three new pins arrived at Frontier Trading Post today. Two Wreck-It Ralph 10 year anniversary pins and a Cruella Our Transformation Story Villains pin. The Cruella pin is limited edition of 2,750 and is $19.99. Both of the limited release Wreck-It Ralph pins are $17.99.
The scrim over in the Lightning Lane queue at Pirates of the Caribbean remains unchanged, although there may be work happening on the small courtyard area behind it.
Zanzibar Trading Co.in Adventureland across from the Magic Carpets of Aladdin is still missing its sign.
A few attractions in Magic Kingdom have started receiving “Line starts here” signage instead of the usual posted wait time signage. This one looks like a paddle and is at Jungle Cruise.
MaDe kiosks at Big Top Souvenirs are featuring a few new 2023 items including a new phone case, acrylic ornament, and AirPod case that are available for customization.
After a quick trip around the remainder of the park, we stopped in over at Disney’s Contemporary Resort. The gingerbread house has been fully removed and the usual seating area has been restored.
Kaa is on this Our Transformation Story limited edition Villains pin at Fantasia. The Jungle Book pin is $19.99 and limited edition of 2,750.
We popped over to Disney’s Coronado Springs for the remainder of the afternoon to see what was new around property. We found a new resort beach towel with colorful tiles that even feature a few Mickey heads for $29.99.
There is also a Villa Del Lago hat to match the shirt we found some time ago. The logo is a patch on the front center of the hat and is $29.99.
The contactless drink stations at El Mercado de Coronado now have signs directing guests on how to use the touch-free machines. They’re actually quite cool!
That’s all for us today, thanks for following along!
