While passing the ticket booths at the Transportation and Ticket Center, we noticed that Magic Kingdom is completely unavailable for today. We quickly looked on My Disney Experience and saw that Genie+ had reached it’s all time high of $29/person, once again. The last time Genie+ was priced that high was around the holidays.

Aboard the PeopleMover, we can see that Tomorrowland Light & Power Company has added a new glass panel to the facade. This could be a new window display, or a new entrance.

It’s extremely crowded. Being a holiday weekend, we expect nothing else.

We’re ending our day doing a little browsing through the Emporium. We only found one new item, this Meeko crafting kit.
