Good morning! It’s going to be a beautiful weekend here at Walt Disney World. Today we will be spending the day at Magic Kingdom. We will be checking on construction updates and doing some shopping. As always we will share all the new things we find today. Let’s get started!
On our way to Magic Kingdom, we saw more work has been done on the new Disney Vacation Club wing at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort. It looks like an elevator shaft is starting to take shape as construction continues to move vertical. The new Disney Vacation Club wing is projected to open in late 2024.
“I’m walking right down the middle of Main Street, U.S.A.”
We stopped in the Emporium to see if we could find anything new. A new Disney Princess mug has arrived featuring Aurora from “Sleeping Beauty.”
The mug features Princess Aurora and a flower design. The inside of the mug states, “Sweet as a Rose.”
A new reversible Disney Pins lanyard is now available in the Emporium featuring “The Little Mermaid.”
Next we stopped by to take a look at the construction at Splash Mountain.
More holes have been cut into the façade of Splash Mountain as they work to turn it into Tiana’s Bayou Adventure.
Lighting fixtures have been removed from the wall of the ride queue.
The holes have “LIGHT” written on the small metal panels.
It’s a beautiful day here in Magic Kingdom and crowds are pretty light this morning.
We couldn’t resist saying hello to Big Al!
The new Disney100 platinum Oswald figure is now available at Box Office Gifts. The figure is part of the Disney100 Oswald the Lucky Rabbit collection.
In Curtain Call Collectibles, a new Disney100 Mickey Mouse figure has arrived. The figure is part of the Disney100 The Eras: Walt Disney Studios collection.
As we walked by the Main Street Firehouse, we noticed it was closed today to guests. A Cast Member informed us that they were cleaning the firetruck in the station.
Thanks for following along with our day!
