Whew — there’s certainly been a lot of new updates in Disney World recently, hasn’t there?
With the reopening of offerings like the Harmony Barber Shop, plus the return of Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, and even the return of popular behind-the-scenes tours at EPCOT, a lot is going on! Today, we’re heading to Magic Kingdom so we can bring you any and all updates you need before your next trip — let’s go!
Magic Kingdom Food Updates
There are a lot of new food offerings in Magic Kingdom for the fall season! Let’s take a look at what we’ve seen so far.
Over at the Main Street Bakery, we tried the Oh, My Gourd Cupcake!
This treat is a pumpkin spice cupcake with cinnamon cream cheese icing finished with dark chocolate ears. It is $6.29, and overall it was pretty decent, but be warned that it WILL stain your hands orange.
Here, we tried the Binx Pastry Cat Tail which is a cat tail drizzled with dark chocolate and topped with Binx chocolate piece for $5.79.
So the most obvious observation here is that this is very clearly not a cat tail, but rather a cat paw — which makes sense given that the Cheshire Cat Tail that is usually available here is also now a Cheshire Cat Paw (note that the Cheshire Cat Paw is not currently offered here, and you are only able to get the Binx Cat Tail during the Halloween season). Aside from the obvious difference in shape, this was an okay treat. When we tried it, it didn’t seem very fresh, so your experience may vary depending on how recently the pastry was made.
Also at the Cheshire Cafe is the Cold Witches Brew Coffee. This drink is French Vanilla Cold Brew with pumpkin-spiced foam and topped with Halloween Sprinkles and is $5.29.
We REALLY enjoyed this coffee, especially the pumpkin-spiced foam on top!
Casey’s Corner has some new items for the Halloween season including the Pain and Panic Hot Dog, which is an all-beef hot dog, topped with sweet and spicy onion relish, sriracha mustard, and spicy cheese-flavored snacks.
This hot dog has Flamin’ Hot Cheetos on it and honestly, it worked. You can try this hot dog for yourself for $11.99.
Also at Casey’s Corner is the new Winifred’s Elixir of Youth drink. It’s a Black Tea Slushy topped with Kiwi Foam and a Winifred Chocolate Piece for $6.49.
We really enjoyed this drink and thought the flavors all mixed really well together, but beware: it will turn your teeth and tongue black!
Over at the Main Street Confectionery, we had the Pumpkin Rice Crispy Treat for $5.49.
This is just a normal Rice Crispy Treat dyed orange with some fun details on it, but we liked it!
And the final new food item was the Minnie Spider Shortbread Cookie from Big Top Treats!
This cookie was a little simpler, and a bit dry, but we did enjoy the icing! You can grab this treat for $5.49.

Magic Kingdom Construction Updates
Merchant of Venus
The Merchant of Venus has finally reopened in Magic Kingdom, but not as a gift shop!
It is now open as a seating area with tables and chairs for guests to come in and take a load off in some AC.
New Photo Ops
There’s also a new Hocus Pocus photo op in Liberty Square.
It is made to look like Salem, where the movie takes place, and has made an appearance due to the upcoming release of Hocus Pocus 2 on Disney+.
There’s also a new Halloween/50th Anniversary photo op over by Tomorrowland, as well.
It has some gravestones on it, including one for Washington Irving, which is the author of the The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, which, of course, inspired the Disney movie of the same name.
Magic Kingdom Merchandise Updates
One of the biggest merchandise updates is, of course, all of the new Halloween merch! Let’s take a look at a few things we saw. First, we saw this shirt for $36.99 that says “My Spooky Place.”

What about other plushes? The Emporium also has some new Cuddleez, which are plushes that are flatter and therefore easier to cuddle. You can get two from The Nightmare Before Christmas, a Jack Skellington plush…

Frontier Trading Post
Over at Frontier Trading Post in Frontierland, we saw this Moana Magnet. It has Moana on it and says “Island Adventure.” The magnet is $14.99.
We also saw some new Funk Pops! The first is the Buzz Lightyear Funko. It shows Buzz wearing his full space suit from the movie Lightyear.
The other Funko Pop we saw was Izzy Hawthorne, who is also a character in Lightyear.
Both Funko Pops were priced at $15.49.
Memento Mori is the Haunted Mansion gift shop in Liberty Square. Here, we saw some Haunted Mansion pajamas! You can get the Haunted Mansion Pajama Set with shorts for $49.99.
If you’re interested in just the Haunted Mansion pajama pants, you can get those for $39.99.
The pajamas are striped and made to look like the outfits the maids and butlers wear at the Haunted Mansion itself.
Ye Olde Christmas Shoppe
Speaking of Haunted Mansion, at Ye Olde Christmas Shoppe, we saw this Hatbox Ghost ornament.
The ornament lights up and is $26.99.
Star Traders is where we found the Mickey Premium Bar Crocs! They are $54.99.
Looking for a new pin? Star Traders has this Minnie Mouse, Fifi, and Figaro pin for $12.99.
Fifi and Figaro are Minnie Mouse’s pets.
At Bonjour Gifts in Fantasyland, we saw this Iago Light-Up Figure.
It’s $80 and is a figure of Iago sitting on top of Jafar’s serpent staff.

The souvenir coin is $1 and the penny is provided!
