Magic Kingdom

Magic Kingdom has been quite the busy place, with Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, new spooky snacks, and new Minnie ears. Let’s take a look at everything that’s NEW in Magic Kingdom!

Magic Kingdom Food Updates

Main Street Confectionery

At Main Street Confectionery we found some Apple Cider Drink Mixes all themed for Halloween! There are 3 included in the set, each with a different Disney character design and slightly different flavor.


So Cute!

This is a special sweet offering we’ve already seen at Disneyland this year, and it’s one that usually makes its way to Disney World each Halloween. You can get it for $14.99.

Magic Kingdom Construction Updates


In terms of construction updates, we’ve seen quite a bit of progress made on the TRON attraction coming to Tomorrowland.


Things Are Coming Along!

There now appear to be some planter-like structures being filled with metal rods.


We Can’t Wait to See What Happens

Thus far, an opening date for the ride has not yet been announced, but we have seen testing taking place and things really seem to be coming together. Hopefully the upcoming D23 Expo gives us some important updates!

Main Street, U.S.A.

On Main Street, U.S.A. we stumbled upon some construction taking place.



There was a sort-of plate structure placed near the end of Main Street, U.S.A. with yellow barriers around it. It’s a good reminder that while you’ll want to be looking up and around you while in the parks, don’t forget to look DOWN too or you might be thrown off by some uneven surfaces.

Magic Kingdom Merchandise Updates


At the Emporium, we found quite a few fun items including a Nightmare Before Christmas crossbody bag for $70


Simply Meant to Be!

…a 50th Anniversary pet shirt for $29.99


Get Your Pets in on the Fun!

…the Haunted Mansion Bridal Ears for $29.99


They Even Have a Veil!

…some Haunted Mansion ears that even feature a top hat for $29.99


Hello Beautiful!

…a Daisy Duck tumbler cup for $22.99


Perfect in Pink

…and a Baby Yoda (Grogu) pumpkin pin for $9.99. (It matches a little bowl that was also released for Halloween.)


We See You!

But wait, there’s MORE merchandise awaiting us.

Uptown Jewelers

At Uptown Jewelers, we found what very well might be the most GORGEOUS pair of Minnie Ears we’ve ever seen.


Vera Wang Ears

These are designer ears from Vera Wang and they come with a BIG price tag. If you want to pick these up, get ready to shell out $600!!

Ye Olde Christmas Shoppe

Next, we stopped by Ye Olde Christmas Shoppe and found…4th of July Crocs?



We had already seen these Crocs released online, but it seems like they arrived at Disney World a little late to the party. If every day is a good day to wear Americana Crocs for you, then you can pick these up for $64.99.

P.S. They’re still available online too! Get them here!

Magic Kingdom General Updates

In terms of more general updates, we just had to share a spectacular character we said “hi” to during one of our recent trips — Jack Sparrow! He’s not “new” to the park, but we just couldn’t help but share a photo of this mischievous pirate! Don’t forget to look for him over in Adventureland.


Where Are You Off To?!

And finally, we end this post with some exciting news! After an initial soft opening, Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique is now fully open in Magic Kingdom!


It’s OPEN!

You can again take your little ones to get all dressed up like some of their favorite princesses.
