What’s New in Disney World Hotels: We Met Some RARE Characters!

Things are changing around Disney World every day and we do our best to keep you updated on all of it!


Wilderness Lodge

Between new restaurant menus, new attractions, and all the latest merch drops — there’s a lot going on all the time! If you’re heading to Disney World soon or just like being in the know, we’ve got you covered. It’s time for another look at what’s new at Disney World Resort hotels!

Yacht Club Merchandise Updates


Don’t let the start of September bum you out that summer is coming to an end — get your doggo (or cat!) a cute lil’ bandana that’ll make you smile every time you look at them.


Chill out.

You can get the Chill Out Pet Bandana for $12.99.

BoardWalk Inn General Updates

The former ESPN Club has been all but erased from BoardWalk history to make way for a NEW restaurant and bakery — the Cake Bake Shop by Gwendolyn Rogers. This new spot is set to open sometime in 2023, though a specific date has not been announced just yet.


Cake Bake Shop updates

This isn’t the first Cake Bake Shop to exist, and we recently checked out one of the other locations. You can read all about that and what we might be able to expect from the BoardWalk location at the link below!

Rep your love of Disney’s BoardWalk — the Showplace of the Shore — with this new ringer tee!


New shirt!

We love the retro designs and depictions of some BoardWalk icons! Get the shirt for $36.99.

Wilderness Lodge General Updates

Guess who we spotted on a recent visit to the Wilderness Lodge?! There were quite a few characters out and about greeting and interacting with guests, like Max Goof (unfortunately not in his Powerline Halloween costume)…

King Louie, and more! Disney will occasionally have characters interacting with guests in less popular areas as part of Cast Member training, so you never know who you might run into while you’re walking around Disney World hotels!
