If you’ve been following DFB, you already know that it’s happened VERY recently on Magic Kingdom.
But just in case you missed some of the updates, we will look at everything that has changed in this park in recent days! Let’s look at the novelties of food, merchandise, construction, and the crowds of the Magical Kingdom.
Most of our novelties include new products and decorations, but we also take a look at the food.
Magic Kingdom Power Update
The back water treatment was new at Sunshine Tree Terrace in Adventureland a couple of months ago, in honor of the jungle trip updates and the new movie.
This delicacy is still available in Sunshine Tree Terrace, but is not currently available in Mobile Order. If you’re hoping to get a refreshing (and very sweet) gift to celebrate the eighth wonder of the world, don’t be afraid. You can order it in person (in the app only) $ 6.29. And you can order it in a cup instead of as a float.
Near the entrance to Adventureland, the Spring Roll cart remains closed. This site has been closed for over a week and we have not heard any news about when it could return.
We look forward to returning to the delicious Cheeseburger and Buffalo Chicken Spring Rolls, so we’ll let you know as soon as we see it back.
Magic Kingdom merchandise update
Now we come to the big news. The Magic Kingdom got over 100 new articles yesterday, most with a 50th anniversary theme. We found all the products in the Emporium on Main Street, USA
There were THREE new Minnie Ears couples, all celebrating Disney World’s 50th anniversary. The white and gold pair are $ 34.99, and light up!
A pair was from Loungefly, with Disney characters dressed in 50th birthday dresses for all ears and a bright golden bow in the center. This set is $ 39.99.
Minnie’s third ears were brightly colored EARidescents, with a large gold bow covered with rhinestones in the center. This couple is $ 39.99 too.
We also found a new one War Starbucks EARidescent in the Emporium, which was $ 39.99.
The cup had a “50th” logo on the front with Cinderella Castle within the “0.” There was tons of new merchandise, including pins, t-shirts, jewelry and much, much more. You can find it all at Emporium and Magic Kingdom.
See ALL 100 NEW 50th Anniversary Merchandise Pieces here.
But that’s not the whole new product of the Emporium. Now let’s change the celebration and look at the Halloween items. The ears of Minnie Night Before Christmas arrived at Disney World last week and they sell out quickly.
You can get them at the Emporium by $ 39.99, but you will want to hurry!
If your Halloween celebrations include lots of hot drinks like apple cider and hot cocoa, we’ve found the perfect cup for the spooky season. There is something new Abracadabra tax at the Emporium.
This glowing cup in the dark has decorations of Abracadabra and a large image of Binx on the back. You can already get it for $ 19.99.
Along the way to Uptown Jewelers, we came across some amazing popcorn-themed Minnie ears. We’ve seen them at Disneyland before and also admired the bespoke backpack. But now you can get them Minnie ears with popcorn aroma at Disney World too!
The ears are translucent and full of pieces of popcorn, and the bow has popcorn bucket decorations everywhere. You can get them now at High city jewelry stores per $ 39.99. These will also be available at the Emporium, but that gift shop was already sold out when we went there. Cast members told us they were expecting a replacement soon.
While we were at Uptown Jewelers, we also saw a new one Mickey Pandora pumpkin charm. This charm has a Mickey Jack-O-Lantern on one side and “BOO” written on the other.
You can get the little Mickey pumpkin charm High city jewelry stores now for 55 USD.
Speaking of stylish shops on Main Street, USA, we stopped at Crystal Arts and saw the Tiara of the 50th anniversary on display. This tiara has Mickey ears and the 50th anniversary logo as well VERY bright tan. It is available for prior reservation $ 85.
You can reserve this tiara to have delivered from mid to late November for a shipping cost of $ 8.50, or you can book it at the Disney Springs Crystal Arts location in mid-November. Cast members have said there won’t be a lot of availability you should book it now if you want one! The only way to get it is at Disney World and make a reservation in advance.
More on Tomorrowland at Star traders, we found a new phone case $ 29.99 this is also perfect for the next spooky season.
The case has small images of Mickey and Minnie Jack-O-Lanterns, ghosts, candies and more. Also onet Star traders in Tomorrowland, we saw a new long sleeve Halloween t-shirt with words like “scream,” “boo,” and “scare” written all over with graffiti lettering.
You can get this t-shirt for $ 42.99. There was also a t-shirt that said, “I’m here to enjoy the sweets” with images of Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck and Goofy that look terrifying. This t-shirt was $ 36.99.
And there was one more piece of Halloween clothing at Star Traders that we saw: a Minnie Mouse “Haunt You Later” Sweatshirt.
You can already get this sweatshirt for $ 69.99. Near these new Halloween items, we saw some black shoes that went perfectly with another new Halloween item we saw.
Because we found them Halloween coconut pins! These come with five pins, including some spooky Disney snacks.
They are $ 17.99 a Star Traders at Disney’s Magic Kingdom.
Magic Kingdom build update
The mountains of new products were not the only updates to the 50th anniversary: we also saw new banners at Cinderella Castle.
These banners have the logo number 50 on a pretty EARidescent background and some of them include work of art by famous Disney artist Mary Blair.
You will find images of his conceptual art for Disney Cinderella on the exterior banners and simple decorative banners closest to the castle.
While you’re close to the castle, you can also take a look at the new one Dedication plate of cast members among the statues of golden characters of Mickey and Minnie Mouse.
Disney dedicated these statues to all cast members, past, present and future. But the 50 decorations don’t stop there! Outside the main entrance, opposite Main Street Rail Station, you can find Mickey and Minnie Mouse topiaries with a great “50th” birthday cake between them.
This will be one of the first 50th anniversary decorations you’ll see when you head to the Magic Kingdom, but it definitely won’t be the last.
We also found more signs of Lightning Lane in the Magic Kingdom, including a a Seven dwarf mine train…
… i pirates of the caribbean.
These lanes will be the new “FastPass” lanes when Genie + and Pay-Per-Ride start in the parks. The new Genie + and Pay-Per-Ride system is supposed to start at Disney World this fall, though Disney has not announced exactly when they will start.
Speaking of Splash Mountain, all the scaffolding we’ve seen over the last few weeks has been removed from the trip.
It was probably used for some repainted or routine maintenance on the way, but now it’s gone and Splash looks better than ever.
At the Emporium, you may notice it some goods have been moving. The old Pin wall now contains some home decor items.
You will find the pines in front of the cash registers towards the back of the store.
The Games and Stationery area was replaced by more home decor products, and you will find games and stationery distributed throughout the store.
At the Christmas Shoppe, you will find some Christmas trees to decorate them, with ornaments hanging from their branches as a sample.
The display case that had custom ornaments is now gone and has been replaced by a customization counter.

We stopped to walk around some Magic Kingdom to see how long the waiting times were. We saw one Wait 10 minutes a Buzz Lightyear Space Ranger Spin …
… a Wait 5 minutes and Dumbo …
… ia Wait 50 minutes on the Seven Dwarfs mine train.
That’s all for our Magic Kingdom update. Follow DFB and we’ll keep you posted on all the news from Disney World.
