We’ll return to Magic Kingdom to check in on some things unrelated to theme park touring. Unfortunately, our favorite fern has been replaced by this sign welcoming us to Magic Kingdom at the Express Monorail platform and unintentionally causing ever more slowdowns as people stop to snap a pic with their iPad.
Heil Triton across from Ariel’s Grotto has a name.
We might not have new attractions but we have lots of new details.
New fountain beverage pricing brings the size of a regular up 30 cents, while the size of the large remains the same. Don’t quote me, but both sizes may hold less liquid now.
I have to draw the line on “please don’t make me eat that” somewhere. And I think that has to be ranch dressing on a Disney hot dog.
Additional canned/bottled beverages available at Prince Eric’s.
I would prefer a Dodgy Tea for half the price.
Props to Disney for sending the OCD into a psychosis.
Things have improved in The Hub area.
But views are (currently) outstanding looking straight out at the waterfalls in the distance on this side.
Outside the Plaza.
Where the inflatable dams remain.
What an unedited pic with a $3000 camera and $1500 lens looks like.
15 seconds later in Adobe Lightroom.
It would be interesting to experience Big Thunder Mountain Railroad in the opposite direction.
It may help the uneasy to know that the “big drop” on Splash is near the very end with these vultures preceding the ascension.
Pass the camera to the person on the left.
Those corn nuggets dusted with powdered sugar are off-again at Golden Oak Outpost across from Pecos Bill on the Adventureland side.
Walls remain at Enchanted Tiki Room while the attraction continues to operate.
Another scrim up in Adventureland.
There has to be some directive that dictates a guest must never be able to turn 360 degrees without seeing a MagicBand display. It wouldn’t surprise me if vending machines started popping up in bathrooms.
The unique glass and tableware at Bonjour Gifts has been replaced by cheap plastic toys from the Disney Store up front.
Though it’s still available (for now) in the back corner.
Disney has installed a five-item limit per transaction on all Frozen merchandise. These Anna and Elsa dolls were making a rare appearance.
This looks like a new version of the Jasmine dress to me. Like the others, it features fewer accoutrements and cheaper fabric.
What is this 2013.
