A NEW Restaurant, Returning Characters, and Other Disney News You Missed

It’s only August, but we’re going to be celebrating Halloween things in Disney Parks from now through October.

Halloween in Magic Kingdom

So it’s no surprise that we’ve reported a LOT of Halloween news this week, in addition to us attending the first Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party last week. But just in case you missed any other big Disney news, we’re giving you a quick rundown right here!

Halloween Happenings

We’ll just start with Halloween at Disney World! The first thing you might want to know is that the Mickey Pumpkin Wreaths have returned to Disney World. As you might know, these were replaced last year with the 50th anniversary Halloween Cinderella Carriage Wreaths, which also went up this year. But you’ll see some Mickey Pumpkin Wreaths, too.

What a Great Sight

Another big piece of Halloween news is that The Headless Horseman has returned to Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. We caught him making his way down Main Street, U.S.A., before the Boo-To-You parade! We didn’t get to see him during the first party because he doesn’t ride during rain and stormy weather, so we’re happy to see him again.

So cool!

We also got a chance to see Max Goof dressed up like Powerline at the party! Let’s just say that he really did “Stand Out.” Max shows up as sort of the pre-show for the parade, so be sure to line up early so you can see him! The best place to be in order to see Max is somewhere between Center Street and the Confectionery.

Hey Max!

If you’re looking for ideas of what to eat during the party, we ate all kinds of snacks to make sure we can make the best suggestions: here are our favorites!

Speaking of Halloween outfits, the Dapper Dans are in their fall outfits for the season. They’ve traded their summer colors for oranges, greens, and reds.

Dare we say they look very…dapper? Be sure to catch them the next time you’re visiting Magic Kingdom. They perform regularly throughout the day.

Disney World Returns and Reopenings

Things are returning to normal in Disney World, and we just had another gift shop reopen. Beverly Sunset Boutique in Disney’s Hollywood Studios has opened its doors once again. The store closed back in November 2021 due to supply issues, but it’s now open for people to visit.

We’ve also got some news about some returning EPCOT tours. The Behind the Seeds tour, EPCOT Seas Adventures – DiveQuest, and EPCOT Seas Adventures – Dolphins in Depth will all be returning starting on October 2nd, 2022. All three tours will be available to book starting August 22nd through the Disney World website or My Disney Experience app.

Another character meet and greet has also returned in Magic Kingdom. You can now meet Winnie The Pooh and Tigger again in Fantasyland near The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh. Be sure to check the My Disney Experience app for times.

Finally, the mouth-numbing Fuzzy Tauntaun drink has returned to Oga’s Cantina in both Disneyland and Disney World.

The new Fuzzy Tauntaun

The drink was pulled from menus earlier this year due to supply chain issues with the ingredient that creates that numbing effect, but Disney brought it back with a new recipe that still gives the same sensation, although it doesn’t look quite as fuzzy as before.

BoardWalk Deli Has Opened

BoardWalk Deli on Disney’s BoardWalk has officially opened. This spot, which used to be BoardWalk Bakery, has a menu that still includes some old BoardWalk Bakery favorites, along with some new sandwiches and sweets. You’ll find plenty to eat here for both breakfast and lunch/dinner.

BoardWalk Deli is open daily from 7AM to 10PM.

Disneyland Magic Key Renewals

Back in May, Disneyland paused all Magic Key sales, leaving current Magic Key Holders wondering if they would be able to renew their Magic Keys before they expired. However, Disney finally announced that Magic Key renewals would become available on August 18th — however, the program has been revamped a little, and prices have increased.

Welcome, Magic Key Holders

Now, renewals are available online, but many who were attempting to renew on August 18th met wait times of an hour or longer. These passes can sell out, so if you want to renew your Magic Key, we recommend doing so ASAP.
