What’s New in Magic Kingdom: Halloween Treats, Spooky Merchandise, and NEW Character Cavalcades!

We’re in Disney World’s flagship park today!

Magic Kingdom

Magic Kingdom tends to be an absolute delight thanks to its classic Disney-ness. Today, it’s even MORE of a delight as Halloween arrives in the park alongside some new merch and other updates. Without further ado, let’s check out everything new in Magic Kingdom today!

Magic Kingdom Food Updates

Various Locations

No surprise here, but we’re starting off with food updates! First off, you’ll be able to spot a ghoulish popcorn bucket available at Magic Kingdom Popcorn Carts around the park. That’s right! The Phineas Popcorn Bucket, inspired by the hitchhiking ghosts of the Haunted Mansion, has returned!

We also found some Halloween Cotton Candy available today in tangerine and grape from the Magic Kingdom Popcorn Carts.
