While walking around the park we heard a train whistle so we made our way to Storybook Circus Station is Fantasyland to investigate.

We spotted the Roy O. Disney engine doing some testing on the train tracks by the Storybook Circus Station. Just as soon as it came out it went right back out of view. We were happy to see the testing as this is a sign that it may be opening soon!

We also spotted TRON Lightcycle / Run doing testing. While we didn’t spot any actual riders, we did notice that the vehicles were running every minute.

The Ghost Host ornament has materialized in Memento Mori. This ornament had some controversy surrounding it as Disney confused the Ghost Host for Master Gracey on Shop Disney. Disney has since corrected their error and relabeled the ornament to reflect the Ghost Host.

A Haunted Mansion jacket was also available in World of Disney. The jacket is puffer and fleece material and features many of the characters from The Haunted Mansion. The thought of wearing this jacket in this heat is enough to scare us away, but this would be the perfect jacket when the temperatures drop!
