In the hub by Cinderella Castle, when we walked by a 50th anniversary statue, our MagicBand+ would light up and vibrate. We found that you will not be able to get close to the statues during the Festival of Fantasy Parade because this area is for reserved viewing.

On our way out of Magic Kingdom we found a new scented Mickey Premium Bar ear headband in the Emporium. We’ve been noticing that not all the merchandise is out when you walk through the shops in the morning. Merchandise has been appearing later in the day.
