Watch carefully over the coming days and you may see people casting spells in Adventureland. Walt Disney Imagineering has recruited Cast Members to test a new interactive experience: Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom.
Early next year, Disney Guests become the heroes in this role-playing trading-card game as they try to defeat the Disney Villains who are working to take over the Magic Kingdom. Armed with magic spells in the form of special cards, players must search for the magic symbols that lead them to the animated villains’ hiding places. By casting different magical spell cards, these Sorcerers can do battle with Yzma, Kronk and other ne’er do wells hiding throughout the land. From fireballs to frantic frogs and cyclones, there are spells to bring down each and every villain, with a simple flick of the wrist.

After a long day of encounters with pirates and soaring through the sky with Dumbo and Peter Pan, any Disney guest needs a little boost! Fortunately, the Magic Kingdom offers plenty of delicious eats to help you recharge and we have listed some of the best places to find them! Check out my Top 5 Magic Kingdom Snack Spots!
1. Aloha Isle-Located in Adventureland, this spot is famous with Disney pros. Aloha Isle is home to the Dole Whip, pineapple flavored soft-serve! It’s amazing! My personal favorite is the Dole Whip Float, this tropical tasting soft serve served in pineapple juice! This snack spot also offers other sweet and refreshing snacks too, like a fresh pineapple spear or a Coke or Root Beer Float!
2. Casey’s Corner-This snack spot can be found at the end of Main Street U.S.A. and is a big favorite! You will feel like you’re at an old fashioned baseball game when you visit Casey’s and snack on delicious hot dogs, Cracker Jacks, and yummy corn dog nuggets. For the full Casey’s experience, enjoy your meal on the bleachers in the adjoining room and watch vintage, Disney sports themed cartoons!
3. Sleepy Hollow-This snack spot in Liberty Square offers some unique, but tasty, snacks. For example, at Sleepy Hollow, you can enjoy a Mickey Waffle, Ice Cream Sandwich, soup, iced coffee, and cappuccino! For a different snack selection, be sure to check out Sleepy Hollow!
4. Main Street Bakery-If you’re looking for variety, this is the place! Main Street Bakery has a vast selection of breakfast options, sandwiches, unique desserts, sweets, and a whole lot more! For example, stop in for some bread pudding, bear claws, or coffee!
5. Plaza Ice Cream Parlor-This ice cream parlor is also found on Main Street U.S.A. and is the destination for ice cream fans. This snack spot has a variety of scrumptious flavors; and a delicious, sweet and creamy treat is a sure cure after a long, hot day touring the parks!

What better way to celebrate today’s official reopening of Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room at Magic Kingdom Park than by taking a behind-the-scenes look at the attraction, courtesy of Walt Disney Imagineering (WDI).
In the pictures below, Imagineers Eric Jacobson, Dave Hoffman, Eric Swapp and others offer a look at what’s new at this Adventureland attraction and also share their thoughts on what has kept it a guest favorite over the years.
The attraction, which originally debuted at Magic Kingdom Park as The Tropical Serenade in 1971, was one of the first attractions to ever prominently feature Audio-Animatronics figures as the stars of the show. This latest reimagined version can be described as a tribute to the original show with enhancements that include re-mastered audio, new lighting and the debut of an elaborate new centerpiece.
Is it me, or have these birds gotten brighter and more beautiful since the last time we saw them? See for yourself in the gallery below.

When you look at Walt Disney World’s parks, hotels, and restaurants, there is one thing that really sets them apart from other parks, hotels, and restaurants that you might find in your hometown (or even at other theme parks). That one thing is theming. Disney is so good at transporting you to a different time, place, and environment, and if there’s one place in Disney World that I really think they excel with a theme, it’s Adventureland in the Magic Kingdom.
As soon as you walk over the bridge from the hub into Adventureland, you hear the music. The tropical beating drums and soothing sounds are both calming and exciting! You’re ready for an adventure!
The attractions in Adventureland are perfect for guests of all ages. Whether you’re drawn to the classics like The Jungle Cruise and Pirates of the Caribbean or up for a spin on the Magic Carpets of Aladdin, there’s something for the whole family to enjoy. The Swiss Family Tree House offers beautiful views of Adventureland (and Cinderella’s Castle!) Another classic, the Enchanted Tiki Room, is currently being refurbished, but it’s a great place to rest your feet and and enjoy a show.
Adventureland is also the home of one of Walt Disney World’s most coveted treats — the Dole Whip. It is the perfect snack on a hot Florida afternoon. If you’ve never stopped by Aloha Isle for your Dole Whip, make it a must-do on your next trip!
Shops in Adventureland have great gifts, souveniers, and clothing. Unlike a lot of other stores around Disney World, these shops have unique offerings and are open to the outdoors, which makes them convenient for browsing. Stroll through the stores and you’ll see that the merchandise definitely fits the “land.”
Next time you’re in Adventureland, take a moment to immerse yourself in the theme. If you let yourself get into it, you might just forget you’re in Central Florida!
