New and upcoming things to do at Walt Disney World in late October and November 2014



New and upcoming things to do at Walt Disney World

1. Visit the Memento Mori shop next to the Haunted Mansion at the Magic Kingdom

The Haunted Mansion now offers its own shop with merchandise and a photo experience that is exclusive to the Magic Kingdom.  It’s been so popular that they require a line to form to enter the shop.  There’s a lot of fun merch and the photo op allows each guest to become a ghost for $19.95 + tax.  This photo experience isn’t included with any Photopass or Memory Maker package.

2. Canada Lumberjack Show


The Canada Lumberjack show is a demonstration of traditional lumberjacking abilities.  It features chopping, sawing, axe throwing and other wood cutting abilities.  It’s located on the Mill Stage between Canada and the United Kingdom.  You can find their schedule here.

3.  Sbandieratori Di Sansepolcro Flags

Epcot is now offering a flag waving and tossing act that has a really long name.  I’m not sure any guest will request them by name, but they offer shows in Epcot.  They feature drummers, trumpeters and flag wavers.  Their schedule is here on the blog under Entertainment above.

4. Meet Baymax and Hiro at Hollywood Studios

BGS697042No official date has been announced at this time, but we expect Baymax and Hiro from Disney’s new movie Big Hero 6 to begin appearing in early to mid-November 2014.  They will assume the location that has been held by Wreck-it Ralph and Vanellope inside the Magic of Disney Animation area.  Ralph and Vanellope should continue to appear in Mickey’s Boo to You Parade and are expected to appear in Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade as well, but will cease to offer meet and greets.

5.  A Frozen Holiday Wish

Cinderella’s Holiday Wish is being changed to make use of the characters from Disney’s hit movie Frozen.  Elsa and Olaf will now take over for Cinderella and the Fairy Godmother at the Magic Kingdom’s castle lighting Christmas show.  The new show will begin November 5 and run to the New Year.

6.  Changes coming to Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade

Frozen Summer of Fun Live Parade featuring Anna Elsa and Kristoff

Expect Anna, Elsa and Kristoff (possibly Olaf?) to begin appearing in the parade that is offered during Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party.  The parade is usually offered to regular park guests for free beginning December 20, 2014 as well as the other elements of the Christmas Party (but not the special meet and greets).

7.  Jingle Cruise at the Magic Kingdom

The Jingle Cruise holiday overlay is expected to return for a second year to the Magic Kingdom.  They add some Christmas decorations to the attraction and the skippers tell special Christmas jokes.

  1. Hey Kenny, I’m sure you already know but the Christmas Day Parade’s name has been changed to the Frozen Christmas Celebration Parade. A lot of folks on Facebook are angry from what I’ve seen. I’m honestly not surprised. What are your thoughts? If you’re going to be able to go this year, will you regardless of the name change?

    • Yeh, I posted that on my Facebook page the day it happened. It’s kind of silly, but they change the name often and it’s basically a 2 hour commercial anyway. I’ll go to check it out.

  2. Hi, I have your app and I love it! We’re going to Disney tomorrow. We have a cast member hook up, so I was unable to pre-book FP+ without an actual ticket. Do you think if we get to DHS upon opening we will be able to get to see the Frozen Sing Along without FP+ or a major wait time? I’m traveling with a toddler, who really just wants to hug the classic characters, but this is the one ‘must do’ she’d adore. Thanks!

  3. I know they didn’t announce the Villians’ Soiree until close to the first party, but I was hoping they’d release the information for this one sooner. We leave November 1!

  4. Any updates on a special premium event of some kind at MVMCP? Ive read its rumoured but with just over 2 weeks until they start im beginning to lose hope…..
