How the HECK is March already halfway over?! With so many new announcements at Disney World, time really flies! One minute we’re welcoming the Flower & Garden Festival to EPCOT, and the next we’re checking out the new Space 220 menu. There are lots of changes happening in the parks and resorts right now and we never know what we might find around the corner!
Whether you’re here for the food updates or want to check out the latest merchandise, we’re here to share ALL the updates from Disney World. Let’s take a look at what we found in the Magic Kingdom this week!
Magic Kingdom Entertainment Updates
The beloved Dapper Dans are performing on Main Street, USA once again! Previously, you could catch them up on the Main Street Train Station, but it’s nice to be able to see them back on the ground.
You may also see them performing on the Main Street trolley car. Keep your eyes (and ears) out for some classic show tunes — the Dapper Dans are surely nearby! For a full list of showtimes, you can check out our handy post here or check the My Disney Experience app.
