Currently work is being done on The Yankee Trader shop to turn it into a Haunted Mansion gift shop. It would appear that the work will be much more intensive than we thought, as the shop will now not reopen until January 1, 2015. (The previous reopen date was October 1.) In addition, The Haunted Mansion will see a closure from December 1-19, furthering speculation that this new gift shop will house a place to also purchase an on-ride photo.
A new “test” is taking place right now at the Magic Kingdom’s Be Our Guest Restaurant. During this test, which is only taking place during the counter service lunch option, guests are given a paper FastPass, with a return time, indicating when you will be able to come back, order your meal, and dine at the restaurant. Keep in mind that there is a very limited availability of standby tickets. There has been no word on how long this test will take place. Dinner will remain as a table service location.
