Disney has announced that the Main Street Confectionary in the Magic Kingdom will be getting an expansion and overhaul that will coincide with Walt Disney World’s 50th Anniversary.

As such, the Main Street Confectionary and The Chapeau will both close on March 29th.

Here’s more from the Disney Parks Blog

“To bring these concepts to life, both Main Street Confectionery and The Chapeau will close for refurbishment later this month. Along with that, some of the merchandise and goodies will be shifting to other spots in the park.

Now don’t worry, you’ll still have plenty of options to satisfy your sweet tooth once work to transform the locations kicks off on March 29. Many of the treats from Main Street Confectionery will be available at Emporium and Main Street Cinema during the closure. And have no worries about where to find your favorite Disney hats, including the must-have Mickey Mouse ears. Those will be just across the street at Box Office Gifts, at the Town Square Theater.

Finally, if you’re looking for collectibles and artwork, Bonjour! Village Gifts will be the new go-to spot.”

Disney is gearing up for its 50th Anniversary celebration, called “The World’s Most Magical Celebration.” While no where what was initially planned due to the pandemic, it’s clear that the company still intends to celebrate with more and more announcements made weekly.
