Epcot’s International Festival of the Holidays is in full swing. Guests are sipping hot cocoa, enjoying cultural storytellers in the World Showcase, and flocking to see the Candlelight Processional each night.
With everything at Epcot moving merrily along this holiday season, you might not think we’d have anything new to tell you about this week. But guess what? We do! Read on to hear all about turkey legs, Mickey and Minnie tea infusers, construction updates, and holiday sweets!
What’s New in Future World
Let’s start with the current view of construction for the Guardians of the Galaxy coaster. Gotta love that galaxy-themed construction wall!
This Future World pretzel cart has started serving Turkey Legs!
But don’t worry, pretzel fans: Mickey Pretzels are still available, too!
Over in The Land Pavilion, we spotted lots of little updates at Sunshine Seasons. First: the Deep Dish Pizza now comes with a side of Pasta Salad instead of Caesar Salad.
They’ve got new seasonal soup flavors, too!
On the day were visited, there were two soups to choose from.
Would you pick Vegan Lentil or Chicken Pot Pie?
We also saw this Jack Fruit Vegan Wrap in the grab-and-go area for the first time.
Craving something sweet? Don’t worry; Sunshine Seasons has you covered! How about this Christmas Sugar Cookie?
There’s also a pretty Presents Holiday Cupcake… and you’ll never guess what’s inside of these tiny gifts!
The classic Mickey Oreo Cheesecake is wearing a Santa outfit for the holidays!
Annnnd don’t the sprinkles add the perfect amount of green to this Strawberry Shortcake?
What’s New in the World Showcase
There’s construction happening in the World Showcase Lagoon! Could this have to do with the new nighttime spectacular coming to Epcot in 2019?
Over in The American Adventure Pavilion, Block and Hans has added a beer flight.
More construction is going on over in the France Pavilion. We think this is most likely for Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure!
What’s New with Merchandise at Epcot
‘Tis the season to enjoy a hot cup of tea, right? Well, perfect timing: we noticed these adorable Mickey and Minnie tea infusers for the first time this week.
The Disney Parks Walkers Shortbread Rounds have new packaging, too!
Plaid-clad Mickey, Minnie, and Pluto… They’re all SO CUTE!
Here’s a peek at the back:
Earlier this week, select holiday items were on sale throughout Walt Disney World, including these fun Chip and Dale mugs.
And that’s everything new we spotted at Epcot this week!
