Epcot is a busy park these days! Each visit finds construction progress, menu updates, and new must-have merchandise! See what we found this week!
We started our visit out checking on the progress of the Guardians of the Galaxy attraction.
It’s time to make another stop into Disney’s Hollywood Studios where construction continues in earnest on three BIG projects! Plus we’ve got a little merchandise and menu update! Come along with us, superstars!
There’s progress on construction right at the entrance to Disney’s Hollywood Studios, but there’s a bit of debate about what this will be.
The cast member we spoke to this week said it’s extra bag check space in anticipation of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. [Read more…]
Epcot is busy getting ready for the Flower and Garden Festival to start next week, but that isn’t all that is happening! We found so many changes, lots of new merchandise, the return of a hidden gem, and as always lots of construction progress!
We didn’t let a rainy day spoil our time in Epcot — see everything that’s new here!
Hello from Hollywood Studios where we are on the lookout for Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge construction progress, Skyliner System gondola testing, new shakes, new eats, new merchandise, and Disney Snacks as artwork!!
We are so excited and anxious for the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge this fall that no visit to Hollywood Studios is complete without a peek over the “Toy Story Land wall” to see if we can spot any progress!
As Epcot’s Festival of the Arts prepares to close on February 25 signs the Flower and Garden Festival opening on March 6 are popping up! Our latest visit to Epcot saw some Flower and Garden food booths and topiaries being set up. But, that isn’t all, we also saw some construction progress, new merchandise, and some awesome chalk art!
We’ll start out with some Festival of the Arts chalk art — and deals!
There are some brand new construction walls in Disney World’s Hollywood Studios in the the current Star Wars, Grand Avenue, and Commissary Lane intersection areas.
The walls run from the area around the “Star Wars Bathrooms” across from Star Tours all the way around to Commissary Lane across from BaseLine Tap House.
There’s so much going on in Epcot! They are getting ready for the Festival of the Arts to open next week, adding new rides, attractions, restaurants, and even more. This visit was jam-packed with updates!
Let’s dive into all of the updates and start in Future World at one of our first stops on every visit — Fountain View for Coffee and Cupcakes!
There’s a lot going on in Epcot! World Showcase is getting ready for a new nighttime show after IllumiNations ends, Japan is welcoming a new table-service restaurant, France is adding a Ratatouille Ride and Beauty and the Beast attraction, and a Guardians of the Galaxy ride is coming to Future World. That means lots of construction, construction walls, scrims, and more around the park. We checked on the progress of all of these projects on our latest visit to the park.
With one of the more colorful construction walls in the park — the Guardians of the Galaxy ride is coming along with the conversion of the former Universe of Energy building into the queue building for the new ride.
Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Cafe in Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom is a guest favorite. It’s here you’ll find burgers, chicken, and the occasional limited time offering (like these funky Galaxy Fries and the lauded Pork Belly Burger)! But the popular quick service spot is currently undergoing a refurbishment — partially.
At present, construction walls are up around Bay 2, where you’d typically find a selection of burgers, sandwiches, and salads. The walls extend through the central seating area (the largest section of seating in the restaurant), including around the stage where diners would normally spot Sonny Eclipse.
If you’re anything like us, you’re anxiously seeking details about Galaxy’s Edge at Walt Disney World’s Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Scheduled to open in the fall of 2019, work continues in earnest… at least as much as we can see.
On a visit to the park yesterday, we were able to capture a little more detail of this building that’s being constructed adjacent to Tatooine Traders.
Wrapping is down on this project (it was there just last week), so we can see a lot more detail, like the green tile roof and linear, simple overall design.
