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.
Epcot is in the middle of a multi-year transformation. The transformation includes new rides, a Play Pavilion, re-imagined park entrance, new restaurants, and a new nighttime spectacular. Our latest visit to Epcot included catching up on the progress of all of this construction.
We started our visit out in Future World and checking on the progress of the Guardians of the Galaxy ride.
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!
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!
As Epcot enters into the closing week of the Festival of the Arts (you have until February 25 to enjoy this Festival), they are already getting ready for the upcoming Flower and Garden Festival with some special landscaping!
One of the most popular pieces of landscaping for the Flower and Garden Festival is taking shape around the lakes between Future World and the World Showcase!
In addition to construction work in preparation for Illuminations’ replacement, we found new food, artistic face painting, character art, sakes, and merchandise!
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.
You should see our list of things we can’t wait for at Disney; the Skyliner, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, and the two new rides at Epcot, Guardians of the Galaxy and Ratatouille. At least we get the Skyliner and Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in 2019. Guardians of the Galaxy and Ratatouille are coming to Epcot in 2021. We checked on the construction progress of these two rides this week.
There are some big changes coming to Epcot. For instance, we just checked in on the Ratatouille ride and Skyliner Station construction in the park. But another highly anticipated addition is the Guardians of the Galaxy ride.
This new ride is replacing the former Universe of Energy attraction, and work is well underway transforming the existing building into the queue area while they add a new building to house the ride. We’ve been monitoring the progress of the transformation of the Universe of Energy building — especially since it’s conveniently located on the way to the Food and Wine Festival Center 😉 .
