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 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!
Epcot is busy with the International Festival of the Arts starting this Friday — we’ll be reporting live from opening day — but we still found new must-have food-themed merchandise being added to the shops as well as new drinks, sweet eats, teas, and construction progress — we’ve got it all covered!
Let’s jump in with that brand new space-themed restaurant near Mission: Space opening in 2020!
The currently posted name for the restaurant is Space 220, and applicants are informed that “Like in the real International Space Station, represent your country in this restaurant. We will recruit European candidates [whose] role will be to make the guests feel like they are in space.”
Note that the posting says that the new restaurant will be “located next to the attraction Mission to Mars.” However, later it clarifies that “new restaurant will be located between Mission Space and Test [Track] at EPCOT.” [Read more…]
The location has been revealed for the Space-themed restaurant coming to Epcot!
We already knew that this restaurant will offer an immersive dining experience among the stars which will offer guests views “from high above Earth.” And that it will be operated by the Patina Restaurant Group (known also in Epcot for Via Napoli and Tutto Italia). Additionally, it was known that the restaurant would be adjacent to the Mission: SPACE attraction.
But where, exactly? Well, now we know! [Read more…]
