It’s been a busy week in Epcot! We found food updates, construction, completed refurbs, new rides and restaurants, plus more new merch! Join us at Epcot to see what we found!
But first, don’t forget…there’s less than a month left in the Food and Wine Festival — our very favorite thing in Epcot! Be sure to check this year’s festival out before it ends!
Guardians of the Galaxy Construction
The Universe of Energy is transforming before our eyes as it becomes the queue building for the new Guardians of the Galaxy ride! Check out all of the photos and the update from this week here.
Ratatouille Ride and Skyliner Construction Progress
Over in France and the International Gateway areas there’s a lot going on. They are adding the new Ratatouille ride behind the France Pavilion and building the new Skyliner Station for Epcot in the International Gateway area. Check out all of the photos and the update from this week.
Epcot Construction Update
We also collected updates on the progress of the new Signature Table-Service Restaurant in Japan, Puffin’s Roost in Norway, and Germany’s Bier cart refurbishment. Check out all of the photos and the updates from this week.
Food and Beverage Updates Around the World Showcase
Hard seltzer is the new hard soda! In the American Adventure Pavilion, they have added White Claw Black Cherry Hard Seltzer to the Ice Cream and Beverage Cart in the pavilion.
After the Tire Jack-o-Lantern Straw made it’s journey from DCA Cars Land to Animal Kingdom, then Hollywood Studios, it is now also available in Epcot in the America Pavilion! Pick this spooky straw up at Liberty Inn the next time you are there.
Italy’s Pop-Up Wine Bar has returned! This first showed up last year but then disappeared. We’ll see if this time it stays longer!
Currently, the specialty drink at the Pop-Up Wine Bar is a Bellini al Melograno.

The Tea Caddy in the UK Pavilion is ready for winter nights with an assortment of Twinings Winter Blends teas.
