Hey, everyone, we’re back at Epcot again to check out what’s happening in the park!
We’re checking out the construction on a certain smokehouse and some new merch to add to our ever-growing collection. Let’s get started!
Epcot Construction Update
The construction on the facade of Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind continues. Scaffolding has gone up and it looks like they might be doing some solar panel work on the roof of the building.
The Taste Track booth has been spotted peeking its head above the walls. This on-again/off-again stall should be serving classic burgers and fries when it opens. Disney is doing this to help make up for the closing of Electric Umbrella. We don’t know when this, but we will be sure to let you know as soon as it does!
Character Meet & Greets
Goofy has now moved into the A/C at the temporary Character Spot location at Innoventions West. You can currently meet Goofy and Pluto in this location throughout the day. Daisy is now standing outside where the Goofster used to be and is ready to meet her fans.
Festival of the Arts Chalk Painting
While we made our way around the park, we spotted this amazing 3D chalk art display that they’ve set up for the Festival of the Arts. If you position yourself just right, you can hold Remy from Ratatouille in your hands!
We are anxiously awaiting the opening of the Regal Eagle Smokehouse in the American pavilion (we wants the BBQ) and Disney keeps teasing us with more construction progress. It looks like they may be installing a few beer taps outside. Let us in, Regal Eagle, let us in!
Epcot Merchandise Update
There’s a couple of new windbreakers for those rare chilly Florida days at Mouse Gear right now. You can pick the adorable Lady and the Tramp design as they eat their spaghetti dinner (gotta carb up) for $49.99.
This Skyliner windbreaker might give it a run for its money though! You can grab this one for $49.99 as well.
If you’re looking for new MagicBand swag (let’s be honest, we can never get enough MagicBands), there’s a new Pinocchio MagicBand that features Pinocchio, Geppetto, Jiminy Cricket, and the Blue Fairy for $24.99.
For those of us who can’t function without our caffeine, this Mushu mug for $22.99 should help jump-start our mornings. Even Cri-Kee’s along for the ride!
Everybody’s got a happy place, that’s how the song goes, right? Our happy place is the Disney parks and now we can let everyone know with this new-to-us shimmery cap for $27.99.
That’s going to do it for this trip to see what’s new in Epcot. Come back again real soon so you can stay up to date for your next vacation!
