Happy belated Birthday, EPCOT! In honor of the special day, we took a stroll around the park to see what was new!
Let’s check out all things new in food, construction, and merch!
EPCOT Food Updates
When we wandered by the China Booth, we noticed there was a new beer on the menu, the Tsingtao Lager. So we tried it out, and, honestly, thought it tasted mostly like a Sam Adams. But hey, if that’s your thing, you might like it!
It’s $4.75 for 6 ounces and $8.50 for 12 ounces.
Flavors From Fire
This year’s booth is hosted by the NFL on ESPN. So we noticed some new signage about the upcoming NFL season.
We also spotted a fun sign with each team’s favorite food!
The Donut Box
We snapped some photos of The Donut Box right before it opened. There were plenty of markers for lines and social distancing.
Block and Hans
We also saw it advertised on a placard!
For $10.75, you get tastings of Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale, Dogfish Head 60 Minute IPA, Orlando Brewing Blonde Ale, and Angry Orchard Rosé Cider. HUZZAH!
La Cava del Tequila
We saw a seriously long line for La Cava del Tequila at the Mexico Pavilion. We get it — it’s hot out, and a cold margarita is a good cure for the Florida heat and humidity!
L’Artisan des Glaces
Kringla Bakeri og Kafe
We noticed that a few food locations had put up menu boards suggesting other places to go for food and drinks. At Kringla Bakeri og Kafe, the sign reminded guests that they can also get School Bread at the cart just outside the Norway Pavilion Monday through Friday.
At the moment, Kringla Bakeri og Kafe will only be open on weekends. So it’s good to know we can get that School Bread fix when it’s closed, too!
Yorkshire County Fish Shop
Epcot Merchandise Updates
We spotted a few new merch items at Mouse Gear, including this super cute Minnie Mouse Denim Jacket for $69.99. It’s got little Minnie faces all over it!
We also spotted this really nice Mickey Blanket with a chevron and Mickey ears pattern. This blanket is $74.99.
We went NUTS over the new Halloween Phone Cases we found at Magic Kingdom, especially the Mickey Sugar Rush case! Now they’re available at EPCOT! These cases are $29.99 each.
We also spotted some magnets we previously saw at Magic Kingdom. We love this Trick and Treat Magnet because why trick OR treat, when you can do both?
We also saw the Mickey Jack O’Lantern Magnet! The magnets are $14.99 each.
We saw some awesome character spatulas at Disney Springs, but now they’ve arrived at EPCOT. And they are TOO CUTE. Check out this Jaq and Gus Spatula Set.
There’s a Toy Story Spatula Set, too, with Rex and an Alien!
These sets are $19.99 each. We love fun kitchen gear!
So maybe it’s warm here in Florida, but the rest of the country is cooling down, so someone is bound to need this Child’s Fuzzy Spirit Jersey for $54.99. And IT REALLY IS SO FUZZY. The front has a Mouse Ears logo on it.
The back says, “Walt Disney World.” Also, why can’t we get this for adults?
We’ve been seeing a lot of Halloween sales pop up all over the place, including at Mouse Gear. For a limited time, you can get select Halloween and Nightmare Before Christmas mugs for $15.00.
Even better, though? HALLOWEEN CANDY IS ON SALE for buy one, get one free!
Now THAT’S what we’re talking about!
EPCOT Attractions Updates
Frozen Ever After
We noticed some new signage at the Frozen Ever After attraction to help with crowds.
The Test Track queue was the shortest we’ve seen recently. They even removed the stanchions they previously had up, leaving only tape on the ground to guide guests.
Well, that’s it for our celebration of EPCOT’s birthday, but we’ll be back soon to share all the updates we find!
