Hello world travelers! We took a trip to EPCOT to see what’s been going on around the park!
Last time, we saw more construction walls and a few new food items! Let’s take a look at what’s new in food, construction, and merchandise!
EPCOT Food Updates
First up, we spotted the Frozen Elephant drink at the African Outpost in World Showcase!
This drink consists of frozen Coca-Cola and Amarula Cream Liquor. This is currently not shown on the menu, but when we ordered it rang up under the name Frozen Elephant. You can pick up his refreshing drink for $15!
Block & Hans
Over at Block and Hans in the American Adventure pavilion, we spotted the Cigar City Jai Alai!
This drink was not listed on the menu but they were serving it!
A cast member told us it might be there only temporarily. If this is one of your favorite drinks, get it before its gone!
Germany- Food and Wine
At the Germany Food and Wine stand, we discovered that they added Bitburger Premium Pils!
We also noticed they changed the Weihenstephaner Festibier to the Weihenstephaner Original however we confirmed that they are the same drink.
If you love classic German beer, you must visit this booth!
House of Good Fortune
Are you into unique flavored snacks? We have found the potato chips for you! Introducing the Mexican Chicken Tomato Lays!
While we have seen some interesting flavors in this shop before, this one is pretty intriguing! You can grab these in the China pavilion!
Chefs de France
One of our favorite restaurants in World Showcase reopens TODAY and we are thrilled!
To prepare, menus have been put inside the windows. For reopening, they will offer a limited menu and a prix fixe menu option! This French favorite will be welcomed back with open arms!
World Traveler has some of your favorite snacks from Canada and France! We spotted Maple Creme cookies and Maple popcorn from the Canada pavilion.
The cookies are sold for $4.95 and the popcorn is sold for $6.95. We also found the French Butter Cookies!
These retail for $5.95. Now you can grab some of your favorite World Showcase treats at another location in the park!
Joffrey’s- Canada Pavilion
A spooky treat has arrived to Joffrey’s in the Canada pavilion! They have added a giant donut with orange colored frosting topped with crushed Oreo to the menu!
This is the first time we have seen a Halloween-themed donut from a Joffrey’s location at Disney this year! We were so excited to see them getting in the Halloween spirit!
Both Donut Box and Cool Wash were closed today!
We checked with cast members and they said the stands were only open on weekends only due to demand. We were sad to not get some delicious donuts today!
EPCOT Construction Update
Guardians of the Galaxy
We love seeing any little bits of progress we can but we CANNOT wait to go in!
On our last visit we noticed MORE construction walls pop up in the Italy pavilion. We know that EPCOT is preparing for its anniversary but wow! Another wall?!
Disney is currently updating the exterior but the interior entrance and exit that connected to other shops is also closed. Hey, at least the wall matches the color scheme of its surroundings! We will continue to update you on this new project in World Showcase.
Gateway Gifts and Pin Traders
Today, we noticed something different about the signage for Gateway Gifts and Pin Traders…new blue lining!
The lining was also added to Pin Traders!
They went above and beyond and added the blue lining above the store!
This design is much more sleek than the previous signage outside of these two shops! We love the new look!
EPCOT Merchandise Update
Since the store got a new makeover on the exterior, we had to go inside and we happened to find a couple of new pins! First, we found the Oliver & Co. Pin! This pin features the stars of the film and says “Off Taxi Duty!” This pin can be yours for $9.99!
We also found a limited release Haunted Mansion pin!
This one pays homage to your favorite hitchhiking ghosts and glows in the dark! We were so excited to add this to our Disney pin collection!
At Mouse Gear we spotted some familiar merchandise but in a new spot! We spotted some pajama pants and boxers over in Magic Kingdom but they have made their way into EPCOT!
All boxers and lounge pants are the same as we saw in Magic Kingdom with characters like Wreck-It Ralph and Disney emojis!
We are glad that you can pick up some super fun comfy clothes in both parks now!
At the Japan pavilion, we found some ADORABLE 2021 calendars! First, this Hello Kitty calendar! She is riding off into the new year in her cute, pink car!
The calendar features several prints featuring this beloved character! This can be yours for $14.99.
We also found a whole bunch of mini calendars shaped as different animals. This Mini Hedgehog Calendar had to be our favorite!
You can get yourself a little hedgehog for $9.95. Another one of our favorites was the Scottish Fold Calendar! This little one is just too cute!
These came in a variety of colors and are sold for $12.95. If you are getting excited for the new year, this is a perfect way to celebrate!
Tea Caddy- United Kingdom Pavilion
While strolling through the United Kingdom pavilion, we noticed some Rose and Crown glasses in the Tea Caddy shop!
A cast member mentioned that these were previously sold in the Crown Crest Shop but we are so glad they decided to make a reappearance! This glass features the UK flag, a rose and crown (of course), and a Pub door on the side!
Another new glass arrived at the tea shop! This one says “Mind Your Ps and Qs, Pull a Proper Pint!” How fun!
Both glasses can be found in the UK tea shop for $14.99.
We cannot wait to bring you along on our next trip to EPCOT! In the meantime, check out all of the spooky festivities all over Walt Disney World!
