Don’t you just love EPCOT? We know we sure do!
And we especially love to see all the NEW things at EPCOT since we last traveled around the world and into the future.
EPCOT Dining Updates
Taste of Epcot International Food and Wine Festival
Even though EPCOT has officially been reopened for three months now, some Taste of Epcot International Food and Wine Festival booths opened later and some only seem to be operating on weekends and on busier days. Since we visited on a holiday, Columbus Day, we noticed that EVERY booth was open! You could grab bites at The Alps…
…and Islands of the Caribbean all serving up food!
Your mileage may vary, but if you want to try EVERY booth, it’s best to go on a weekend of holiday. Just beware of crowds!
Other Restaurant Openings and Closures
Other only-open-sometimes spots were also serving up food over the holiday! We strolled by an opened Kringla Bakeri Og Kafe…
…Could smell all the deliciousness from Yorkshire County Fish Shop…
…And even spotted the Outdoor Sake Bar at the Japan Pavilion open!
However, the Pizza Window and Sommerfest were still closed.
La Hacienda de San Angel
Because of the closure, La Hacienda is now opening when EPCOT does instead of at 3PM for dinner service only.
It may be spooky season, but Christmas is right around the corner — just look at Karamell Kuche, where we spotted a Gingerbread Salted Caramel Buttercream Cookie Sandwich!
Soft gingerbread cookies and tons of caramel? Uh, count us in any time of year!
Walt Disney Imagineering Presents: The EPCOT Experience
Brew lovers, rejoice! The EPCOT Experience snack stand has a NEW beer — Collective Arts Brewing’s Pina Colada Sour.
This beer is golden in color and may LOOK like your average beer, but it’s filled with refreshing coconut and vanilla flavors with a hint of tartness.
It’s the refreshing thing you need after walking around World Showcase!
EPCOT Merchandise Updates
This light gray spirit jersey features the lovable little green guy on the front and the phrase “The Bounty” on the back.
Want to bring The Child home? It’s $69.99.
House of Good Fortune
Due to the bustling nature of the park this day, both the indoor and outdoor locations at House of Good Fortune in the China Pavilion were open!
We did what we do best and bought some snacks! We got white rabbit and Mexican chicken tomato flavored Lays potato chips!
This store was also selling hot tea drinks and this WAY too cute pumpkin pet costume!
We apologize to our cats and dogs in advance for making them wear this outfit for the rest of October!
Canadian Trading Post
Oh, Canada! We spotted two new-to-us shirts at the Canada pavilion, each with sporty designs and the country’s signature maple leaf flag. This Canadian Mickey ringer tee is $34.99 and looks soo comfy!
We also this this Mickey Mouse Canadian hockey long sleeve tee is $39.99 and the perfect thing to wear when watching a match on the ice!
And if you need more cowbell in your life, this Mickey Canadian flag cowbell is a cool souvenir.
It’s appeared at EPCOT before but SOLD OUT!
