Hello from EPCOT!
We decided to wander around the world (quite literally) and see what’s new since the last time we visited!
EPCOT Food Updates
Rose & Crown Pub
We noticed something strange about the Rose & Crown Pub last weekend — the tables were unavailable! Some had been removed, while others were blocked off. We also saw more floor markers for social distancing on the floor. But when we visited EPCOT most recently, the tables had returned!
There are four sit-down tables, as well as two high-top tables for guests. A Cast Member told us that all tables were first-come, first-serve and only available on weekdays. Tables and chairs will be removed on weekends and holidays.
Regal Eagle Smokehouse: Craft Drafts & Barbecue
We spotted a new wine at Regal Eagle Smokehouse: Craft Drafts & Barbecue at The American Adventure Pavilion. The St. Francis Chardonnay has replaced the Reata Chardonnay.
However, the price is the same at $10.
The House of Good Fortune
At The House of Good Fortune at the China Pavilion, we tried out the Fried Crab flavored Lay’s potato chips. These are the perfect chips for seafood fans, and we personally liked that they were nice and salty.
These chips were $4.95, and if you’re not a big seafood fan, you’ll probably want to skip them — the crab flavor is STRONG.
This is one of the cheapest Food and Wine Festival souvenirs we’ve found! You can get the cup filled with your choice of soda for just $3.50.
EPCOT Construction Updates
America Gardens Theatre
We’re not sure what’s going on over at America Gardens Theatre, but we noticed that a part of the area was sectioned off.
EPCOT Merchandise Updates
If you’re looking for the Minnie Mouse Food and Wine Festival Ears, you’re out of luck for now — they are out of stock across the park. However, we noticed they were replaced with the Minnie Frosted Berry Ears at World Showplace.
The Berry ears are $29.99 and are available at other Disney World locations, too.
Pin Trading Headquarters
We spotted a new adorable pin in the Cereal Box Pin Series! The Limited Edition Timothy Mouse Cereal Box Pin is the second pin to be released in the series.
Each pin has a little game inside it. In case you can’t read it, it says, “Unscramble the list below to find delicious treats from the circus.” It’s a word scramble game! This pin is $17.99.
The Mickey Mouse Norway Baseball Cap is back in stock at the Norway Pavilion! This hat is $27.99.
Although we could get lost in Mitsukoshi, we still manage to find loads of new stuff in there! This time we spotted these Mini Magnet Calendars with a variety of fun designs. These mini-calendars are $5.95 each.
We will never say no to a new margarita glass (or a margarita…), especially one from Disney World! We found a brand new Mexico Margarita Glass for $16.99 in Mexico!
Mouse Gear now has the Pink Mickey Knit Throw Blanket we previously spotted at Animal Kingdom. It’s got pretty Mickey ears all over it. This blanket is $59.99.
We also spotted some of the loungewear and underwear we’ve seen elsewhere in the parks, too!
Lounge shorts and undies with Mickey and Friends, Wreck-It-Ralph, and Star Wars — you name it, and we saw it!
Annual Passholder Pop-Up Shop
When we learned about an Annual Passholder Pop-Up Shop coming to EPCOT, we couldn’t wait to get in line for it! And once we got in there, we spotted so many great deals on merchandise that we couldn’t contain our excitement! Seriously, look at this adorable Germany Mickey Mouse Onesie for $19.99.
And look at all this amazing Minnie Mouse France Merchandise! There are some big savings at this shop, too. All World Showcase merchandise is currently on sale for 50% off. Annual Passholders also get their regular discount, which is up to 30% off. SCORE.
It is such a great one-stop-shop for World Showcase merchandise! The shop is located at the Germany Pavilion — the entrance is at the front of the pavilion right by the pretzel cart. Only Annual Passholders are allowed to enter the shop, and they cannot bring non-Passholders in with them.
EPCOT Characters Update
Mary Poppins put on quite a show for us while we were at EPCOT. She held an entire conversation with Polly, her umbrella! We love it when characters bring Disney magic to life like this!
Mary is such a hoot!
We had fun during our day at EPCOT, and we’ll be back soon with even more news and updates!
