Oh, EPCOT… How do we love thee? Let us count the ways.
We love thee for all the staples (Spaceship Earth, festivals) and for all of the NEW things. And hey, let’s see what IS new in jolly ol’ EPCOT!
EPCOT Food and Drink Updates
Regal Eagle Smokehouse
Summer may be a distant memory, but refreshing drinks are forever. Regal Eagle Smokehouse has a new alcoholic beverage option, the Frozen Iced Tea Lemonade, made with Tito’s vodka.
Technically, they could always add the alcohol of your choice to the frozen slushies (which also include Mint Julep and Strawberry Daiquiri), but they’re calling out the lemonade and vodka combo specifically with a sign.
House of Good Fortune
We’ve found a TON of interesting potato chips at EPCOT lately, and now the House of Good Fortune shop in the China pavilion has Lays Taro Chips!
We’ve been pleasantly surprised by EPCOT’s chips in the past, so these could be a winner too!
EPCOT Character Updates
We’ve seen them in cavalcades, but now our favorite Frozen queens are doing socially-distanced meet-and-greets and photo opps at the Norway Pavilion!
Like most character appearances these days, Anna and Elsa don’t appear on a set schedule.
So, next time you’re in Norway, who knows?! You could see a familiar face!
EPCOT Merchandise Updates
Mission: Space Cargo Bay
Christmas is right around the corner, if this Shoulder Christmas tree Groot plush has anything to say about it!
We spotted this festively lit lil buddy at Mission: Space Cargo Bay in Future World for $19.99!
Test Track Simporium
Christmas has reached another galaxy — the Star Wars galaxy! We spotted some festive Star Wars pins at the Test Track Simporium in Future World!
There’s a Millennium Falcon made out of gingerbread…
…Yoda levitating a star on top of a Christmas tree… (Wait — can he come to our house and do that?!)
…Some Jawas unwrapping R2-D2….
…And Darth Vader and a couple of Stormtroopers singing what we can only imagine to be some dastardly caroles!
These pins are $9.99 each!
Christmas is all over EPCOT! We also spotted some festive pins at Image Works over by Journey Into the Imagination! Mickey and Minnie share a lil smooch in this sweet Christmas pin!
In fact, it’s so sweet Mickey turned into a gingerbread Mickey in this pin!
Winnie the Pooh and friends are busy decking the halls here…
While Goofy struggles to wrap a present and not himself in his own starring pin!
Meanwhile, Slinky Dog found a friend in his gift box!
There are also some Christmas buddies like Chip ‘n’ Dale…
…Fozzie and Gonzo…
…and Stitch and Jumba Jookiba!
Most of these pins are $9.99, while Chip ‘n’ Dale are $14.99.
Be our guest and see the new Beauty and the Beast Wishables! The new limited release blind bags feature Belle, Lumiere, Cogsworth, or the Wardrobe!
Want to know which Beauty and the Beast character you’re going to get for sure? Well, there’s The Beast for you!
These sweet plushes are $9.99 each!
We also spotted some new crop top sweatshirts at Mouse Gear, too!
So cozy for fall!
As the Germany Pavilion houses the Annual Passholder pop-up, a festival booth that used to be a gardening booth now houses German merchandise.
Meanwhile, the booth that used to sell the Figment Food and Wine Festival merch now has pins!
Speaking of festival merchandise, we’ve seen that a Minnie Mouse Queen of Cuisine spirit jersey was 30% off, and now MORE festival merch is showing the same discount!
And there you have it! That’s all the new sights, stuff, and bites at EPCOT! Until next time!
