Hello from EPCOT!
The Taste of EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays will be starting in just a few days! But we couldn’t wait until then to make our way around this fantastic park. Join us as we walk around EPCOT to check out the new holiday booths that are already up, get an update on some drink options around the park, and check out some cool merchandise!
EPCOT Food Updates
Eats at the EPCOT Experience
We asked a Cast Member about it, and they said that the location will be getting something new, but they were not sure when. We’ll keep an eye out for any more drink updates from this spot!
Germany Pavilion — Weinkellar
If you’re still looking to grab some Mozart Chocolate Cream Pumpkin Spice Liqueur from Weinkellar in the Germany pavilion, you may be out of luck!
While we spotted the regular Chocolate Cream Liqueur available, we noticed that there was no more of the pumpkin spice!
We asked a Cast Member about it and they said they didn’t think they would be getting more in at this time. Of course, this could change in the future, but it may finally be time to hang up those pumpkin spice flavors and embrace all things peppermint and gingerbread for the holiday season (at least for now)!
Snack Cart Near Living With the Land
Over in Future World, at a snack cart near Living With the Land, we saw that the Frozen 2 sipper, which we got a little while ago…
…was finally added to the menu.
If you’re a big fan of this popular sequel and are looking for a way to add some magic to your experience while at EPCOT and once you’re back at home, you can grab this sipper cup right now!
EPCOT Merchandise Updates
Over at Gateway Gifts, we found some of the adorable new hand sanitizers we had spotted earlier at Disney’s Contemporary Resort and Disney’s BoardWalk Inn. The ones we found at EPCOT were the Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Pluto, and Ariel designs.
These are priced at $9.99 each.
At Mouse Gear, we saw that the cute and comfy character Plaid Flannel shirts have made their way to this spot!
We’ll take one of each please!
We also spotted a new-to-us hoodie inspired by Pixar’s Up. On the front, the hoodie has those signature balloons from Up tied to Carl Fredricksen’s house, with the phrase “Adventure is out There!”
You can float away with this hoodie for $39.99.
Over in the France pavilion, we saw that the Remy apron is available again at Souvenirs de France, the gift shop attached to Les Halles Boulangerie Patisserie, and actually ON SALE for $20.99.
Here’s a closer look at this adorable design!
We recently spotted quite a bit of Ratatouille merchandise available again in this spot, so if you’re getting ready for Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure to open up in the park in 2021, and want to grab some cute Remy items now, this is a spot you’ll want to check out.
We also noticed that the BRAND NEW France ears that we spotted here just a few days ago were already SOLD OUT!
We asked a Cast Member about them and they said they had no idea when the ears would be returning. Looks like these cuties were quite popular! We’ll keep an eye out for them to see if they eventually get restocked.
Annual Passholder Pop-Up Shop in Germany
The Annual Passholder Pop-Up Shop in Germany offered Passholders the chance to get some great deals and unique merchandise, but during this trip around World Showcase, we saw that the store had in fact closed.
The store was only set up to be open through November 17th, so it was a scheduled closure. But, Passholders aren’t done getting special merchandise opportunities. Passholders will soon get the chance to buy some EXCLUSIVE holiday merchandise in Magic Kingdom!
Other EPCOT Updates
Festival of the Holidays
The Festival of the Holidays doesn’t start until November 27th, but Disney is getting EPCOT ready for LOTS of hungry guests! Recently, we spotted tons of holiday kitchen boots up throughout the park!
What items from this year’s festival will make our Best of the Fest list? We cannot wait to try them and find out!
We also saw some merchandise booths…
…as well as other decorations throughout the park for the Festival.
Oh what fun it is to eat all the holiday snacks at EPCOT!
We also found that a new EPCOT Festival of the Holidays guide map was available.
If you’re not sure how to start planning your delicious adventure at the Festival of the Holidays, check out our DFB Exclusive printable for ALL the Festival of the Holidays booths! But be warned, you may not want to start making your must-try list while you’re hungry!
Finally, we also saw that the holidays crowds have started to arrive in EPCOT. And with Disney indicating that Thanksgiving week capacity is almost at 100% of the increased 35% capacity, that’s really no surprise.
If you haven’t already made your Park Pass reservations for your upcoming holiday trip, we definitely recommend that you do so as quickly as possible!
Well, that’s all for us from EPCOT for now. We’ll definitely be back for the start of the Festival of the Holidays in just a few days so stay tuned for ALL the delicious updates!
