EPCOT Construction Updates
World Showcase Lagoon
We are mega-hyped for when Harmonious finally makes its debut as EPCOT’s newest nighttime spectacular! Recently, we’ve seen only one barge in the World Showcase Lagoon. But, now a second barge has joined!
When we stopped by, we noticed construction crews working on the barges.
We’ll keep an eye out for more construction updates soon!

Some days are just a bit more magical than others, and we were lucky enough to spot a wedding party celebrating today!
It was so sweet to catch a glimpse of the wonderful event in EPCOT!

Let’s get jazzy, folks! The American Adventure Pavilion is getting a brand new exhibit inspired by the newest Disney and Pixar film, Soul! The Soul of Jazz: An American Adventure, will make its debut in EPCOT this February.
According to Disney’s announcement, “You’ll join Joe Gardner…on a musical tour across America.” Stops on your tour include New Orleans, Chicago, New York City, Los Angeles, and San Juan, which are some of the biggest jazz cities in the world!
