We’re taking a spin around Disney World’s work-in-progress park!
That’s right, we spent the day in EPCOT yesterday and we’re here to bring you an update on everything NEW! Here are all the latest changes in food, construction, and merchandise!
Before we dive into the news we’ve got a bit of a crowds update. Well, there were none! EPCOT was pretty darn empty yesterday.
We even spotted a 10-minute posted wait for Frozen Ever After and WALKED RIGHT ON. They didn’t even have the entire queue open!
EPCOT Food Updates
We had a little fun and tried a few of the bread options at Les Halles Boulangerie-Patisserie including the Bisque de Homard (Lobster Bisque in a Bread Bowl) for $5.75, the Croissant for $2.90 and the Full Baguette for $3.10. We tried to pick a winner — but it was all delicious!
Can you believe that Baguette is just $3? What a DEAL.
Over at Eats at the EPCOT Experience, we noted that pizza was back on the menu. This is a great spot to grab some easy and basic eats when you need to fuel up in Future World.
On our last visit to EPCOT, we swung by Kringla Bakeri og Kafe to try the new Kransekake cookie. At the time, a Cast Member told us they didn’t have it and gave us the Almond Ring Cookie.
Well, it turns out the Almond Ring Cookie IS the Kransekake!
EPCOT Construction Updates
When we first arrived at EPCOT in the morning, we noticed something pretty interesting on the barges for the upcoming Harmonious nighttime spectacular. One of the barges had a grid pattern lit up on it!
This tech appears pretty similar to that of projection mapping which is used for other nighttime spectaculars such as Happily Ever After in Magic Kingdom.
Expression Section is a fun offering at the EPCOT International Festival of the Arts where guests can participate in a MASSIVE paint-by-number mural. Today, there was a new mural for guests to paint!
We also spotted some new chalk art including a Goofy piece…
…and a Figment piece.
We love spotting all of the new work every time we swing back over to Festival of the Arts!
EPCOT Merchandise Updates
Pin Trading Headquarters
Last year we spotted some sweet Princess Tiara Pins in Disneyland and they were selling quick! Now, the pins are available at Pin Trading Headquarters including some designs we hadn’t seen yet. Take a look at the Jasmine Tiara Pin…
…the Aurora Tiara Pin…
…the Tiana Tiara Pin…
…and the Cinderella Tiara Pin! These are available for $12.99 each.
Port of Entry
Over at Port of Entry, we spotted two new-to-us Mickey T-shirts for $36.99 each.
Plus, we noticed that all of the new Starbucks Tumblers were sold out at this location, but they did have the older version in stock!
That’s all this time! We’ll be checking back in on EPCOT soon. As always, keep an eye on DFB for allllll the latest Disney news from the Most Magical Place on Earth and BEYOND!
