Hello world travelers! We’re back with another what’s new in EPCOT!
We recently visited the park to give you the latest updates on food, merchandise, construction, and more, so follow along with us!
EPCOT Food Updates
House of Good Fortune
As a friendly reminder, you can grab Mr. Brown at the grab and go drink fridge in the House of Good Fortune! This is canned iced coffee, but it’s great for if you want caffeine without a wait!
One can is just $3.25.
Rose & Crown Pub and Restaurant
At the beginning of the month, we learned that Rose & Crown Dining Room would close for refurbishment until early spring.
We headed over to check out what the restaurant looked like now. The restaurant service is down, however the seating areas both inside and outside are open.
You can still grab a drink from the pub, and now you’ve got more options for where to sit!
EPCOT Merchandise Updates
We noticed that the gift shop in the Norway Pavilion called The Fjording moved some its merchandise around! There are now shoes being sold where the Norway branded items were.
If you’re looking for some winter boots while in Florida…you’re in luck!
The Germany Pavilion was home to the Annual Passholder Pop-Up shop last year, where annual pass holders could get some exclusive Disney merchandise. Now, some of that merchandise from the pop-up is available in the Germany gift shops!
We also found a few new-to-us items in the shop including this Germany Tervis Tumbler.
It features Germany’s flag colors with Mickey on one side…
…and Minnie on the other! The tumbler is 39.99.
We also found a couple of new Germany Pavilion Pillows. One was white with Mickey and Minnie saying “Hallo”…
…and the other is blue with several German phrases and icons.
Mickey and Minnie look as cute as ever in their outfits!
Art of Disney
We recently spotted some new Soul t-shirts with the murals you can find around Disney Springs on them. Now, these t-shirts are available in the Art of Disney shop right by the new Soul of Jazz Exhibit.
Each t-shirt is $36.99 and features an artist’s gorgeous work. Plus, you can learn more about each artist on little placards around the merchandise. One of them features Mr. Mittens as Joe’s hair…
…and another shirt shows Joe in a galactic realm!
These murals are so unique, so it’s great that you can sport literal artwork on your shirts!
EPCOT Construction Updates
While in the Italy pavilion we checked to see if there was any progress on the La Gelateria construction.
Not much has changed, but it looks like it’s coming along! We’ll let you know as soon as we hear about an opening date for the new gelato stand.
United Kingdom Pavilion
Even though the Festival of the Arts is in its final days, it’s not over yet! Well, Disney apparently thinks it is because they’ve already removed some of the easels in the United Kingdom pavilion to make way for decor for the upcoming Flower and Garden Festival.
We noticed that some of the tea cup planters we’ve seen in past Flower and Garden Festivals are here.
Looks like Disney is ready to move onto the next festival!
While we walked around World Showcase, we saw that one of the arms on a Harmonious barge was being tested!
We’ve seen several tests on these two barges before, and we really can’t wait to see what they’ll look like in the show!
That’s all we got for updates in EPCOT today! We hope you had fun following along on our updates in food, merchandise, and construction. We’ll continue to make our way around to the Disney World theme parks and resorts, so stay tuned to DFB for the latest Disney updates!
