Hello, DFB Friends!
We’ve been to EPCOT, walked around World Showcase, and checked anything and everything out that’s new! So here are all the latest updates.
EPCOT Food Updates
Spice Road Table Juice Bar
The Spice Road Table Juice Bar in Morocco has switched up its set-up a little. Before, you would see the back of the juice machines when ordering. They switched out the juice machines with their small bakery case so now you can see what treat they have available.
A new snack cart called Oasis Sips and Sweets in Morocco has opened up! We had some rather pricey — but healthy — snacks there to check it out!
The cart should be open from 1PM every day, if staffing allows.
In Japan, Garden House was open! This is the pavilion’s outdoor sake bar.
A Cast Member told us that they hope to be open every day, as staffing allows.
EPCOT Merchandise Updates
House of Good Fortune
We discovered Mermicornos in the China Pavilion! These are plushes that are half unicorn and half mermaid and 100% unique! We ended up buying one as a gift!
A few were on sale for $10.95, while others were $13.95.
We also found some charming Year of the Ox Coin Banks. This one looks so happy.
This one also sports a big smile.
These coin banks are $18 each.
The Weinkeller wine of the week is a 2017 Graf Reipperg Lemberger.
It’s $8 for a 3 oz pour or $30 for the bottle. Cheers!
Die Weihnatchs Ecke
We decided to discover what the three most expensive items were in the Christmas shop in Germany. At first, we thought it was a Santa Klaus Stein for $135.
But it turned out to be a Nutcracker! He didn’t even have a price tag on him, but a Cast Member rang him up for us and we discovered that he was a whopping $150!
Our third place winner, though, was a pricey Teddy Bear for $64.99.
These ARE, however, handcrafted goodies from Germany, so that makes them nice collectibles. But whew!
It’s peach season in Japan, or at least at the Japan Pavilion. We found several different kinds of peach snacks, as well as a book about a “Peach Boy!”
After some research, we learned that Hinamatsuri is on March 3rd, which is a giant Peach Festival in Japan. It celebrates the peach blossom season on the lunar calendar. So that possibly explains all the sudden peach stuff we’re now seeing at the Japan Pavilion.
Super Mario Bros. fans rejoice — we found a Yoshi Baseball Cap! This vibrant green cap is $24.95.
Speaking of video games, we also found an Animal Crossing Backpack! For those who don’t know, Animal Crossing is a very popular game on the Nintendo Switch — it became THE game to play during 2020, thanks to all the quarantining we did.
It’s got so many of the game’s little animal characters on it. You can grab it now for $59.99.
EPCOT Construction Updates
Future World West
The waterways around Future World West were being drained when we visited EPCOT!
We thought it might have something to do with the upcoming Moana water attraction, but the waters are being refilled again, so it’s likely just some regular maintenance.
Festival Market Booth
The Festival Market Booths between Germany and Refreshment Outpost is now a pin station!
So pin traders have another spot to do their thing at EPCOT for the time being!
That’s it for our time at EPCOT, at least for now. But we’ll be back soon with even more updates!
