Greetings from Disney World’s work-in-progress park!
We visited EPCOT yesterday to check out all of the latest changes and updates after the end of the EPCOT International Festival of the Arts. So, without further ado, here’s all the latest news in food, construction, and merchandise!
EPCOT Food Updates
House of Good Fortune
First up on the snack front, we spotted some new-to-us Tomato…
…and Wasabi Chips at House of Good Fortune in the China Pavilion. If you’re looking for fun flavors, these could be worth a try! These are $4.50 each.
After our stop at the House of Good Fortune, we noticed something sort of interesting on our receipt. There’s a discount being offered at Nine Dragons. Well, that seems pretty normal — except Nine Dragons is closed right now!
We spoke to a Cast Member who told us that the discount has been listed on receipts for a while and she thinks that it will be offered when the spot reopens. Well, when it does, you might be able to snag a 20% discount on lunch.
Refreshment Outpost was offering an exciting new soft-serve option! Are you ready? It’s Strawberry and Banana SWIRL Soft-Serve.
We won’t lie, we were pretty wowed by this combo and the waffle cone it comes in made it even better. Try it yourself for $5.25.
Garden House was open while we were there and we spotted that QR Code Menus were posted in the queue.
Good news, cheese lovers! The Brie Bowl has returned to Les Halles Boulangerie-Patisserie in the France Pavilion!
EPCOT Construction Updates
On to the construction updates! Finally! The last wall in front of Spaceship Earth has come down. Yup, all of the walls are BEHIND Spaceship Earth now.
This change has the entrance area looking quite spiffy and we can’t wait to see the rest of World Celebration when more walls come down.
We also saw a few updates that show that EPCOT is getting ready for the 2021 EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival on March 3rd! Take this new map, for one!
It fittingly shows some masked guests getting ready to enjoy a fun fest!
But that definitely wasn’t the biggest sign of the festival popping up! We also spotted booths for the festival…
…and signage around! Eek! We can’t wait to explore a new fest!
Aaaand we’ve got a topiary update! We’ve already seen a few topiaries but today we noticed some more had been added including the Lady and the Tramp topiaries…
…the Dragon topiary…
…the Remy topiary…
…the Belle and Beast topiaries…
…and the Kermit and Miss Piggy topiaries.
Test Track had a development too. Since the parks reopened, this attraction has been loading one party per car, but we noticed a shift today.
EPCOT Merchandise Updates
At Mouse Gear, we spotted two new-to-us t-shirts for $24.99 each. There’s this Mickey and Friends Shirt…
…and the Cinderella Castle Shirt.
House of Good Fortune
The House of Good Fortune had two watches from Shanghai Disney! The one on the left is $129 and the right one is $295.
