Welcome, world travelers, to another update from EPCOT!
We’re checking out all of the latest findings across EPCOT’s construction, food, and merchandise updates! Let’s dive right in!
EPCOT Construction Updates
Recently, we spotted new construction walls in the Morocco Pavilion on a recent visit to EPCOT! The walls blocked our ability to enter any of the back areas of the Pavilion.
We’ll continue to keep an eye on all of the developments happening in the Morocco Pavilion in the coming weeks and months!
EPCOT Food Updates
We found a couple of new menu additions at Choza de Margarita in the Mexico Pavilion! First up is the Wild Passion Margarita for $14.75. Margaritas are a crowd favorite when drinking around the world, so we were pumped to find a new drink on the menu!
We paired our margarita with the new Tacos de Cochinita for $10.50. The tacos are made with citrus-marinated pulled pork and covered in pickled red onions and mango habanero relish served on corn tortillas with a side of corn Esquites. It’s a great snack-sized portion!
Few things can top a perfect food and drink combo in World Showcase, but tacos paired with a margarita? Paradise! Try both of these items on your next trip to EPCOT.
Our next stop in our newest discoveries at EPCOT brings us to Joy of Tea in the China Pavilion! There, we spotted a sign advertising their new special, the Sunset Cocktail.
The Sunset Cocktail is a mixture of Jose Cuervo Tequila Gold, light rum, strawberry syrup, Pina Colada mix, soda water, and milk foam. We found it to be just like a strawberry-flavored Pina Colada!
Overall, this drink was STRONG, which for some would totally justify the $12.75 price tag. Try it out next time you’re in the China Pavilion!
Over at L’Artisan des Glaces in the France Pavilion, we didn’t discover a new menu item, but rather a new menu hack! Introducing the Mickey Mouse Ice Cream Cone, made with a single-scoop of ice cream and two macarons!
Simply order one scoop of whatever flavor of ice cream you want in a cone for $5, and top it off with two macaron ears for $1.40 each! Overall, you have yourself a $7.80 custom dessert!
Everything tastes better when it’s shaped like Mickey Mouse, and we’ll totally revisit this ice cream hack whenever we visit the France Pavilion!
Never one to be outdone, the Japan Pavilion has a new unique snack to check out! We spotted Mainichino, Nuts & Cranberry-flavored Kit Kat bars!
You can certainly count on the Japan Pavilion to have wonderfully unique snack flavors, so check out Mitsukoshi and try them for yourself!
EPCOT Merchandise Updates
In Mouse Gear, we spotted a new item for your Disney-inspired kitchen! Check out this adorable Mickey Mouse colander to strain all of your veggies and pasta in at home!
We also came across the new Alien Popcorn Bucket Keychain. We still can’t decide if this little guy is cute or absolutely horrifying.
We also spotted the keychain in Disney Traders! Whether he’s filled with popcorn or he’s foaming at the mouth, this might be an easier grab than the Alien popcorn bucket itself!
Over in the Norway Pavilion, we spotted a new collection of Helly Hansen clothing!
You’ve been able to purchase Helly Hansen jackets and other apparel in the Norway Pavilion for quite some time, so we’re always excited when we see new items come in!
Be on the lookout for the newest items on your next trip to Norway!
Over in the China Pavilion, we spotted Lunar New Year items for sale in House of Good Fortune!
You can collect all kinds of celebratory decor if you’re still feeling a bit festive in ringing in the Year of the Ox! Be sure to check these items out before they’re all gone!
The American Adventure Pavilion
Last but not least, we spotted some new Soul toys for sale in the American Adventure Pavilion!
The newest Pixar film to arrive on Disney+ has had tons of fun merchandise pop up around the parks. The collection includes twelve mini figurines featuring the characters from the movie!
This is a one-stop shop in collecting all twelve figurines, so be sure to check them out if you’re a big fan of Soul like we are!
That wraps it up for this installment of updates from the Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow! Be sure to stay tuned for more of the latest news from EPCOT and around Disney World!
