Hello from EPCOT!
Over the past few days, we’ve made our way all around the park to see what’s new! From ALL of your Dapper Day essentials to a major store CLOSING, we’ve got ALL the updates you need to know right here. So sit back, relax, and join us for a virtual trip all around this Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow!
EPCOT Construction Updates
In terms of construction updates, there are quite a few things going on in EPCOT as part of that park’s MASSIVE transformation. A few weeks ago, we shared that a major store in EPCOT — Pin Traders — would be closing for 3 WEEKS!
We’ll continue to keep an eye out for more details on this store closure and construction, and keep you updated!
EPCOT Merchandise Updates
Dapper Day Essentials
If you’re searching for the perfect look to use for Dapper Day, EPCOT is the place to go! While you may be familiar with the Dapper Day organization for the events they host in the parks, where guests dress up in some fantastic outfits, they also have their own line of clothing and other items. Right now, through April 26th, you can find their Dapper Day pop-up shop in EPCOT near the Germany pavilion.
During one of our most recent visits, we saw that more merchandise had arrived at the pop-up shop. According to the Cast Member there, this pin…
…and Bird Dress are new!
The dress has some especially fantastic details!
So, if you’re looking to grab those or other items — you can visit the shop while it’s available in the park…
…or you can look at what merchandise items they have available online on their website.
The Fjording Shop
At The Fjording Shop in EPCOT’s Norway pavilion, we spotted a Helly Hansen toiletry bag. We’re not sure how long it has been available, but the bag was new-to-us.
You can grab this bag for $30.
House of Good Fortune
In the China pavilion, we stopped by the House of Good Fortune shop and spotted some very unique items for sale. In Disney World, you expect to buy Minnie ears, shoes, spirit jerseys, and those typical items. But, did you know you might also be able to go furniture shopping?!
While we were at the House of Good Fortune, we noticed that some of the furniture in the new Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month display are actually for sale!
Want to bring home a new desk? How about a Duan Ink Slab? You can do that! But it’ll cost you!! One of the items — a chair with marble details — was actually priced at $1,800!!!!
And there was another item that was even PRICIER! But hey, if you’re looking for something unique to bring to your home or apartment, you can get in that furniture shopping during your next trip to EPCOT.
Also at the House of Good Fortune, we found a very useful souvenir that you might actually be really thankful for during your Disney World trip or even at home. We’re talking about mask chains!
Mask chains can be a great way to hold onto your mask when you take it off — that way you don’t place it down on a dirty surface. So, if you’re looking for one in Disney World, you can head to the House of Good Fortune to grab one.
Other EPCOT Updates
If you’re looking for a unique Magic Shot in Disney World, you can stop by the Italy pavilion to grab one there in front of the flowers!
We just wanted to point it out to you in case you hadn’t noticed it before!
We also happened to be in EPCOT during Earth Day, and they were celebrating in special ways by handing out cute bee headbands…
Gotta love a good freebie in Disney World, especially one that can help you celebrate the Earth!
And that’s all for us from EPCOT for now! We’ll continue to visit the parks to see what’s new and keep you up to date on all the latest.
