Ah, EPCOT, how we love you for your nostalgia, your food, and your festivals.
If you’re headed to take in the sights in EPCOT sometime soon, you might be curious about what the latest NEWS is! Well, we’ve got you covered! We’re taking a look at ALL the latest updates from EPCOT in food, construction, and merchandise!
EPCOT Food Updates
We tried out all the new items including the Tomato and Cornbread Panzanella, Barbecue Seared Pork Tenderloin, and Lemon-Ricotta Cheesecake. Good news, it was super tasty!
Across the lagoon at the Mexico booth, Jardin de Fiestas was closed again during one of our visits. Keep in mind that all of the booths may not be open when you head over!
Lotus Blossom Cafe in the China Pavilion was serving up two new seasonal menu items — the Char Siu Combo and a Red Bean Ice Float. Both of these items are around for Disney’s A World of Voices, which celebrates Asian Pacific American Heritage Month.
These items may be on the limited side, so check out our review and head on over if you want to try them!
EPCOT Construction Updates
We noticed a few social distancing changes on some of the rides in EPCOT. Soarin’ no longer has plexiglass barriers featured in the seating.
Journey Into Imagination with Figment is now seating every row. Our reporter was a single rider and had a row to herself, but another party sat directly behind.
In the Morocco Pavilion, we noticed that some signage on the shops had been newly painted.
EPCOT Merchandise Updates
Mitsukoshi Department Store
A few new-to-us items were spotted in the Japan Pavilion’s Mitsukoshi Department Store. Take a look at this Pikachu Pin Backpack for $84.95.
And these cute Air Fresheners for $3.95 each!
