Hello from EPCOT, DFB friends!
We’re taking you with us as we visit the park for the latest in construction, merchandise, and more. Let’s get started!
EPCOT Construction Updates
Disney hasn’t announced when this show will debut, but we’re keeping an eye out for any updates.
EPCOT Merchandise Updates
We also noticed that the new “Arivederci Minnie Mouse” MagicBands have been restocked in the Italy Pavilion!
They cost $39.99 each, and there are only 500 of ’em. If you’ve got your eye on one, you’ll want to grab it soon!
EPCOT Additional Updates
It seems like rope drop has returned to normal in EPCOT. On our last few visits, guests were being held at the entrance of the park instead of trickling in a little bit at a time, as they’d been doing the last few months.
This is more along the lines of what rope drop looked like pre-COVID. Still, we were let inside the park about half an hour before the official opening time.
We also spotted the newest PhotoPass spot in the park. Check out that Tiny World camera!
Here’s what the Magic Shot looks like.
Pretty neat, right?
And of course, what’s a trip to Disney World without running into some characters?! We saw Mary Poppins in the United Kingdom Pavilion…
…and Scuba Mickey in the Seas Pavilion!
He was greeting guests in full scuba gear to celebrate World Ocean Day.
We spotted several social distancing changes throughout the park. At Regal Eagle Smokehouse in the American Adventure Pavilion, tables no longer have social distancing stickers — guests can sit at any of them.
And next door, rows are no longer blocked off at the American Adventure Show.
The same is the case for the Beauty and the Beast Sing-Along in the France Pavilion…
…as well as Canada Far and Wide in (ya guessed it) the Canada Pavilion. We’ll keep an eye out for more changes like this in EPCOT and the other parks!
And that wraps up our quick trip to EPCOT! We’ll be back with MORE news from Disney World soon, so stay tuned to DFB.
