Welcome back, DFB friends! We’re here with another What’s New at EPCOT!
And, we’ve got plenty of updates to share with you! So, what are you waiting for? Let’s dive right on in!
EPCOT Merchandise Update
The PeopleMover has a special place in our hearts. And, if you’re a big PeopleMover fan, then you’re going to want to pick up the Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover Water Bottle at Mouse Gear. While the front features the classic Magic Kingdom attraction’s ride vehicle…
…the back has the famous tagline “Paging Mr. Morrow, Mr. Tom Morrow,” along with the PeopleMover logo!
The screw-top lid features a handle for easy carrying or the ability to hook to your bags. Since that Florida heat is already picking up for the summer, you’ll definitely want to make sure you stay hydrated!
Even though the PeopleMover is a Magic Kingdom ride, you can find it at EPCOT’s Mouse Gear for $27.99.
We’re just a few days away from the Fourth of July. And, we can’t WAIT to celebrate in Disney World with themed festivities and the return of fireworks! So, it’s no surprise that Disney is giving everyone the perfect accessories to don with their red, white, and blue outfits now that the Americana Ears are back on the shelves!
You might recognize these patriotic cuties from last year, as we saw them make their way into stores and online for the holiday. Prior to your Fourth of July celebrations, you can pick up the returning ears for $29.99 in Mouse Gear too!
EPCOT Entertainment Update
Whether you choose the Green Team or Orange Team, all your crew members can recap their space encounters after Mission Space now that the SPACE BASE has reopened!
Your smallest teammates can put their skills to the test in the obstacle course…
…before they try their hand at the other positions available on the spaceships!
Right next door, the interactive Expedition Mars video game and Postcards from Space spots have also reopened for guests of all ages.
Send us a postcard from your expeditions, friends!
While we were hanging around EPCOT, we spotted our pals Goofy and Pluto waving to guests near Spaceship Earth in Future World. And, they definitely were playing to the cameras with cheeky poses! They rotate with friends like Mickey and Minnie as well! This has been happening for a while, but it just makes us so happy. We had to share!
(How can you NOT love them?!)
EPCOT Construction Update
Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind
As we wait for all the other festivities to kick off during Disney World’s 50th anniversary, it looks like Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind may not be one of the attractions opening in 2021. Construction has still continued on the ride, as we have seen blue paneling added to the top of the roof.
There are a few gray panels that stand out against the blue currently, which is where a spaceship will be resting on top of the show building prior to the entrance to the ride!
Well, that’s all for this What’s New at EPCOT! We’ll catch you next time for more updates. And, if you have any questions about your upcoming Disney vacation, let us know so we can help you find the answers!
