It wasn’t difficult to find new things in EPCOT this week since so many BIG things have been happening there lately! Here are all the new things that happened in EPCOT recently.
We’ll first look at all the food news we could find in EPCOT in the last couple of days.
EPCOT Food Updates
The biggest EPCOT food news is that Space 220 is opening up soon! The restaurant opens for walk-ins on September 20th. Only walk-ins will be taken on September 20th through the 26th, but you can start making reservations on September 20th for dates starting September 27th or later.
We’ve seen quite a bit of Space 220 news recently, like reveal of this spot’s FULL menus, new concept art, and even a look inside the restaurant itself. Earlier this week, we spotted a big new sign in EPCOT that proves Space 220 is closer than ever to opening!
There was also a smaller sign near another part of Mission: SPACE.
We’ll be covering all of Space 220’s opening next week, so stay tuned with DFB!
In other EPCOT food news — or rather, drink news — Club Cool has officially reopened in EPCOT!
This was a popular spot before it closed in 2019, and now it’s back in a new location and looking better than ever. At Club Cool, you can take a look at Coca-Cola merchandise and buy specialty sodas, but the real attraction is the samples you can get of sodas from around the world.
The Club was very in-demand when we went, with a fairly long line outside, but there’s limited capacity inside as only one party was allowed at each soda machine at a time.
If you’re looking for a family-friendly way of drinking around the world (for FREE), this is a really fun stop!
The new stand brought Halloween popcorn buckets with it. These Halloween designs are the same as ones we’ve seen in the past.
Along with popcorn, you’ll find other classic treats at this stand like Nestle Mickey’s Premium Ice Cream Bars, Nestle Mickey’s Premium Ice Cream Sandwiches, and Outshine Strawberry Fruit Bars.
You can now place a Mobile Order at this caramel kitchen for your favorite treats, so get ready to grab caramel popcorn, caramel squares, and caramel apples galore without waiting in the regular line.
Mobile Order is coming to several more candy kitchens around Disney World — see which other ones will soon feature Mobile Order here.
EPCOT Merchandise Updates
There’s BIG news on the EPCOT merchandise front. A brand new store in EPCOT called the Creations Shop has officially opened!
Besides these collections, there’s plenty of Disney merchandise inside to check out.
We found a lot of amazing EPCOT-themed items…
…but we don’t know if any item can beat these beautiful light-up ears.
They’re available at the Creations Shop for $39.99.
We also spotted some new Star Wars jewelry in the Creations Shop, including these studs for $24.99.
They’re such a cute way to subtly add some Star Wars to any outfit! There was also a Baby Yoda bracelet for $24.99…
…a Princess Leia necklace for $19.99…
…and some Star Wars ship earrings for $24.99.
Toward the front of the Creations Shop, we saw a display of Wonderland Tea with new packaging. You can now get your tea in teacup-shaped boxes!
The boxes were $7.99 each.
You can also buy the tea in these cylinder containers, which are $9.99 each. The available flavors included The Queen’s Garden Blend…
…the White Rose Blend…
…and the Unbirthday Cake Blend.
Are you a fan of tea? If so, you might want to check these out!
Even if you’re not in the Creations Shop, there’s still more new EPCOT merchandise to check out. At the France Pavilion, we found a new child’s sweatshirt that features Mickey and Pluto in Paris!
This sweatshirt was $39.99. If you’re shopping for an adult, we also found a new tank top with Mickey and Minnie in Paris.
The top has “Rendez-vous a Paris” embroidered on the front along with a cute design of Mickey and Minnie Mouse.
You can get it for $36.99.
EPCOT Construction Updates
50th Anniversary Statues
This week, EPCOT got several of the new 50th Anniversary gold character statues! We spotted statues of Figment…
…Olaf and Bruni from Frozen II…
…Pua and Hei Hei from Moana…
…Rocket and Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy…
…and Miguel and Dante from Coco.
These statues are all over the Disney World parks now!
All of the Disney World park icons will be getting a makeover for the 50th Anniversary, and recently we got to see a sneak peek at what Spaceship Earth will look like when its special transformation takes full effect.
We can’t wait to see this makeover live and in person!
