There is lots to see and do all around EPCOT.
We’re constantly on the lookout for any NEW merchandise, activities, construction, food, etc. in the parks, and today we’re bringing you all the latest updates from this very popular park!
EPCOT Food Updates
La Cava del Tequila
At La Cava del Tequila, we saw that a mezcal called Wild Common…
…and a tequila called Curamia are now being served.
You can stop by La Cava to see what new drinks they have available during your visit!
In the Germany pavilion, we noticed that there were quite a LOT of packaged treats available! Some of these may have been around for a while, but we wanted to highlight them here in case you’ve never seen them before.
We spotted apple pastries…
…Iced Gingerbread Cookies…
…Marzipan Stollen Pieces…
If you’re looking for a way to sample German treats, but aren’t interested in some of the other items available at the pavilion, be sure to take a look at these.
At the Italy pavilion, we also saw lots of packaged treats were available.
Again, some of these may have been here before but we wanted to highlight them for you, as many fans tend to walk right past the packaged treats!
We also saw some holiday-themed Cono Snacks!
Time to get your snack on!
EPCOT Merchandise Updates
At the Creations Shop, we spotted a new Moana-themed MagicBand.
If you’re a big fan of Moana and/or are excited for the NEW Moana attraction coming to EPCOT, you can pick up one of these new MagicBands for $29.99.
We also spotted a new bag charm available at the Creations Shop for $9.99 which says “My Happy Place.”
The NEW 50th Anniversary Dooney & Bourke bags were also available at the Creations Shop, with plenty of supply.
If you’re having a hard time finding these bags in other spots, try checking the Creations Shop!
Port of Entry
At Port of Entry, there were plenty of the 50th Anniversary black and gold Starbucks tumblers in stock when we visited previously.
But, note that stock can change rapidly.
Plaza de Los Amigos
In the Plaza de Los Amigos in the Mexico pavilion, we saw a fun Coco shirt…
…and hoodie that are now available.
If you’re a big Coco fan, you can check these out during your next visit!
House of Good Fortune
The merchandise in Disney World can be expensive, but sometimes you can find a few sales going on. While you might expect to see those sales in some of the more “standard” Disney stores, you can also sometimes find them at the unique stores in World Showcase.
Over at the House of Good Fortune, we saw some items were on clearance!
There was a shirt discounted to $16.95…
…and a mug on sale for $7.95 (down from $9.95).
It’s always good to look and see what might be available and whether you could potentially score a good deal.
In the Italy pavilion, we saw some new-to-us merchandise. There was a Topolino luggage tag for $12.99…
…a scarf for $9.99…
…a white/cream shirt for $39.99…
…an orange shirt for $36.99…
…a long-sleeve shirt for $54.99…
…a passport holder…
…a grey shirt/sweatshirt for $34.99…
…a Mickey and Minnie shirt…
Also, we saw that guests could personalize their bottles of perfume during select dates.
That offer was only available for a limited time, but be sure to check and see if any special offers are available during your trip.
In the Japan pavilion, we saw that our meh…egg friend was sporting a Santa hat in a fun plush that is priced at $12.95.
At the Morocco pavilion, the stores on the outskirts of the pavilion are still closed.
We’ll be keeping an eye out for any updates about this space.
In the United Kingdom pavilion, we spotted some new-to-us honeycomb dips candies.
These were available for $5.99 each.
We also saw that Crown & Crest was open and looking very festive for the holiday season!
Mission Space Cargo Bay
If you’re looking for Stitch merchandise, you can head over to Mission Space Cargo Bay to snatch up this fun new Stitch socks set we found!
These come in a set of 3…
…and feature different little images of Stitch on them.
They’d be a fun buy for any Stitch fan you might know!
At the Norway pavilion, we spotted a NEW fragrance that launched recently — SNO.
Gift sets are priced at $109 and come with a reversible bag.
EPCOT Holiday Updates
The EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays will soon be here, and EPCOT is getting ready! During a recent visit, we saw that the stage for Joyful! was being set up and already had some times posted.
We also spotted some stages and signs in Mexico…
…and the United Kingdom, among other spots.
We expect these stages will be utilized for the various storytellers and entertainers that will be available for the Festival.
In the American Adventure pavilion, Cast Members were getting ready for Candlelight Processional and setting up the stage at the American Gardens Theatre!
At Living with the Land, holiday decorations have appeared throughout the ride!
There are holiday lights, wreaths…
If you’ve never been on this ride during the holiday season, it’s one you won’t want to miss (particularly at night).
Over the past few days, we also noticed that the Food & Wine Festival Booths have disappeared, and Festival of the Holidays booths have popped up!
The Festival will begin in just a few days — on November 26th!
On the L’Chaim Booth, we also spotted a little Olaf getting ready for the holiday scavenger hunt that will be available during the Festival of the Holidays!
During the Festival of the Holidays, you’ll be able to search for Olaf throughout the park.
EPCOT Character Meet & Greet Updates
If you’re looking to say “hello” to some characters in EPCOT, there are quite a few to find. For example, during a recent trip we got to say “hi” to Mulan over in the China pavilion. These character meet-and-greets are distanced, but still give you the chance to see some popular Disney friends.
And at the Magic Eye Theater (where the Disney and Pixar Short Film Festival is typically shown), you can now find Mickey Mouse!
With Mickey’s modified character meet-and-greet, you can take pictures and talk to Mickey in this themed space, while keeping a certain amount of distance.
EPCOT General Updates
At the Art of Disney, we saw that Rob Kaz was out painting.
If you love Disney and art, this is a spot you’ll want to stop by as you never know who you might spot.
During one of our visits, it was also Dapper Day in EPCOT!
Despite the rain, guests were dressed up and looking wonderful.
We also noticed that there were some big crowds, despite the rain.
We also spotted a few new-to-us pictures shown at select PhotoPass photo spots, like this one in the United Kingdom…
…and this one near Germany.
Canada Far & Wide (the show in the Canada pavilion) was closed during the Food & Wine Festival, as the space was being used for the Appleseed Orchard booth. During a recent visit, we saw that signage for the attraction is up, but no showtimes are available yet.
We’ll look for more updates.
In EPCOT, we also saw that select Cast Members got some NEW, green shirts.
The shirts are extra special as they’re made of plastic bottles!
And that’s it for us from EPCOT. Stay tuned for more updates!
