Hello and welcome to another update from beautiful EPCOT!
We’re constantly making our way to the parks to see what’s new. Over the past few days, we’ve visited EPCOT a few times for the start of the International Festival of the Holidays and much more. Heading to EPCOT soon or just wishing you could be there? Join us for a virtual trip around the park to see what’s new!
EPCOT Food Updates
At the popcorn stand near the Journey Into Imagination with Figment ride, we noticed that they had the NEW Christmas tree popcorn bucket.
Lines were LONG to get this beauty though, so be prepared to do a bit of waiting!
EPCOT Merchandise Updates
At the Creations Shop, we’ve spotted quite a few new things over the past few days. First, there are the NEW $100 gift cards with holiday pins. We had already spotted these in Disney Springs, but were happy to see them available in EPCOT too.
They are $100 holiday gift cards that each come with a pin.
There are a variety of different designs.
They could make a great souvenir for you to use during your trip, or a nice gift for a Disney fan.
Plus they come with those great pins!
We also spotted some new 50th Anniversary jewelry in the store, mainly from Crislu.
There was a new necklace…
…and more earrings!
If you’re a board game fan, you can now pick up some Disney Parks Yahtzee for $44.99! We spotted this at a Disney World Resort hotel recently, but it was good to see in the park as well.
There were also quite a few new pins available, including a popcorn-themed pin set for $17.99…
…an Overshadowing Villains Mystery pin for $17.99…
…and a Winnie the Pooh pin for $12.99.
If you’re looking for Dooney & Bourke bags, Creations Shop typically has a lot in stock. During a recent visit, we spotted the Santa Paws bags available here.
We also saw that some fun Star Wars hoop earrings have been restocked.
Over at Pin Traders we found some new (or at least new-to-us) pins.
There was a Mickey and Minnie Mouse bow set…
…a pin that said “Work Hard Be Nice”…
…a Flubber pin…
…a pin set with a TV, ears, a VHS, and more…
…a High School Musical pin…
…a Dory pin…
…a Camp Rock pin…
…and a Dia de los Muertos pin.
We also found a new Mickey Candlelight Processional pin for $19.99.
Port of Entry
At Port of Entry, we saw that they had some Encanto merchandise available for purchase.
So, if you’re looking to celebrate this new film, you can pick up some of these new items.
Over in the Canada pavilion we spotted some beer…SOCKS! These are designed to look like cans of beer but contain socks inside of them.
These may have been around for a while, but they were so funny to us, we just had to share them with you!
You can get these for $14.99.
EPCOT Construction Updates
In terms of construction updates, we saw that part of the area near the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy coaster is open for guests to walk through and sit.
Looks like things are really progressing in this area. We can’t wait to see it once it’s all finished!
Near the Seas with Nemo and Friends and the Coral Reef Restaurant, we also spotted what appears to be some construction being done on the floor in the area.
We’ll keep an eye out for more updates on that.
EPCOT Miscellaneous Updates
If you’re planning to visit EPCOT soon, you’ll probably be happy to know that the International Festival of the Holidays has officially begun!
There are all kinds of decorations, merchandise, entertainment, activities, and (of course) food and drinks available as part of the Festival. It’ll be available now through December 30th, so go check it out!
When we stopped by recently, we also visited Les Halles Boulangerie Patisserie in the France pavilion and noticed that it had an EXTREMELY long line. If you’re planning to visit this spot for some delicious treats, be sure to get there early or be prepared for a little bit of a wait.
And that’s is for us from EPCOT! Be sure to check back with us for more news.
