Feeling those mid-week blues? Well, there’s no cure for that quite like a visit to EPCOT! (A virtual visit, that is.)
We’ve been in the park several times in the past week, and we found a BUNCH of new things to share with you guys. From food to construction to merchandise, here’s everything that’s new in EPCOT!
EPCOT Food Updates
EPCOT International Festival of the Arts
This week, the next EPCOT festival arrived in the park — the Festival of the Arts! We were there on opening day to check out all the food, entertainment, merchandise, and of course, stunning artwork around the park. It has been a blast so far!
And if you’re visiting the festival soon and hope to watch the Disney on Broadway concert series, then you may want to consider booking a dining package. They’re available at multiple table service restaurants, but you can also find them at two other spots: Spice Road Table and Regal Eagle.
You’ll want to make sure that you order the specific dining package to get reserved seating at one of the day’s shows.

EPCOT Construction Updates
Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind
Over at Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, painting was continuing on the outside of the building. We saw a lot of progress throughout the week, but at one point there was a distinct line where the workers had stopped.
We’re definitely interested to see how work progresses on this attraction before its opening this summer.

EPCOT Merchandise Updates
Starting out in World Showcase, Disney Traders has a new ACME Archives display for the Festival of the Arts. Most of the artwork available in here is Marvel-themed, with some of your favorite superheroes represented in painting or drawing form.
There are all kinds of other artwork options to check out at the various tents around the park as well, so make sure you stop by while the festival is going on.
Mitsukoshi Department Store
In Japan’s Mitsukoshi Department Store, you can find all kinds of interesting merchandise, especially if you’re looking for something with a non-Disney character. We spotted a brand-new Animal Crossing-themed puzzle this week!
This would be a great pastime if you’re hanging out in your hotel room. It’s 250 pieces, so it shouldn’t take too long.
The Tea Caddy
In the U.K. Pavilion, The Tea Caddy should be your go-to for a wide variety of delicious teas and souvenirs from across the pond. During a recent visit, we found that they’re now selling a create-your-own tea box for $18.
You can mix and match a variety of flavors, and it all comes with this beautiful wooden tea chest for storage. That’ll look stunning on your shelf!
And over at EPCOT’s premier gift shop, there were a couple new items this week as well. First up, we have this Stitch Ohana necklace, which is available for $19.99.
And there’s also a new Passholder 50th Anniversary phone case for sale. It’s $34.99 and has the anniversary logo on the front, with Mickey Mouse in his EARidescent outfit.
It looks like Disney isn’t slowing down with that 50th Anniversary merch anytime soon!
