We hope you’re sitting down, because there’s a LOT to cover in Disney World today! From new health and safety updates to returning restaurants, there’s been a ton of news coming from Disney lately. Today, we’re here to talk about EPCOT! It’s amazing how many NEW things we manage to find in just one week. If only our local Target had this many new items on a weekly basis…on second thought, that could be dangerous for our wallets, so it’s probably for the best.
Let’s take a (virtual) trip around EPCOT to see what’s new!
EPCOT Merchandise Updates
Basin Booth — World Showcase
We found TONS (seriously, we got super excited) of new Flower & Garden Festival-exclusive items at the Basin booth in the EPCOT World Showcase. First up, we’d like to congratulate the person who came up with these World Showcase pavilion-specific scents! Guests can fill their own container of bath salts for $5.99 each.
There are also some new body butters and foot scrubs!
Both are $11.99, or you can take advantage of a 3 for $30 deal.
There are a BUNCH of new lip balms that are $4.99 each, or 3 for $12 if you can’t decide!
We found this COOL EPCOT glycerin soap! The best part is that it’s shaped like Spaceship Earth — how fun is that?! You can buy this soap for $9.99.
Finally, remember when everyone went WILD for Disney’s Mickey-shaped soap dispenser? Well, now you can get a flower-shaped soap dispenser for $19.99!
Washing your hands is WAY more fun with flower soap.
Mission Space Cargo Bay — World Discovery
Did you know that Walt Disney had a fascination with space? If you, too, love all things SPACE, check out this new NASA tumbler for $20.
The Mission Space gift shop also has these silver astronaut water bottles for $28.
Let’s head over to the Creations Shop next!
Creations — World Celebration
We found some new Flower & Garden Festival merchandise in the Creations Shop, like these Pandora Flower & Garden Festival Charm Sets for $175.
How cute is this Flower & Garden fork and trowel set? You can pick it up for $30!
Like most other spirit jerseys, you can buy them for $74.99.
Disney’s Be Happy collection has three new foldable fans!
Even though the Festival of the Arts is over, you can still buy this Apple Watch Band for $34.99.
Going back to the CURRENT festival, we found this super cute Flower & Garden tin for $29.99…
… as weel as these Flower & Garden notecards for $9.99…
…and finally, a Grow Happiness button-up shirt for $50.
If you’re looking to freshen up your kitchen with some new items, you’re in luck! Disney has serval new and restocked items! First, there’s this round Mickey container for $24.99, which was recently restocked!
We noticed that the set of 4 small plates for $34.99 was restocked. Each plate has a different print — but they’re all equally cute!
To match, there are also some new larger plates for $14.99 each.
Finally, Disney released this cute set of 4 coasters, each with a different print for $24.99.
Whew! That’s everything from Creations!
Disney Traders — World Showcase Plaza
Pin time! For our princess pin collectors, princess Mulan finally has her time to shine!
Both new pins are $19.99.
Winnie the Pooh is one of the cutest Disney characters EVER; do you agree? His new pin is $17.99.

The new U.K. collection has been surprisingly popular!
We found this new Big Ben purse for $39.99.
Plaza de Los Amigos — Mexico
There seems to be a new Mexico-themed merchandise collection in the Mexico pavilion! First up, there’s this glass cup for $14.99.
Mexico is also selling this fun mug you might be interested in for $14.99 (if your mug collection isn’t already overflowing, that is).
To keep your new glass cups safe, you can buy this coaster set for $24.99!
The final new item in the collection is this hot plate for $14.99.
That seems to be the magic number, huh?!
The Art of Disney — The American Adventure
The Mulan doll is one of the newest additions to the Disney Designer Doll collection!
She’s pretty expensive at $129.99, but think of it as an investment. (That’s what we used to tell our parents when we wanted to buy a pricey item — it still works! 😌)
The Tea Caddy — U.K.
Stock up on tea with the new Twinings tea collection for $29.99. It comes with 48 tea bags, so it should last for a little while!
While we’re here at The Tea Caddy shop, we thought we should mention the free Self-Guided English Tea Tour you can check out here during the Flower & Garden Festival! If you happen to visit the shop, you can ask a Cast Member for more information on the tour.
When you finish your self-guided tour, return to The Tea Caddy and let a Cast Member know you’re finished. After that, you can pick two free tea bags to take home.
During our visit, the shop was also giving away samples of peach tea!
The Queens Table — U.K.
Across the way, we found a fun little collection of corgi items by British designer Karen Mabon. The collection features this teal pajama set for $140…
… this purple oversized nightshirt for $160…

Most of these items are available in both purple and teal!
Lords and Ladies — U.K.
The U.K. pavilion is FULL of new merch! We spotted this straw sun hat with a pretty bow for $39.99.
Especially in a place like Florida, wearing a hat the blocks the sun makes a big difference!

EPCOT Construction Updates
Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind
Time for a Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind check-in! It looks like some weathering was added to the Nova Corps structure, as well as some other little details around the area.
We also saw some miniature little wall-like structures installed by the entrance to the attraction!
We’ll have to wait and see what these are for!
During our most recent visit, we found that the EPCOT Experience was totally closed.
The Connections Cafe has a new sign!
The sign was added across from the Creations Shop entrance. We can’t wait for this to open!
EPCOT Additional Updates
The Club Cool saga continues! Recently, the Russian Sprite was unavailable in Club Cool.
But now, it seems to be back again!
We’ll keep our eyes out to see if it sticks around.
Wandering Reindeer Shop — Norway
Did you know that there’s a tiny little hidden troll in the Wandering Reindeer shop?
He’s hiding up in the rafters! We love fun little details like this, don’t you?
