With the 2022 Flower and Garden Festival in full swing, it’s been a busy few weeks in EPCOT!
A popular attraction closed in EPCOT last week, and we also noticed the arrival of Spring Break crowds. This week we tried some plant-based dishes and did some shopping too — where we found a (GASP!) $2,700 mask! Come along with us.
EPCOT Food Updates
We tried two new plant-based dishes at Sunshine Seasons, and while we REALLY enjoyed one dish, the other…was not our favorite. First up is the Jackfruit Gyro, which is made with jackfruit served with pickled onions, red peppers, fresh cucumbers, and tzatziki sauce on a pita. While we did enjoy the onions and cucumbers, that’s about all we liked. This dish is served cold, and we wished the jackfruit had more seasoning.
But we did enjoy the Vegetable Korma, which is made with plant-based chicken and cashews, peas, carrots, onions, and rice. While we didn’t love the plant-based chicken, we thought this dish had a great coconut curry flavor, and it was cooked well AND a good portion size!
Both of these plant-based dishes are $9.99 at Sunshine Seasons!

EPCOT Merchandise Updates
At Creations Shop, we spotted a fun new Suitcase Pin for $14.99.
The pin actually opens up to feature Mickey carrying a suitcase!

At Il Bel Cristallo in Italy, there was a huge Hand-Painted Elephant Mask, which we noticed featured a Klimt motif in the paint job. The price? A whopping $2,700.
United Kingdom Pavilion
At Sportsman’s Shoppe we found a Union Jack Mini Suitcase full of English cream toffees for $15.95.
Plush United Kingdom Mickey was also restocked! He costs $29.99.
Let’s make another pavilion stop — in Japan!
Mitsukoshi in Japan had new cups with sealable lids for $14.95 each. We spotted them in pink and yellow, and you don’t have to screw the lid on!
There’s one last stop to make.
And finally, at World Traveler, Plush United Kingdom Minnie was restocked for $29.99!

Can you get the vegetable korma without chick’n in it, or is it all pre-mixed? I HATE fake meat but am always up for a tasty veggie dish!
