It seems that every other day Disney World is extending park hours!
Today, we’ve got good news for those of you visiting from February 28th to March 13th, because park hours have been extended on select days in ALL four parks!
One of the biggest things that was missing was the Eat to the Beat Concert series. The concerts were unfortunately canceled for last year’s Festival. Also, other similar events at EPCOT’s festivals — like the Disney on Broadway Concert Series that usually takes place at the International Festival of the Arts — have not taken place since the parks reopened after the COVID-19 closures. The 2021 Food and Wine Festival is still several months away and we really haven’t gotten details about it yet. But, we have found something that might give us a clue about the future of the Eat to the Beat Concerts at this year’s Festival!
The 2021 Taste of EPCOT International Festival of the Arts is officially OVER, and you know what that means — the 2021 EPCOT International Flower and Garden Festival is right around the corner!
One of the biggest post-closure changes visible to guests when they travel to Disney World these days are the plexiglass dividers on rides. Over time, some rides have these barriers installed, like on Rise of the Resistance and Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway, to increase the ride’s capacity. Other rides, particularly fast-moving ones, originally opted instead to load every other row to allow for physical distancing.
Wow… it’s been a minute since we have seen much of a change in the offerings at EPCOT’s Refreshment Outpost.
Oh, sure, the spot serves up fun seasonal selections to go along with the current EPCOT Festival. But the regular eats here? We’re usually talking hot dogs, frozen slushies, and vanilla and chocolate soft-serve. You know, the basics. But today we spied a NEW option on the soft-serve menu that we had to check out!

We spotted a discount in EPCOT today!
Since the International Festival of the Arts ended yesterday, we took a trip to the park today to check out some unique merchandise and try some snacks. And while we were in the China Pavilion’s House of Good Fortune buying wasabi chips, we noticed a discount on our receipt!
The Taste of EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival will be starting in just a few days and the park is already getting ready!
Some topiaries are already up in the park and the Festival’s new prehistoric garden is already available for everyone to see. Today, while we were at EPCOT we also spotted a NEW park map themed to the upcoming festival!
