It’s here! The Taste of EPCOT International Festival of the Arts has kicked off for 2021 at Walt Disney World!
It’s 2021 and we’re still giddy to go into the parks every day, especially with the upcoming EPCOT International Festival of the Arts!
We’ve been tracking the gradual reopening of Disney World restaurants and, today, we noticed the Tutto Gusto Bar at EPCOT is open for grab and go service!
There’s a reason that EPCOT is often known as a foodie park…because there are SO MANY delicious food options!
Whether you’re heading to the American Adventure to get some barbecue, over to France for some yummy pastries, or stopping by Japan for some fun snacks in the Mitsukoshi store, there are snacks for every taste in the World Showcase. Now, another snack option has returned to EPCOT for a limited time, and it’s a big one for pizza fans!
Ah, Italy. A place of romance, beauty, and spaghetti.
We love to spot new MagicBands in and out if the Disney Parks. Seriously, talk about a functional accessory! We’ve recently spotted a bunch of new MagicBands online, including the Toy Story 25th Anniversary one, and now we’ve found a bellissimo new band in EPCOT’s Italy!
We spotted some cute new merch on our latest trip to EPCOT!
The 2020 EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays is officially underway. But in between trying all of our favorite festival eats and drinks, we also made some time to stop by the merchandise locations in the World Showcase to get a jump on our holiday shopping!
Who’s ready for a festive trip to EPCOT??
Hey there, DFB friends! We recently visited EPCOT to see what’s new since our last trip to the park, and we were greeted with a ton of new additions. So, without further ado, let’s dive into all of the latest food, merchandise, and construction updates in EPCOT!
As EPCOT gets some major changes, we get more excited about what’s to come each time we visit the parks!
And, the World Showcase is getting amazing new features from Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure to a gelato cart. However, we spotted THREE new shops that have opened in EPCOT’s France and Italy Pavilions for guests to find themed merchandise during their visit to the park.
Lately, we’ve seen many previously closed locations in Disney World start to reopen!
Kringla Bakeri og Kafe in the Norway Pavilion and Sommerfest in the Germany Pavilion of EPCOT have both now opened up full time. We visited Harambe Market in Disney’s Animal Kingdom this past weekend for it’s reopening, and ABC Commissary has come back to Hollywood Studios with an improved menu! Now, we’re also seeing gift shops returning to operation, and it seems that two stores in EPCOT’s Italy pavilion may be reopening this weekend!
Although the park is a HOT spot for construction right now, we’re narrowing our focus over to the Italy Pavilion! After construction walls popped up in the area, we’ve seen permits filed by the Pantina Restaurant Group for the “La Gelateria” Gelato Cart. Last year, we got a hint of what was to come with the announcement that the cart would have 12 different varieties of gelato and sorbet, including gluten-friendly and plant-based flavors.
