I visited Epcot on Sunday afternoon and have some newsworthy photos from my trip to share with you today:

 

Welcome to Epcot

The now-pulled Epcot Starbucks mug was on shelves when I visited Sunday

And it was never seen again…

A mug with a different color monorail will eventually be made

If you look closely, you can see construction vehicles out behind The Land at Epcot, rumor has it additional Soarin’ theaters may be constructed

The “healthy” food cart between The Land and Imagination! recently got a new menu

In Canada, the Lumberjack show is making some modifications for a log rolling act

The seating area from Brazil at the Food and Wine Festival was kept as a nice spot for guests to relax

The new group in Morocco was out as I passed by

Some walls are up in the gardens in Japan

New Disney villains pins recently were released

Also, this really neat Dug pin

The front section of the Puffin’s Roost, which was once the Frozen meet and greet, is once again shop space

No visible progress on the Frozen attraction

The future site if the Frozen meet and greet building

Walls up outside of the Mexico pavilion for some reason

Several new shirts can be found at MouseGear

This Minnie Mouse shirt was in the men’s section, which might be a first

Kid’s shirts

Several new iPhone 6 cases were released, all in new, slimmer packaging

The old packaging can still be found

Figment iPhone 5 case

I’m not certain, but these princess pillows looked new

 

A new popcorn bucket featuring Test Track is now available

Log rolling? Really? No stereotype here.

The log rolling is really the only thing they could do to help this poor excuse for an act survive. If this doesn’t help it, I’m sure Disney will have no problem looking at other options, they had to at least give them a chance before calling off their contract.

Happy you got a purple monorailmug. I will get one with the new monorail color providing them don’t mess with the overall coloring – love the purple interior.

Why did they get rid of the Starbucks mug?

Purple Monorail was in that tragic crash with pink in which Monorail pilot Austin was killed. :( They’re being sensitive to the memory, although I think Austin loved his job so much, he would have gotten a kick out of everyone drinking from his monorail mug ;)

Thank you J. I knew about the monorail crash, I thought it was a tribute to the purple one.

I think the mug thing is a little hypersensitive…I just hope the new ones are out by April so I can buy one!
