I took a quick trip to Epcot one evening last week and I took a few newsworthy photos to share, so let’s see what’s new and exciting at WDW’s second gate:

I like the colder weather, so the 60 degree nights in Orlando lately have been wonderful

It looked like they were finally doing some work inside the former VISION House at Innoventions. Habit Heroes quietly closed 3 days after this photo was taken, completely unannounced.

With Innoventions West gone and now two exhibits closed in Innoventions East, we really need to wonder if this is the end of the exhibit space.

Innoventions West is slowly being converted to more and more meet and greet space, I can’t iamgine what they will do with Innoventions East at this rate.

I had dinner at KAtsura Grill in Japan, really one of the better counter service restaurants at Epcot.

The off season has begun, as you can tell by this picture was taken at 7:30PM

If you are looking for the old celebration buttons, they are still around at various merchandise locations, but you might want to hurry up before they are gone
