  • We saw the Hidden Mickey book in Germany when we visited mid July. Sure wish we could come back for the Food and Wine Festival!

  • Another photo report heavily skewed towards stuff to buy in the gift shops. Out of 28 total pictures there are 21 featuring gift shop items that’s 75%, looks like Tom is, or at least should be, working for Disney Marketing/Merchandising Department. There has to be more happening to report on at EPCOT than 2 closures, 2 signs for stuff that’s going to happen, and all that gift shop restocking.
