Our latest photo report brings us to Epcot where a ton of new park-exclusive merchandise can be found. It is also a time of great change for the park, with Innoventions closing, construction in Mexico, and other projects around the park starting to take shape. Let’s take a look:
Muppet Mobile Labs
Muppet Mobile Labs is now wrapping up its one month stint at Epcot. It is likely to move to Disney’s Hollywood Studios, but there has been no official word as of yet.
Due to theft, limited edition pins are now being enclosed in glass cases at all store locations. This was unnecessary for the first 17 years of the hobby.
A ton of changes happened in MouseGear, with all of the merchandise being reorganized again. There is also a slew of new items for sale.
A variety of Tsum Tsum clothing is now available.
A new line of Epcot merchandise focusing on vintage logos and World Showcase was recently released. There is quite the variety of items available.
My personal favorite is this sweatshirt which features the original World Showcase logo icon with each country’s flag.
There is now a coaster to match the cup and plate featuring Spaceship Earth.
A new plush Figment hat for sale.
New shortbread cookies for sale, not sure why these are a thing but they are in most major stores now.
The Star Wars section has moved down to the other end of the store.
Moana merchandise was recently released at the parks.
The Maps of the Disney Parks book is available in MouseGear.
The LEGO Cinderella Castle is back in stock now.
The Canada pavilion recently started selling merchandise for the Le Cellier restaurant downstairs. You can see photos of the entire line in a separate post from a few weeks ago.
The Margaritas Strike Back
A new Margarita stand and a food stand are supposedly being constructed on the opposite side of the Mexico pavilion.
Walls are up on both sides leading us to believe it could be two stands.
VISA Character Meet and Greet
The new Disney VISA Cardmember Exclusive meet and greet recently opened at the Imagination pavilion. It is open daily from 1 PM until 7 (yeah, seven) PM.
Colortopia remains the last functioning piece of Innoventions.
Both sides, east and west, are now boarded up.
Goodbye Epcot, see ya’ real soon!
