Earlier this week, we brought you a photo update from Magic Kingdom, featuring some new merchandise, construction updates, and more. Today, we’ll travel to Epcot to take a look at what’s new around the park!
We’ll start in Future World where the Guardians of the Galaxy attraction is well underway and construction continues on the old Ellen’s Energy Adventure building, as well as the new show building structure.
Moving into the World Showcase, a new and fairly large structure has been placed in the lagoon to help with preparations for the two new nighttime shows coming soon to Epcot. It can be seen best from the China pavilion.
In France, work continues on Ratatouille. Much of the France Pavilion has been walled off to make room for construction on the main entrance of the attraction.
Work also continues on the walkway that will take guests to the new attraction, restrooms, and Crepe restaurant.
In the Germany gift shop, some fun Holiday-themed steins have arrived (with a hefty price tag of $135).
Finally, in Japan, 2019 calendars have arrived featuring Hello Kitty, Gudetama, and dogs. Additionally, the Otamatone has arrived in Japan’s gift shop. This could be the most random and useless instrument concept I’ve ever heard. But for $80 for the large one and $40 for the smaller one, this piece of modern Japanese culture (for lack of a better term) can be yours.
That concludes this Epcot update. We look forward to keeping you up to date on all the latest construction, merchandise, and more throughout the rest of 2018 and into the new year!
