PHOTO REPORT: Epcot 11/30/18 (Santa Figment, Guardians, Skyliner, Ratatouille, New Nighttime Show, ETC.)

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.

Work also continues on the new space-themed restaurant coming to the area behind Mission Space.

As you can see, it has gone vertical.

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.

The Skyliner is coming along well. There are no cables up yet connecting the poles like there are at Hollywood Studios, but there seems to be considerable progress on the station.

There is also a delicious new seasonal Krengla in the Norway Pavilion. It’s peppermint flavored!

At Mouse Gear, the 2018 Holiday gift cards with free pins have arrived.

Santa Figment has also arrived for the holidays inside of MouseGear.

The Germany Train Garden now features Festival of the Holidays banners.

The Maple Bacon funnel cake is no longer offered in the American Adventure pavilion (RIP).

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!

If a ride ever needed a holiday overlay its the current Figment ride. It could not be worse. They could also replace the Pixar DVD shorts with holiday ones
