PHOTO REPORT: Epcot 4/20/19 (World Showcase Construction Updates and Beautiful Spring Weather!)

It’s a beautiful morning here at Epcot. It’s the kind of weather than can make you ignore the outrageous Easter week crowds. Almost. Let’s see what’s going on today.

Flowers and Gardens

Have you done the “Eggstravaganza” scavenger hunt yet? It’s a lot of fun. The Figment egg is the best egg, I’d say.

There’s nothing much better on a beautiful day than admiring the flowers and gardens of the Flower and Garden Festival. We’re about halfway through the Festival, but there’s always plenty to see. Buzz looks like he’s ready to do some coloring with those giant crayons.

Just across the way, Bo Peep has her playground set up for the little ones.

What are the odds this monkey used to be in Pixar Place?

Over in the Odyssey building, among the Flower and Garden merchandise, are some gardening tips!

This one explains how to make a floating flower pot like those in the waters outside. There are a handful of displays like this in there.

There’s a big ol’ crane on the horizon. This one is for the upcoming and yet-to-be named space-themed restaurant.

The addition is mostly just a concrete block at this point. Not much to see from on-stage. The crane is proof that they’re working hard on it though.

Over in The Land, the Garden Grill seems to be hiding behind a forest of potted trees. I wasn’t sure why until I realized: the turn-table seems to be broken. I guess when the rotating restaurant doesn’t rotate, it’s best to just hide it from public view until it’s fixed.

We found this new Stitch T-shirt for adults in Mouse Gear. It’s pretty cute!

Over in France, not a whole lot has changed at the “Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure” site since our last update. The facade is a lot more yellow and a few more steel beams have gone up. It’s slow work, but we’re finally seeing results.

I did get this picture of just beyond the construction fence near the front of the France pavilion. You can see the work they’re doing on the pathway that will lead to the new courtyard. There used to be a big wall back here.

Over at the International Gateway, a temporary park entrance has popped up while construction happens nearby. You can read our full coverage of the project here.

If they do too much work, they might have to re-paint this canvas. Or maybe they’ll leave it up for posterity.

The American Adventure still has some ongoing concrete work near its front doors.

Hopefully they keep the bricks.

Japan’s new restaurant still seems to have quite a way to go. New scrims are up making it harder to see what’s going on.

We’re still not sure what part of the building this will be, but it’s probably just the main entrance/facade. Hopefully they put in a new garden as well. Japan’s gardens are some of my favorites.

Japan is also one of my favorite pavilions. Especially before noon, when nobody is here yet.

It’s just so beautiful.

Well, that’s all from Epcot for today! Make sure you drop by before the Flower and Garden Festival is over. There’s a ton of stuff to see.

  1. Hasnt the turntable been broken awhile now? Seem to remember hearing that a few weeks ago.
