PHOTO REPORT: Epcot 4/26/19 (Paper Straws, New Merchandise, Construction Updates, ETC.)
Welcome to another beautiful Spring day and another WDWNT photo report, this time from Epcot. Let’s get started!
One of my favorite things to do every time I hit up Epcot, is wander over in front of the Wonders of Life pavilion and the old Energy Pavilion (current Guardians coaster construction site), because more often than not, you can spot a few bunnies hanging out on the grassy hills that surround the areas. Disney critters make me happy, and the bunnies are definitely the fairest of them all.
From the top of the monorail station, you’ll be able to get a pretty good view at this project as progress unfolds, but as of right now, it doesn’t look like to much has happened except the area being close off.
In the Land Pavilion, the turntable that usually rotates in the Garden Grill seemed to be broken. This isn’t an exceptionally unusual occurrence, and when this happens is usually when you see these plants put up around the entrance to the restaurant. I’m assuming it wouldn’t be a very pleasant experience dining at one of the tables in the front of the restaurant with no view but other guests walking by and staring as you chew.
The curtain is still up in front of the theater for the upcoming Awesome Planet feature, but when I walked by the rope was dropped. I resisted the urge to make a break for it, though.
The Butterfly Garden is consistently one of my favorite things to check in on my visits to Epcot during the Flower and Garden Festival. Its usually a hit-or-miss kind of situation on if you’re going to see a lot of butterflies, but today was definitely the best visit I’ve had this season.
In ImageWorks, at the exit of Journey into Imagination and the entrance to Epcot’s Disney Vacation Club lounge, a new line of Riviera Resort Merch has arrived.
