Welcome to another beautiful day at Epcot! Since the park is currently between festivals, this is the perfect time to visit.

We started our day with a quick check on the construction for Guardians of the Galaxy.

There are new Farewell Illuminations phone cases in a variety of sizes. The Figment is a Passholder case. The 3D case is $34.99, and the other two cases are $29.99 each.

We found an interesting new light-up toy in Future World. It lights up and the fans spin to create spinning patterns with the colored lights. These are $17 and oddly mesmerizing.

Another favorite souvenir in the parks are bubble wands. This Ariel sitting in a clamshell bubble wand is pretty cute for $25.

This Alice in Wonderland Mad Tea Party mug is a must-have. It’s $19.99, and looks like 3 cups stacked together with one handle. There are so many cute details and colors on this mug.

Now for a quick snack break. Time to refill my new popcorn bucket with the flavored popcorn options near the Imagination Pavilion. One of the best popcorn carts ever.

Now it’s time to take on the world. Looking in the distance, the go away green building really blends into the background.

Not much is going on here in the parks today. You can see Frozen Ever After has a relatively low wait time.

There are still scrims around the deck in Mexico.
