PHOTO REPORT: EPCOT 12/25/19 (Heavy Holiday Crowds, New EPCOT Pavilion Logo Pins, Merchandise Price Increases, and More)

Good morning from a very busy EPCOT park! The day started off stormy, but cleared up quickly. I guess that’s just good old Disney magic for ya! Let’s see what all is going on in the park today.

First, here’s a shot of those crowds. Today they held everyone outside of the MagicBand touchpoints until exactly 9:00am.

We went to check the price for this “Red” tagged item, we consulted one of the handy color coded charts and saw a price change… in the form of a new price taped over the old price. This price change brought “Mint” labeled magnets and keychains to $9.99.

But on the next stand over the pricing was unchanged. Hmm… We’re not sure what to make of this, but will let you know if we see any further changes.

Over in the France pavilion expansion, all looks pretty quiet. No big updates or progress on the area for Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure and La Crêperie de Paris.

Regal Eagle 12/23/19 1

At the soon-to-open Regal Eagle Smokehouse restaurant location, we spotted new glass window panes for the pick-up and ordering windows. We can’t wait till this place opens!

It would have been nice if we could have seen the front of the Mickey clip. And you found a broken piece of sidewalk. So what?
