Welcome to a beautiful day here at EPCOT. We’re here bright and early to check out the newly reopened Camera Center, which has also become the new Pin Traders location. We were excited to check out all of the changes.
Not only does the new Pin Traders location has tons of pins available, they also have future pins previewed in a “coming soon” display. There’s even a countdown series for the 20th Anniversary of Pin Trading Event coming to EPCOT summer of 2020.
Even more new 2020 merchandise is available inside the new Pin Traders and Camera Center. We spotted so much cute stuff, but the mug with the 2020 handle might be one of our favorites. There’s a lot more great 2020 merchandise around the parks, too.
There’s even a new limited release MagicBand.
The Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique exclusive MagicBand featuring the Fairy Godmother is also available from the new Pin Traders and Camera Center.
The Coach Disney Parks Designer Ears have been restocked at MouseGear.
We can get a tiny glimpse of the building for the Space 220 restaurant over the construction walls in the Mission: Space queue.
The new temporary Starbucks location has started to take shape quickly.
As we made our way into World Showcase, we came across Belle in her beautiful Christmas dress. Pere Noel was captivating guests with the story of Christmas, but we spotted Belle hanging out by herself in the background. Of course we stopped over to say hello. Madame Wardrobe did a lovely job on this dress and we appreciate all the details.
A quick trip over France shows us a little more of Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure and the rest of the expansion to the pavilion.
The Regal Eagle Smokehouse should be opening soon, but there is still work happening around the front of the building.
It’s starting to get busy around the booths now!
The line for Chip and Dale passholder magnets seems to fluctuate depending on the time and day. This afternoon, the line wrapped back and forth, but it seemed to be moving steady. Make sure you have your photo ID ready with your Annual Pass!
Before we head out, let’s take a loop on the monorail and check out the construction at the entrance.
There isn’t too much happening today. The fountain and walkways are still being prepped behind the walls.
Thanks for joining us today around EPCOT. This park is changing quickly, so be sure to keep following for the latest updates.
