PHOTO REPORT: EPCOT 1/28/20 (New Walkway Opens, Section of Future World East Walkway Revealed, More “Oh Boy!” Merchandise and More)

Greetings, world travelers! Welcome to EPCOT, a place now know for its ever-changing construction walls. Let’s see what’s going on at the park today.

Immediately, we noticed construction walls now stretch to the entrance of the old MouseGear location, blocking guests from walking through.

A new walkway has opened across from the current MouseGear location and loops around the old one, giving guests easier access to World Showcase. 

Right beside MouseGear, a small section of the Future World East walkway has opened, giving us an up-close look at Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind.

With all of this talk of MouseGear, let’s see what we can find inside. There seems to be a slow trickle of “Oh Boy!” merchandise making its way into the parks. We found this pen set that includes six pens featuring vintage versions of the Fab Five. It’s $17.99.

If you need a notebook to go along with your “Oh Boy!” pens, here’s one. The blue and white striped front cover shows Mickey and friends posing.

The inside of the cover has multicolored Mickey silhouettes.

The pages have Mickey and Pluto on the corners.

If you flip the journal over, there’s a different back cover. It’s says “Oh Boy!” in giant colorful block letters, and tiny images of Mickey and pals fill the background.

The inside of this cover has multicolored stripes made up of each character’s name.

The journal pages for this side feature Goofy and Donald. The journal retails for $19.99.

Yesterday’s rain slightly smudged the “Frozen” chalk art photo op.

The Disney Skyliner’s EPCOT line experienced some downtime. The other two Skyliner lines were operating normally. 

The France pavilion was especially photogenic this morning. 

This sneaky Abu is nestled back in the twisting corners of the Morocco pavilion. Other animated character decals have been added to buildings throughout the World Showcase as part of Festival of the Arts .

Work continues at Regal Eagle Smokehouse: Craft Drafts & Barbecue in The American Adventure. Posts for the outdoor barbecue pit have been uncovered.

We’re still waiting for signage to appear.

This gorgeous John Coulter designer ears headband was released today. We found them at the WonderGround booth in the Germany pavilion. Oh, and thanks for the smiles, Cast Members!
