PHOTO REPORT: EPCOT 1/7/20 (New Character Meet and Greet Locations, Temporary MouseGear, O Canada Spirit Jersey, Ducks, and More)

Welcome to a very busy day here at the ever-evolving EPCOT. There is a lot to do today, so there’s no time to waste. Let’s check out the new temporary MouseGear.

For being a temporary location, it’s pretty cute, and still maintains a lot of the themed displays and shelves from the original. We’ve seen the concept art for the remodeled MouseGear, and it’s going to take some getting used to. We will hold onto the memories. You can see a full photo and video tour of the old location here. Grab the tissues.

We noticed the sign, which was incorrect yesterday, was still covered.

Many of our character friends have moved around, including the big cheese, Mickey Mouse himself. Mickey has received a nice, new location inside the Disney and PIXAR Short Film Festival near the Imagination! Pavilion.

Joy from Inside Out is meeting inside ImageWorks, across from Ralph and Vanellope. Joy lost her old home, but luckily she was given her own Imagination Land themed meet and greet location. Sadly, Sadness and Baymax weren’t so lucky to be moved to new homes. We’ll miss them both.

Even more characters have moved to new meet and greet locations, and you can find out all the details here.

Sunshine Seasons has a giant sign advertising their bacon cheeseburger. You can’t miss this sign.

A new gray “O Canada” Spirit Jersey has arrived for $64.99.

The sleeves are really fun.

Has anybody else written 2019 instead of 2020 yet? Stitch is here to remind you of the new year!

The origami inside Japan is so cute. That Spaceship Earth is amazing.

The Festival of the Arts is coming. We’re looking forward to the Disney on Broadway performances.

The Regal Eagle Smokehouse is still under construction. The side of the building is still open and the sign needs to be hung as well as many other finishing touches. We just can’t wait for Sam Eagle and his barbecue!

Our feathered friends were swimming around Germany.

It’s sunny, but there’s a nice chill in the air. It’s a perfect day to be here.

That’s about all for our journey around the world today. Thanks for following us around EPCOT and stay tuned for more updates!

It looks like Jesus is endorsing the Regal Eagle Smokehouse as well. It must be heavenly BBQ.
