Greetings from EPCOT. It’s a cloudy morning, but we’re hoping the rain holds off today. Let’s get started.

Taste Track isn’t open yet, but we have a feeling it has got to open very soon. Tables are now lining the pathway across from the playground area, just behind Cool Wash.

The festival booths typically open at 11 AM, but a few booths have opened early. Honey Bee-Stro and Citrus Blossom have been opening earlier than the other booths because they have two popular items: Spike the Bee and Orange Bird sipper cups. As of 10 AM, there was no line and you could walk up and grab a sipper with no wait (and of course we grabbed a cheesecake, too).

There’s some strange paint happening on the side of the Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind.

As we look to the roof, we spot some new progress on the solar panel mounts.

There’s also a coat of fresh paint around the entrance of Mission: SPACE. There are some new peach and pink colors along the walls.

MouseGear isn’t looking so good. You can now see through the building.

Over in France, things are coming along nicely. We recently spotted the additions on the park map, so we’re excited to see so much progress. Those restrooms are looking nice!

America’s Funniest Home Videos was in the park looking for a volunteer voting audience. Guests who participate in the voting are also giving a free shirt as a thank you.

We stopped into Cool Wash to grab a pina colada slush with gummies! It doesn’t exactly taste like pina colada, but it’s cold and sweet.

Well, that’s all for this trip around EPCOT. We’ll be back again soon to check on all the construction and festival happenings around the park, so stay tuned!
