Hello from EPCOT during the second-to-last weekend before Christmas! We’ve got a busy start to this Saturday, with the return of a gift shop in Morocco now that Disney has taken over, the looming presence of a Harmonious barge in World Showcase Lagoon, as well as some new merchandise around the park. Let’s check out all of the happenings at EPCOT.
Conversely, one water feature that actually adds value to the park but has no resources given to it, the largest fountain within the Imagination Pavilion was off and mostly drained yesterday, giving us hope that it may be receiving some much-needed maintenance. Unfortunately, today we found the fountain operating normally and in the same shape as it was previously — which is to say bad shape.
Work is also happening over in Canada, though much more minor in the form of refurbishment work to a section of stairs in the pavilion.
Finally, the France Pavilion Expansion shows the greatest amount of progress, and today we observed Remy’s Courtyard fountain in full operation. Recently, a merchandise kiosk was added as well as other small aesthetic details.
Elsewhere in the France Pavilion, some things were not operating quite as intended.
At the nearby World Traveler shop within the International Gateway area, some colorful new 2021 youth apparel made its debut.
Wrapping up our day, additional new “Fröhliche Weihnachten” Christmas merchandise has joined the initial collection of items within the Germany Pavilion. These items included an apron, tea towels, and a wooden ornament.
Thanks for coming along on our worldly adventures today at EPCOT! To stay up-to-date with all of the most recent happenings from Walt Disney World, be sure to download WDWNT: The App 2.0 for notifications on all of the major news from the parks.
