Greetings from EPCOT during another busy weekend! It’s another interesting day in the park, filled with both expected and unexpected events alike. From the reopening of Spice Road Table in the Morocco Pavilion to filming within the France Pavilion Expansion, there’s a lot to see, so let’s take a look.
Moving on to some of our unexpected finds for the day, these new cat and dog sock sets were found over at International Gateway — a fun gift for any Disney cat or dog lover.
At Mouse Gear, a surprising piece of merchandise made its return — these youth “Together Again!” shirts. The shirts were introduced, as part of a limited run, during the reopening of the Walt Disney World parks back in July. The shirts have been sold out — or so everyone thought — since shortly after the reopenings.
Similarly, the Play! Pavilion has had disturbingly little work related to its exterior in the recent weeks.
On the other hand, Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind is making steady progress, at least in the guest-facing facets. Over by the left-hand corner closest to the walkway, a new section of scaffolding has gone up.
Both Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind and Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure can’t come a moment too soon, as lines at EPCOT continue to grow with the small variety of attractions that are currently available. The line for Frozen Ever After stretched to the bridge between the China Pavilion and Refreshment Outpost today.
That line equated to a 120 minute wait for the most popular attraction in the park.
Innoventions East, on the other hand, has its continuing refurbishment ahead of it before the space can be used for more than a makeshift Mouse Gear location and Guest Relations.
Our last stop of the day, that temporary Mouse Gear location had a fairly long line of its own, forcing guests to wait outside due to capacity restrictions — both a result of COVID-19 as well as the location’s smaller size.
