PHOTO REPORT: EPCOT 2/28/21 (Second Set of “Harmonious” Ring Arms Added, Ongoing Flower & Garden Festival Prep, World Celebration Progress, and More)
Greetings from EPCOT on the final day of February, as we usher out the month, the previous festival, and apparently wintertime as a whole. We’re only a few days away from the start of Taste of EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival, so naturally the preparations for that have ramped up. Meanwhile, World Showcase Lagoon continues to fill up with more barges for Harmonious, making for an interest time of transition for the storied park.
While Innoventions West has demolition, World Showcase Lagoon has had many (questionable) additions. After the centerpiece ring barge was added yesterday, the third section of the huge central structure was added, bringing with it two more arms for the centerpiece.
The first set of arms was put into place Friday, ahead of the ring structure being joined to it.
Out near the Imagination Pavilion, Winnie the Pooh is anxiously waiting for the butterflies to arrive so he can catch them.
Inside the pavilion, the variety of Figment merchandise has become unusually narrow, especially when it comes to apparel.
On the outskirts of the former Innoventions Plaza, the purple martins were out and about enjoying the warmth today.
Nearby, flowers are planted and ready to welcome signage for the Taste of EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival. This planter is home to displays for all of the festivals throughout the year.
For no particular reason, we decided to explore the Canada Pavilion a little more today. The pavilion has a beautiful waterfall and some of the best gardens of World Showcase.
The JAMMitors also perform, at least for the time being, in the Canada Pavilion on the Mill Stage.
In International Gateway, this single butterfly topiary welcomes guests with World Showcase Lagoon in the background.
That’ll do it for our trip to EPCOT today. Be sure to stay tuned to WDWNT.com all week long for all of our reviews, photos, and details from the debut of the 2021 Taste of EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival!
