PHOTO REPORT: EPCOT 3/18/21 (World Drive Archway Painting, More In-Park Filming, Paper Cranes, Distanced Goofy and Pluto, and More)
Welcome to a wonderful, yet windy day in our community of tomorrow. The theme park was not as shockingly not as jammed-packed as we were expecting it to be; let’s head to EPCOT!
We started our day grabbing this great view of the World Drive sign being painted. Just so you all know we didn’t stop to take this and we suggest never photographing while driving unless you have a passenger to take the show for you with a brand new polarized lens filter.
Into the park we go as we see workers still working on the Harmonious centerpiece ring. With so much this thing can do, we honestly can’t wait to see it finished to see what it’s capable of.
On our journey around the World Showcase, we caught some more filming being done.
Well, we may not recognize him, but we do know who this fancy lady is, probably the star of this filming, just waiting for her turn.
The Morocco Pavilion bathrooms are still down for the count, but at least we have new bathrooms in France.
Speaking of the France Pavilion, continued touch-ups are being done in the area, including some painting. Make sure to watch out for these signs as paint marks are probably not a souvenir you want to bring home with you.
Nothing really new is going on outside Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure, but we did think you’d enjoy the view — consider it a fun way to countdown the days till it finally opens.
In the Japan Pavilion, cast members running Kidcot were giving away folded paper cranes, and we’re remembering the good times when international employees once ran it. We miss them greatly and feel EPCOT isn’t complete without them and can’t wait for their safe return.
Finally, we caught Goofy and Pluto once again at the new distanced character meet and greet by Spaceship Earth, we didn’t get to see anymore after this with winds picking up. Probably a good thing not wanting to see our favorite mice getting blown away like Mary Poppins. Anyways, that’s all for today, tune in tomorrow for our next photo report, same bat time, same bat place.
