Hello from EPCOT on what, unlike yesterday’s damp experience, is a lovely day at Walt Disney World. We’re here for the first weekend of the 2021 Taste of EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival, which began this past Wednesday. We’re also going to be heading to Disney’s Hollywood Studio for a new sweet treat that we simply couldn’t get at EPCOT.
First off — and admittedly, this isn’t inside one of the parks we’re visiting today, but does involve an attraction that is — The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror billboard on World Drive finally has motion again! While it may not seem like a big deal, fans of the ride or Disney’s old-school marketing will appreciate this repair.
At the Imagination Pavilion, we were excited to report that the jumping fountains were once again in action, though unfortunately that wasn’t the case today. We’re hopeful this is a result of cooler, windy weather, and not reversing course on bringing the fountains back.
Heading around to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance was experiencing some of its signature downtime. The attraction’s recent performance, however, suggests things have been a bit more stable overall for the flagship ride.
While waiting on your transport to fight the First Order, Chewbacca is on hand to offer his support.
In Toy Story Land, we’ve noticed a little bit of work on the future home of Roundup Rodeo BBQ, with some roof edging now in place on the nondescript structure.
Our prize, however, was off of Sunset Boulevard at Hollywood Scoops, in the form of this peanut butter chocolate milkshake. Be sure to check out our review to find out whether this dessert was merely a looker, or if it had the substance to back it up.
We finished up our visit to Disney’s Hollywood Studios with an appearance of the Pixar Motorcade as it rolled up Hollywood Boulevard, where Green Army Men and Buzz Lightyear were more than happy to entertain us — both musically and, in Buzz’s case, merely with his presence.
We hope you’ve enjoyed our time at two of the four Walt Disney World parks today. Be sure to visit WDWNT.com daily (or more!) for all of the latest news from Walt Disney World and every other Disney park.
