PHOTO REPORT: EPCOT 4/21/21 (EPCOT Center Drive Painting Prep, New Figment MagicBand, New PhotoPass Experience, and More)

Hey everyone and welcome to our trip to the EPCOT on the day before Earth Day! That being said, let’s give you all a tour and update you on all the changes that we see.

00_epcotcenterdr_042121-6796187

EPCOT Center Drive is finally getting the treatment with the weather allowing workers to properly prepare Minnie for her new background.

02_sselights_042121-4437028

Work continues on Spaceship Earth’s points of lights and thought we would give you an extra close look at the lights being installed.

04_msalice_042121-7358669

We found Alice talking to the flowers and greeting guests from a safe distance.

05_guardians_042121-3866212

No changes could be seen in Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind. We can only assume that most of the work is going on inside and on the grounds where the walls are blocking our view.

06_randomconcrete_042121-2323987

Another random piece of concrete was being worked on by the bird feeders. This seems to be a new trend for Walt Disney World as the resort prepares for its 50th Anniversary.

07_harmonious_042121-7894857

No visible changes to Harmonious today, but workers are hard at work continuing the progress on the barges. Sadly, no fountain testing today.

08_threecaballeros_042121-3337271

The Three Caballeros are still as flat as an old-school platform game. We just want to know, when will they return?!

Most of the outdoor flooring in the France Pavilion seems to be done, besides a few wood pieces waiting for their permanent replacements.

10_flowerandgardenmagicband_042121-7264657

Over at Port of Entry, we found a new limited edition 2021 Flower and Garden Magic Band. For a better look at it and more information, check out our article.

11_newitalatyphotopass_042121-3470241

If you head over to the Italy Pavilion, there is a new fun Disney Photopass experience to remember the festival.

12_italybridge_042121-8346301

Over at the bridge, all of the blocks have been removed showing off the new molds left behind. Here’s a good example of the unpainted molds versus the finished ones.

13_refillsallowed_042121-1151145

We found out that Regal Eagle Smokehouse is another location allowing guests to fill and refill their own beverages. If you haven’t read the article already check it out here as we first found out about this new policy change.

14_moroccobathroom_042121-5713394

As we follow with our usual path, the Morocco Pavilion bathrooms are still being worked on.

15_newdooropeners_042121-2293139

We finish the day at Mouse Gear with these new door opener keychains in both gold and rose gold tones. We’re not sure if Minnie comes in rose gold like Mickey as it may have sold out before we got back.

Well, that’s all for today! Tune in next time for more changes from the site that brings it to you first, WDWNT.
