PHOTO REPORT: EPCOT 5/11/21 (Points of Light Installed On North Side of Spaceship Earth, New Construction Walls In Morocco, Strawberry Funnel Cake Frappuccino, and More)

Greetings, World Travelers, and welcome to another hot day here at EPCOT! While this week was supposed to be cooler, we haven’t seen it yet, with temperatures in the mid 90’s today. Despite the heat, we came out to the park to see what new things we could find to show you today. Let’s get started!

We found Points of Light installed across the North side of Spaceship Earth, which is overtop of the Project Tomorrow building. We expect to see additional lights installed here soon.

The red and gold planet outside of Mission: SPACE appears to have had it’s damaged paint touched up. Previously, the top of the planet was chipped and pitted, with white showing through the paint in places.

Tents have been added to the front of the former fireworks viewing area in front of World Showcase Lagoon. Tents have been seen here in the past, and are rumored to be connected with testing for Harmonious.

We found all of the trash cans in EPCOT closed today. While the swinging doors were originally propped open as a safety precaution to reduce touch points when the parks reopened last year, they have now been returned to their original state.
