PHOTO REPORT: EPCOT 5/20/21 (Theming Added To Morocco Pavilion, Boardwalk Ice Cream Opens, New Flower & Garden Festival Merchandise, and More)

Hello from a beautiful day here at EPCOT! We had an exciting day here with lots to show you, so let’s get started!


Pavement work has become a common theme across all of the Walt Disney World parks, and EPCOT is no exception. Today we found a new strip of removed concrete temporarily patched with painted wood near the bridge into World Showcase.


Nearby, the new popcorn booth had been installed overnight behind the construction walls near the future Creations Shop and Club Cool. For more pictures and information, check out our article here.


The Morocco Pavilion has had additional theming added by way of new painted signage throughout the Pavilion.


While it seemed like progress was being made on the painting of the faux marble bridge in the Italy Pavilion, there seems to have been some regression as we found most of the bridge painted white today. Most of the bannisters are still painted to look like marble, but the other parts of the bridge are now white. We’ll be watching this area closely.


The Harmonious ring barge was undergoing testing again today, with it’s newly screen-covered arms moving slowly up and down.


The plexiglass dividers have been removed from Soarin’ Around The World, and guests are now being told to load onto the attraction while leaving a seat open in between their party and the next. For more pictures and information, check out our article here.


We found some new merchandise to show you today, starting with these two redesigned Flower & Garden Festival mugs. Both are available at Port of Entry and retail for $19.99 each.


While at Port of Entry, we found a new windbreaker Spirit Jersey featuring Orange Bird and the phrase “Hello Sunshine”. It retails for $59.99.


Heading over to Mouse Gear, we found a collection of “Cruella” inspired merchandise.


First was this fun dress made by Her Universe. The piece hanging to the left is a sheer swings up and clasps around the wearer’s neck. It retails for $129.99.


If you’d prefer something a bit more casual, we found this shirt, which retails for $39.99.


There was a Loungefly handbag and wallet coordinating set with embroidered accents available. The handbag retails for $80.00 and the wallet retails for $50.00.


Last but not least, there were these dog plush. The top plush retails for $24.99 and the bottom plush retails for $29.99.


Nearby at Disney’s Boardwalk, we found a newly revealed “Boardwalk Ice Cream” sign overtop of the former Ample Hills location, and found out that this new ice cream shop would be opening today.


We tried two sundaes on the new menu inspired by Beaches and Cream Soda Shop, and have a full review, as well as a look around the new location, for you check out here.


We had a wonderful day at EPCOT, and we hope you enjoyed coming along with us. Have a magical day!
