PHOTO REPORT: EPCOT 5/25/21 (EPCOT Monorail Signs Removed, Guardians of the Galaxy Exit Work, Farmers Feast Switches To Summer Menu, and More)
Greetings, World Travelers, from a hot but beautiful day here at EPCOT! We found some things to show you, particularly in the new snacks department, so let’s get started!
When we arrived at the entrance to the park, we saw that the signage to the EPCOT Monorail had been removed, and the connection points had been patched over. For more pictures and information, check out our article here.
At the construction site for Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, work has finally begun on the exit of the show building, with the framework for an awning now attached to the building. For more pictures and information, check out our article here.
At the entrance to the bridge leading to World Showcase, the strip of concrete we saw removed last week has been replaced, and a new strip has been removed and temporarily covered with painted wood.
Pavement work continues in the Morocco Pavilion as well, with this section recently replaced with this more rustic looking concrete.
Large sections of concrete outside of Spice Road Table are still scored, marking them for future removal.
Inside the Pavilion, we found the “Rally of the Gazelles” off today, but uncovered.
In the Mexico Pavilion, the “Coco” displays are finally on and working again after a long hiatus.
We found Jardin de Fiestas, the festival food food in the Mexico Pavilion, closed today. Nearby Cast Members did not know why it was closed or when it would reopen.
While visiting with Alice in the Tea Garden, we noticed that she had a new prop with her. A flower basket sat on a table nearby, and upon closer inspection contained a flower with a face.
The Farmers Feast festival food booth in World Showplace has transitioned over to their summer menu, which is their third and final seasonal menu to be offered here.
We tried out everything they had to offer, and quite enjoyed these new offerings! For more pictures and information, including our full review, check out our article here.
We also tried the Red Bean Ice Float available at Lotus Blossom Cafe for Asian Pacific American Heritage Month. For more pictures and information, including our full review, check out our article here.
We found a good amount of new merchandise today, starting with these new open edition pin sets featuring characters from animated classics “Oliver & Co.” and “Brother Bear”. These pins are available at Pin Traders for $15.99 each.
Next, we found a new face mask in plenty of time for all your July 4th needs in red, white and blue. This face mask is available at Mouse Gear in all four sizes and retails for $9.99.
Two shirts featuring Germany Pavilion artwork caught our eye today at Stein Haus. The short sleeve shirt retails for $24.99 and the long sleeve shirt retails for $44.99.
We found three International Flower & Garden Festival merchandise pieces redesigned today. First was this “Hello Sunshine” shirt, which replaces a similar shirt which had a breast pocket. This shirt is available at the Festival Marketplace in the Germany Pavilion for $29.99.
Next was this “Hello Sunshine” women’s shirt, which replaces a hi-lo shirt of the same design. This shirt is available at Port of Entry for $36.99.
Lastly, we found this women’s tank featuring Minnie Mouse, which replaces a tank of the same design that had a flower printed back with a bow. This tank is available (as is the original tank) at Port of Entry for $34.99.
We also found this Orange Bird mug, available at Port of Entry for $19.99.
We had a wonderful day at EPCOT, and we hope you enjoyed coming along with us. Have a magical day!
