Checking in on Creations Shop once inside, we saw more exterior repair and painting continuing, and another look inside at the cool CommuniCore style lighting fixtures that will be around the shop.

Working back around towards Test Track to check in on Guardians of The Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind progress, the exterior facade also progresses with more roofing and work on the exit.

Deciding we would rather cool off than wait in line, we moved over to two of the Joffrey’s Coffee & Tea Company locations outside of Mission: SPACE and the promenade in World Showcase to try two of their four new drinks exclusive to the festival. Read our thoughts on these cool coffees here!
