If “por favor manténgase alejado de las puertas” is a part of your normal Disney vocabulary, then you’ll be excited to find that the EPCOT monorail has officially returned! We hopped aboard this morning, so make sure to check out the video of our journey here.

Inside Future World, we found that even more new trashcans have been added. This time they come in a shade of green to represent “World Nature.” Some of these cans feature the recently debuted contactless design, while others take a more classic approach. We recently saw the addition of new red “World Discovery” trashcans as well.

Restaurant Marrakesh has recently opened it’s doors as a sanctuary to guests looking to take a break from the heat. Though no food offerings are currently available, it’s still a great place to cool down during your trip around the world.

Inside Canada, we found that Trading Post Refreshments & Northwest Mercantile have reopened! These locations have not been operable since March of 2020. We were happy to take a look around at all of the flannel-filled merchandise.
