Today was the official close of Taste of EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival 2021. We will miss seeing our favorite character topiaries around the park, at least until next year!

We decided to take one last stroll around The Goodness Garden Butterfly House Presented by GoGo squeeZ® at Future World West before saying goodbye for this year. Two of the butterflies even landed on our camera strap!

Over at MouseGear, we found a brand new Minnie Ear Loungefly Backpack. This accessory even has special straps on the inside that allow you to attach your favorite pair of ears and proudly display them! The outside is covered with small monochromatic Minnie ear designs, and it is now available for $75.

Over in Morocco, we found Princess Jasmine greeting guests at her brand new meet & greet area! You can now chat with the princess and take (physically distanced) photos with her atop the stage inside of the pavilion.

Also, in Morocco, we saw the return of a popular Photopass location. You can now take photos in the gorgeous Moroccan courtyard area, which very recently reopened after undergoing refurbishment. We also saw the reopening of Race Against The Sun, but it was closed again today for unknown reasons.

We will greatly miss the beautiful musical stylings of Carol Stein and the full lineup of other talented pianists inside the World Showplace Pavilion.
