We started off our day by taking a trip on the EPCOT monorail line, where we got some great views of the ongoing construction around the park.

We journeyed over to The Seas with Nemo & Friends, where we were greeted by a pleasant surprise. We found Mickey Mouse scuba diving with all of his fishy friends while also taking photos and interacting with guests. We’ve seen Mickey taking a dip here once before on World Oceans Day, and we were very happy to see him return. We hope to see Scuba Mickey again in the future.

We decided to get a more grounded look at the construction progress for the upcoming Creations Shop and re-imagined Club Cool.

Today we found the unveiled menu for the upcoming 2021 EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival booth, Mac & Eats! This booth did not debut at the start of the festival, but you’ll be able to try these tasty treats starting October.

Today we found that The Breezeway is now being painted. This area will separate Creations Shop and Club Cool from the new quick-service restaurant and Starbucks, which are set to open at a later date.

We started our journey around World Showcase with a visit to The Garden Railway in Germany! This tiny German village seems to be celebrating The EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival as well! You can now see miniature banners displaying art for the festival throughout the tiny town.
