PHOTO REPORT: EPCOT 8/13/21 (Restroom and Locker Area Refurbishment Completed Near Spaceship Earth, New International Food & Wine Festival Booth Previews, and More)

Good morning and welcome to a bright and sunny day here at Walt Disney World’s beautiful EPCOT. Take a journey around the park with us today as we see just what all lies in store. Let’s jump in!

Entering the park this morning, we found that multiple construction walls had come down near Spaceship Earth. The restrooms and lockers, which were previously blocked off, are now open to guests once again. Fences that surrounded the plants in the area have been removed as well. One area of pavement still remains blocked, but besides this, it seems like refurbishment inside of the area is now completed.

We decided to take a look inside the recently reopened lockers and restrooms area.

In contrast to seeing walls removed near Spaceship Earth, today, we saw more fencing go up around the area near MouseGear. This fencing has been extended to cover almost all of the area surrounding the store, excluding the entrances and exits.

Planters have been removed near Creations Shop, which gave us a better look at the upcoming Lobster Landing and Mac & Eats booths coming to The 2021 EPCOT International Food and Wine Festival! We can’t wait to try the delicious dishes from these booths starting on October 1 of this year.

The Breezeway is currently in the process of being repainted throughout. This area will separate Creations Shop and Club Cool from the new quick-service restaurant and Starbucks, which will debut at a later date.

Get ready to blast off on Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind! Just not quite yet, as the upcoming attraction is still currently under construction. Today we saw a new, tiny structure pop up around the exterior of the building. It is currently surrounded by planters.

We started our journey around The World Showcase with a trip to the India International Food and Wine Festival Booth. This booth is not currently available to the public, but we happened to catch chefs offering guests free sample plates of some of the mouthwatering dishes that will be available when the booth does officially open. Today we were kindly offered Warm Indian Bread with Pickled Garlic, Mango Salsa, and Coriander Pesto Dips.

Traveling over to Japan, we found that Mitsukoshi was not available to guests at the time but was set to reopen later in the day at 3:00 p.m.

Crepes des Chefs de France was not offering confections today, as the booth was closed with windows blocked off from the inside.

I’ll be watching for your review on Oct 1st of the Lobster and Mac’n’cheese booths (as well as Belgium & Brazil’s booths)….especially since I’ll be in Epcot on Oct 2nd. Can’t wait (and we’ll be there earlier in the week, too, but those booths won’t be open yet). It’s nice you were able to get free samples at the India booth since they’re not open yet.
