PHOTO REPORT: EPCOT 8/21/21 (Turtle Talk With Crush Officially Reopens, New Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary Spaceship Earth Themed Banners Pop Up, Dooney & Bourke ‘Beauty and the Beast’ MagicBand Debuts, Winnie the Pooh Celebrates His 100th Birthday, and More)
Good morning and welcome to a beautiful day at EPCOT! Today we’ll journey around this wonderful park and discover all of the latest happenings together. Let’s jump in!
We absolutely had to stop by and see Pooh Bear to wish him a very happy birthday! Believe it or not, our honey-loving friend turned 100 years old on August 21. We were very excited to see him celebrating by enjoying the beautiful day and attempting to catch some butterflies.
Today we spotted brand new Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary Celebration banners throughout World Showcase Plaza and lining the center walkway from Future World to World Showcase. These banners are unlike the previous ones we’ve seen, as they feature a pattern representing the iconic Spaceship Earth. They were also found inside of the park, which is not something we had seen until today.
It was “ever a surprise” to find this brand new Beauty and the Beast Dooney & Bourke MagicBand this morning at Pin Trading Headquarters. The design features characters such as Belle, Mrs. Potts, and Chip against a beautiful pastel blue background. It is currently available for $48.00.
Construction continues to race forward at Creations Shop and the reimagined Club Cool. We can’t wait to see guests’ reactions to the iconic Beverly soda, which is confirmed to return when Club Cool eventually opens.

We said hello to our favorite pair of sisters from Arendelle: Anna and Elsa!
It seems that Mitsukoshi has once again changed its operating hours. The popular store, located in the Japan Pavilion, is now available to guests Monday-Thursday from 2:00 PM to 9:00 PM and Friday-Sunday 3:00 PM to 10:00 PM.
We ‘squeaked’ in excitement when we found this adorable new EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival 2021 mug showcasing Remy from “Ratatouille!” This mug features the phrase “C’est Moi Le Chef” in front of some gorgeous artwork of Spaceship Earth. It is available at World Traveler for $19.99.
We finished our day by visiting the lovely Canada pavilion.
That brings us to the end of our day! We hope you enjoyed following us around EPCOT. Will you be swimming over to visit our favorite surfing sea turtle at Turtle Talk With Crush? Let us know in the comments below! We’ll “see ya real soon!”
