PHOTO REPORT: EPCOT & Disney’s Animal Kingdom 9/22/21 (Primeval Whirl Demolition, KiteTails Character Banners Soar, Multiple Spaceship Earth Animatronics Still Missing, and More)
Buenos días, Ohayō, or simply good morning from Walt Disney World’s beautiful EPCOT! Get ready to travel around the world with us and discover all of the newest happenings! Then hop over to Disney’s Animal Kingdom and join us as we adventure through it’s many lands. Let’s jump right in and see just what today has in store for us!
We started off our day with a trip around the EPCOT Monorail, where we had a birds eye view of all of the ongoing construction inside of the park. Although we’ve seen the opening of Creations Shop and The Re-imagined Club Cool recently, many areas of the park are still walled off and being prepared for the future.
We decided to hit the all new Creations Shop, where we found some creative new merchandise! These 3 new Rainbow Disney Collection pins featuring the Transgender, Bisexual, and Lesbian pride flags are now available for $9.99 each.
It was a beautiful day in World Showcase.
Fastpass+ is soon to be a thing of the past at EPCOT. All signage has been officially removed from attractions and replaced with Lightning Lane logos, with the exception of Frozen Ever After. We are incredibly sad to say goodbye to this beloved system.
Snow White happily greeted guests in Germany.
We found that The American Heritage Gallery was not welcoming guests today inside of the America Pavilion. According to Cast Members, this display of cultural history will reopen on September 25th.
We trekked over to Disney’s Animal Kingdom and set off to have a wild time!
It seems that Primeval Whirl is officially facing complete extinction. Demolition has started at the Dinoland U.S.A. attraction, and set pieces have started to be removed. Perhaps the biggest removal being the the final “time travel” archway, which could formerly be seen at the top of the hill, but is now lying on the ground.
We’re sad to say goodbye to all of our prehistoric pals!
There was definitely some monkey business going on!
Speaking of monkey business, we found Rafiki and Timon palling around!
Lightning Lane has struck down over at DAK too, where today we found new signage at Kilimanjaro Safaris and Expedition Everest.
That brings us to the end of our day here at Walt Disney World! How do you feel about Primeval Whirl’s impending extinction? Were you a fan of this explosive attraction, or are you happy to see it go? Let us know in the comments below! Have a great day everyone! I guess we’ll…
