PHOTO REPORT: EPCOT 9/30/21 (‘Sea’ The Freshly Remodeled Manatee Rehabilitation Center at The Seas with Nemo and Friends, 2021 Belgium International Food and Wine Festival Booth, Star Wars Merchandise Lands at Creations Shop, and More)
Good morning from a gorgeous day here at EPCOT! We are less than 24 hours away from Walt Disney World’s 50th Anniversary Celebration, and we absolutely cannot wait. Today seemed to be the calm before the storm inside this park, but we found our fair share of surprises, so let’s jump in!
We dived down into The Seas With Nemo and Friends, where we discovered that the Manatee Rehabilitation Center had gotten quite the refurbishment! This updated area now matches the rest of The Seas’ light and dark blues color aesthetic. You can see many new signs and props informing guests about these wonderful creatures. Of course, Lou and Lil Joe are still center stage at home in their rehabilitation tank.
Take a look at this brand new baseball cap that beamed down over at Creations Shop! This denim hat features Princess Leia from Star Wars, with flowers adorning her iconic space buns and the phrase, “The future of the galaxy is female.”
Are you ready to blast off at Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind? You’ll be able to join Rocket Raccoon, Groot, and all of your other favorite galactic pals in this epic storytelling coaster in 2022!
We ventured into World Showcase to discover the menu and location for the upcoming Belgium EPCOT International Food and Wine Festival booth! We can’t wait to try all of the delicious dishes very soon.
Over at Northwest Mercantile, we found that the props dawning the outside of the building had once again been restored. These props have been missing for some time, and we’re happy to see them back in their proper place.
Alice wished guests a very merry unbirthday!
We discovered a new Tip Board had popped up over between the United Kingdom and France! This board features wait times throughout the park and even showcases the names of the brand new neighborhoods of EPCOT. This includes World Showcase, World Celebration, World Nature, and World Discovery.
Guests are squeaking in excitement for the opening of Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure! Although we were lucky enough to catch a sneak preview, the “Ratatouille” themed attraction will officially debut to all park guests tomorrow, October 1. But if you want to catch the action first, ride along with us right now!
A new Guest Experience Team station has been added over in France. Here Cast Members can assist guests with answers to questions, Disability Access Pass return times, and more.
We found the beautiful Belle stopping to smell the roses over in France.
Attention Pin Traders! We were able to catch a sneak peek at the upcoming Disney Heroes vs. Villains digital pin experience! If you want to take a look at the many heroic and devious pins from this upcoming event, check them out here!
It seems like we’ve come to the end of our day here at EPCOT. Thank you so much for adventuring around the world with us! How are you planning to celebrate Walt Disney World’s 50th Anniversary? Let us know in the comments below. Have a great day; we’ll “see ya real soon!”
