Greetings people of EPCOT, Epcoters, Epcotians, citizens of EPCOT! We are here today on the hunt for all new things we can find. The Florida Blue Medicare lounge is opening today and we plan on checking it out. Let’s get started!
This is the same Annual Passholder magnet that was available in March 2022 at Disney Springs. Passholders that previously picked up the magnet in March 2022 are not eligible for another one. There is no virtual queue set up for this magnet. Each Annual Passholder must be present and show their valid Annual Pass card or Disney MagicMobile pass and government-issued photo ID to receive a magnet.
A new Mickey Mouse and friends comic stainless steel water bottle has arrived in Creations Shop at EPCOT.
The Mickey Mouse: The Main Attraction ear headband Peter Pan’s Flight has soared into EPCOT. These ears are number 6 in a series of 12 monthly releases. This ear headband is limited release and features the moonlight skies and the second star to the right from Peter Pan’s Flight. The ear headband also features an embroidered Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary logo.
More Halloween merchandise is arriving in the parks. In Creations Shop we found two new mischievous Stitch Halloween magnets.

The Florida Blue Medicare Lounge is inside the temporarily closed Restaurant Marrakesh in EPCOT’s Morocco Pavilion. To access the Florida Blue Medicare lounge, you must be a Florida Blue Member. You can sign up online or they have a QR code at the entrance to sign up when you arrive.
There is plenty of seating available and complimentary drinks including, Spa Water, cold brew coffee, and Moroccan mint tea.
Each Florida Blue member is handed a cooling towel when they enter the lounge. They also offer free henna tattoos, and watercolor artists at different times throughout the day. There is also a limited number of wristbands available for the Eat to the Beat Concert with reserved seating for Florida Blue members.
A new Canada mug from “The Great Outdoors” collection is now available in the Canada Pavilion at Northwest Mercantile. This mug features Mickey Mouse fishing on the back of the mug. You can see the entire collection here.
It was time for some lunch so we decided to try the pepperoni pizza from Connections Eatery. The pizza has changed since the last time we tried it. Previously, the pizza was one large slice with a side salad. Now you receive two slices of pizza and it seems like there is more bang for your buck. The pepperoni pizza was greasy, but a big improvement from the pizza that was previously offered here. Look for our review soon on the website.
It was time to call it a day at EPCOT. As we were heading out we drove past the Goofy Van Disney Vacation Club Billboard. The billboard has more progress since the last time we shared an update and is now painted blue.
