Good morning from EPCOT and Happy Disney + day! Today there is early entry for Disney + subscribers and we get to enter EPCOT a half hour before the park opens.

In addition to early entry, complimentary ear hats and buttons were available for guests at Disney’s Hollywood Studios for Disney+ Day. Unfortunately there were no ear hats and buttons available to Disney + subscribers at EPCOT.

To enter the park for early entry we had to show proof of our Disney + membership. Guests staying in select Walt Disney World Resort  were able to enter 60 minutes before regular park open.

It was great being able to enter the park 30 minutes early today. The crowds were very light and most rides were a walk-on. We wish that they would have had more Disney + offerings at all 4 parks.

The Spaceship Earth light-up Minnie ears are back in stock in Creations Shop at EPCOT. It’s been a year since these ears have been in stock and we think these ears will fly off the shelves again.

We took a look at the America Gardens theater to see if any progress has been made on the clean up from a recent fire. In case you missed it, a fire had broke out after a performance of Harmonious on September 6th. We then posted an article showing crews cleaning up the damage at the America Gardens theater yesterday. It is still unknown what caused the fire.

The park was pretty empty this morning at EPCOT. Crowds were nonexistent and wait times were pretty low.
