Volkskunst has been closed since the coronavirus pandemic shut down. Today, we saw it had finally reopened.

The Teddy Bear shop is still walled off and closed. A cast member told us it is rumored to become a food service location, but that is still up in the air.

Before its closure, this wall was filled with cuckoo clocks. They have since sold the majority of them, and are hoping to get more.

A few new merchandise items were found as well. Two new shirts, and a sweatshirt featuring “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs,” as well as, the new EPCOT Germany Pavilion logo.

We can see the top of Journey of Water Inspired by “Moana” a little bit clearer now that some scaffolding has been removed.

Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure has a small change. The ride vehicle seats once had dividers, separating the bench into three seats. We noticed that some of the vehicles no longer have the dividers. It’s unknown if all the vehicles will be modified to a solitary benchh, or if some will keep the dividers.

We decided to stop over at Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort to take in all their Christmas decor. They don’t have everything up quite yet, but they do have a few trees and strands of garland hung.
