We spied new menu boards have been added to registers at the refurbished Refreshment Station near Test Track in EPCOT.
Menu Boards Added to Refreshment Station Registers Near Test Track
They newly refurbished Refreshment Station near test track is sporting the red and silver palette we’ve seen throughout the World Discovery neighborhood.
The registers have received new menu boards as part of the refurbishment process.
The boards have an image of a bubbling slushy on the bottom, and bright white text.
The two slushy options at this stand are a frozen Coca-Cola for $5.25, and a Fanta Banana slushy topped with caramel and blueberries for $6.00
Other Construction at EPCOT
Several other major construction projects are currently taking place at this park. Construction walls have been lining walkways and blocking of sections of EPCOT for years.
With the ComminiCore Hall Construction, Journey of Water Inspired by Moana attraction construction, and the finishing of the removal of the Harmonious barges, EPCOT is undergoing a lot of change right now.
Journey of Water Inspired by ‘Moana’ Construction Update
According to CEO Bob Iger, Journey of Water, Inspired by “Moana” is the last step in the years-long EPCOT reimagining. It’s expected to open later this year, along with Dreamer’s Point, CommuniCore Hall, and CommuniCore Plaza.
Journey of Water concept art shows flowing waterfalls as well as water jumping over pathways. The giant Te Fiti statue sits next to a pool of water near the back of the area. This will be a walk-through attraction.
Journey of Water, Inspired by “Moana” is part of the World Nature neighborhood of EPCOT. It is set to open this fall.
Check out our list of every new attraction coming to Disney Parks in 2023, which includes Journey of Water, Inspired by “Moana.” The walkthrough attraction may include some MagicBand+ interaction.
Harmonious Barge Removal
Aerial photographer @bioreconstruct shared photos of Harmonious barges being demolished backstage at EPCOT. All four of the taco-shaped barges, plus the circular “stargate” barge, have now been removed from World Showcase Lagoon. The final performance of Harmonious was on April 2, and the first barge was gone as of April 10.
In bioreconstruct’s photos, the circular barge and the second taco barge are parked in the marina, while the deconstruction of the first taco barge continues. At this time, all the barges have been removed from World Showcase Lagoon.
The photos offer a close-up view of one of the barges being taken apart, with pieces in piles on the construction site. The barge now barely resembles its previous taco shape.
