EPCOT is one of Disney World’s HOTTEST parks right now!
And by hot, we mean SCORCHING because of the weather, but it’s also become really popular, thanks to the EPCOT Flower and Garden Festival, the opening of the Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind attraction, and the opening of Connections Cafe and Eatery. EPCOT is the PLACE to be. So we were there recently to see what kind of updates we can get for you.
So here’s what’s new in EPCOT.

You can grab it now for $8.99.
