What’s New in EPCOT: A Donut Ear Restock!

If you’ve been to EPCOT recently, then you know that the park is currently undergoing lots of construction.

There’s a lot going on here!

Construction is underway to bring new things to the park like a walkthrough attraction called Journey of Water — Inspired by Moana, new festival centers, and more. As construction continues to transform this park, we’re heading to EPCOT today to take a look at what’s new!

EPCOT Food Updates

Connections Cafe

At the Connections Cafe (a.k.a. the park’s Starbucks), we decided to try the new Blondie With Butterscotch Chips. 


While this treat didn’t taste much like a blondie (it reminded us more of cake), we really enjoyed the texture and flavor. The butterscotch chips added a great crunch, too. You can grab this blondie for $4.99.

House of Good Fortune

House of Good Fortune is one of the shops located in the China pavilion in World Showcase. There, we noticed some new chips with a picture of Chinese star Wang Yibo.

These chips are Honey Butter flavor and will cost you $6.50.
