What’s New in EPCOT: Festival Updates and an Attraction Reopens After Being Closed for YEARS

Let’s head back into EPCOT, shall we?

Spaceship Earth

This park has a LOT going on right now — lots of construction is going on, the Festival of the Arts has ended, and the Flower and Garden Festival is right around the corner. Come with us to take a look at what’s new in EPCOT from this past week!

EPCOT Construction Updates

Progress continues to be made on multiple EPCOT projects, like the building we expect will become part of Communicore Hall! We noticed there’s a new metal siding on the building, which is a great step forward.

The sign is also up (again) over at the Refreshment Station. This sign appeared previously but was later mysteriously removed. Now it’s back, so we’ll keep an eye on that!

Over at Journey of Water: Inspired by Moana, we’re continuing to see progress made as well. Many of the changes are quite small right now, but it’s continuing to come together!

As always, we’re keeping a close eye on all the construction.

EPCOT Food Updates

This past week we also got to try the Valentine’s Day Chocolate Liege Waffle for $4.19! It was only available for a very limited amount of time — it’s important to keep an eye out for those seasonal snacks when in the parks!

Creations Shop

We spotted a LOT of Harmonious merchandise in here lately, like the Harmonious Phone Case for $34.99

…and two different Harmonious Magnets for $14.99 each.

We think both of them could be fun souvenirs to pick up before Harmonious disappears from the park.

We also spotted a Harmonious Ornament for $19.99.

NuiMOs fans may not be able to resist the NuiMOs Spider-Man Backpack for $21.99.

And that’s the fun merchandise we saw this week — let’s move on to some more updates.

EPCOT General Updates

Akoya Pearls reopened for the first time in 3 years over in the Japan Pavilion, which we think many fans will be SO happy about.
