Hello there, world travelers! Welcome back to another roundup of What’s New in Epcot!
We’ve got a lot to cover today (including a delicious fall shot and an adorable Cozy Knit), so let’s get started!
Epcot Food Update
In the Mexico Pavilion, we noticed that La Cava del Tequila‘s bar queue line had returned. Also, a Cast Member told us they are featuring a Frozen Strawberry Margarita this month that isn’t on the menu — so be sure to ask for it!
In the Germany Pavilion, we found (and tried!) a shot of the returning Mozart Chocolate Cream Pumpkin Spice Liqueur for $11.
Even though we are HUGE pumpkin spice fans, we still have to say that this is one of the best pumpkin-flavored treats we have ever tried in Disney World. After taking one sip of the chilled Mozart Chocolate Cream Pumpkin Spice Liqueur, we were blown away.
While we were meandering around the Italy Pavilion, we noticed that the Cocktail Popsicles are no longer on the menu for the Donkey Cart. Thankfully, we’ve got plenty of other eats and treats to snack on thanks to the 2019 Epcot Food and Wine Festival!
Unfortunately, the wine walk was not available during our visit. Cast Members told us they hope it will return after the conclusion of the Food and Wine Festival. The only flight we saw available inn a wine merchandise shop was the Champagne Flight in France.
In the American Adventure Pavilion, Mmmhops Pale Ale is available once again at Fife and Drum Tavern! They didn’t have this the first day of the Food and Wine Festival, so we’re glad it’s available now.
We found an exciting — and Frozen — new addition to Block and Hans’ beverage offerings. Arendelle Aqua Lemonade has made an early appearance as part of the upcoming Arendelle Aqua Disney color trend (which will become available on September 13th!).
The Arendelle Aqua Lemonade ($13.00) is a frozen lemonade with Monin Cotton Candy and Ole Smoky Blackberry Moonshine. We not only love the color of this drink, but it tasted pretty dang good too.
Epcot Construction Update
During our time in Future World, we saw more construction walls. We specifically noticed them near Guest Relations and more near the Play Zone area.
Construction is also progressing on Epcot’s highly-anticipated Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind attraction. We noticed a crane near the front of the construction zone that we hadn’t seen on previous visits.
The new coaster is slated to open in time for Disney World’s 50th-anniversary celebrations in 2021 and we’re already counting down the days!
Construction is also underway on Epcot’s Space 220 restaurant, though we can’t really peek any of the progress from the outside. This dining location is expected to open this year, and we can hardly contain our anticipation!
Cool Wash was still closed during our visit, but we did notice some Food and Wine Festival storage containers.
We recently told you that the Odyssey Events Pavilion was sporting some new blue paint, and NOW the building has some new pink paint as well!
If you haven’t heard, the NEW Epcot Experience is coming to the Pavilion this October.
While we were in the Canada Pavilion, we noticed that the decorative construction covers had been taken down due to Hurricane Dorian. During our most recent visit, they hadn’t put the covers back up yet.
Epcot Merchandise Update
The limited release Loungefly ears feature a sparkly black bow, black headband, and blue vinyl ears decorated with cartoon characters and attractions from the parks! Can you spot Space Mountain??
Also in Mouse Gear, we spotted an absolutely adorable Penguin Cozy Knit for $27.99. We love the fact that the penguin (from the belove film, Mary Poppins) is sporting a bow tie!
We can’t get enough of these adorable Cozy Knits! We still can’t get over how cute the Nana Cozy Knit is.
Well, friends, that wraps up our journey around Epcot — thanks for joining us! Stay tuned to Disney Food Blog for even more news from the Disney parks and resorts.
