Hello from EPCOT, DFB friends!
We headed out to take a walk around the park to see what’s new and we’ve got a ton of updates to share! Let’s get started!
EPCOT Food Updates
We’ve loved all the fun and unique Lay’s chip flavors we’ve discovered at House of Good Fortune, and a new one just turned up — Numb and Spicy Hot Pot. That almost sounds dangerous — and yummy!
We didn’t give these a try just yet, but if you’ve tasted them before be sure to let us know what you think of them in the comments!
Joffrey’s Coffee Kiosk
The Joffrey’s location at the front entrance is now open. The hours are Monday-Friday from 3PM to park close and Saturday and Sunday from 11AM to 1 hour after park close.
It’s definitely nice to have another coffee option available at EPCOT.
EPCOT Merchandise Updates
We spotted a few new items at the France pavilion, including these children’s dresses.
We also spotted some new kitchen items, including trays, aprons, and oven mitts. There are some new bags here, too.
We love the vibrant colors of the kitchen merch!
It’s almost 2021 and that means we’re starting to see new calendars and datebooks! We especially like this Hello Kitty calendar for $8.60. It’s so much fun!
This Pochacco Calendar available for $9.10 is also adorable. These animals really seem to love food (relateable content for sure!).
This Hello Kitty Calendar for $9.10 features our favorite Kitty putting on a puppet show for her plushes on the front. That is SO Kawaii (that means “cute” in Japanese).
There’s also a 2021 Hello Kitty Diary for recording all our personal thoughts and Disney World adventures. It’s available for $19.10.
We are going to keep track of all our important meetings with the 2021 Hello Kitty Datebook for $15.40.
There’s also a Pochacco Datebook for $15.40.
If you’re looking for a unique souvenir, the Japan Pavilion is a great place to go for charming and interesting merch!
We spotted a new line of clothing — and a mug — in the Mexico Pavilion that matches the awesome Mexico Minnie Ears we recently discovered. First up is this Mexico Cropped Sweatshirt for $34.99. It’s got that beautiful embroidery-style design on it with flowers and hidden Mickeys.
There’s also a Mexico Tank Top for $44.99.
And these matching Mexico Sweatpants for $44.99.
This Mexico Bell-Sleeved Shirt is so flowy! You can snag it for $36.99.
Remember we mentioned there was a mug with this design, too? Here’s the new Mexico Mug for $14.99.
We also saw a new Mexico Visor. It’s got the colors of the Mexico flag on it with a Mickey head!
The visor is $19.99.
We spotted tons of new merch in the Norway Pavilion. This Norway Minnie Mouse Scoop Neck Tee is $36.99.
We also loved this blue and white Minnie Mouse Norway V-Neck Tee for $36.99.
This Norway Mickey Kids Tee is $19.99.
There’s a Norway Minnie Kids Tee, too, which also costs $19.99. The Minnie tee is red, of course!
The Norway Keychain has Mickey and Minnie on one side…
And the back has the country’s motto on it, “The land of the midnight sun.” The keychain is $12.99.
There’s even a new Norway Luggage Tag with Mickey and Minnie on it! You can nab this for $12.99.
If you want to represent Norway on your Christmas tree, you’ll need the new Norway Ornament, right? It’s got the Norway Pavilion on one side…
And Mickey and Minnie in a ski lift on the other side! They’re ready to hit the slopes! This ornament is $16.99.
You can also get that cute Mickey and Minnie design on a new Norway Pin.
You can add this pin to your collection for $9.99.
United Kingdom Pavilion
It’s sweatshirt season! So it’s probably a good thing we spotted an awesome new Rose & Crown Sweatshirt, right?
The back, though, is what makes this sweatshirt unique: Mind your P’s and Q’s!
The sweatshirt is priced at $59.99.
We found some very pretty ornaments in China! This Santa Ornament is GORGEOUS. It’s available for $36.
We also really love this beautiful Snowman Ornament for $48.
These would make our tree look AMAZING.
EPCOT Construction Updates
As we’ve previously reported, much of the Morocco Pavilion recently closed to get ready for Disney to take over operations from the previous operating participants.
Only a few areas of the pavilion are open, including the Race Against the Sun exhibit, the Kidcot spot, and Morocco Coffee & Pastries (with a limited menu).
And that wraps up all of the latest updates from around EPCOT! We’ll continue to check out all of the newest additions at the parks and resorts, so be sure to stay tuned to Disney Food Blog for more Disney World news!
