But, EPCOT has seen some MAJOR changes since the park opened back in 1982. And, since we can’t visit the parks in person, we’re taking you back on a journey through time and space to EPCOT’s beginnings!
There are some big changes coming to Epcot. For instance, we just checked in on the Ratatouille ride and Skyliner Station construction in the park. But another highly anticipated addition is the Guardians of the Galaxy ride.
This new ride is replacing the former Universe of Energy attraction, and work is well underway transforming the existing building into the queue area while they add a new building to house the ride. We’ve been monitoring the progress of the transformation of the Universe of Energy building — especially since it’s conveniently located on the way to the Food and Wine Festival Center 😉 .
If you didn’t get a chance to take a final spin on the Universe of Energy, there’s still a way to pay tribute to the classic Epcot attraction.
Just stop by La Cava del Tequila in the Mexico Pavilion!
Just like in fall of 2014 when La Cava honored the Maelstrom with a specialty margarita (which you can still get today!), the Universe of Energy has received a nod with the Universe of Energy Margarita!
This tribute-in-a-glass features Mezcal, Senorio Blanco, Liquor Ancho Reyes Verde, Guanabana Liqeuer (which is made with the Guanabana fruit [aka soursop] and rum and has flavors of strawberry and pineapple), fresh apple and lemon juice, and agave nectar.
It’s served on the rocks, as you can see here. [Read more…]
