What’s New in EPCOT: Flower & Garden Menu Additions and a $235 Necklace

EPCOT is undergoing a HUGE transformation, and that means new experiences, attractions, and even merchandise is popping up all the time!


We’re getting even closer to the opening of Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind and Connections Cafe, and we recently rediscovered a favorite EPCOT snack of ours, too. With so much going on, it’s important to stay updated ahead of your next visit. So, let’s check out what’s new at EPCOT!

EPCOT Food Updates

Farmer’s Feast Flower & Garden Booth

There are some new items on the menu over at this popular EPCOT Flower & Garden Festival Booth. We tried the Grilled Vegetable Bruschetta for $5…

This was SO good!

…the Herb-Crusted Spring Lamb was very savory, and a great dish for $7.75…

We want more of this lamb.

…and for dessert we tried the Strawberry Rhubarb Upside-down Cake. It’s $4.75 and was the perfect fruity finish to this feast!

We’ll take twelve.

Head over to Farmer’s Feast to check out the new seasonal menu items before they’re gone.

EPCOT Construction Updates

Moana: Journey of Water

More walls are going up throughout the construction site for this upcoming new attraction. Crews are clearing out more dirt and moving in heavy equipment to help speed things along.

We can’t wait to experience this new attraction!

Disney hasn’t shared an opening timeline for the Moana attraction just yet, but we’ll keep an eye on the construction progress!

Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind

Did you hear the news?! This highly anticipated attraction is opening on May 27th, 2022! From our most recent monorail ride, we spotted new designs on the ground in front of the entrance to the ride. Cast Members must be hard at work putting the finishing touches on the interior of the attraction, but it does look like those classic Disney construction shrubs have been moved!

We’re getting closer!

This will be one of the longest fully enclosed coaters in the world, and we are not so patiently waiting until the day we can finally ride it. Check out this sneak peek video!

We’ll be keeping an eye out for any more sneak peeks on this attraction ahead of its opening, so be sure to stay tuned!
