Hey DFB friends — we’ve got news from EPCOT!

Oh EPCOT, we love you!

While Disney Vacation Club Members and Annual Passholders scrambled to secure Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind previews, a lot has happened in EPCOT! Find out all about it here!

In the Mexico pavilion, the La Cava del Tequila mobile menu has changed! Now there are pictures next to margaritas…

…and specialty cocktails! It might be easier to settle on your drink choice when you know what it looks like.

Sommerfest in the Germany pavilion was out of souvenir cups, so depending on when you visit, you might not be able to get one.

EPCOT Construction Updates

The Chip Easter Egg was moved in the China pavilion! When Mulan came out to greet guests, he was blocked off, so we assume that’s why Chip was moved.

Connections Cafe & Eatery is still under construction. The Starbucks sign was covered during one visit, and if you look closely inside the building you can see tables.

We also noticed that the Harmonious barges were under construction this week.
