Welcome back to EPCOT, where a LOT is happening!
Aside from the big transformation that’s still in progress, EPCOT is currently celebrating its 40th anniversary, and we’ve also found lots of new merchandise! Follow along with us for all the big EPCOT news!
EPCOT Food Updates
At Connections Cafe in EPCOT, we noticed that the pizza has changed a bit. Instead of coming with a single slice and a side salad, you now get two slices of pizza. The crust was also thinner and the meatballs on the Meatball Pizza were much smaller.
It may not have been the best pizza we’ve had in Disney World but we thought they were pretty good, and they might hit the spot if you’re looking for a quick slice in EPCOT.
EPCOT Construction Updates
The Play Pavilion will feature interactive digital experiences and hands-on activities, and we can’t wait to check it out once it opens. Disney has not yet revealed an opening timeline so stay tuned for more updates!
During EPCOT’s Food & Wine Festival, you can participate in Remy’s Ratatouille Hide and Squeak, which is a scavenger hunt that tasks players to find Remy statues placed around EPCOT. During Hurricane Ian, we noticed that Remy statues located outdoors were moved, and they were seemingly subsequently replaced with plates.
However, on our most recent trip to EPCOT, we found Remy statues placed back outside!
You can purchase a game board through the end of the Food & Wine Festival on November 19th to get a prize, or you can just find the Remy statues around for fun!
