Welcome back to EPCOT!
There’s been a lot of new stuff in the park lately, like now new flagship store, Creation shop, i a new restaurant, Space 220! So, we’re here to go around the world and the future to check out what other new and exciting things have come up at EPCOT recently, come on!
EPCOT food updates
There is a new popcorn stand outside of Creations Shop.
He sold the bucket of 50th anniversary popcorn, but has since stopped.
Cast members said the bucket will work again October 1st.
Space 220 has officially changed from walk-in to reservations only. That means there was a little less line to get on the waiting list on Monday (reservations for the first day began).
We highly recommend that you make reservations for Space 220 as it is a very popular place.

EPCOT merchandise updates
We saw two new shirts in the pavilion of Mexico, inside the pyramid!
One shows Mickey, Minnie and friends partying outside the pyramid and the other says ¡AY, CARAY! which means “oh, go!”
We have seen more new clothes in Norway. We found this gray tank top with a fall Mickey design for $ 29.99
Then we found it a lot of fun white Norway jacket which has a fun design on the sleeves.
The design was really full hidden Mickeys!!
We love finding subtle Mickeys in the market.
Port of entry
We found this new one Starbucks pin at the port of entry of the 50th anniversary!
Shows the figure at the top of the Earth spacecraft at number 50.

Additional EPCOT updates
Early entry to the theme park
Early entry to the theme park started … well ..soon this week! It was supposed to start on October 1st, but it actually started this past Sunday. Therefore, you can now enter the parks 30 minutes before opening time if you are staying at a Disney hotel.
This caused a good amount of crowding at the front entrance of the park.
People were hoping to be let in and take advantage of the quiet weather with (hopefully) fewer guests.

They are adorned with that EARidescence this has become the signature aspect of the celebration.
