PHOTO REPORT: EPCOT 4/29/21 (Landscaping Installed at Gelateria Toscana, Three Caballeros Animatronics Missing For Three Months, New Rainbow Disney Collection Pins, and More)
Hello again from a hot but beautiful day at EPCOT! Overall, it’s been a pretty uneventful day, but we still found a few things to show you. Let’s begin!
When we entered the park, we noticed that even more “points of light” were installed on Spaceship Earth in front of the park entrance.
The lights now combine with those that wrap around from the east side and wander across the front of Spaceship Earth. They end just before they are out of sight from the entrance area. We will ensure that more lights are installed in the future.
Outside the future location of Creations Shop and Club Cool in Innoventions East, a new scaffolding was installed in front of a glass window, on the other side of which wood appears to be mounted. All other windows have a plastic backing.
A new piece of heavy machinery had been brought out at the World Showcase Lagoon to work on the Harmonious Barges on a second large construction barge.
With all of the ring barge’s arms in an upright position, we could see that the flexible screen we saw installed on one side of an arm some time ago was done so loosely that it hung down from one side and fluttered in with The Breeze.
We also saw the Harmonious Ring Barge test colored lights on the four extended arms.
Trees were installed to the right of the building in the Italy pavilion at the future location of Gelateria Toscana.
We found two small updates in the Mexico Pavilion on the Gran Fiesta Tour, but not the update we were hoping for. This animatronic girl at the foot of the Donald Piñata had a little movement in the past but was very lively today as she had apparently been fixed in some way. We’ve seen her head move in the past, but today she kicked too.
On the other side of the river in the same scene, the ribbon hat dancer standing next to the dancer animation that returned on Tuesday has now been removed.
Today has been three months since the animatronics on Three Caballeros were replaced with these painted apartments and we were hoping they returned today, but unfortunately the same static scene was there to greet us at the end of the ride.
We found a couple of merchandise to show you off, starting with this Grogu character clip, “Baby Yoda,” which we found on Disney Traders for $ 11.99.
We also found two new additions to the Rainbow Disney Collection Open Edition Pins. Both pins were available from Disney Traders yesterday, along with the two. The Heart Hands Pin is $ 9.99 and the Star Wars Pin is $ 12.99.
We had a great day at EPCOT and hope you enjoyed coming with us. I wish you a magical day!
