It would be awesome if they used our ideas for Epcot! Don't they know we are experts on this?

A maple syrup bar in Canada.


That reminds me of the beaver tails they used to have in Canada. The beaver tail with maple and Nutella was amazing!

Also on Thursday, I had the time to stop by Epcot for the first time in a while.

What do you to stay out of a Florida rain storm? You go an an Energy Adventure!
DSC08724.JPG
Inside of the ride, new vehicle shells are slowly being installed on the old ride vehicles.
DSC08725.JPG
Blue is new versus the old red/purple.
DSC08729.JPG
Not much more visible progress outside of Test Track yet.
DSC08730.JPG
It was a really slow day...
IMG_1888.JPG
Unreal!
IMG_1889.JPG
Is anyone here?
IMG_1890.JPG
No, really. This place was empty!
DSC08731.JPG
Over in World Showcase, a ton of the International Food & Wine Festival Booths have been installed.
DSC08733.JPG
It looks like the locations might have been switched up this year for some booths. The popular Australia booth is normally closer to Germany.
DSC08737.JPG
Lingenberries!
DSC08738.JPG
Potstickers!
DSC08739.JPG
I normally skip the South Africa booth, but maybe this year there'll be something I'm interested in trying.
DSC08740.JPG
More work going on over by Germany.
DSC08743.JPG
Poland is over by Italy this year.
DSC08744.JPG
DSC08748.JPG
Over near the American Adventure several random characters like Bolt have appeared for guest photos.
DSC08749.JPG
Wendell from the Country Bear Jamboree was also out to meet guests.
DSC08752.JPG
Here's a cool new World Showcase shirt for you foodies!
DSC08753.JPG
And a more retro one also sold at the American Adventure.
DSC08754.JPG
The Hops & Barley Market (one of my more recent favorites) has moved to the side of the American Adventure.
DSC08755.JPG
Here's another fun shirt I hadn't seen before!
DSC08757.JPG
New for this year is the Fresh from Florida booth. I'm hoping it is as good as the old Florida booths from the past used to be, because those shrimp and citrus items are some of my all-time favorites!
DSC08759.JPG
DSC08760.JPG
Singapore also moved from its previous location.
DSC08761.JPG
Morocco on the other hand is exactly where it always is.
DSC08762.JPG
The plot used for the Belgium booth is currently being prepped.
DSC08763.JPG
France looks like it is almost ready to go!
DSC08768.JPG
Construction work continues on what is rumored to be a more permanent DVC booth at the Canada pavilion... But I'm really hoping that this ends up being a quick service location that serves the cheese soup and chicken sausage with polenta... I'd eat there all day!
DSC08770.JPG
I can't wait for this to return!
DSC08773.JPG
Same here!
DSC08775.JPG
And who can forget about those Kahlua Pork Sliders?

Do these food booths they put up every year accept credit cards or your room key to make a purchase?

^Yes to both. The best option for me was to load money onto one of those F&W gift cards. It comes with a band that you can wear as a bracelet so you don't have to constantly get your wallet out.

Yes, those F&W cards are awesome and make paying so much easier and faster. I make Ice Bat be my card holder!
