It’s time to take in the sights of Epcot. This week, there is lots of entertainment related news out of the experimental prototype community of tomorrow. I sinkhole near the Imagination Pavilion has forced Disney management to wall off a section of the park in hopes of repairing the area. Frozen seems like an inevitable overlay for the neglected Maelstrom ride in Norway. We are also seeing the first signs of the Food and Wine Festival and its return to the park this fall. There is lots to cover so let’s go!
We invite you to join us for a very special MiceChat trip to Walt Disney World this October. WDW Gumball Rally, Food and Wine Festival Sip and Nibble, Halloween Events, Meets, Entertainment and much more. Don’t miss the MiceChat WDW Invasion!

Heading into World Showcase, many of the Food and Wine areas are all ready to go. There are also some new entertainment offerings coming soon. But with those offerings, some old favorites are leaving us as early as the end of this month. We’ll detail them on a round trip of World Showcase.
It seems all too imminent that Maelstrom may soon be closing for a Frozen overlay. The My Disney Experience app no longer allows for FP+ booking past September 26th. That said, I’ve been taking lots of photos of the area in the event that it actually happens.
The Spirit of Norway.
Hopefully the ride changes won’t change too much of the merchandise and food locations.
More Food and Wine fun.
Italy is getting some new entertainment in a flag waving show. Will this change the current entertainment that already exists in this pavilion? Disney doesn’t usually add something without taking something else away.
The Fife and Drum group at the American Adventure will no longer be around with these entertainment changes.
Mo’Rockin’ will be replaced by a Berber-style dance troupe.
The World Showcase Players in the UK will also be taking their final bows, yet the British Revolution will be sticking around.
Off Kilter will also be leaving Epcot when the new entertainment changes take place. They will be replaced by a ‘lumberjack show’.
Time to head out!
