New Merchandise Kiosks at World Celebration Gardens

In other exciting news, EPCOT is stepping up its game with two new merchandise kiosks in the new World Celebration Gardens. While they’re not open just yet, you can spot them in the corner closest to Creations Shop.

If you’ve been to EPCOT recently, you’ll know that the area was in need of a little sprucing up. The arrival of these merchandise kiosks is a welcome change, especially considering the clutter of kiosks selling everything from sunscreen to Balzac that used to line the area.

World Celebration Gardens officially opened in December 2023, giving guests a taste of what’s to come in the future of EPCOT. While the park is not yet completely wall-free, with walls still up around Communicore Hall and Plaza, guests can now enjoy the gardens, check out the new Walt the Dreamer statue at Dreamers Point, and easily walk between World Nature and World Discovery.

So, there you have it, folks – the latest and greatest from EPCOT. Whether you’re a foodie looking to indulge in some Florida flavors or a shopper on the hunt for the perfect Disney souvenir, there’s something for everyone at the most magical place on Earth. See you at EPCOT!”
