1/31 Epcot Update – Big Figs Going Away?, New Troll & Viking Shirts, Tutto Italia Refurb
A t-shirt in Italy:
Tutto Italia is undergoing a major refurbishment, and is due to re-open in April:
Pooh and Tigger's normal spot in the UK is currently closed off, they were meeting at the International Gateway.
This was one of the oddest toys we've seen in a while – it's Mickey's hands on a lever, and you can punch with it. Mickey the plush is not included, we were just showing how it punches!
The back of the American Gardens Theater is undergoing some work. I was fortunate to once be invited to watch Illuminations from back here (I believe in 2000). At that time, there was no sound except for very loud fireworks booms! It was a great view.
Imagination Pavilion at night:
It was a great day – the crowds were low, and lines for rides/attractions rarely went over 10 minutes. Soarin' was at between 45 minutes and 1 hour for standby, we were able to get Fastpasses at 2pm.
