If you bumped into me this week, chances are we talked pizza. The new pizzeria coming to Epcot has been on my mind since we launched our “first look” post on Monday. But there’s more happening at Epcot that didn’t make it to the blog — like a new merchandise kiosk now open in front of the China Pavilion. The posted image shows a few unique items currently available at Good Fortune Gifts. We also tweeted out news that Givenchy will be opening a 300 sq. ft. shop at the France pavilion at Epcot by September. It’ll be the only retail location in the United States to offer the full line of Givenchy make-up and skincare products.
Also this week, we’re hiring Disney Reservation Center Cast Members at the Walt Disney World Resort. If you’re the vacation planner of the family, this may be for you. Visit WaltDisneyWorld.jobs to apply.
And for all you Tinker Bell fans, there’s a special event happening at the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival this weekend. The filmmakers of “Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue” will be greeting guests and signing autographs at Pixie Hollow Fairy Garden on April 3. Details are posted at facebook.com/waltdisneyworld.
