If you missed out on the 50th anniversary Mickey & Minnie Annual Passholder magnet you can now pick it up at Creations Shop in Epcot August 25 through September 21, 2022.

This is the same Annual Passholder magnet that was available in March 2022 at Disney Springs. Passholders that previously picked up the magnet in March 2022 are not eligible for another one. There is no virtual queue set up for this magnet.

It was time for some lunch so we decided to try the pepperoni pizza from Connections Eatery. The pizza has changed since the last time we tried it. Previously, the pizza was one large slice with a side salad. Now you receive two slices of pizza and it seems like there is more bang for your buck. The pepperoni pizza was greasy, but a big improvement from the pizza that was previously offered here. Look for our review soon on the website.

It was time to call it a day at EPCOT. As we were heading out we drove past the Goofy Van Disney Vacation Club Billboard. The billboard has more progress since the last time we shared an update and is now painted blue.
