For this photo update of Epcot, we’ll start with a few stops in Future World and work our way through the World Showcase beginning in Canada. Epcot’s International Food & Wine Festival is going on the whole month of October, ending on Nov. 8. You can read all about it Here and the weekly Party of the Senses Here.
Our first stop was in Innoventions East for another ride on the new Sum of All Thrills. You can read all about it Here. The line wasn’t bad at all. We waited about 15 minutes to get into the briefing room.
This new part of the Test The Limits Lab in Innoventions is supposed to open soon. In fact a cast member told me it’s past due. The Safety Smart Lab will feature a cast member led presentation featuring Timone and Pumba from “The Lion King.”
While sending a Twitter update inside Innoventions, I noticed a wi-fi hotspot called Innoventions East. To my surprise, it worked – free wireless Internet access. I asked a cast member about it and he said he’d heard IBM was building an Internet cafe in Innoventions West, but that didn’t explain why it was called Innoventions East. I didn’t find one called Innoventions West, but I did find a couple of other hotspots around the park, including one near the Odyssey Center called D23 Fan Access. I’ve read reports that free wireless Internet has been spoted elsewhere around Walt Disney World, including the lobby of some resorts. Let’s hope this is a continuing trend, at Disney World and the other theme parks.

I’ll end with a bang. Here’s a video I took with my iPhone of the end of Illuminations. We found a new good spot for watching it by accident on our way out. This was recorded outside of the restrooms between the Baby Care Center and the Odyssey Center.
