Rikki’s Mouse Bites 11/4/13


  • The new running superstore, Fit2Run is now open to guests.  This store specializes in finding the perfect shoe for your running needs.


  • There are a few new flavors of soda for guests to try at Club Cool in Epcot.  This popular spot to stop and get complimentary sample refreshments has been a staple for many guests, especially with the game of making unsuspecting people trying the beverage known as Beverly, a very bitter aperitif from Italy.   This drink will remain, along with these flavors:
    • Fanta Pineapple – Fanta debuted in Europe in the 1940s and was introduced in the U.S.A. in 1960s. It’s now available in more than 90 flavors. This option is caffeine-free and has a sweet pineapple taste.
    • VegitaBeta (Japan) – combines apricot and passion fruit flavors
    • Fanta Melon Frosty (Thailand) – a melon-flavored soda that is the number one seller here
    • Bibo (South Africa) – a fruit-flavored juice drink
    • Sparberry (Africa) – raspberry cream-flavored soda
    • Guarana Kuat (Brazil) – flavored after the guarana berry
    • Inca Kola (Peru) – offers a sweet, almost bubblegum-like taste

    Frozen - Anna and Elsa

  • Anna and Elsa from the upcoming Disney movie Frozen are now meeting in the Puffin’s Roost at the Norway Pavilion.  Anna appears very bubbly and Elsa is a bit more reserved…icy almost.  Be sure to check a Times Guide for exact meeting times.  (And keep in mind that the line to meet these two is outside the pavilion, so you are at the mercy of the elements.)
  • A new Fastpass+ test starts today and runs through December for Epcot and Epcot only.  For those making new reservations, guests will be able to make only ONE reservation for a Headliner attraction (otherwise known as a Level 1 attraction) and TWO reservations for additional attractions (otherwise known as a Level 2 attraction).  If you already have Fastpass+ reservations made during this time period, DO NOT change them.
