Mickey, Friends Join EPCOT July 4th Festivities
Clad in their finest Independence Day ensembles, Mickey celebrated today’s holiday in true American style alongside some of his closest pals. Of course, MickeyBloggers Greg and Elyssa wandered over to the American Adventure today in EPCOT to say hello to the cast of characters greeting guests.
With two of his favorite sidekicks along for the festivities, Mickey greeted guests alongside Pluto and Goofy. All three wore patriotic hats with Goofy and Mickey sporting their colonial attire.
All three broke out in laughter a number of times during the visit to the American Adventure pavillion. The three wisely found shade on this very warm day, tucked away behind the Magnolia Terrace outdoor kitchen.
The kitchen itself marks its last day in operation this season today with the closure of the EPCOT International Flower and Garden Festival at the end of the park’s festivities tonight. The finale makes way for the EPCOT International Food and Wine Festival preparations before that event begins on July 14th.
A Famous Pair of Chipmunks Celebrate Their Independence
With their usually rascally attitudes on full display, Chip and Dale greeted guests on the other side of the American Adventure pavillion. The chipmunks always provide such cheer during any meet-and-greet.
Like Pluto, they both proudly wore a red, white and blue sash as they emerged this afternoon.
With a bannered background, the pair posed for photographs to the side of the Regal Eagle Smokehouse, one of our favorite places to grab barbecue in EPCOT (alongside a Moonshine Sour from the bar just outside).
Chip and Dale’s hilarious antics entertained the crowd during Greg and Elyssa’s brief stop today.
They even snapped a super stellar photo with Greg himself!
Stay tuned to MickeyBlog today as Greg and Elyssa continue to bring us all of the 4th of July excitement at EPCOT and beyond, including tonight’s special addition to the evening fireworks spectacle at the park following just after Harmonious.
