Remember the middle of Future World in EPCOT?
With all the construction barriers in the area, it’s been a looooong time since we’ve been able to stroll through. Now though, we’ve got a new update on what’s going on BEHIND the barriers!
Disney World is totally revamping EPCOT with new attractions, nighttime shows, and even a new look!
EPCOT is a literal maze of construction walls and gutted buildings at the moment. The theme park is undergoing a MASSIVE overhaul that will totally transform the theme park. Guests will be able to experience all sorts of new adventures when it’s all said done. So, let’s take a photo tour so you can see exactly what the construction progress is and what construction looks like on ALL the BIG EPCOT projects.
We’re SO excited for all the new things coming to EPCOT!
Last week we learned LOTS of exciting details about many of these projects during the “EPCOT — The Magic of Possibility” presentation as part of D23’s Fantastic Worlds events. Disney shared news about Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure, Harmonious, Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, and more! Not too long after that, Disney shared a press release on their website about the EPCOT transformation as well. And while this was all super exciting, we couldn’t help but notice a few things were missing. But we were also excited to see that a few things we haven’t heard about in a while were still mentioned. Let’s break it all down.
As you walk around EPCOT these days, you’ll notice a LOT of construction going on as part of the EPCOT Transformation.
Various projects are underway including the construction of Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, and work on the new nighttime show, Harmonious. But, some projects, like the Mary Poppins attraction and refurbishment of Spaceship Earth have been postponed. Could plans be changing for another part of this transformation — the Festival Pavilion? Here’s what we know.
Disney World is in full go, go, go mode with all the new and exciting things coming to the parks!
Sometimes, there’s just so much going on that you can’t help but miss some of the updates (whoops!). That’s why we’re here to tell you some of the most important news you may have missed this week!
Well in that onslaught of expected and unexpected news (Mary Poppins attraction, wut!), three HUGE pieces of Disney news for Walt Disney World went way under the radar.
Epcot’s Park-wide transformation was arguably the biggest, most paradigm-shifting news at D23, and lost in the haze of new neighborhoods and new pavilion, attraction, and dining info, you might’ve missed discussion of Spaceship Earth’s transformation. [Read more…]
