He stated, “This innovative, new pavilion is beyond anything we’ve ever created and is completely unique to Epcot. Built on the power of play, it introduces an immersive and interactive ‘city’ where you can explore, create, and interact with some of your favorite Disney characters. This is an experience worthy of our bold vision for Epcot and another signature element of our transformation.”
Simplemost.com pointed out that Disney World hasn’t set an exact date for the completion of the new Epcot makeover. However, it’s believed that it could be done in time for the upcoming Walt Disney World Resort 50th anniversary in 2021.
Some additions to the Epcot entrance will include a new design and restored fountain. It promises to “pay homage to the original park entrance with fresh takes on classic elements.”
Simplemost pointed out some extra details about the Experience Center. Apparently, visitors will be able to use this center later on this year to get a glimpse of what all the new Epcot changes will look like. The interactive exhibits to help visitors visualize how the new Epcot will look and feel.
Some other previously announced Disney World attractions include a “Ratatouille” dark ride, a “Guardians of the Galaxy” roller coaster at the World Showcase, a “Beauty and the Beast” sing along at the France pavilion and a new night time event at the World Showcase Lagoon.
