Disney has big plans for the multi-year transformation of Epcot, which includes new attractions and experiences! We already know that a Guardians of the Galaxy roller coaster is coming to Future World. The France Pavilion in the World Showcase will be getting Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure. Today, Disney announced that a new play pavilion will be coming to Epcot!
The new play pavilion will include first-of-their-kind experiences devoted to playful fun. It will invite guests into an interactive city bursting with games and hands-on activities. Guests will be able to interact with their favorite Disney characters in the new innovative city.
The new play pavilion has yet to receive an official name, but it will be going in the Wonders of Life dome pavilion. It will debut in time for the Walt Disney World Resort 50th anniversary (2021).
The play pavilion will be located next to the Guardians of the Galaxy roller coaster in Future World (East). The Guardians of the Galaxy roller coaster will be one of the world’s longest enclosed roller coasters. Disney needed a family friendly attraction near Guardians of the Galaxy and the new play pavilion will be just that!
Changes to the Epcot Main Entrance
In addition, new changes are coming to the main entrance at Epcot. There will be new pathways with sweeping green spaces and a newly reimagined fountain in front of Spaceship Earth. The new design will pay homage to the original park entrance!
With these changes, the “Leave A Legacy” photos will move into a beautiful setting just outside the park’s gateway. Disney has plans for a significant redevelopment between Spaceship Earth and the World Showcase Promenade. Disney will announce those plans at a later date.
A New Experience Center is Coming Soon!
The transformation of Epcot all sounds so exciting and you will be able to visualize the exciting plans later this year! A new Experience Center will be coming to the Odyssey Events Pavilion. Guests will be able to discover engaging and interactive exhibits that will showcase the new attractions, experiences, and projects that will be coming to Epcot!
There are so many changes that are coming to Epcot, but we are excited for the new attractions and experiences the park will receive.
