Disney’s Epcot has always known to be on the cutting edge. Well, it’s about to take another step into the future.
The theme park announced Thursday, plans to build out a new pavilion—an interactive city that will serve as a play pavilion near the Festival Center.
“The new pavilion in development will include first-of-their-kind experiences devoted to playful fun, inviting guests into an innovative, interactive city bursting with games and hands-on activities,” Disney said. “Friends and family will interact with favorite Disney characters in an energetic metropolis unlike anything ever seen before at Epcot.”
A date has not been set for the launch, however, Disney says it will launch in time for their 50th anniversary celebration.
Two more projects were announced Thursday, including:
Changes are coming to the Epcot main entrance, where the plaza will welcome guests with new pathways, sweeping green spaces and a newly reimagined fountain. This new design will pay homage to the original park entrance with fresh takes on classic elements. As part of this new entry experience, Leave A Legacy photos will move into a beautiful setting just outside the park’s gateway. Additional significant redevelopment will begin between Spaceship Earth and World Showcase Promenade; more details about the transformation of this area will be announced at a later date.
Guests will be able to visualize the exciting plans for Epcot when doors open later this year on a new Experience Center in the Odyssey Events Pavilion. They will discover engaging and interactive exhibits that showcase the relentless innovation, energy and excitement driving the future of the park all throughout this unprecedented period of transformation.Disney news release
