The last D23 Expo in 2017 was jam-packed with announcements about changes to Disney parks, including the addition of the Guardians of the Galaxy and Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure rides in Epcot to name just two of them.
Epcot’s Park Core to be Reimagined
Work is already underway with the reimagination of the park entrance, which includes the removal of the “Leave a Legacy” walls to make way for a more open, green entry experience.
At the D23 Expo we will learn more about changes that will come on the opposite side of Spaceship Earth at the park’s core. All that has been announced is there will be new areas around the attraction. Details on the updates will be announced at the D23 Expo.
New Icons for Epcot’s Pavilions
The Epcot pavilions have had icons or logos used as symbols on maps, merchandise, and more. New icons will be revealed at the D23 Expo as the Play Pavilion joins The Land, The Seas with Nemo & Friends, and Imagination! pavilions.
Hints of More to Come
The D23 Expo preview closed with some hints of more announcements to come at the Expo. The preview promises news on experiences that are unique to Epcot including the updated films coming to Future World and World Showcase, as well as some new dining options being added to Epcot‘s already robust list of restaurants and dining options.
Like previous announcements, the preview is quick to acknowledge Epcot is one of Walt’s final projects and home to many vacation memories for thousands of families. As Disney looks to the future of the park and making it more family, more relevant, and more timeless they are still preserving what makes the park a special place for many.
