WOW! What an insane day filled with exciting news. Some of the biggest news of the day surrounded Epcot, which is undergoing a multi-year transformation.
As we discussed earlier, Epcot will soon have FOUR neighborhoods — which you can read more about here. These will “celebrate a unique aspect of what makes Epcot so special.” These neighborhoods will be known as World Celebration, World Discovery, World Nature, and World Showcase. And get this!! One of these neighborhoods will introduce a NEW location for Epcot’s festivals!
According to Disney, this new pavilion will live in the World Celebration neighborhood — which is where Future World is located now. It will be the base for all of Epcot’s signature festivals, like the Epcot Food and Wine Festival, which is kicking off this week!
The new locations will also provide a stunning view of World Showcase, which should become a great spot to view the new HarmonioUS Epcot fireworks — launching in 2020! It will also be a three-level structure with “one of the most remarkable designs at any Disney park.”
These three levels will feature a plaza level, a middle expo level, and a park in the sky on the top level! More details on this new structure have not been released at this time. But we will be sure to update as soon as more information is announced.
And speaking of festivals!! The 2019 Epcot International Food and Wine Festival kicks off this week. You can view all the menus here! And be on the lookout as we will be reporting all the food news from the festival on opening day.
