The Disney Parks have officially reopened, but we’re still feeling the ripples of the closures.
We’ve been hanging out around EPCOT today checking out everything that’s changed since we were last here AND the 2020 Taste of EPCOT Food & Wine Festival. One hidden change we found was in the EPCOT Experience where the Spaceship Earth refurbishment and the upcoming Mary Poppins attraction have been removed from the “coming soon” video. Now, Disney has issued a statement about these two attractions.
We already know that the closure postponed the refurbishment of Spaceship Earth. In fact, construction halts had an effect on all sorts of projects in Disney parks around the world. The removal of these attractions from the video caught our eye. Could this mean these changes weren’t going to happen?
According to Attractions Magazine, Disney has released the following statement pertaining to the two attractions: “As with most businesses during this period, we are further evaluating long-term project plans. The decision was made to postpone development of [the] ‘Mary Poppins’-inspired attraction and Spaceship Earth at this time.”
So it seems that the Spaceship Earth refurbishment and the Mary Poppins attraction are postponed, for the time being, not yet fully canceled! We’ll monitor the status of these two projects and share any news with you as it’s released! Keep an eye on DFB for all of the latest updates about Disney World and beyond!
