This week alone, Disney made an official statement that the Spaceship Earth renovation and the new Mary Poppins attraction are being postponed. We just learned three new attractions that will allegedly close permanently.
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.
And while earlier we found out Epcot would soon be debuting two new food locations, we now know WHEN they’ll be opening!
If you’ve ever wanted to look “behind the curtains” to see just how the Imagineers come up with their magical ideas, then you’re probs going to want to know about the new exhibit coming to Epcot!
Things got real weird one morning in October when we noticed the Gourmet Popcorn Cart in Epcot’s Future World was strangely empty!
While we tried not to hyperventilate, a Disney World Cast Member assured us we could still get the deliciously-flavored snack, but we’d have to travel to the Epcot Experience exhibit to get it.
BUT NOW all is right with the world, and it appears the gourmet popcorn has magically returned from whence it came!
As many of you may know, Disney World is basically just a giant hard hat area at the moment.
Due to the INSANE amount of construction going on for attractions like Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, TRON Lightcycle Run, and new dining locations like Space 220 and Beatrix, many of our followers have started asking us if it’s even worth it to go to Disney World right now. Like — “I’m proposing! Should we even go?” and “It’s my boyfriend’s first time in Disney World and I want it to be perfect. Does it even make sense to go now?”
Um…in case you haven’t noticed…the Disneyverse is EXPLODING with news right now!!!
From that unfortunate Skyliner Gondola System incident and the debut of Epcot Forever to the new (and AWESOME!) Epcot Experience and PRICE INCREASES (but also Mega Hotel DISCOUNTS?!), so much has happened since the start of October!!
