Entrance Enhancements are Coming to Epcot Soon

Entrance Enhancements are Coming to Epcot Soon

Walt Disney World will never be finished because it is always evolving.

Last week, Disney announced the Epcot park entrance is going to be undergoing some pretty big changes. Planned enhancements are coming soon to Epcot giving the park’s entrance quite a refreshing look. The enhancements are expected to start soon.

Epcot is creating a unique entrance with green spaces, a play pavilion, and a reimagined fountain. The play space will be located in the former Wonders of Life Pavillion. The interactive play space will open just before the 50th-anniversary celebration begins. The leave a legacy feature will be relocating to make way for the new entrance features.

Entrance enhancements have also come to Hollywood Studios. Changes to the bus waiting area and the installation of the new Skyliner will hopefully help with the expected added traffic of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opening this fall. Coming and going is also now easier with the new entrance to the parking lot. The entrance off Osceola Parkway opened last year.

Both Epcot and Hollywood Studios have major changes coming beyond the entrance enhancements. Last year, Hollywood Studios opened Toy Story Land and later this year Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will make its debut. Epcot is seeing multiple new attractions and experiences in both Future World and the World Showcase. Some of these include a Guardians of the Galaxy roller coaster, Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure attraction, updates to the 360 degree shows in both the China and Canada Pavillions, the Space 220 restaurant, and Epcot Forever a new nighttime show to replace Illuminations: Reflections of Earth until a more permanent show is installed in 2020.

These enhancements will hopefully vastly improve the traffic flow around the resorts and into the parks. The construction is a multi-phase project that will contribute to an overall improved guest experience.
