The Future of Future World at Epcot


As you know, several huge announcements were made at this year’s D23 Expo. Disney released this awesome “Blue Sky” concept photo hinting on the changes that are to come to Future World. Our friends over at Inside the Magic dissected the photo and broke down what the future holds for Future World.

Let’s take a closer look:


As one would imagine, the park’s iconic Spaceship Earth will not be going anywhere. However, the area to the rear of the ride appears to be significantly reduced. It appears that the Innoventions and character meet and greet buildings will be demolished with the completion of the re-imagined Future World.


It appears that the space currently occupied by the Innoventions building will be replaced with vegetation. We also may see the the entrance to the new Guardians of the Galaxy attraction in this area. It was just announced at the Expo that this attraction would be replacing the current Universe of Energy.


On the west side of Future World, it looks like a new maze-like hedge structure and water area look to be installed in front of the Land.


The Club Cool and Mouse Gear buildings appear to be getting some extensive renovations if they are not even completely removed. Maybe we will see a completely new dining option along with a new merchandise shop.


One last thing to point out from the “Blue Sky” photo is the addition of a new water feature at the entrance to the World Showcase. It also looks like some new walkways will be added to make it easier for folks to get to the World Showcase from Future World.

Keep in mind this is all just speculation at this point. Disney was very careful to say during the announcement of the changes coming that this is an initial look at what may be to come but many changes can happen between now and when the dust settles on the new Future World.
