Disney just dropped some big news on us this morning! A new concept image for a one-of-a-kind “Play Pavilion” was revealed. Walt Disney World has been constantly improving the parks with new additions to all four of the theme parks, water parks, roadways, and resorts.

Epcot has been included in plans for renovation with a brand new play pavilion that’ll be devoted to playful fun and feature an innovative city that’ll come to life under the dome of the un-named pavilion previously known as Wonders of Life. The pavilion’s city will be bursting with interactive experiences, your favorite Disney characters, hands-on activities and engaging entertainment when it opens just in time for the 50th anniversary of Walt Disney World Resort!

“This innovative, new pavilion is beyond anything we’ve ever created and is completely unique to Epcot,” said Zach Riddley, portfolio executive, Walt Disney Imagineering. “Built on the power of play, it introduces an immersive and interactive ‘city’ where you can explore, create, and interact with some of your favorite Disney characters. This is an experience worthy of our bold vision for Epcot – and another signature element of our transformation.”

Even more changes are coming to the Epcot with a new main entrance! Where the plaza welcomes guests with new pathways, more greenery, and a newly reimagined fountain. “This new design will pay homage to the original park entrance with fresh takes on classic elements.”- Disney

Leave A Legacy photos will be moving into a location just outside the park’s gateway. “Additional significant redevelopment will begin between Spaceship Earth attraction and the World Showcase Promenade.”-Disney

We are told more information will be released as time goes on.  If you are excited about all these changes we have one more for you! A BRAND NEW Experience Center is coming to Epcot later this year. “The Experience Center will be located in the Odyssey Events Pavilion and feature interactive exhibits to help visualize park projects throughout this unprecedented period of transformation.”-Disney
