New Statue of Walt Disney coming to Epcot

A new statue of Walt Disney is coming to the Walt Disney World Resort. Epcot will be getting an original statue of the man behind the magic.

Walt Disney will be seated on steps looking out over Epcot. The area will be known as “Dreamer’s Point” and is located behind Spaceship Earth.

Disney Imagineer Zach Riddley shared more information about the statue on Instagram:

“Walt Disney had a dream of an Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow – his original bold vision for EPCOT. This legacy has inspired generations of Imagineers who built and continue to add stories and design concepts to this place we call EPCOT. It’s a park about people – and the dreams we all share. World Celebration will be the future home to a statue of Walt, celebrating his original dreams of this place and the boundless imagination that unites and inspires people from around the world.

Today at #DestinationD23, we shared a bit more about the process behind creating this original statue – Imagineer Scott Goddard spent months researching details about Walt from the period of his life when he was thinking about and sharing his vision of EPCOT. Scott continues the tradition of past Imagineers who hand-sculpt statues for our Parks and Cruise Ships, carefully sculpting the pose and features that will eventually be translated and cast into bronze for our life-size statue that will make its home in Dreamers Point – a new overlook we are creating just behind Spaceship Earth.

It’s going to be a stunning new entry point for all Guests visiting EPCOT – and a reminder that we are strongest as a global community when we dream together.”
