Epcot Expansion

The Disney rumor mill has been abuzz for a while now that the next Walt Disney World theme park to get an expansion would be Epcot.   News released by the Orlando Sentinel this morning suggests that this may soon be a reality.

According to the piece, The South Florida Water Management District issued a permit for canal modifications that would allow Disney to build a new storm water system on the north east side of the theme park.  Though on the surface this may seem pretty insignificant, re-configuring the canal frees up an area where a possible expansion could take place.

In addition, to the canal, the project will also include creating two dry retention areas for water treatment near areas where future construction is being planned.  This is in keeping with earlier statements made by Disney Parks Chairman Bob Chapek who announced at a D23 event last November that Epcot would be undergoing a “major transformation” in the years to come.
