Just announced at our Disney media preview event today are new details about Epcot’s new attraction Awesome Planet. It will be a worldly cinematic experience.  It was announced today that Disney has chosen the host of the show, which will be none other than Ty Burell from ABC’s hit show Modern Family. He has played the role of realtor Phil Dunphy since 2009 and is in the final season this year.  Awesome Planet will be located in The Land Pavillion, in the location where the show Circle of Life: A Environmental Fable featuring Timon and Pumba was running since the mid-’90s.

The show is set to have a powerful environmental statement. It will feature the story of our planet Earth and all its beauty. It will showcase the diverse world we live in, and lead you on an exploration of the world around us. The voice of Ty Burell will be guiding guests through this journey through nature starting on Friday, January 17th.

This is one of many new attractions coming to Epcot as part of the reimagined concept for the park. There is also a new Beauty and the Beast sing-a-long experience coming to the France Pavillion. Not to mention the changes in the film in Canada. The China Pavillion is also expecting a new cinematic experience. With all these updates to the park be sure to follow Chip and Co for all the latest on this massive transformation of Epcot as we all know it.
