With all of the construction walls that have popped up around Epcot, it is exciting that something new and shiny has opened; or at least refurbished and shiny.
A brand new preview center has opened at Epcot. The center is located in the Odyssey Events Pavilion and highlights all of the exciting and new visions that have been imgineered for the park. The Odyssey building is located between Test Track and the Mexico pavilion.
Guests will be able to walk through and see many of the models that were first unveiled at D23 that show various aspects of what is coming to the complete overhaul of Epcot.
Some of these changes include the replacement of Future World with four themed areas or worlds. Celebration, Nature, Discovery and Showcase. Also, a new festival center is coming, Spaceship Earth is receiving a facelift, The Play Pavilion, Ratatouille, Mary Poppins and much, much more.
The new preview area debuted on October 1, which is also the 37th Anniversary of the park’s opening.
Additionally, guests will be able to experience a 12-minute 360-degree film celebrating the “past, present and future” of Epcot. Where the park has been and where it is going.
The live concept art, state-of-the-art artistic interpretation model that highlights the new segments coming to Epcot brings an exciting magic to the concepts Disney is sharing with us including the sneak peak of Harmonious, the new permanent nighttime spectacular coming to Epcot in late 2020.
Guests can also perchase Epcot-themed merchandise, photo opportunities and historical details for the park.
With all of the chaos currently at Epcot, it’s nice to see a semblance of normalcy and what we can look forward to after the storm of walls and scrim finally come down to reveal a new and exciting next chapter for Walt’s vision.
Thank you for stopping by and for the love of the mouse, never forget, that it all started with a mouse.
