No More Project Tomorrow at EPCOT? Experience Currently Shut

in Epcot, Walt Disney World

Project Tomorrow closed

Project Tomorrow at EPCOT is currently closed to all guests and we’ve had no word on when the experience will be reopening.

Project Tomorrow or to go by its full name, Project Tomorrow: Inventing the Wonders of the Future, is located after the exit of Spaceship Earth and hasn’t changed really at all since the last time Spaceship Earth was refurbished in 2007.

Disney describes Project Tomorrow as:

After your journey through Spaceship Earth, explore the latest in high-tech science.

Assemble a digital human body using technology developed to perform remote surgeries. Hit the road in a driving simulation game that demonstrate accident avoidance systems. Take a peek at groundbreaking medical diagnostics for your home.

You can even view the video from the future you made while riding through Spaceship Earth—and email it to family and friends from a Project Tomorrow kiosk!

There are two main issues that we see with guests frequenting this area during the current climate. One is that Disney doesn’t want crowds to stick to one area (especially indoors) and the second being that a lot of the experiences include touching screens or objects that another guest has just come into contact with. One of the tasks also includes 3D glasses so if Disney kept this open, it would require excessive cleaning for everything in an experience that wasn’t that popular prior the pandemic anyways.

With the refurbishment of Spaceship Earth on hold, we would also assume that any planned work on Project Tomorrow is also on hold for the foreseeable future. It’s a shame, in my opinion, because as much as some parts of Spaceship Earth feel dated, Project Tomorrow doesn’t feel anywhere near as future thinking as it did back in 2007. Technology moves fast and this attraction hasn’t changed any of its exhibits in years.
