The newly released Pixar film Soul will soon be featured at Disney World in EPCOT!
On December 25, 2020, Disney released the once deemed Pixar theatrical release Soul to Disney+ starring Tina Fey and Jamie Foxx. Now, it looks like the newly added Disney IP will find it’s way into the Disney theme parks.
In fact, Disney just announced that The American Adventure pavilion in EPCOT’s World Showcase will be adding a new exhibit called “The Soul of Jazz: An American Adventure”.
Walt Disney Imagineering’s Carmen Smith stated that “Guests will be able to explore the colorful history of jazz… You will join Joe Gardner on a musical tour across America. We’re going to make stops in New Orleans, Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, and Puerto Rico. We’re working with some of the top jazz museums across this country. Jazz is the story of America, it unites people from every walk of life. It’s a living breathing art form that’s always evolving and always changing.”

The historic transformation of EPCOT will take another step forward in early February with “The Soul of Jazz: An American Adventure,” a new exhibit debuting inside The American Adventure. Featuring Joe Gardner from Disney and Pixar’s “Soul” – now streaming on Disney+ – you’re invited on a musical tour of America to learn about this inspiring genre of music.
At the moment, The American Adventure does not seem to be closed for any refurbishment from now through to February, so the addition is likely a non-invasive one. The new Soul exhibit will be one of the many new additions that EPCOT will experience in 2021 as we ring in Disney’s 50th Anniversary Celebrations — including (but not limited to) the Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind coaster as well as Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure and the newly expanded France Pavilion!
