So what else is happening at EPCOT?
EPCOT is being completely refreshed ahead of Disney World’s 50th Anniversary Celebration which begins on October 1, 2021. A brand-new look will greet you as you enter the park, and you may notice a large show building in Future World which will eventually be the home of an all-new Marvel roller coaster called Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind.
A brand-new restaurant called Space 220 is gearing up to open and will transport Guests to space to enjoy a meal that is out of this world.
Opening on October 1, to coincide with the start of the 50th Anniversary celebrations at Walt Disney World, EPCOT will open an expansion of the France pavilion that will feature an all-new attraction! Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure will shrink Guests down to the size of Remy and embark on a culinary adventure straight out of the film Ratatouille.
The World Showcase Lagoon will be home to two brand-new shows: one water show in the daytime, and one nighttime spectacular called HarmonioUS. We do not yet know when these shows will open, but Disney has been testing the special effect from the barges used in the show frequently so hopefully, these shows will debut soon.
With so many new experiences coming to EPCOT, we are looking forward to the future of this park.
