Disney World EPCOT Refurbishments

The recent news of the Disney World EPCOT changes comes as the world worries about shutdowns and closures. A piece of good news shows that the Walt Disney Company has an ongoing dedication to its customers and stakeholders.

The subject of the day? Canada, and its pavilion in EPCOT. Walt Disney World, especially the World Showcase, is in a constant state of flux. It’s one of the things that attracts people to EPCOT center and this Florida Disney Park.

Disney Rides and Attractions in a Continual States of Change

By virtue of a Walt Disney World attraction being popular, it undergoes wear and tear. Time passes, taking its toll. Whether through the Disney Skyliner or Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure, Caribbean Beach or Disney Springs, there is bound to be a refurbishment in the works (eventually).

It keeps the theme park safe and maintains the opportunity to use the world celebration as a real example of changes in world nature and character. These refurbishments are a necessity from the Beach Club Resort to the Walt Disney World Swan, and in terms of safety and access to Star Wars, that’s a good thing. It still means that the Magic Kingdom and EPCOT center pose both an enigma and an eyesore during the changes.

Tourists might come from far and wide to see Spaceship Earth or Animal Kingdom, but the Walt Disney World Resort brings World Discovery to guests directly. It provides access to cultural information and insight that highlights its ‘small world values.’
