    Walt Disney Imagineering presents the Epcot Experience opens with the park this morning in the Odyssey Events Pavilion (located between Test Track and the Mexico pavilion). This engaging and immersive new space is the first in-depth look at the historic transformation underway across the park.

    The Epcot Experience blends cutting-edge technology and fun, personal moments to create an environment that honors everything you love about the park.

    Inside, you’re surrounded by a seamless, 360-degree, floor-to-ceiling screen showing a continuous 12-minute film with vignettes about new experiences coming to the park. All the while, a three-dimensional artfully designed model in the center of the room appears to change in time with the film, as projection-mapping technology highlights different areas of the park in special ways.

    The Epcot Experience also features new dimensional photo locations – including a scene where it looks like you’re standing atop the Spaceship Earth geosphere – historical artifacts on display, and attraction posters from throughout the park’s history. This place is a must-see!
    Included in the exhibit is the name reveal for the reimaginged centerpiece attraction for the park, 'Spaceship Earth Our Shared Story'.

    This sounds pretty awesome.
    We believed in our idea - a family park where parents and children could have fun- together

    Not
    We believed in our idea - a place to line the pockets of CEOs and shareholders

    I wish I could agree with those expecting awesome but I saw the presentation yesterday. The screen is very good but the model in the middle is more like a mountain rather than showing the new layout. The vignettes they talk about are exactly that and only give a hint at what to expect. Very little actual information in it. That said, it is interesting to get a limited idea of the future. Epcot will be a very different place when it’s done.
