    Exclamation EPCOT Moves Forward Reimagining Tomorrow

    Walt Disney World formally announced at today's IAAPA 2020 virtual conference that it was still moving forward with many of the projects and elements of the EPCOT reimagining project:

    At Walt Disney World Resort, work is continuing on the historic, multi-year transformation of EPCOT, including “Harmonious,” Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind and Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure.

    “Harmonious” will be one of the largest nighttime spectaculars ever created. It’ll feature the hallmarks of a Disney experience, including music and images, reimagined by diverse cultural musicians and artists from around the world.

    Work also continues on Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind – the family-friendly “storytelling coaster” featuring a groundbreaking ride system with vehicles that rotate 360 degrees and can even do a reverse launch!



    The Omnicoaster is a first- of-its-kind programmable roller coaster ride system, where guests can be rotated along the ride track in any direction while traveling at high speeds. The Omnicoaster name builds upon the tradition of the Omnimover ride system in which Walt Disney Imagineers are able to turn guests in any direction and focus their attention on a specific scene or element.

    And plans are on track to open Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure in 2021. Based on Disney and Pixar’s hit film, “Ratatouille,” this family-friendly attraction will invite you to shrink down to the scale of a rat for a culinary adventure with Chef Remy. During each adventure, you’ll race across Gusteau’s kitchen floor aboard special trackless ride vehicles in a thrilling 3D chase.
    Space 220 and the beautification projects are noted in the larger Imagineering update here; however, the Play pavilion and Mary Poppins attraction are notably absent making their future uncertain (although the latter has been rumoured canceled for some time). Also absent is the new CircleVision film for China; it was reported that the film had already been made so unclear why it was not included in today's updates.

    Construction permits have indicated that the Electric Umbrella and Mouse Gear replacements are moving forward, but other "center" area projects like the Moana Water Journey and Festival Center also now seem in doubt for at least the Phase 1 of EPCOT's reimagining.

    I'm relieved that so much is still moving forward ... it will be wonderful to have new things to explore when we can return.
