BREAKING: Is The Circle of Life at Epcot Closed Forever?
While Soarin’ is down to become Soarin’ Around the World, Imagineers are using this opportunity with less guests in the pavilion to refresh the overall experience of The Land. The Circle of Life: An Environmental Fable began running at the pavilion in 1995, replacing the often-despised Symbiosis film, but after a lengthy 21-year-run, it seems the attraction quietly closed forever this weekend.
While unconfirmed by Disney, WDWNT sources insist Circle of Life will not return with the theater on April 3rd, but rather a new film will debut. This is unconfirmed at this time, but comes from a highly credible source.
The closure of the Circle of Life on Sunday was not announced in advance so it has come as a surprise to many guests that the attraction is currently closed. Whether or not he film returns remains to be seen, but regardless, Living with the Land is the only operating attraction in the pavilion right now.
