It’s back, and it now seems that nothing will derail the construction of the long-rumored Brazil pavilion at Epcot.
While we expected the new World Showcase Pavilion to be announced some time ago, various financial and political roadblocks have apparently stood in the way of that. According to sources, Brazil will open in the Summer of 2022 in Epcot.
The pavilion is rumored to be going between the Italy and Germany pavilions in World Showcase, an empty 1.5 acre plot left for a future pavilion since the park opened in 1982.
As of now, the pavilion would not feature a ride or attraction, only shopping and dining offerings. It’s unclear if Disney plans to add some offering to the South American area later.
Disney has yet to officially announce the project, but should soon. Construction should also be starting imminently.
