According to a permit filed with Orange County, work on multiple shows at Epcot is starting soon. The permit indicates the work is related to “AV and Control installation and termination”.
Addresses on the permit show that the said work is being done on theaters in the Canada, France, and Land pavilions. These addresses coincide with the upgrade to the O Canada!, and the installation of the “Beauty and the Beast” sing-along, and Awesome Planet.
Recently, it was announced that O Canada! would be closing in August for improvements and to be used as a festival marketplace for the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival.
Awesome Planet, O Canada!, and the “Beauty and the Beast” sing-along are expected to be ready for the 2020 Epcot Festival of the Arts, set to debut as part of an overarching film festival theme. All of the films are set to remain after the festival concludes as permanent additions of the reimagined Epcot.
Stay tuned to WDWNT as more updates are available for the new shows coming to Epcot.
