Announced at this year’s D23 was a lot of exciting updates coming to Epcot. From more information on Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind to announcing a Mary Poppins-themed “Cherry Tree Lane” Neighborhood coming to the United Kingdom pavilion, we had a lot of information to process for this theme park. However, the most exciting had to be hearing that the Epcot displays from D23 were going to arrive at Epcot later this year for all guests to enjoy.

“Walt Disney Imagineering Presents The Epcot Experience” officially opened today at Epcot, allowing guests to visualize all of the exciting plans for Epcot at a new experience center in the Odyssey Events Pavilion. Inside this first-of-its-kind offering within a Disney park, guests can discover engaging and interactive exhibits that allow them to step inside the relentless innovation, energy and excitement and see some never-before-revealed details driving the future of Epcot all throughout this unprecedented period of transformation.

Let’s take a look at all this new center has to offer!

If you’re looking for the Gourmet Flavored Popcorn cart by the Imagination Pavilion, it’s no longer open. Thankfully, this location still offers all three flavors, plus some craft beers on tap.

The Epcot Experience center is comprised of a series of displays surrounding an inner room with a massive Epcot diorama, so we’ll walk through the peripheral offerings before getting to the big display.

All along the walls are these fan-favorite posters that were displayed during the D23 Expo.

However, it’s once you enter this main display room that you see where the magic happens as Spaceship Earth and the rest of this massive Epcot diorama is transformed via projection and display screens.

  1. This is actually surprisingly cool! Much better than the “Blue Sky Cellar” displays we had at DCA when they were doing all of the construction in our park between 2009-12, and those were actually pretty decent too
