BREAKING: Spaceship Earth and Mary Poppins Attraction Previews Removed from the EPCOT Experience, Projects In Doubt
With the official reopening of EPCOT today, we passed by the EPCOT Experience and noticed some minor changes to the film that plays inside the projected theater that could entail big problems for recently-announced reimaginings and projects coming to the park.
Originally thought to become a flat spinner ride, the Mary Poppins project was expanded into its very own neighborhood in the form of “Cherry Tree Lane”, and announced at last year’s D23 Expo. No opening date was ever revealed for the project. Not only was the Mary Poppins segment removed from the show, but the attraction serigraph, photo op, and exhibit case have also been removed from the EPCOT Experience.
The removal of these segments does not indicate that they are necessarily cancelled, but given the need to postpone many projects, they may have been pulled to temper expectations from guests. You can view the new show in our YouTube video below:
