BREAKING: Monorail Mark X Attraction Coming to Play! Pavilion in EPCOT

Last updated:

Hidden deep within “The Disney Monorail: Imagineering a Highway in the Sky”, a new book by Jeff Kurtti, Vanessa Hunt, and Paul Wolski, which looks back at the creation of the Disney monorail and its impact on transportation systems across the globe, lies a secret about the ever-changing future of EPCOT: a new Monorail Mark X attraction coming to the Play!

The book is set to be officially released on September 1, 2020, but review copies have been distributed, and thanks to Imaginerding on YouTube, we have a closer look at the art for the upcoming attraction:
