“We call it EPCOT, spelled E-P-C-O-T: Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow. Here it is in larger scale. EPCOT will take its cue from the new ideas and new technologies that are now emerging from the creative centers of American industry. It will be a community of tomorrow that will never be completed, but will always be introducing and testing and demonstrating new materials and systems. And EPCOT will always be a showcase to the world for the ingenuity and imagination of American free enterprise.” – Walt Disney.
Welcome to a hot, sunny day at EPCOT! Take a trip around with us as we discover what lies in store. Let’s jump in!
Our view from the monorail gave us a great look at all of the many areas under construction throughout the park, such as Moana – Journey of Water, Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, Creations Shop, and More.
Once on the ground, we took a closer look at the construction for the upcoming Creations Shop and Re-imagined Club Cool. We’ve also seen the addition of 2 new booths inside of the construction area recently.
We’re getting ready to blast through space on Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, so take a look as construction progresses on the attraction. Today we found that they had extended the scrim throughout the area to cover more land.
Say hello to everyone’s favorite imaginary friend, Bing Bong! Or at least say hello to a projected version of him inside of the Imagination! Pavilion. These Bing Bong projections have recently lit up near “Imagination Land” and feature unique sound effects whenever they appear. These can be found at the exit of Journey Into Imagination With Figment.
We found a certain little chef hanging out at the Hawai’i EPCOT International Food and Wine booth. Can you spot him? To hear all of our thoughts on this year’s Hawai’i booth, click here.
EPCOT International Food and Wine Festival is in full swing, so make sure to take a trip around the world and try some of this year’s delicious dishes! To hear about all of the festival offerings, make sure to check out the full menus here.
Mickey and Minnie wish guests farewell as they exit the park.
And that brings us to the end of our day at EPCOT. Thanks for following us around! Which upcoming project are you most excited to see in this park? Leave us a comment below, letting us know! Have a great day; we’ll “see ya real soon!”
