The EPCOT Experience, which offered a preview of upcoming EPCOT Pavilions and attractions, is now closed permanently, as announced a few days ago. The Odyssey Events Pavilion is closed while the EPCOT Experience is removed.

On the Test Track side of the pavilion, a rope blocks the doors.

A sign hanging from the rope reads “The Odyssey Events Pavilion is currently closed.”

We could still see the remnants of a photo-op inside.

Today is only its first day closed, so likely not a lot has been removed yet.

Watch our tour of the EPCOT Experience from its initial opening in 2019. The previews of the “Mary Poppins” attraction and Spaceship Earth reimagining were later removed, though CEO Bob Chapek has stated these may come to fruition when the company has more funds.

  1. It is one the most iconic locations to see and quintessential EPCOT but it has seeminghly been closed most of my life and visits except for a few times. Such a waste of a beautiful space…hopefully something tremendous will eventually find a permanent home there.

  2. This closure is symbolic of sad state of EPCOT.

    They should bring back the Odyssey restaurant as food sells well in EPCOT, especially when its in air conditioning..

  3. This maybe sound a little off but I wonder if the bathrooms are close. Only reason I would take my daughter in there on the way out bc it was alway less crowded
