The pillars around the splash pad used to be purple, and the liquid layer itself was several different colors in an angular design.

The main color of World Discovery is red, while World Celebration is blue and World Nature is green. The three neighborhoods used to be the single Future World.

CommuniCore Hall will include the new permanent Mickey & Friends meet and greet space, an art gallery, a demo kitchen, and more.
