Disney World stands out for keeping its parks cool, fun, and entertaining! This year was no exception as the park was full of activity. With that in mind, it’s time to discuss what’s new at Disney World theme parks and what’s next.
Disney parks are constantly changing as they add new attractions and redesign old attractions.
Although the park has undergone major changes in the years leading up to its 40th anniversary, Epcot still took the time to introduce a few new surprises.
World Celebration Pavilion
This is also the perfect place to enjoy an evening show in the garden. A Journey into Imagination with Figment is the third and latest incarnation of a dark attraction in the imagination! Pavilion on the west side of Future World (now renamed World Celebration)
Travel through Epcot’s past, present and future during this limited-time fireworks display.
In the Land Pavilion, this film explores the spectacular beauty, diversity, and dynamic history of the earth with theatrical effects such as wind, smell, and water. The film was produced in collaboration with the Disney Conservation Fund with narration by Modern ABC’s Family star Ty Burrell and original music by Oscar-winning composer Steven Price.
Beauty and the Beast
At the Palais du Cinémais des Pavilion in France, this 15-minute entertainment program is directed and produced by Don Hahn, producer of the animated and live-action film “Beauty and the Beast“.
