Epcot to get new nighttime show, character meet area, and more

Epcot has undergone a multi-year transformation, and some of the work will finally be completed in late 2023. While there will still be some construction, guests can experience the park’s hub in a new way with the opening of several key areas. Here is a new look at the Epcot construction updates.

Epcot Construction Updates for World Celebration

Fall 2023 will see the completion of the neighborhood World Celebration. It is the park’s hub and will be home to gardens that reflect seasonal changes. It will also be home to Communicore Plaza and Communicore Hall.

Dreamer’s Point Completed by Fall 2023

World Celebration will be home to Dreamer’s Point. This area is being called an “inspiring overlook” and will feature the Walt Disney statue “Walt the Dreamer,” shown first at the D23 Expo.

Journey of Water, Inspired by Moana

The outdoor experience, Journey of Water, inspired by Moana, will offer a chance to interact with water as it travels from the sky to the ocean and back again. While moving through the experience, guests will learn the importance of water and discover its “playful personality”- just as Moana did.

New Epcot Nighttime Spectacular
