Epcot is getting a pretty significant dose of magic added to it in the coming years. Today during a presentation at Destination D: Celebrating Mickey Mouse Bob Chapek, Chairman of Disney Parks, Experiences and Consumer Products, shared details about what is in store for Epcot.
It is already known that France is receiving a Ratatouille attraction. Today Chapek shared that the name of that attraction will be Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure. He also shared that produce Don Hahn is working on a sing-a-long show based on Beauty and the Beast. Hahn was a producer on both the animated and live-action films of the same name.
Canada is in process of updating its 360-degree show, O Canada! Currently, the show is hosted by Canadian comedian Martin Short. The first version of this movie opened in 1982. The current version replaced it in 2007.
As was previously announced, Illuminations: Reflections of Earth will be saying goodbye next fall. Chapek announced that it will be replaced for a limited time by Epcot Forever. This temporary experience will celebrate the music of Epcot with classic Epcot tunes. It will start with a spark of imagination and grow into a spectacular fireworks finale! The show will feature fireworks, music, lighting, lasers, and special effects kites.
In 2020 a spectacular new night show will be arriving at Epcot. This show will share how Disney music inspires people around the world! It will include massive floating set pieces, custom-built LED panels, choreographed moving fountains, lights, pyrotechnics, and lasers. Expect this show to be a culmination of all the nighttime magic has developed around the globe for its Disney Parks.
