The Transformation of Epcot
The Transformation of Epc
This year Epcot in Orlando has gone all out to celebrate life in art, entertainment and food. Here, we’re giving you a sneak peek at what’s happening at Epcot now and what to look forward to later in 2019:
Epcot’s International Flower & Garden Festival – March 6thto June 3rd
This year’s exhibition has gone all out, with 700 gardens, 240 floating flower planters and 30 flower towers. Every year over one hundred Walt Disney World gardeners get to work, creating the most amazing Disney character topiaries and ensuring every flower is in full bloom. New additions this year include outdoor kitchens, a ‘Washed Ashore’ penguin sculpture and a new play garden. There will be guided tours through the gardens and English tea parties as well as the return of the popular ‘Rock Garden’ series.
Guardians of the Galaxy ‘Awesome Mix Live’
Returning to Epcot from June 14ththrough August 18this the ever popular Guardians of the Galaxy ‘Awesome Mix Live’. Jam with the alien band from Xandar, with Starlord belting out some classic 70’s and 80’s hits.
The theme continues with the development of the ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ new ride system. This new, one-of-a-kind storytelling rollercoaster connects the adventure with the thrill of the rollercoaster. It will be one of the world’s longest rollercoasters when it opens at Future World in Epcot, due 2021.
Epcot Forever Firework Spectacular
Epcot Forever is a limited-time experience which will debut in fall 2019 and will feature classic Epcot tunes. Expect epic fireworks, music, lighting, lasers, and special effects kites.
Ratatouille Experience at the French Pavilion
Epcot have also announced ‘Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure’ coming soon to Epcot’s French Pavilion, followed by the same named adventure ride. Watch this space.
All these new additions at Epcot are part of the lead up to Walt Disney World’s 50thAnniversary in 2021, set to be the most spectacular celebration in the resort’s history!
