Started on October 1st 2019, Walt Disney World’s Epcot experience is permanently closed from today. The Epcot showcased planned park attractions for over 2 million guests. Located in Odyssey Pavilion, the Walt Disney World’s Epcot was a replacement of Epcot Legacy Showplace.
The Epcot Experience intended to showcase the relentless energy, excitement and innovation encouraging the park’s current evolution. The showcase exhibited a gallery of art, a scale model and a 360 degree movie presentation that previewed planned attractions for the park. Amongst many other things during the pandemic, the exhibit also remained closed briefly.
Through a social media handle, Zach Riddley, Disney Imagineer announced that the Epcot will be permanently closed down from 14th march 2022. Riddley explained in his caption ,” With the transformation now well under way and many of those projects now open – including Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure, Harmonious and the upcoming debut of Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind this summer – we have decided it is time to close the EPCOT Experience on March 14 and make way for exciting new activations of the Odyssey pavilion to create a great experience for our guests. “
Riddley also shared his emotions expressing thankfulness to the team of Epcot, he said “I always like to say to our team that EPCOT is a park about people – our dreams, our curiosity and our ability to make magic possible when we work together.”
Disney still hasn’t confirmed anything on the replacement of Epcot in regard what will be in the Odyssey Pavilion next. Surely it’s not going to remain empty for long, since from the past the Odyssey Pavilion has seen a lot of seasonal attractions. Although this news may not be much heart-warming one for some guest of the Epcot, for the future, Riddley did promise about exciting adventures soon to make their way.
