EPCOT to get overhaul
« on: November 19, 2016, 07:39:20 PM »
Details are thin on the ground at the moment, but EPCOT will be getting an overhaul at some point. At Destination D at WDW, Bob Chapek (Chairman of Parks & Resorts) had this to say...
Quote
Chapek stated that he was telling Imagineers to “dream big” in fixing the park. Bob also stated that changes and additions will be “Disney, timeless, relevant, and family friendly”. He also stated that Epcot would remain true to its original vision.

EPCOT definitely needs some attention, but I hope the spirit of the park stays roughly the same. Love the atmosphere there.

Nothing specific, but I hear that "more characters" are on the way. I'm guessing that means more attractions shoehorned into the World Showcase.

I suppose the idea of Remy l'Adventure appearing in France is more a certainty now. After all I doubt they'd do an Aristocats ride. ;)

Wouldn't it be great if they did decide to complete the never-built World Showcase attactions? Such as the Rhine River Cruise.
