According to The Disney Parks Blog, Epcot will be undergoing renovations for an addition of “The Play Pavilion.” It will be located in the Wonders of Life pavilion, bringing more character interactions, as well as new activities and entertainment. “The Play Pavilion” is expected to open in time for the 50th anniversary of the park. This is a way to revamp the pavilion with a new look and improve some much needed appliances.

“This innovative, new pavilion is beyond anything we’ve ever created and is completely unique to Epcot,” said Zach Riddley, portfolio executive, Walt Disney Imagineering. “Built on the power of play, it introduces an immersive and interactive ‘city’ where you can explore, create, and interact with some of your favorite Disney characters. This is an experience worthy of our bold vision for Epcot – and another signature element of our transformation.”

Aside from the new pavilion, Disney also announced that Epcot will also be getting a new look at the entrance of the park. There will be new pathways, and a new fountain. More details are still to come.
