New Details Released For The Upcoming PLAY! Pavilion At Epcot
Today at the D23 Expo 2019, Disney Parks, Experiences and Products Chairman Bob Chapek, joined by Zach Riddley of Walt Disney Imagineering and other special guests, made several exciting announcements about the future of Epcot. During his presentation he gave us more details on the new Play! pavilion opening in time for the 50th anniversary of Walt Disney World.
The new pavilion will include first-of-their-kind experiences devoted to playful fun with games, activities and experiences that connect them with friends, family and beloved Disney characters, both real and virtual. Also, guests will have the chance to help legendary fashion icon Edna Mode on her quest to rid the world of uninspired style, or make a splash competing in a water-balloon fight hosted by Huey, Dewey, Louie and Webby.
The PLAY! Pavilion will come to life under the vast dome of the pavilion previously known as Wonders of Life (more recently the Festival Center).
“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.”
