Let’s Wish Walt A Happy Birthday With a Look at His New Statue Coming to EPCOT
We can’t think of a better way to celebrate the birthday of Walt Disney then to share a few details on the whimsical, wonderful and inspirational new Walt Disney Statue coming to EPCOT as part of their plans to reimagine the park.
Details about the statue were first revealed during the D23 Expo back in August of 2019 and followers of Walt Disney Imagineer Zach Riddley were given a heartfelt reminder that the statue is coming soon. Let’s take a look:

Zach said in his post:
Today – on Walt Disney’s birthday – we are reminded of his legacy of hope. Walt showed us all the potential we have to dream of a better future and how important and special it is to bring that future to life. As we shared at D23 Expo last year, that dreamer’s spirit inspired us to feature a new statue of Walt as part of the new World Celebration neighborhood in EPCOT, in a location we are appropriately calling Dreamer’s Point
In addition to the touching statue showcased above, Dreamers Point will also offer spectacular views and will feature lush gardens, a wishing tree and an interactive new fountain. During D23, Disney CEO Bob Chapek said of the project, “You all know that Epcot was Walt’s dream,” Chapek said, “and we all imagine him along with us, looking out from this very spot.”
This is an area of EPCOT that we simply cannot wait to see and we’re excited to share that its inching ever closer. As we previously reported here at MickeyBlog, the new fountain has actually already been added to the maps that you’ll find on My Disney Experience indicating that exciting changes are coming soon! You can find out about that story here.
