As you can see from the post above, Zach confirms that Imagineers are hard at work on the new Creations Shop that will be coming to EPCOT this Summer along with Club Cool.
In reimagining the Future World area of EPCOT, Imagineers are going back to the origins of EPCOT. This includes Walt’s original radial plan.
If you’re a Disney fan, you’ll no doubt know that Walt intended EPCOT to be a living, working city.
As you can see from these stunning and elaborate blueprints, Walt had a circular organization in mind that placed all of the aspects of EPCOT into distinct zones. He also imagined a transportation system that would connect all these areas.
I’m always amazing at how even today it looks like an astonishing model for the future of urban design.
Looking back at the history of EPCOT, Walt’s vision helped guide Imagineers into creating different versions of Future World. In the 80s Future World and CumminiCore were at the heart of the EPCOT experience.
It will continue to be focal point as Imagineers continue their reimagining of the park, elements of which will be unveiled this Summer!
Imagineer Zach will be updating us throughout the Summer regarding the exciting changes coming to one of EPCOT’s new neighborhoods – World Celebration. Follow along with him on Instagram and keep checking in with us here at MickeyBlog for further news and updates.
