Show #254: Epcot News and Rumors

Posted by TheDisneyNerdsPodcast in Epcot, Rumors

More Disney, More Family, More Timeless and More Relevant! That’s what the Vice President of Epcot told us during the Epcot 35 celebration last year. So, what's been happening? Are the announcements form the D23 Expo last year going to happen? Guardians of the Galaxy, Ratatouille, China Circle Vision, Mission Space Green, Mission Space Restaurant and the Disney Skyliner... This week we take a look at the progress Disney has made over the past year... while most announced attractions are scheduled to open for the Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary 2021, progress is being made every day. In addition, we take a look at some disney patent filings to see how they fit the new attractions, and speculate on the latest Epcot Rumor mill along with a look at the $2.2 Billion overall project that will completely change Epcot. Put on your walking shoes, it's going to be a wild ride this week.
