New information is continuing to come out about summer at Walt Disney World. So, we’ve updated our calendar of events to help you keep your plans in order. We’ve added a few more items to the list and added specific dates to items.
When it opened, EPCOT Center’s Future World tried to capture the ideals that went into Walt Disney’s original plan for future urban communities. Since that opening many of the pavilions have taken on new focuses or been left to age. While time has taken its neighbors in different directions, The Land pavilion has not only maintained its focus but the spirit of the original EPCOT plan.
Learning With The Land
Future World was built around a unique style of “edutainment” that was meant to inform and inspire visiting guests. With each pavilion focusing on a different area, passing tourists would be able to learn a little bit about different areas. The Land took this one step further and actually attempts to learn as well.
No one can deny that this is a year of change for Walt Disney World and Disney Parks in general. Here in Florida, however, some of the biggest changes are well underway. While we still wait on an official timeline for the new lands coming to Hollywood Studios, this week saw a lot of official information coming out.
We tend to avoid news here because we can’t hope to keep up with some of the other site out there but with all of the new info that hit we felt it would be wrong to completely ignore it. So we decided to help consolidate everything that we learned. We broke down everything we learned by month and then, where available, specific day. Here, we have compile all the information we have about what, and when, to expect at Walt Disney World as they attempt to Awaken Summer!
As a child, I had the benefit of growing up near Walt Disney World. Cinderella’s Castle and Spaceship Earth became common sights as I was lucky enough to enjoy the benefits of being a seasonal passholder. The bright colors and catchy songs of Fantasyland amazed my young self and then, in later years, I became fascinated by the world brought to life by EPCOT Center’s Future World.
By the time I had reached high school, I had fallen out of the Disney bubble. I stopped connecting with the material like I had before. It wasn’t cool to be super into the cartoons and songs associated with the Disney brand and I admit to falling into that misguided thinking. Once an adult, I stopped caring about “cool” but it didn’t become financially reasonable to return to the place I had so enjoyed as a kid.
Nowadays it is pretty hard to miss the fact that Disney Parks are going through a bunch of updates and expansions. A lot of exciting new experiences are on their way and quite a few icons of a generation are also on their way out. There is no doubt that all of the new attractions will breathe a new life into their respective areas but there are still many areas that have been kind of forgotten. So today we’ll look at some areas that could use a lot of attention and would go a long way to updating Walt Disney World.
