The new EPCOT guidemap released on October 1 at the start of Walt Disney World's 50th anniversary shows the new neighborhoods of EPCOT as the park continues its redevelopment.

In place of Future World, the new map shows the neighborhoods of World Celebration, World Discovery and World Nature. World Showcase remains as before.

Interestingly, the map continues to show the previously announced PLAY! pavilion in World Discovery. PLAY! received no mentions during the recent media updates, despite the adjacent Guardians of the Galaxy Cosmic Rewind being confirmed to open in 2022.

Not even a slight hint of what used to be there. Very depressing.

Did they make that roof on Communicore Hall strong enough to hold a roof garden?

Spaceship Earth's beacon was noted to be a permanent change unlike the other beacons.

This may not be the right topic but has there been any indication if SSE's Beacons of light will be more or less "permanent" once the 50th is over? We really love the look this gives SSE and the nightly shows are incredible. Thank you.

I think it’s an acknowledgement nothing is in the hopper for delivery in 2024 so they’ve slid this back in the queue

Dreamers point still shows up as a search result, it only goes 404 when you click on it. Could just be a server issue or something with the backend.

Journey of Water also 404s. What's odd is this is linked from the root EPCOT page Curiouser and curiouser

IIRC the Late 2023 for Dreamers Point was added at the same time it was added to the page for Journey of Water, which also has a Stitch Ate the Page error today.

Yeah, I looked at it when you posted it, and it definitely had it. I tried to Wayback Machine it yesteday too, and the page was unarchived, so maybe it was relatively new to begin with?

Uh oh. Yesterday it said opening late 2023, I didn’t get a screenshot though.

Odd. That's a 404 now.
