Disney has confirmed that the World Celebration neighborhood at EPCOT will begin welcoming guests in December 2023.

Disney says that World Celebration will unite the front of the park, tying together the other two new EPCOT neighborhoods, World Discovery and World Nature.

The completion of the last of the park’s three neighborhoods is the latest major milestone in EPCOT’s multi-year transformation.

I like that they seem decently mix-and-matchy.

I want the hoodie! 🤣

New costumes are somehow both classic Epcot and 2023-appropriate. Glad someone can thread that needle!

These costumes look great!

Most of the new costumes designed recently finally look like they’re designed for CMs who have to be out in the 100°+ heat and rain. Just a welcome change for them for sure

Nice update! I like these better than most recent ones, which I think were the solid color with a SSE emblem on the top left? Maybe I'm thinking of the new event costume.

Well, actually, iridescence does make sense for sea water. Waves crashing creates color shifts. And it sparkles! Hmmm... wonder if they thought about Elmer's glue and glitter...

Don’t you mean EARidescence?!?!

Yeah this is why I’m hoping there’s been a miscommunication somewhere, I really don’t want to see that here. I’m still burned out from the over saturation of it during the 50th.

Am I alone in never having liked the purple? I don't exactly love the orange going on now either, but the original shade always looked horrific to me. I feel like someone's either making something up or misunderstood.

I'm having a hard time understanding why anyone would even want an entire building painted with iridescence, faux or not.

Would be nice to see "something else" get repainted...

If it means what it did for the 50th, then it means a faux iridescence, unfortunately.
