New walkway opens between World Celebration and World Nature in EPCOT

Mar 22, 2023 in "EPCOT"

World Celebration to World Nature walkway
Posted: Wednesday March 22, 2023 12:10pm ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

Disney has taken another small step toward completing the center of EPCOT by opening a new walkway between World Celebration and World Nature.

The walkway runs alongside Journey of Water Inspired by Moana, and gives guests a quick route from Spaceship Earth to the Living Seas area.

The new path gives guests more routes through the park and will help with crowding during the busy opening and closing at EPCOT.

Oh wow… I was just looking at this literally the other day. Brought a friend over to read the words so he could better understand what the real EPCOT Center once stood for. So much more the beer and food festivals back then… -

Indeed! I've happened to obtain the new wording: "To all who come to this place of Synergy, Activations and misplaced IP: Welcome EPCOT is inspired by Walt Disney Studios' creative vision. Here, IP is celebrated through relevancy, timeless activations, and malfunctioning lighting that promises exciting and overcrowded festivals for all. May EPCOT pander, irritate, and above all, instill a new sense of belief and pride in personkind's ability to turbocharge Disney+ subscriptions that offers hope to shareholders everywhere."

Hopefully they make the plaque say EPCOT Center on the first line again (or EPCOT in all caps at the bare minimum). Surprised they never rededicated the park, maybe they realized that would look bad with how little major change actually happened in the grand scheme of things.

Perhaps they're rewriting it to become more timeless, more relevant, and more Disney?

Dedication plaque has been removed, looks like it’s finally getting replaced soon to bring it in line with all the new signage.
