Epcot's Innoventions will be welcoming a new exhibit later this year with the addition of Glidden's Colortopia.

The paint manufacturer's Colortopia exhibit will be located in Innoventions East, and will feature a narrated tour with interactive activities. A mobile app and website will also be part of the exhibit.

“Pairing the magic of the park experience with the magical role color plays in our lives is an exciting opportunity for the Glidden brand,” said Mark Lancia, senior brand manager – Glidden, a brand of PPG Architectural Coatings. “We’re excited to share the Colortopia experience with the park’s visitors from around the world.”

The paint manufacturer has an existing relationship with Disney via its licensing deal with Disney paints sold at Walmart -

Look for Glidden's Colortopia to open at Epcot late fall 2015.

I recently visited this attraction and I really enjoyed it. Is it necessary for a first time visitor? no. For those of us who go frequently and enjoy something new to do, it is a breath of fresh air. Fun, interesting and entertaining.

I actually liked this exhibit when we were there in December.

Baymax is already meeting in Innoventions, across from the Mickey, Minnie and Goofy meet and greet.

Saw this on Twitter, not sure if true or where to post

I actually think this exhibit fits very well here in Epcot, and I really hope they have more educational/fun offerings like this one.

Well slap me with a silly paint stirrer and color me impressed. Colortopia is just what the doctor ordered!

Interesting. I guess my ADHD always kicked in before I got down to that last part because I don't recall that particular phraseology.

I think you need to refer to the dedication plaque: To all who come to this Place of Joy, Hope and Friendship WELCOME Epcot is inspired by Walt Disney's creative vision. Here, human achievements are celebrated through imagination, wonders of enterprise and concepts of a future that promises new and exciting new paint colors for all. May EPCOT Center entertain, inform and inspire and, above all, may it instill a new sense of color and pride in man's ability to paint a world that offers hope to people everywhere. E. Cardon Walker Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Walt Disney Productions October 24, 1982

Curious which theme that would be?

I didn't know what to expect when this was announced, but it sounds pretty cool to me and in keeping with the Epcot theme. I hope it sticks around long enough for us to see it some day.

I would say the answer to your question is "No, you are not alone. Rejoice and be happy."

Though, I am not sure the Crayola Experience is marketed towards tourists. While I am positive its a lure for those with kids especially given that the Florida Mall is a major tourist destination. I think the crayola experience is more locally marketed.

Well.. Technically those 30 valuable minutes of my $100 theme park ticket are wasted in Epcot with this thing when I could be doing..... Uh.... Well...... .....Yea. Smart move, Glidden. o.o
