Posted: Monday August 23, 2021 12:55pm ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

The children's playground in EPCOT'S Future World East has been updated as a new Tiana-themed area.

Announced as part of Disney's 'World Princess Week,' Disney said, "It's an awesome offering guests can enjoy during the kick-off of Walt Disney World Resort's 50th anniversary celebration."

The playground has gone through a couple of theme changes over the years, including a Wreck It Ralph overlay.

The latest version featuring Tiana is a very light overlay of what was already there. There have been no additional activities added or any expansion of the playground.

You can find the playground across from Test Track in Future World East.

Princess zoomies. In conjunction with the other "art," it becomes clear it is a stylized contrail of princess magic, in Tiana colors.

It’s not called a teeter totter. It’s the “Get a Friend on the Other Side” Apparatus.

Only for the teeter totter

I get confused as to what's Play Zone or Play! Pavilion... ...not to be confused with Avengers Campus in DCA, also known as Cosplay Pavilion.

Rhetorical? Even the sticker designs are lazy. I do wonder though if this isn't just a playground vendor that is contractually obligated to redesign. Is Disney just renting it? This definitely isn't Disney quality. But it's not like that hasn't slipped considerably in the last decade.

This hallowed ground once housed WoM, Horizons and UoE. Now, off the shelf $150 toddler playground equipment with cartoon stickers. Do they have no shame? No professional pride whatsoever?

Just a head scratcher, at least to me.
