This afternoon we have a quick update on a rumored project that should soon start to take shape in The Land Pavilion. According to some confirmed eye-witnesses (i.e., these are not rumors), the back of the building housing Soarin's has been completely cleared, even though the trailers remain at this time. In addition to that, plenty of markers have been spotted all around the area, including utility flags and other small signs that definitely confirm that plans are moving ahead.


As you will remember, some rumors have been saying that one new theater will soon be added to Soarin' while other sources have stated that they are actually looking into building two new theaters, in effect doubling the hourly capacity of Soarin', which is also going to be replaced by a completely new movie (which will showcase the entire world instead of just California) in the next few years. 

Here is an aerial view of the area where these marks were spotted in the past few days, from Google Earth:


As always, be sure to stay tuned here on Orlando Theme Park News for additional information about future projects such as this and for rumors about possible new developments in the area's theme parks.

While I'm happy Epcot is updating their rides, I think its time for a totally new attraction to bring people to the park

I would also much rather see new attractions than an extension to something existing. Imagination and Energy pavilions need lots of new stuff!

The criticism about the lack of new attractions is certainly fair, but we should also keep in mind that most of us that comment are theme park junkies who are long-time repeat customers. There's a whole new generation of park visitors every year who've never been to Epcot. My point is Disney needs to consider both populations, and the will often conclude a good attraction like Soarin' can continue to entertain new guests, while repeat visitors are always looking for a new reason to come back, otherwise it's just same ole' same ole'...

I agree Epcot needs to update - we travel from a long way away, 17 trips in the past 24 years. Will be there again April 2015. Epcot remains #1, but needs a new feel. Long time since Soaring, Test Track and Mission Space were the new attractions. BUT, still my #1 park in Orlando!

I hate the fact that I can reasonably only ride Soarin' once in a trip. Between the standby wait times, the size of the park, and the FP+ structure, thats about it.

Add a new movie to the mix, and it will become potentially impossible. So expanding capacity is a worthy goal for an attraction that has clearly proven its ability to remain busy.
