Epcot Update: Flower & Garden Festival, New Ride Construction, & More (PART 1)

There's so much going on at Epcot. In addition to the recently-announced refurbishment of the park's entrance area and the new play pavilion replacing the former Wonders of Life, construction continues in the future sites of the new Guardians of the Galaxy roller coaster, the Ratatouille dark ride, the new space-themed restaurant, the new Japanese restaurant, and more.

Let's take a look around the park to see what's new, including the beautiful flower arrangements that were created for this year's Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival. We hope you'll enjoy this virtual tour of the park!

  1. Something tells me there will come a day soon when monorails will no longer be running.

  2. The report from Multiple sources is that the New Monorail trains have been ordered. The issue is Due to the unique design requirements, Existing Stations, and the Contemporary pass threw the trains have to be heavily customized so it will take several years for them to be designed, fabricated and then to arrive onsite.
