Disney Imagineer Confirms New Walt Statue to Still Join World Celebration Neighborhood at EPCOT

This past weekend we celebrated Walt Disney’s birthday on December 5. In honor of Walt, a Disney Imagineer took to Instagram to share that a new Walt statue is still in the works for Epcot. With COVID-19 causing delays and some projects to be put on hold, we’re excited the Walt statue is still makes the cut to join Epcot!

 

 

As shared on Instagram by Zach Riddley, Walt Disney World Site Portfolio Executive on December 5:

“Today – on Walt Disney’s birthday – we are reminded of his legacy of hope. Walt showed us all the potential we have to dream of a better future and how important and special it is to bring that future to life. As we shared at D23 Expo last year, that dreamer’s spirit inspired us to feature a new statue of Walt as part of the new World Celebration neighborhood in EPCOT, in a location we are appropriately calling Dreamer’s Point. Walt said, “EPCOT will always be in a state of becoming…” and it’s that spirit of potential and possibility that inspires all we are bringing to life in the transformation of EPCOT. In celebration of today, I hope you’re encouraged to dream big and inspire others as we dream of a better future we can make a reality together.”

About Mike and Jamie Sylvester

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 15 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
