It’s no secret that Walt Disney was fascinated by the idea of progress and of moving forward, and no Disney Park exemplifies progress better than EPCOT.

Originally intended to be something totally different than the theme park it is today, EPCOT is technically an acronym for ‘Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow.’ But Guests can see the central theme of ‘tomorrow’ all throughout the Park.

Unlike the quaint, 20th-century theming of Magic Kingdom’s Main Street, U.S.A., EPCOT used to have a themed land dedicated to the future: Future World.

Nowadays, Future World has been revamped and divided into three themed lands: World Discovery, World Nature, and World Celebration.

This revamp has been a part of the Disney Park’s most historical transformation yet, which also included attractions such as Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure in World Showcase, Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind in World Discovery, and the upcoming Journey of Water Inspired By Moana attraction in World Nature.

However, the transformation isn’t over yet! In the EPCOT center, World Celebration, will be two new areas: CommuniCore Plaza and the CommuniCore Hall.

CommuniCore Plaza and CommuniCore Hall are coming to Walt Disney World’s EPCOT in Fall 2023. Disney has also revealed that CommuniCore Hall will offer a new station for Mickey and Minnie Mouse meet-and-greets.

Once World Celebration is finished, it’ll be considered the hub of the theme park and will create a space to celebrate each seasonal festival.
