New Attraction Rumored for Epcot’s United Kingdom Pavilion at Walt Disney World

The recent D23 Expo brought a lot of confirmation of new attractions for Walt Disney World.  The rumor mill is still buzzing about various other efforts that Disney may be working on and we caught wind of another one that sounds pretty exciting if it were to be true.  One rumor that keeps coming up is the possibility for a new attraction to be added at the United Kingdom in Epcot’s World Showcase at Walt Disney World.  The rumors include ideas that the attraction could be themed after Mary Poppins, Brave, Alice in Wonderland or even something involving the Loch Ness Monster.

It appears that the front runner in the rumor mill for the most likely theme to be used is Mary Poppins.  Disney will be releasing the new movie, Mary Poppins Returns, in 2018.  This definitely gives guests reason to believe that  Mary Poppins attraction could make a lot of sense for the area, especially after making Mary Poppins more relevant for younger generations.  We have no confirmation on this concept or any idea as to what type of attraction we would expect it to be.  It sounds like an extremely exciting possibility if it were to be formalized.

We do have a new Ratatouille attraction confirmed for the France pavilion, so at least we know one new attraction is coming to the World Showcase.  There is also still a rumor circulating that hasn’t been confirmed yet is that there could be an entirely new pavilion in the works.  This is rumored to be a Brazil pavilion and include an attraction with the development.  This is also still just a rumor with no confirmations.

As always, we will keep you posted as soon as we learn of any formal announcements directly from Disney.

What would you all think of a Mary Poppins attraction at Epcot?

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
