Epcot’s World Showcase is a major part of guests’ experience bringing culture, cuisine and architecture from around the world to one location.  Here guests can eat food from Japan while having a drink from Germany and then take a ride through Mexico.  Now more than ever there is more to see, do and of course eat in Epcot’s World Showcase.  Learn what exciting new experiences are on the horizon for Epcot’s World Showcase moving forward.


1. Mary Poppins Attraction

We will start off with the biggest surprise of them all a Mary Poppins themed attraction coming to the United Kingdom Pavilion.  Disney announced that guests will be able to step in time down Cherry Tree line right into the Banks’ house #17.  Beyond this information, and the art release for the attraction, not much is known at the time.  All we do know is that the popular Mary Poppins will be receiving her very own attraction and that is supercalifragilistic.

2. Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure

Work is already well under way on the newest ride coming to the World Showcase.  Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure will be located in the France Pavilion.  Here guests will be shrunk down to the size of Remy where they are able to help him throughout his adventures in Paris.  Already a guest favorite in Disneyland Paris, this ride will be opening in Epcot in 2020.  Using 3D affects and a new, innovative trackless ride system, Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure is going to be a crowd favorite.

3. Beauty and the Beast Sing Along

Although we don’t know many details, the new Beauty and the Beast Sing Along has been highly anticipated by guests.  With a hopeful opening in January 2020, this new production will be sharing time with the classic Impressions de France.  With Don Hahn, producer of the animated and live action productions, working on the performance it is sure to be a tale we won’t want to miss.

5. HarmonioUS

Following Epcot Forever, it was announced at D23 that HarmonioUS will be the newest evening show at Epcot.  This show is said to be the largest nighttime spectacular seen.  With massive floating sets, moving fountains, lights, pyrotechnics, lasers and more guests will be amazed at this outstanding show.  Be prepared to be inspired as music and storytelling brings us all together.


6. Skyliner

Opening at the end of the month (September 29th) will be the highly anticipated Disney’s Skyliner.  This new transportation system will allow guests to travel between resorts as well as Epcot and Hollywood Studios.  With a major hub located in the World Showcase (back by France) access to the World Showcase will be easier than ever before.  Catching dinner, drinks, and entertainment at Epcot will be a breeze with the skyliner dropping guests off right at the International Gateway entrance.  Moving forward, guests will want to take advantage of this opportunity when planning their trips.

7. New Films

Two new and updated films are coming to Disney’s World Showcase.  O’ Canada will be replaced in early 2020 with Canada Far and Wide.  New scenes and stories will be brought to guests in a fantastic 360-degree Circlevision.  In the China Pavilion, a new updated film called Wondrous China will take guests on a journey across the country in the same 360-degree film as Canada is using.  These two films will bring guests a great option during crowded, hot times in Disney.

8. New Food Option

With all the delicious food options throughout the World Showcase, it is hard to imagine more coming but this is the case.  In the France Pavilion, guests will be able to enjoy either a quick service or table service creperie called La Creperie de Paris.  Brought to the area by famous Chef Jerome Bocuse, this will allow guests to enjoy a delicious and authentic crepe while visiting World Showcase.

Epcot will be going through enormous changes throughout the next few years and World Showcase is no exception.  From the soon opening Disney Skyliner to Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure, there are so many amazing new adventures coming to Epcot’s World Showcase.

About Jennifer Retzlaff

My name is Jennifer Retzlaff and I became a lifelong Disney fan during my first trip to Walt Disney World in 6th grade. From that moment, Disney became a big part of my life. I live in Iowa with my husband and two kids who are growing up too quickly for my liking. I started introducing my love for Disney early to my family with a Disney honeymoon and then trips when our youngest of 18 months. Since then, our family has been to Walt Disney World over five times and we continue to plan and dream for the next trip. I love the magic that Disney brings to people through the theme parks, cruises, adventures and movies they create. As a teacher, I try to bring that magic into my classroom to help kids believe that “If You Can Dream It, You Can Do It.” I recently reached a dream of mine as I joined Magic Vacation Planner as a personal travel advisor. With this team, I can now help others plan magical vacations. As a passionate writer, I also have my own blog at magicalvacationsbyjen which is also where you can follow me on instagram for trip reviews along with tips and tricks for your next magical vacation.
