This week, Walt Disney World Resort has quietly announced a few changes coming to the beloved Epcot. Most of the changes will be tanging place in Future World, as an epic transformation begins. The changes will all be official just in time for Walt Disney World’s 50th anniversary in 2021! These changes include everything from a new pavilion to a sparkling new entrance.
