Disney have big plans for Epcot, the development with be done over multiple years and will see new experiences added that will make the park more Disney, more family, more timeless and more relevant to the millions of guests who visit each year.

Although not strictly theme park related I thought I’d also include the Start Wars hotel news.

Once onboard, guests will interact with characters and become active participants in stories that unfold around them on their galactic journey.
