After marking its 35th anniversary on October 1, Epcot theme park at Walt Disney World Florida has shined a spotlight on an exciting future of new experiences and attractions.

“It’s been an amazing 35 years,” said George Kalogridis, president of Walt Disney World Resort, during Epcot’s anniversary celebrations over the weekend. “And as we look toward the future, there is so much more on the horizon.

“Epcot has always been, and always will be, an optimistic celebration of the real world – brought to life through the magic of Disney. I promise you the exciting plans we have on the horizon will honour Epcot’s rich legacy of creativity and innovation while continuing to exceed the expectations of our guests, for decades to come.”

In addition, Epcot will also see the development of a new Ratatouille-inspired attraction, along with a new E-ticket Future World attraction based on the world of Guardians of the Galaxy.
