Disney has just released an updated Epcot guide map that showcases some of the upcoming projects set to open in the coming months at the park. We’ll take a tour around the updated Epcot guide map to see what’s new and what has changed from the previous iteration.
First, here’s a look back at the previous Epcot guide map for the 2019 Epcot International Food and Wine Festival. While there are festival-specific items listed here, it’s still a good starting point for comparing old and new.
Here’s a look at the updated Epcot guide map that debuted recently.
A closer look at the map section of the guide map. The first thing you’ll notice is that the orientation of the park has changed. Previously oriented north to south, the guidemap is now a bit more user friendly by flipping the orientation to how you’ll actually experience the park.
We’ll start in Future World, which is where most of the changes take place. The updated Epcot guide map now reflects the changes made to the digital maps with regards to the removal of the Fountain of Nations and expanded construction zones in Future World west.
We can also note that the former Wonders of Life pavilion and former Universe of Energy pavilions have been updated to reflect their new tenants. The flip in orientation has led to the redrawing of some of the pavilions. Imagineering Presents The Epcot Experience is now prominently featured.
Finally, a look at the list of attractions, shops, and more shows some “coming soon” placeholders for future projects such as the Space 220 Restaurant (which is set to open in early 2020 now), Awesome Planet Film (January 2020), Regal Eagle Smokehouse (December 2019), Art of Disney (December 2019), Beauty and the Beast Sing-Along (January 2020), and Canada Far and Wide (January 2020).
