Every week there are changes at Walt Disney World, some big and some small. These are the changes we have highlighted this week that may affect your next vacation.
Deconstruction of the primitive vortex
Primeval Whirl at Disney’s Animal Kingdom continues to move towards extinction, as heavy equipment can be seen that is scrapping the entire attraction. We did not detect any work during the day, so there is no direct impact, but the demolition is visible through the jaws.
Map with neighborhoods in the EPCOT
On October 1, the new “World” neighborhood designations were implemented at EPCOT with World Celebration, World Nature and World Discovery. Now you can also find the new designations on paper maps and on permanent maps in the park.
Old MouseGear gutted
With Creations Shop open, it’s time to start clearing the old MouseGear location completely. There is much more work to be done in this part of EPCOT and therefore the area still looks like an active site in many places with so many walls.
JAMMitors are back
We’re seeing more live entertainment coming back to EPCOT. This week, we saw the JAMMitors bring their drum style to the front of the park.
Sergio is back
Speaking of live entertainment, at World Showcase, Sergio has returned to Italy. His mime and juggling show is a favorite among passersby.
50th scene of the electric water contest
A special scene has been added at the beginning and end of the electric water contest. This brilliant addition highlights the 50th anniversary celebration at Walt Disney World.
The screen on Disney’s desire opens in One Man’s Dream
If you’re excited about Disney’s new cruise, you’ll want to stop by One Man’s Dream at Disney Studios Hollywood. Several items, including the model of the Cinderella statue, works of art and conceptual art around the ship, a model of the ship and mock-ups that will be in the 1923 restaurant.
Minor renovation work in Living with the land
And finally, for this week, we’ve noticed some minor work on Living with the Land. This doesn’t affect the operation of the trip, but it’s nice to see some maintenance work and updating of the fans ’favorite attraction.
