EPCOT’s Newest Update Gives Iconic Characters Even More Time In the Spotlight

Would you believe us if we told you that even more changes are coming to EPCOT in the coming months? In the past couple of years, the Disney Park has been undergoing a historical transformation, unlike anything Walt Disney World Resort has ever seen before. New attractions, experiences, and themed lands are being built. The new additions include attractions such as Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure, Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, and Journey of Water, Inspired by Moana.

Although the transformation isn’t complete yet (much of the construction was delayed due to the pandemic), there’s another significant change coming to EPCOT. Specifically, EPCOT’s vast parking lot.

Unfortunately, it’s not the parking trams. Even though it was promised that the theme park essentials would be returning to all Disney Parks by the end of 2022, EPCOT is still going without parking trams at the time of this article’s publication.

Instead of parking trams, EPCOT is getting new parking lot signs!

Parking lot signs are a staple of all Walt Disney World Resort Parks. They’re a fun, extra magical way for visiting Guests to remember where they’ve parked! The new additions to EPCOT’s parking lot will include characters that appear in the futuristic Disney Park, such as WALL-E, Eve, Moana, HeiHei, Crush, Dory, Rocket, and Gamora.

Not only that but the expansive parking lot will also be split into two sections: Earth and Space. There’s also news of EPCOT’s auto plaza sign being redesigned later this month, although we don’t know what the new design will look like just yet.
