Epcot at Walt Disney World is poised to get a new look this autumn with the addition of four new activities. As part of the park’s 50th anniversary celebration, a new ride, a musical event, and two new eateries will debut in the following weeks.
Harmonious will be released on October 1 as part of the world’s most spectacular event. It will include a variety of Disney tunes and will be “one of the largest evening spectaculars ever conceived for a Disney park and a significant milestone in Epcot’s development.”
Visitors will be treated to a sample of familiar Disney tunes with fresh renditions at Harmonious. They will be performed in over a dozen languages by vocalists from around the world, including well-known stars as well as others who will be heard for the first time by audiences.
Topping the list is Luis Fonsi, one of the world’s best-selling musicians, who will collaborate with Joy on a pan-Latin rendition of Coco’s Saludos Amigos.
A mashup from Moana and Hercules by Danny Gokey, Elisha Garrett, and Ninet Tayeb; “Dig a Little Deeper” by Bryson Camper, Karen Clark Sheard, and Kierra Sheard; and songs from Aladdin, Mulan, and The Jungle Book by a slew of foreign singers are among the other highlights. The tunes will be intertwined with a new Epcot anthem written by composer Pinar Toprak.
“The resulting ensemble is a magnificent cultural symphony unlike anything heard before,” Disney promises.
Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure
Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure , the park’s newest attraction, will also debut on October 1.
This experience, based on characters and scenes from the 2007 animated film, will make you feel like you’ve shrunk to the size of a rat as you scurry around Gusteau’s, the Paris bistro where Remy demonstrated his culinary abilities in the film.
La Crêperie de Paris
There is no minimum height restriction for Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure, which is part of a newly enlarged France pavilion that will also open within Epcot on October 1. La Crêperie de Paris, a new restaurant, will serve crepes, buckwheat galettes, and French hard cider, among other things.
Space 220 Restaurant
La Crêperie de Paris isn’t the only new restaurant opening this fall. Space 220 restaurant, which will be located next to the Mission: Space attraction, will open in mid-September.
Guests will check in in the departure lounge before boarding a space elevator to the Centauri Space Station, which seems to be 220 miles above Earth. Inside the eating room, you’ll witness a panoramic view of the Earth below, as well as a variety of activities taking on outside the restaurant’s windows.
Fine dining choices, gourmet dishes, a two-course prix fixe lunch menu, and a three-course prix fixe evening menu will be available. A selection of themed beverages will also be available as part of the experience.
