Wasted Spaces at WDW – Epcot
Enclosed within 47 square miles, Disney World is roughly the size of San Francisco. There are 4 theme parks, 2 water parks, 4 golf clubs, 2 mini golf parks and countless Disney resorts and Good Neighbors. Sounds like that space should be pretty full but there are untouched acres, empty spaces and under utilized areas in otherwise populated spots.
Epcot has room for several more countries tucked in greenery between existing sponsor countries. Rumor has it we will hear more about a new addition at the D23 Convention this year. My guess is Brazil but Joe would like Portugal.
The Wonders of Life Pavilion was home to classic attractions such as Body Wars, which was kind of like Star Tours if Yoda was a doctor and Darth Vader was an infection. The Making of Me was a film narrated by Martin Short that was literally about making babies. Sad that I missed that! Now the building is the seasonally used as the Festival Center. We saw recently it was getting a paint job. Hopefully this will be totally rehabbed.
The Odessey and Inoventions are also just waiting for the next great update. I think of the endless possibilities for them. Getting off Spaceship Earth into a new area stressing our global community would be super.
What would you put in the empty or seldom used spots in Epcot?
