As guests pass Spaceship Earth, they will discover a breathtaking new view of World Showcase from Dreamers Point. World Celebration will soon feature a new statue that honors the legacy of the original dreamer, Walt Disney.
This new statue, entitled ‘Walt the Dreamer,’ represents Walt later in his life when he was dreaming up the overall Florida Project and the Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow. He sits with a sense of fulfillment, enjoying the beauty of his realized dream: a park that represents pure optimism and truly celebrates the magic of possibility. The statue will make its debut in the newly-opened World Celebration neighborhood on Tuesday, December 5th, Walt Disney's birthday.
"This new statue of Walt is one of many areas to visit as a part of World Celebration Gardens where guests will be able to relax, unwind, and connect – to EPCOT, to nature and to each other. Each of the gardens found in the center of World Celebration, including Dreamers Point, will connect back to the areas surrounding them, drawing on the architectural legacy of EPCOT, modern lighting elements and a variety of natural textures." – Disney
Surrounding this enchanted garden is Creations Shop, Club Cool, Connections Cafe and Eatery, and a newly reimagined festival area that, once open, will be home to ever-changing events in a unique new environment.
