Walt Disney’s birthday is one week from today, and Disney has just announced that guests who visit EPCOT can see the brand new statue of his likeness at Dreamers Point in the newly-opened World Celebration neighborhood on Tuesday, December 5, Walt’s birthday. The company’s original dreamer will appear in a completely new way and everyone is invited to imagine alongside Walt himself as they look out over World Celebration Gardens together.
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.Disney Parks Blog
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 Parks Blog
