As Orlando-area theme parks look to slowly begin reopening, we are starting to learn more about many of the projects expected to debut this year.
Capital spending across Disney parks worldwide has been cut back by $900 million. This doesn’t mean most of these projects have been outright canceled. Instead, many have been delayed while Disney looks to keep offsetting the dramatic losses they’re currently facing. Even once construction in the parks does resume, some projects will be postponed for various reasons.
No park has more currently in the works than Epcot. Some of the more distant projects, such as the Mary Poppins flat ride that was announced for the U.K. pavilion, have been rumored to be “indefinitely postponed” – an unofficial way of saying a project has been scrapped.
