Instead of putting together an original score for the entrance music, Disney selected an arrangement of pre-existing songs that carried a generic, triumphant, uplifting theme, but failed to reach the iconic arrangement of years past in many guests opinion.

EPCOT has a unique musical voice – a legacy and future with a sound all its own. As we shared with D23 in 2019, our team has been working on new music and a parkwide soundscape informing new shows, attractions and environments we are bringing to life in this transformation to live alongside the classic songs and themes EPCOT is known for.
