Original EPCOT Was Inspiration for New Music Loop at Park

As many of you already know, EPCOT is undergoing a major overhaul, which includes a complete reimagining of Future World, as well as construction on a few different attractions. During the 2019 D23 Expo, Bob Chapek, now the CEO of The Walt Disney Company, and Zach Riddley of Walt Disney Imagineering, announced several big projects coming to EPCOT — Some of which we have already seen and some of which are coming soon.

Along with both of these new elements, the theme park also debuted a new music loop on the same day! The new music loop includes songs such as “The Seasonal Seas” by Steven Price and “Eternal Beauty” by Mark Petrie.

Legislation Could Bring Back Disney Cruises Sooner

Recently, the Canadian government banned cruise vessels carrying 100 people or more from entering Canadian internal waters until February 28, 2022 at the earliest. This, of course, impacted all of the ships in the Disney Cruise Line fleet — the Disney Dream, the Disney Fantasy, the Disney Magic, and the Disney Wonder.

Disney Gives Update The official order from Canadian government authorities read: The Government of Canada continues to monitor the evolving COVID-19 pandemic and the impact it is having on the marine and tourism sectors. Keeping Canadians and transportation workers safe and healthy are top priorities for Transport Canada. Today, the Minister of Transport, the Honourable Omar Alghabra, announced two new Interim Orders, which prohibit pleasure craft in Canadian Arctic waters and cruise vessels in all Canadian waters until February 28, 2022. This means: Adventure-seeking pleasure craft are still prohibited from entering Arctic waters. Passenger vessels carrying more than 12 people are still prohibited from entering Arctic coastal waters, including Nunatsiavut, Nunavik, and the Labrador Coast. Cruise vessels carrying more than 100 people are still prohibited from operating in Canadian waters.

Now, however, there is new legislation that could help save Disney’s 2021
