4. Epcot Forever (Late 2019)

In case you haven't heard, IllumiNations is ending next year, and Disney announced recently that as soon as this show finishes up its run, Disney will debut a limited-time nighttime spectacular, called “Epcot Forever,” which will feature classic Epcot themes. This new show is meant to showcase the best of Epcot while celebrating its unique history, all with classic music and advanced pyrotechnics. 

5. A Celebration of Disney Music (2020)

Though Epcot Forever will run in 2019, in 2020, a new permanent nighttime spectacular will debut. Called “A Celebration of Disney Music,” this new nighttime entertainment offering will show how Disney music inspires people around the globe, and will feature large floating set pieces, custom-built LED panels, kites with special effects, choreographed moving fountains, lights, pyrotechnics, and lasers. Confirmed Disney IPs that will be featured in this new production include Coco, Hercules, and Moana. Moving forward, this will be the permanent replacement for IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth, and the infrastructure for this show is under construction as we speak. 

6. Remy's Ratatouille Adventure (2020)

Remy's Ratatouille Adventure, the new name for the Ratatouille: L'Aventure Totalement Toquée de Rémy ride which is being cloned for Epcot is now under construction and is set to open sometime in 2020. This Ratatouille-themed 3-D dark ride will use trackless technology to "shrink" guests down to the size of a rat, and is being constructed in an expansion pad behind the France pavilion. 

7. Unnamed Guardians of the Galaxy Ride (TBA 2021)

It has been over a year since Disney confirmed during the 2017 D23 Expo in Anaheim that a Guardians of the Galaxy-inspired attraction would be added to Epcot's Future World, and in this time we've only gotten a few little updates here and there about what we can expect from this somehow still-unnamed attraction. However, one thing we do know is this attraction is going to be massive, with the building that will house this ride capable of holding FOUR Spaceship Earth attractions inside it, a truly staggering statistic.  

Disney has developed a new ride system for this attraction that will feature elevated roller coaster trains that conceal track underneath, and can also move independently, spinning around to face screens or setpieces, similar to the roller coaster trains used by Universal's Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts attraction. You can see the prototype for the new ride vehicles above.
