Test Track’s New Look Will Be Unveiled at Epcot This Week

Now that all you Epcot fans have had a few weeks to recover from celebrating Epcot history at the park’s 30th anniversary festivities, let’s take a look forward at what’s next for the park. We have an update to share on Test Track – Presented by Chevrolet, which will celebrate a milestone in its construction this week as it unveils its new exterior to guests.

As you can see from this image, the attraction’s color scheme has been changed from a yellow-and-black checkerboard pattern to a sleek, bold blue design that incorporates smaller icon designs that guests will encounter within the attraction. (And I think I spy at least one nod to Epcot history here. Anyone else?). The attraction’s new marquee, which Walt Disney Imagineer Melissa Jeselnick unveiled also reflects a sleek automotive-inspired design.

As a reminder, the reimaged Test Track will officially open this Dec. 6. For more on the attraction’s new storyline, technology and more, don’t miss these previous blog posts:

 

All in the Details: The Theming of Under the Sea ~ Journey of The Little Mermaid at Magic Kingdom Park

Last week we gave you a look inside the Under the Sea ~ Journey of The Little Mermaid attraction, which opens December 6 in New Fantasyland at Magic Kingdom Park. Many of you have asked exactly how this attraction is different from The Little Mermaid ~ Ariel’s Undersea Adventure attraction at Disney California Adventure park. Well, feast your eyes on the photos below to get the answer – it’s the attraction’s amazingly detailed exterior.

Provided by Walt Disney Imagineering, these photos show exactly how guests will become immersed in the tale of “The Little Mermaid” the instant they arrive at the attraction. Its marquee was just installed and features Ariel on the bow of a shipwrecked boat. From here, guests walk through a detailed queue that takes them over a shoreline that has scattered pieces of the ship and into the rocky cliffs below Prince Eric’s castle, with the sound of rushing water all around.
