Disney recently filed permits that will allow changes to the existing parking areas. According to the permit the changes will allow for canal modifications to an existing canal at Epcot which will help with future parking changes.

There are many rumors swirling about with regard to changes coming to Epcot including a possible new entrance plaza, changes to Spaceship Earth, updates to existing rides, and even the addition of a new pavilion.

Another Epcot rumor is that the Universe of Energy might be replaced by a Tron-themed attraction. Or that space might be home to a new Guardians of the Galaxy attraction. We'll have to wait and see.

And finally, two rumored pavilions that might be added to World Showcase are Brazil and Spain. This rumor has been floating around for several months.

What changes would you like to see at Epcot? Let us know in the comments.

I'm really excited about possible changes coming to Epcot, though I really don't want them to take anything out of rotation until Star Wars and Toy Story Lands open up at DHS. I hate it when all of the Parks are under construction. That being said, Epcot has been long due for a bit of freshening up when it comes to Future World.

I read an article that within the last couple of days a permit was filed for a building around the France pavilion in Epcot. Speculation is this may be for a Ratatouille ride like Paris Disneyland.
