The D23 Expo is about to begin and we just got a major preview of something coming soon to Disney World!

When you’re not busy checking out everything D23 has to offer, from the exclusive merchandise to the panels to exhibits like Walt Disney’s historic plane, there’s something you definitely want to see before it makes its way all the way to EPCOT!

D23 Expo ticket holders will be able to get an exclusive look at the Walt Disney statue coming soon to EPCOT! In case you missed it, this special Walt Disney statue is coming soon to EPCOT as part of the park’s big transformation.

The statue, known as the “Walt the Dreamer” statue, will be installed at Dreamer’s Point in EPCOT. And we got to see the actually statue that is coming to EPCOT!!!! Here’s what it looks like!

Dreamer’s Point will be located near the exit of Spaceship Earth, and the statue is a celebration of Walt’s dedication to the future.

Disney shared a behind-the-scenes video of the making of this statue back in 2021, and now we can finally see it finished!

The details are incredible, and we can’t wait to see it in EPCOT.

On rare occasions, when we are invited by a company to attend a preview as media, and when we choose to accept that invitation, we will always make you, our readers, aware of that situation. Today, we were invited by Disney World to attend their media preview of D23 Expo.
