Once onboard, guests will interact with characters and become active participants in stories that unfold around them on their galactic journey.

And then my heart stopped as we were shown a model of the multi-year transformation of Epcot complete with new experiences, “that will make the park more Disney, more family, more timeless, and more relevant” was unveiled.
