“As guests pass Spaceship Earth, in the future they will discover a breathtaking new view of World Showcase from Dreamers Point,” Disney described in a news release. “World Celebration will also feature a new statue honoring the legacy of the original dreamer, Walt Disney, plus beautiful natural environments and global design elements filled with Disney magic.”

In a video posted on Disney Park’s Twitter, a sculptor can be seen detailing the sculpture in a model form.

The statue is just a piece of the historic transformation happening now at EPCOT.

In addition to Dreamers Point, World Celebration will be home to the all-new Creations Shop, Club Cool Hosted by Coca-Cola and recently announced Connections Café and Eatery, which is taking over the former Electric Umbrella quick-service restaurant.
