Elsewhere, Disney’s DuckTales World Showcase Adventure is the next iteration of a popular interactive scavenger hunt around Epcot’s World Showcase.

Using the Play Disney Parks app, visitors will join Scrooge McDuck, Donald, Huey, Dewey and Louie, Launchpad and Webby in search of priceless treasure.

In addition, three new films will debut on January 17, 2020 at Epcot, the same day the Epcot International Festival of the Arts begins.

‘Awesome Planet’ is a 10-minute film in The Land pavilion, featuring spectacular images, in-theater effects and an original musical score from composer Steven Price.

‘Beauty and the Beast Sing-Along’ in the France pavilion is directed and produced by Don Hahn, who produced the animated and live-action ‘Beauty and the Beast’ films.

‘Canada Far and Wide in Circle-Vision 360’ in the Canada pavilion is an update to the ‘O Canada!’ film, with new scenes and a new musical score by composer Andrew Lockington.

As for Epcot’s upcoming restaurants, Disney has unveiled more details and concept images of Space 220 and Regal Eagle Smokehouse: Craft Drafts & Barbecue.

Regal Eagle Smokehouse: Craft Drafts & Barbecue, opening soon at The American Adventure in Epcot, will be a fast-casual restaurant serving BBQ and brews.

Space 220 is a new table-service restaurant, also debuting soon at Epcot, located next to Mission: SPACE. Guests will feel like they’re dining 220 miles above the Earth’s surface.

As they enter the space elevator at Space 220 for liftoff, visitors will ‘travel into space’ and dock next to the suspended Centauri Space Station.

When they arrive at the restaurant, guests will be taken to their seats via the grow zone – a spinning wall of produce that mimics Earth’s gravity and shows some of the ingredients used at Space 220.

Walt Disney Imagineering previously said that Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser will debut in 2021 at Walt Disney World Resort.

Disney also unveiled more about the projects heading to Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World in 2020, including the opening date of Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway.
