  General Update
The Millennium Celebration has brought many changes to Epcot!

Innoventions has a new exhibit: the Ultimate Home Theater Experience. The exhibit offers the latest in home theater technology, presented by Lutron Electronics. Two sets demonstrate how a family room can be transformed into a retreat and how a living room can integrate the new technology seamlessly. Two 15-seat home theaters show off the technology, complete with a starfield ceiling, plush sofas, and high-tech lighting controls. See their press release for more details.

Journey Into Your Imagination and ImageWorks (in Future World) opened on October 1, 1999 in time for the Millennium Celebration. It is reported that Journey Into Your Imagination closed again to make adjustments to the attraction, and will reopen again in November. Stay tuned for our review of this new attraction.

El Rio del Tiempo (in Mexico) reopened on September 26 after it was closed for a short time for rehab. No major changes.
