The Epcot Transformation is one of the BIGGEST park makeovers we’ve ever seen — and it’s just getting started!
While we’ve been keeping you in the loop with all the new restaurants and attractions as their construction sites progress, now it seems Epcot’s evolution is REALLY kicking into high gear! And even if you normally consider yourself to be a pro at navigating Epcot, it can be really tricky given how unfamiliar it’s lookin’ and feelin’ these days!
Never needed a map to get around Epcot before? You might want to grab one THIS time to help you traverse the endless sea of construction walls we’re about to show you! It shows the new pathways and can help guide you to your destination!
And while the World Showcase isn’t greatly impacted at the moment (other than the France pavilion’s construction as Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure takes shape for its summer 2020 opening), Future World and Epcot’s main entrance are virtually unrecognizable in their current state.
As you can see, now that the Leave A Legacy monoliths have been removed and a significant portion of the turnstiles are now blocked off, you have to go to the extreme left turnstiles of the front gate to enter.
Future World East
To access Mission: SPACE, (and subsequently the new Space 220 Restaraunt when it opens!), Test Track, the temporary Mouse Gear location, playground area, The Epcot Experience and onward to the World Showcase, you’ll want to head left. The signage is color-coded, and you’ll be directed towards Future World East’s attractions with reds, pinks, and purples.
The Epcot Experience is where you’ll get to see Epcot’s big plans for the future along with Eats at Epcot Experience — a new quick-service restaurant!
Keep in mind you’ll still be able to access the World Showcase from both Future World West and Future World East for the time being! And ALL of the attractions are still open, they’re just a little more difficult to access.
The walkway to Epcot’s Future World East runs alongside Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind which is taking over the Universe of Energy’s former show building which you’ll see on the left.
We’re so pumped to ride Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind when it opens 2021, but for now, we’ll just have to wait and watch as its construction progresses!
It’s also important to note the restrooms near Guest Relations as you head to the Guardians of the Galaxy path are now closed due to construction.
From Mouse Gear to the playground, you’ll walk through this LOOOOOONG, seemingly-endless corridor of construction walls! This path leads you to Future World West!
Future World West
If you hang a right at Spaceship Earth, you’ll end up over by The Seas pavilion. This is how to get you’ll get over to The Land and Imagination pavilions as well, before continuing on towards the World Showcase. All of the Future World West signage and walls are designated with blues and greens.
