If you’ve seen the complete maze of construction walls in EPCOT then you’re probably well aware of the MASSIVE transformation EPCOT is undergoing right now, with part of the park being transformed into new neighborhoods, a couple of brand-new rides, a space-themed restaurant, and more!
Since the EPCOT Monorail is running once again, we jumped on it to get a view from the sky of what’s going on behind these walls!
From the Monorail, we could see the construction going on for some of the areas that will become part of World Discovery and World Celebration when EPCOT’s transformation is complete.
In the World Discovery section, we saw that the Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind building is coming along, with more silver panels on the roof!
This area is really close to what will become the PLAY! pavilion, as we saw on the newest EPCOT map! The PLAY! pavilion will be located in the orange-y dome building behind the trees (what used to be the Wonders of Life pavilion).
There’s a lot of greenery around here right now, which we saw reflected on EPCOT’s current map.
We also peeked at the area just behind Spaceship Earth, which will be part of World Celebration.
There’s also some greenery in the space behind the construction walls in this area, as well as a LOT of other things like tents, trailers, and other construction gear!
In this space, we’re eventually set to see gardens, a fountain, and a new statue of Walt Disney.
For right now, though, there’s just a bunch of construction vehicles and a whole lot of dirt! You can also see some of the Creations Shop in the one area here. That’s the new store that will replace Mouse Gear. It is set to open this summer, so we’ll be on the lookout for more updates on that!
We’ll be keeping an eye on the construction in EPCOT, so keep following DFB for more updates!
