CommuniCore Hall construction - May 2 2024

With less than a month to go until the June 10 opening of EPCOT's CommuniCore Hall and Plaza, crews are wrapping up the final details.


Although the area is still behind walls, we can get a good look at the area from the monorail beam passing through World Celebration.




Opening alongside CommiuniCore Plaza from June 10-Sept. 6 will be a new sing-along featuring the beloved songs and story of "Encanto.". This new limited-time show, "¡Celebración Encanto!" runs several times throughout the day and will not only invite you and your family to sing along with some of your favorite songs, but you'll also spot Mirabel and Bruno on the newly opened CommuniCore Plaza stage. 

CommuniCore Hall will be home to the iconic EPCOT festivals and other celebrations Disney says it will also be a perfect cool indoor space year-round for you and your family to recharge.


CommuniCore Hall will also be home to an indoor Mickey and Friends character meet and greet.

The surrounding CommuniCore Plaza will feature a garden with space to view entertainment from a covered performance stage and seating for nearby festival food and drink kiosks.

You know how everyone on here’s favorite thing to complain about is the lights in World Celebration being broken? Well that was a complete lie. Photo taken tonight

‘Pluto’s Cornhole’ sounds like the name of some new festival snack food offering. Or a very non-family friendly film on vhs tape. 🥴 -

I feel like I should be studying for my exam for next period on the thesis of how one little spark becomes inspiration and then finding the balance of good food that sings for nutrition...

Fun fact: if you walk close to the walls you can hear the music better that syncs to the Gershwin Neon Tunnel as it plays "Rhapsody in Blue" United Airlines jingle they use..

Look at the bright side: if there is a medical emergency, this can transform into a surgical suite in 4 minutes.

It’s pretty hard to fake excitement if there’s nothing there.

Ol' CVG has the long tunnel to walk but the concourses have really nice restrooms. So, that's a win. I'm trying to envision this space with various either festival-related items or little parties and I just don't see it. Honestly, the convention centers at the Contemporary have about as much personality.

This was always a great way to start our Disney trips, by gliding down this awesome hallway!

When an airport concourse looks more Epcot than Epcot! (Chicago O’Hare)

All you have to do is buy G+ and you can wait in cool A/C. All the cheapskates and tourist scum can sweat outside in the Florida blast furnace.
