CommuniCore Hall construction - February 21 2023

In this latest look at the construction site in the center of EPCOT, we can see new vertical structures expanding beyond the Communicore Hall building.

There are several white steel poles with horizontal beams at the top. Beneath, there are numerous concrete forms, including a completed circular structure.

At Communicore Hall, the exterior walls are being framed in, with work continuing throughout the area.

This building will eventually be home to elements of EPCOT's festivals, including performance areas, opening late 2023.

Yeah, I think someone may have forgotten that is the complaint for the MK threads. The complaint for this thread is that there are too many trees and benches.

Photos from today. It appears the dying palm tree near the Mickey & Friends entrance was replaced and lighting tests were happening at the CommuniCore Plaza stage. [URL=''][IMG][/IMG]

I mean, it would be a welcome seating area considering everyone complains about eating on trash cans during festivals. That area is typically jammed up with booths. In Festival of the Arts alone, the area just north houses Deco Delights, Pop Eats, Deconstructed Dish, and whatever resides in Refreshment Port, plus they just added a new kiosk next door and potentially three more in CommuniCore.

foreal, theres way more trees now than ever, i am curious as to what the shade structure is for, more food? or just a giant seating area? Meet n Greets?

What? There's so many more trees now than before. You remember the giant concrete abyss with the triangles above it? That's trees now. You remember Innoventions? That's Journey Of Water (with tons of trees) now

Shad structure-----used to call them trees with benches until Disney ripped them all out

With the removal of Leave a Legacy it made sense to add a new war memorial I guess

I see they are going back to the rusty/ grunge aesthetic of 1998 Tomorrowland. I wonder if they will also plant some lettuce or maybe some orange trees so it can be a callback to Horizons!
