CommuniCore Hall construction - June 16 2022
Posted: Wednesday June 22, 2022 7:27am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

Early work on CommuniCore Hall and CommuniCore Plaza continues at EPCOT and we have a look at the area in this quick update.

Ground work and laying utilities is mostly all we can see so far.

CommuniCore Hall, a multi-use facility, and CommuniCore Plaza, an outdoor event space, will bring the park’s international festivals to the center of EPCOT. CommuniCore Plaza will have the flexibility to host intimate musical performances that extend out into the nearby gardens.

CommuniCore Hall will be a flexible exhibition and gallery space, offering a wide variety of experiences that highlight art, live music, food – complete with a demonstration kitchen – and more.

Disney says that the new CommuniCore Hall is "inspired by the original EPCOT aesthetic apparent throughout the park’s transformation, including the timeless triangular geometry most prominently featured in Spaceship Earth."

3 big sections of the central led ring were out around 6:30pm. Something is certainly not right there.

I know Mobile Ordering has its challenges, but I can’t imagine it’s worse than waiting in a line like this.

The line to get to a cashier in Connections Cafe. Right now.

Y'know, I'm really jealous right now. After lots of waiting, frustrations and disappointments, the positive vibes coming out of this week are very welcome, but I've got 11 months til I can see it all myself. And by then, Test Track will probably be closed...

Only a dozen people in line for picture with Walt. Photopass photographer now on duty.

I’m here in person. Pinar Toprak’s score in World Celebration Gardens is pure magic. It’s amazing here at night.

Something I'm wondering is why wasn't this general location used for the statue of Walt instead of it's current placement? By placing the statue here, wouldn't folks get a better, less obstructed shot of Spaceship Earth in the background? -and minimize the impact of the Project Tomorrow building? I guess I could see it being a "viewing space" issue for shows since the lights are in sync with Spaceship Earth and this area is a sort of gathering spot for folks. But, I still can't imagine it would get much worse than fireworks viewing on Main Street for these short light shows. Heck, Disneyland's Main Street has the Partners statue dropped right in the middle of the madness and manages to operate fine each night.

I miss the way this back area looked before the change. I liked the fountain of nations and surrounding area more before. I do like the front half of Spaceship Earth better today, though. I'm happy the legacy stones are gone.

The 1st Hub show just finished. All lights working.

A lot of memes on FB about that planter comparing it to the stone configuration in Morocco now replaced with a door.

The meet and greets will probably eventually relocate inside of Communicore Hall. I imagine two small merchandise kiosks would make sense in the garden alcoves there since each garden seems like it's supposed to be an extension of the adjacent area. That would give us outdoor dining for Connections, seating and viewing for Communicore, and then perhaps shopping for Creations. I suppose there could be food kiosks too, but there are already 3-4 planned for Communicore Plaza.
