Most of the construction walls were removed earlier this week in World Celebration around Guest Relations and Spaceship Earth at EPCOT.

Behind the walls are landscaped areas with shrubs and palm trees.

World Celebration is expected to be completed by the end of 2023, along with the opening of Journey of Water Inspired by Moana in World Nature.

The “flower towers” have left their mark on the world (celebration)…

It is Operating in a such a degraded state that it should just be shut off. Embarrassingly bad show.

The rolling hedges are gone from where the dedication plaque used to be, but still no new plaque as of now. Also, the Wish topiary for F&G is gone from the entrance already.

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

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!
