PHOTOS - Construction walls throughout Epcot's Future World

Epcot Future World Construction Walls - September 2019

Epcot's Future World is full of construction walls as early work begins to transform the land into the new "Worlds."

At the main entrance, the majority of the area is walled off for removal of Leave a Legacy and to begin work on the new main entrance plaza.

Walls line the edge of the park between Gateway Gifts and Guest Relations.

More walls can be found on the eastern side next to Mouse Gear.

The playground remains open, but is surrounded by walls.

The Future World West bathroom area near to Test Track is also behind walls.

According to Disney, when complete "Epcot will be unified with four neighborhoods that each speak to important aspects of the world and its people: World Showcase, World Celebration, World Nature and World Discovery. These neighborhoods will be filled with new experiences rooted in authenticity and innovation that take you to new destinations, where the real is made fantastic in a celebration of curiosity, hands-on wonder and the magic of possibility."

Does the tunnel that runs below those buildings play any role in them deciding what they can put where? I wondered if that's why they placed the festival center towards the end where Club Cool was, so it can connect to the tunnel and supplies can be brought from the entryway by UoE for events.

All signs point to Journey of Water still staying with either slight or major reimaginings depending on what happens with the reimagined festival center.

Those can be done at reasonable expense I would say. What about the Moana thing?

FoN is completely gone. The minor projects of the hub: fountain, Dreamer's Point, Wishing Tree, party/entertainment space have gone unmentioned by Disney and by our insiders. Most likely the status of these minor projects will depend on what WDW finally decides the reimagined festival center will be.

They already started demolition though, correct? I seem to remember shedding a few tears over it’s demise.

no replacement rumored unfortunately, they will run into the ground as long as they can.

I’m asking more in hope than expectation, but is there any news on the FoN replacement? What’s the current thinking about this?

One year to finish up three in progress projects? Seems like more than enough time. Now if you were talking about the entire refurbished East building by the 50th, that might be a little less plausible but I'm sure they could still pull it off.

They got 12 months.

One would imagine that can be done. 🤷‍♂️

I’ve actually heard that Disney wants Mousegear, New Club Cool, and Electric Umbrella open by the start of the 50th. I’m not sure how recent that prospect is, but I don’t think it’s unreasonable.
