Fair enough.

Disney World was closed for just over 100 days. Construction resumed soon after the reopening. Now given the "circumstances" of the pandemic, my point was I understand that due to the closure, naturally everything else would be delayed, however, even with the 100+ day closure, it seems strange that it is still taking them longer than it did for them to build and open the park than it is to finish the construction projects they presently are undertaking. I hope that's clear enough.. And if we're going to blame the pandemic, I'll also point out that Guardians began construction in August of 2017, which if my math is correct was more than 2 years before the closure, and it still isn't close to being done. So..yeah, build and open a park in exactly 3 years in the early 1980s vs not even finishing a rollercoaster in the same amount of time in the 2020s.

I think you're being a bit uncharitable, Wonders. It's a fun observation, that's all.

I have no idea, because it renders the rest of the post useless.

Why do you think I said "I know, (circumstances)... ??

Dang... the huge pandemic of 1980 must not have mattered to the Walt Disney Company back then.

they can bring nightmares to life, and that's exactly what they are doing with the dismantling.

If they can dream it, they can dismantle EPCOT piece by piece.

Oh what they can do when they really want to! :)

You know, it just occurred to me, it took EXACTLY 3 years to build and open the entire EPCOT Center park. We're now approaching the 2 year mark and just the spine is still a pile of dirt. I know, (circumstances).. just find this unsettlingly ironic .

I mean, yeah. Maybe they’ll be doing some paint refreshes, who knows? I’d consider it still a refresh with updates and cleaner signage.

I thought they were just replacing signs
