World Celebration food and beverage area construction - October 13 2021
Posted: Wednesday October 13, 2021 1:24pm ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

With Creations Shop and Club Cool now open at EPCOT, construction efforts are focused on completing the new food and beverage areas in World Celebration.

The temporary Mouse Gear location is now being gutted to be combined with the space from the former Innoventions area.

The view from the other side shows work progressing on the exterior of the Innoventions and Electric Umbrella building.

We don't yet have specifics on names for the new food and beverage offerings or where they will be located within the building.

New additions will include a quick-service restaurant to replace Electric Umbrella, a new Starbucks, and some other specialty offerings.

Not even a slight hint of what used to be there. Very depressing.

Did they make that roof on Communicore Hall strong enough to hold a roof garden?

Spaceship Earth's beacon was noted to be a permanent change unlike the other beacons.

This may not be the right topic but has there been any indication if SSE's Beacons of light will be more or less "permanent" once the 50th is over? We really love the look this gives SSE and the nightly shows are incredible. Thank you.

I think it’s an acknowledgement nothing is in the hopper for delivery in 2024 so they’ve slid this back in the queue

Dreamers point still shows up as a search result, it only goes 404 when you click on it. Could just be a server issue or something with the backend.

Journey of Water also 404s. What's odd is this is linked from the root EPCOT page Curiouser and curiouser

IIRC the Late 2023 for Dreamers Point was added at the same time it was added to the page for Journey of Water, which also has a Stitch Ate the Page error today.

Yeah, I looked at it when you posted it, and it definitely had it. I tried to Wayback Machine it yesteday too, and the page was unarchived, so maybe it was relatively new to begin with?

Uh oh. Yesterday it said opening late 2023, I didn’t get a screenshot though.

Odd. That's a 404 now.
