EPCOT World celebration directional signage
Posted: Tuesday November 21, 2023 11:34am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

A new directional sign has popped up recently in EPCOT's World Celebration, which includes two soon-to-open new venues.

The new sign follows the updated EPCOT style, colored light blue, and can be found on the main walkway between Guest Relations and Connections Cafe.

In addition to directing guests to Connections Cafe, Creations Shop, World Nature, World Discovery, and World Showcase, the signage includes blacked-out entries for CommuniCore Hall and Mickey & Friends meet-and-greet.


Journey of Water- Inspired by Moana, is also included on the sign and blacked out. Although the attraction is open, there is no direct route from the signage to Journey of Water; this will change when World Celebration is fully available to guests later this year.

CommuniCore Hall will provide space for additional festival offerings that won't depend on Florida weather, which is also subdividable into two distinct sections.



CommuniCore Hall will also be home to an indoor Mickey and Friends character meet and greet.

The surrounding CommuniCore Plaza will feature a garden with space to view entertainment from a covered performance stage and seating for nearby festival food and drink kiosks.

World Celebration will open to guests in late 2023, but it remains unclear if CommuniCore Hall will be ready at the same time.

How did we go from this... To this? I get that it's flex space and all, but couldn't we at least have had some character to the space (that is easily movable/removable) for when the space is not otherwise in active use?

I wouldn’t call it a lie. Inconsistent performance from that light system has been pretty thoroughly documented, and when it’s as bad as it’s been, the pictures have been pretty definitive. If anything, they’re an IP tie-in to show up as reliably as the Flying Dutchman.

You know how everyone on here’s favorite thing to complain about is the lights in World Celebration being broken? Well that was a complete lie. Photo taken tonight

‘Pluto’s Cornhole’ sounds like the name of some new festival snack food offering. Or a very non-family friendly film on vhs tape. 🥴 -

I feel like I should be studying for my exam for next period on the thesis of how one little spark becomes inspiration and then finding the balance of good food that sings for nutrition...

Fun fact: if you walk close to the walls you can hear the music better that syncs to the Gershwin Neon Tunnel as it plays "Rhapsody in Blue" United Airlines jingle they use..

Look at the bright side: if there is a medical emergency, this can transform into a surgical suite in 4 minutes.

It’s pretty hard to fake excitement if there’s nothing there.

Ol' CVG has the long tunnel to walk but the concourses have really nice restrooms. So, that's a win. I'm trying to envision this space with various either festival-related items or little parties and I just don't see it. Honestly, the convention centers at the Contemporary have about as much personality.

This was always a great way to start our Disney trips, by gliding down this awesome hallway!

When an airport concourse looks more Epcot than Epcot! (Chicago O’Hare)
