World Celebration construction at EPCOT

World Celebration Construction - March 19 2021
Posted: Monday March 22, 2021 8:39am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

Work continues at EPCOT on reworking the former Innoventions East and Mouse Gear into the new center of the upcoming World Celebration.


Crews continue with installing new angled glass panels on the exterior of the new merchandise location.

A lot of work is also taking place on the roof, which looks to have new coverings.

The breezeway has seen a lot of work, with new ceilings and glass panels on either side.


The former Electric Umbrella area will become home to new food and beverage location including a Starbucks, quick serve and Coca Cola.


No word yet on when we can expect any of this to open, but we understand there is a priority on reopening the merchandise location as soon as possible.

True. and now they cant see it even if they wanted to thanks to the idiocy of management refusing to show it except for one time at night, terrible.

I've only seen IDF once, back in early 2019. Immediately after I thought "what took you so long?"... The best.

I absolutely LOVE IDF!

Epcot has many issues but IDF is a masterpiece. I view it every trip at least once. I am always amazed at how many people who have gone to WDW many times have not seen it.

I feel there's a sleeveless Martin OnlyFans joke to be made here.

It looks like a surprised frog getting caught doing something they shouldn't have 🤣

Our brutalist City Hall has more whimsy than the theme park.

Oh, I thought we were talking about the quality of the replacement films. Moving on.

No, the fact they’re being renewed is just that. A fact. I didn’t comment about which I thought was better.

Opinion. There hasn't been a replacement that improved on the original. But of course it's subjective.

So much so they’re being renewed? Clearly not.
