Construction walls from World Celebration to World Showcase - January 31 2024
Posted: Wednesday January 31, 2024 12:34pm ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

A new set of construction walls has popped up in EPCOT over the last week, blocking most of the walkway between World Celebration and World Showcase.

 

The new walls extend outwards from the still-under-construction CommuniCore Plaza and are met with new walls coming from the side of the walkway from the direction of World Discovery.

Behind the walls, crews are working on replacing the concrete, which is still the old EPCOT pink color.

There will likely be more disruption in the coming months, as work will have to move further along the walkway to replace the concrete throughout the area.

At peak periods, the construction walls are creating a significant bottleneck to the new World Celebration Gardens, and the best option may be to use the Rose Walk pathway into World Nature or use the walkway alongside The Odyssey and through World Discovery.

The funniest part of these signs is the fact that their illumination is controlled by a small silver switch on the concrete base. I love just sitting and watching people turn them on or off as they pass.

Most of the tall signs around world celebration are already having lighting issues, some of them are only partially lighting up while others aren’t illuminating at all at night

Some are speculating now that Epcot will be Festival-less this summer.

Is there still the rumor out there of curiosity as to why this year the Flower and Garden festival will end sooner than last year and the year before.. some peeps are speculating a new festival.?

Not a surprise considering Epcot is just a year round festival cash cow but something new would have been nice

Looks like half of the area by the rose walk will soon reopen with a new booth. https://blogmickey.com/2024/02/construction-next-to-imagination-pavilion-is-for-more-epcot-festival-kiosks/
