Construction walls pushed back to reveal new metalwork flooring in EPCOT's World Celebration

EPCOT World Celebration Walkway - October 20 2023
Posted: Tuesday October 31, 2023 10:00am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

Construction walls have been moved in EPCOT's World Celebration to reveal a little more of the new World Celebration neighborhood.

The custom metalwork flooring will form a curved pathway from Dreamers Point to the center of World Celebration.

Imagineer Zach Riddley has previously said that the metal panels are made of weathered steel, which will cure to form a rich orange-hued patina.

The World Celebration neighborhood of EPCOT will open in late 2023.

Oh wow… I was just looking at this literally the other day. Brought a friend over to read the words so he could better understand what the real EPCOT Center once stood for. So much more the beer and food festivals back then… -

Indeed! I've happened to obtain the new wording: "To all who come to this place of Synergy, Activations and misplaced IP: Welcome EPCOT is inspired by Walt Disney Studios' creative vision. Here, IP is celebrated through relevancy, timeless activations, and malfunctioning lighting that promises exciting and overcrowded festivals for all. May EPCOT pander, irritate, and above all, instill a new sense of belief and pride in personkind's ability to turbocharge Disney+ subscriptions that offers hope to shareholders everywhere."

Hopefully they make the plaque say EPCOT Center on the first line again (or EPCOT in all caps at the bare minimum). Surprised they never rededicated the park, maybe they realized that would look bad with how little major change actually happened in the grand scheme of things.

Perhaps they're rewriting it to become more timeless, more relevant, and more Disney?

Dedication plaque has been removed, looks like it’s finally getting replaced soon to bring it in line with all the new signage.
