United Kingdom restrooms refurbishment completed
Posted: Tuesday February 20, 2024 11:03am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

The restrooms in the United Kingdom pavilion have reopened after a lengthy refurbishment that began last summer.

The restrooms have been completely updated with new flooring, tile, and fixtures. The exterior signage has also been updated.

With the reopening of the bathrooms at the United Kingdom pavilion, the nearby World Showplace restrooms have now closed.

EPCOT has been undertaking a multi-year plan to refresh the park's restrooms, some of which date back to the 80's and 90's. The United Kingdom was one of the last remaining to be updated.

They really should have “Toilets” rather than “Restrooms” on the main sign if they want to be authentically British.

Work underway on aging the tea shop

It's quite clearly not a homage to the vast majority of British public toilets. Which isn't necessarily a bad thing!

Nice! The restroom tile is undoubtedly a reference to the tube station. As an aside, THIS is exactly what theming and decoration at EPCOT should look like: homages to real world locations, history, and culture, perhaps with a touch of whimsy. It should rarely be characters, IP, or other self-references to “Disney.”

Did someone mention Japan Pavilion there is only one answer for a Dark Ride, ya know the guy who Kicked Disneys Butt at the Box Office :p

The tiling reminds me of Russell Square ’tube’ station. It’s a shame the toilets aren’t underground in old school London fashion Fun fact - the original Victorian london tube had different tile patterns at each station because most passengers couldn’t read

Marrakesh are def old school Epcot, but doesn't matter since no restaurant. Was always fun to check out though to step back into the 80s. Same for Le Cellier, not sure the status of those. Remember the dingy little ones in the back of Japan behind the gardens? now that one was creepy.

Nice touch of "WC" for "Water Closet".

I think Germany’s are still old school. At least they seemed to be when I used them last weekend.

Restrooms just re-opened and are much improved. Refresh my memory ... Which World Showcase restrooms remain in dire straits? Have the Japan and China bathrooms gotten any TLC yet? With the recent changes to UK and Morocco, they're the ones that still stick out in my mind.

And is still underway. Only half of the wood trim has been repainted, and the stucco sections will probably be finished after that.
