Gateway Gifts remodel January 2020
Posted: Tuesday January 21, 2020 11:37am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

Gateway Gifts at Epcot reopened Sunday following a brief remodel, and before we take a look inside, the classic sign outside the store remains.

Located under Spaceship Earth, the store is now the park's package pickup point, which relocated from the now closed Gift Stop outside the main entrance.

The remodel includes new registers, new flooring, and new paint color scheme.

During the closure, new concrete was installed outside the store, matching that of the recently reopened eastern main entrance side. The new concrete is a crushed stone type, replacing the former colored concrete.

Looks like the luscious greenery that Epcot so desperately needed.

I wonder what the secret plot they left undone for so long is going to be?

I’m struggling to maintain the self control required to not correct your misspelling of “hear”. Oh wait, I guess I just did

Fare enough, but this was signed by the Disney employees not just the construction workers. It would have been nice as as tribute.

Thank you! Looking very green indeed over by Creations, and it appears what I caught a glimpse of was GlasRoc going up on Communicore. The bypass has also gotten very narrow, it seems. Perhaps it's not a pipe dream to imagine that'll close soon to revert to backstage.

Found another bit of footage from the monorail this evening. Looks like there's even more planted in the gardens than in the video I found originally, so it may indeed be viewable from within the park itself. Other notes: It looks like there might be some sort of cladding or sheetrock going on a northern wall of Communicore Hall. Very hard to tell due to poor video quality. I think they may have added an attendant's podium to the entrance of Journey of Water between the three poles that will eventually support another canopy. Lots of the lighter landscaping fill that typically appears just before trees go in has been deposited in the fenced-off area next to Guest Relations / Connections.
