A Look At Current EPCOT Construction From the Newly Reopened EPCOT Monorail Line

0

If you’ve ever ridden the Monorail past the Magic Kingdom or through EPCOT, while construction is going on, you know what a great vantage point it gives you.  From the Monorail you can see all kinds of work being done that you can’t usually see on the ground.

Yesterday the EPCOT Monorail line reopened and we are now able to get a great view of the work being done on various projects around the park.

Before the pandemic hit EPCOT’s front entrance and “spine” area were torn out and construction walls went up all around the area.  We had looks at upcoming projects. Some are still coming to fruition like the Moana Journey of Water area or Guardians of the Galaxy Cosmic Rewind and some have been cancelled or paused like the Festival Center and the Spaceship Earth redo.

Today I’m going to share with you some images that were taken of areas that are progressing at EPCOT.

Moana Journey of Water

The water feature interactive area is still moving forward. I’m sure during the pandemic it would have been one of the first places closed down due to the shared water play, but now it’s moving forward.

 

The New Fountain

Disney had torn down the Fountain of Nations and now they are rebuilding the fountain.

 

EPCOT Gift Shop  (Creations Shop) Redo.  Club Cool will also be in the same area.

I can’t wait for these areas to reopen!  They’re supposed to open this summer!

 

Former Innoventions Construction Areas:

World Celebration area:

Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind is also coming along!

 

I look forward to having this all finished.  The giant hole in the middle of the park just isn’t the same. They did a great job with the entry way and new fountain.

What do you think? Comment and let us know!
