EPCOT Transformation, DIsney

We have been closely following the construction progress of the World Celebration EPCOT Transformation which includes the CommuniCore Hall and Plaza.

It's now time for another update and from a new photo update posted to Twitter by Bioreconstruct we can see that further trees have been added and work is continuing on the walkways. Here is an aerial overview to begin with.

This image below shows an aerial overview of CommuniCore Plaza and Hall where you can see work is progressing on the EPCOT 5-ring logo.

Here is a close up view of the 5-ring EPCOT logo in World Celebration.

Work is continuing on the walkway between CommuniCore Hall and Journey of Water where a frame has been cast into the pavement. More of these frames are expected to be added.

More trees are being planted in CommuniCore Plaza. A number of these near the walkway will be taller in order to obscure the view to discourage other guests stopping during performances.

As you can see in the new video update posted to YouTube by Park Update and embedded below, work appears to be pushing forward in the central section. This new area is slated to open by the end of this year and with only three months to go there does seem to be a lot of work still to complete. We will continue to keep you posted on construction progress and further announcements regarding the confirmed opening date for CommuniCore Hall and Plaza at EPCOT.

Back in August, reporter Scott Gustin posted a photo of the new mural artwork which will be added to the exterior of the CommuniCore Hall at EPCOT. As you can see, the mural contains images of Mickey, Minnie, Donald Duck and Figment and appears to have a retro feel. It certainly looks bright and fun, let us know your thoughts by leaving us a comment below or on our Facebook page.

Work appears to be progressing well on this new area of EPCOT and according to recently posted photos by Bioreconstruct developments are being made on CommuniCore Hall and Plaza. Most of the lattice has been added to the CommuniCore Hall exterior, large white triangles are expected to be secured to these.

Work is also taking place on the walkways along CommuniCore Hall as can be seen in the post below with many now complete. You can also see how the area will have a lot of trees and greenery.

This last photo shows a look from the monorail across World Celebration, when this is completed it is sure to be a fantastic new area of EPCOT. This EPCOT transformation is slated to open later this year, we hope this is a deadline that Disney can make as it certainly looks like they still have quite a long way to go before it is complete. We will update you on the official opening date as soon as it is announced.
