WDWNT Reporter Josh Siegel traveled to Epcot to catch a preview of Captain EO yesterday and he has a few photos from his trip to share:
The restrooms in the front of the park are back from refurbishment
A new sign features some design elements we usually don’t see at Epcot, may be seeing signs like this all over the park soon
Cast members working at Captain EO actually got new costumes opposed to Disneyland where they have just new patches
Still has “Honey, I Shrunk the Audience” listed
Work on something outside the theater isn’t finished
A temporary sign featuring the old poster
We showed you this already…
The orginal sign from 1986 is back, there’s no tribute here folks
They really put quite a bit of effort into this
Merchandise cart outside the pavilion
Going from saving the world to walking around it, work continues on Hacienda/Cantina de San Angel at the Mexico pavilion
Work continues on Via Napoli at the Italy pavilion
Still looks pretty bare…
Moving over to the Magic Kingdom…
Things are getting patriotic
Work continues on Exposition Hall
Tarps on the top of the building now
A temporary wheelchair accessible ramp added since the usual ramp is behind tarps
Still behind tarps?
This seems to be taking a while, but the results thus far have been worth it
More of the new railings have been installed at the Tomorowland Terrace
Liberty Tree Tavern begins to emerge from the tarps looking great
Some walls still up
No! It can’t be! Peter Pan’s Flight is out from behind tarps with a new color scheme
It’s really bright and colorful
Some of the facade is still behind tarps though
An incredible view of construction for the Fantasyland Forest, where nothing lies in view straight to Toontown Fair
Some concrete walls are the first pieces of vertical construction
It looks like miles of nothing lie behind that wall from this angle…
Scaffolding now going up around Pooh’s Playful Spot’s tree that moved “across the street”
How much longer?
Probably not much….
Walls are closing in….
Thanks for the report Josh!
