PHOTOS: Construction Begins on Epcot Gondola Station at International Gateway
Walt Disney World’s worst kept secret at this point is the gondola transportation system that will link Epcot, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort, Art of Animation Resort, and Pop Century Resort. With that being said, construction walls are now up at International Gateway, the World Showcase entrance to Epcot, for what we believe to be the gondola station for that park.
The work site is quite large, visible from the bridge connecting the Beach Club and Boardwalk.
What was a tram stop many years ago will now likely be the gondola station for guests at Epcot, just steps away from the entrance and boat dock.
No work has begun yet, but materials are arriving.
It should be interesting to see how this changes the often quiet second entrance to Epcot.
The Walt Disney World gondola system is expected to be announced at the D23 Expo 2017 in just a few weeks.
