Fresh on the heels of yesterday’s article about on a new Magic Kingdom area hotel, today a slew of permit filings are pointing toward the imminent beginning of work for the rumored hotel to be located at the entrance of Epcot, which we first told you about last November. Back then, we showed two possible sites being evaluated for the new hotel.
A total of 27 separate notices were published today, all referring to the same project code “JPEC8060” and all with addresses on Avenue of the Stars, which is the backstage perimeter road that encircles Epcot. With that many publications, this project is certainly a large one and the new Epcot hotel fits that description.
While we’re still not sure exactly where the hotel will sit, much of the area behind the Seas between the monorail station and the Land pavilion will be used for the hotel and supporting infrastructure.
