It seems like the moment one set of construction walls come down, new ones take their place. At the International Gateway in Epcot, we recently noticed a new area had been blocked off from guest access.
This area is on the inside of the park, just beyond the security check and turnstiles. This doesn’t appear to be connected to the Skyliner in any way, mainly due to its location.
Even though this area wraps around and beyond the park entrance, it’s technically inside the perimeter. The only way to access it before was from this side of the turnstiles.
This is the view from just outside the park, near the Friendship Boats dock.
There were workers present, but no obvious demolition or construction had started yet.
They have a dirt mover stationed inside as well.
As of now, we can only speculate what this project is. It could possibly be a widening of the pathway, or eventually an expansion of the turnstiles/security area. After all, they are updating all park entrances for improved security and traffic flow, and this is technically one of them. With the Skyliner opening this Fall, that could come in handy. We’ll keep you updated on this project as it progresses.
