Big changes are underway at the entrance of Epcot. Some of the plans have been announced, while others are still quite vague. Every park is getting adjustments to improve the guest experience as they enter, and Epcot’s not exception. Let’s see how this project is coming since our last update.
They’ve made a pretty big mess of the old tram loop.
Guests used to load and unload from the parking lot trams at this location. What their plans are for the area are unclear as of now, but I’d assume changes are going to be made.
The rain over the last few nights hasn’t made their job any easier. There are lots of pipes staged here for installation. Too bad they can’t help drain the puddles.
This is near the path that the trams would take towards the parking lot. They’ve got a trough ready for something.
Not a lot of change on the other side of the monorail station (other than the small lake).
They’re using the space closest to the bus loop to stage equipment and materials for the project. There’s a lot of concrete to be buried, it looks like.
If anyone has any insight on the specifics of any of these materials, feel free to let me know. Alas, I am no contractor.
Hopefully whatever they’re doing, it simplifies entry to the park. Epcot’s entrance feels like a maze of security checkpoints and one-way gates currently, and honestly, anything would be better at this point.
Are you looking forward to the new entrance experience? We’ll keep you updated on this and all current construction projects at Epcot.
