PHOTOS: New Pathway Carved Out as Rose Walk Construction Continues at Epcot

Workers are pushing ahead full-steam at Epcot to get the Rose Walk pathway between Future World and World Showcase back up and running in time for the 2019 International Food and Wine Festival next month. Just a week ago, we noticed that they had finally started pouring concrete for the newly-expanded pathway. Well, it looks like a few other changes are underway for the paths in the area.

When the walls were recently expanded back to the main path, we weren’t quite sure what they had in store for the area.

You can see they’ve started installing the Food and Wine booths that inhabit this space every year. The pathways around it will probably be a bit different this year, though.

They have dug up the original path, and it looks like the new path will take a slightly different course.

As you can see, the outline for the new concrete puts the pathway much lower than the original, almost at the level of the water in the pond. I’m curious if this is a secondary path and the original path will be re-built, or if the only path will be this new, lower one.

More concrete has been laid for the newly-widened path further down.

They still have a ways to go.

It looks like they’re installing a foundation for something, as well. Only time will tell what will go here, but I bet it’s related to the various Epcot festivals.

It looks like it’s all starting to come together. I’m very excited to walk down this path without constantly being run over by strollers.

We expect the path to be open in time for the 2019 International Food and Wine Festival, although Disney has given no official timeline for this project. We’ll keep you updated as the project continues!
