With big plans for the upcoming Play Pavilion announced, Disney has officially closed off the former Wonders of Life complex and begun prepping for its massive overhaul. Newer guests may recognize the former Wonders of Life complex as the Festival Center. It was last used during the 2018 Food & Wine Festival, but has been closed ever since.
Until recently, the building had simply been closed and roped off, but today we found that fences and scrim were up around the building, with audible jack hammering, while out of sight, clearly happening behind walls.
Since being roped off, the area has been restricted to construction crews only, with not even Cast Members allowed to cut through the backstage area here. With most of the construction taking place held within the building, it won’t be easy to track the progress on this project, but we’ll do our best.
Stay tuned to WDWNT as we bring you daily construction updates for all the major projects going on throughout Epcot and across Disney Parks.
