The Odyssey building has been experiencing updates since early last year, but they have all been more interior updates. When it reopened on New Year’s Eve in 2018, we saw a clean and crisp modern look, but it had ultimately lost the touch of eighties nostalgia. As of today, it seems like the exterior of the building will now be receiving an update to keep with the gray scale color scheme that’s on the inside.

As the dark storm clouds rolled into the World Showcase, it matched what is now the new exterior of The Odyssey building. The gray and white paint are almost making it blend into the background of the sky as one passes by.

The Odyssey once featured overall earthy tones, being painted in browns, beige, and tan colors. The white and gray do add to the crisp and modern look that The Odyssey center needed as part of this update.

The concrete planters are a part of the update as well, being painted to a new gray color.

These planters wrap around to the entrances to the building, which is currently roped off at the moment as no festivities or events are occurring.

These planters were brown to help tie in with the rest of the brown tones around the building. You can still see some of the remaining brown streaks here, but now it looks a little out of place with the rest of the neutral tones around it.

The main walls of the building are being coated with primer. The siding used to be beige as well, and although we’re uncertain what the new color will be, we can hazard a guess and say that it’ll be either painted white or gray to help tie in with the rest of the updated paint job.

Here’s a better close up look at the siding. Some of the old beige coloring is still bleeding through from the grains in the pattern.

It looks like everything has only had one coat of paint on it so far, as the brown and beige colors keep bleeding through from under the new gray paint.

There were also workers on the roof of the building. Either to continue painting or to do some construction to the roof, we’re not entirely sure.

Here’s what it used to look like before, for reference. The brown planters, beige sidings, and light blue paint at the top have all gone away for this new look.

We’re sure this is all in part of transforming The Odyssey for the new “Experience Center”, which will also feature the return of the classic ImageWorks Rainbow Tunnel.

As Epcot keeps going through more changes, such as the Rose Walk Pathway, Wonders of Life Pavilion and the Guardians of the Galaxy Roller Coaster to name a few, WDWNT will keep you updated on all the latest construction occurring around the park.
