PHOTOS: Construction Update on Continuing Entrance Enhancements and More at EPCOT (11/15/19)
As construction work continues on the reimagined EPCOT entrance, a quick trip on the Highway in the Sky shows some notable updates to the work around Future World and the park.
As we approach the park, we can still seem some booms in the water and the large dirt pile for construction work off to the west of the park entrance. We can also spot some more equipment storage as well on the outskirts of the bus loop.
As we approach the tram loop, you can see work on the sidewalk on the east side of the tram roadway has continued to progress. On the other side of the construction walls on the far side of the parking lot guest walkway, we can see large drainage pipes being stored until they’re ready for use somewhere in the park.
Work continues to progress on the landscaping and new concrete walkways just past the new tram loop.
As we pass over the entrance to the park, we can see work continues on the new planters for the remodeled entrance to the park. The new fountain also is seeing progress. Workers were on site looking over plans for the fountain.
Land clearing on the east side of Spaceship Earth continues. New pipeline trenches have been dug and workers were moving dirt with some of the equipment inside the walls.
Work continues behind Mouse Gear at the site of the former butterfly garden and kids playground.
As we round the corner, the former Fountain of Nations site is almost completely empty now. Large construction equipment continues its work to clear the site for what will be sprawling green space in the future.
As we pass over the Moana Journey of Water site, we can see more frames have been installed in the ground for pathways. Additionally, the first concrete section has been poured for the new walkway.
We can also see more clearing happening behind the walls in front of Art of Animation.
As we return to the Monorail station, we get an even better view of the planters being formed for the new park entrance.
