Bare construction walls had previously graced this space, but now they’ve been adorned with stylized art featuring the words “Begin Your Journey” in the new EPCOT font, plus aqua and green stripes, and of course, characters like Moana, Hei Hei, Pua, and even the Kakamora.
Concrete walkways were recently installed along the pathway, and we’re glad to see they’re very wide and spacious. If this is used as a main bypass like we think it will, it’ll be funneling a lot of guests through to The Seas and Land pavilions, so space is important.
Here’s a closer look at all of the character art featured on the walls:
The walkway leads out over to a bit of a dead end, with an existing water feature at the very end of it, but it seems guests may be able to circle around the existing planters and continue onto Future World West. The pathway is still well under construction, so we’ll have to wait and see how work progresses in the area.
You’ll notice that a section features none other than Mr. Ray from Finding Nemo. That’s because this walkway will also lead out over to The Seas with Nemo and Friends!
Fresh concrete was poured over by the other end of the walkway.
Eventually, the pathway will be extended out to the existing sidewalk, which is currently used as a backstage area.
What do you think of these new themed construction walls? These are sure to become popular in the months leading up to the attraction’s opening.
