There are still large construction walls on the right side ushering you to the new screening area.
It’s in place and open! While the area beneath the monorail was repurposed for the first half of this project to bring us the first new screening area, a whole new structure was erected for this side of the park, letting guests who park on the east parking lot walk on over to be screened and ultimately head over to the turnstiles. With Spaceship Earth glowing in the back, this was a brisk entrance into EPCOT this morning.
The area is fully covered, featuring signage with the new EPCOT stylized font. The sides of the screening area are flanked by dark green security envelope fences, keeping guests who’ve been screened within the envelope and those that have yet to go through it, outside.
We counted 14 new screeners over 7 new bays, but only 1 was open this morning, we would assume as a test area. Crowds were not terrible this morning, so more and more could open throughout the day.
