PHOTOS: Additional Walls and Windows Installed in Mouse Gear at EPCOT

The transformation of EPCOT has been making strides recently, with windows installed in Mouse Gear and work beginning on the new Leave A Legacy location. Though there’s still a long way to go, the World Celebration area of the park is getting closer to completion.


Work lights are on inside Innoventions East near Guest Relations, which will soon house the new Starbucks location and a quick-service restaurant.


From behind the Mouse Gear building, we could see new walls and more windows in the breezeway.


These windows face into the breezeway between Mouse Gear and Innoventions East. The entire exterior of the new MouseGear will be comprised of windows, making the shop more open and airy like the former Centorium and Communicore.


We could see more work lights on inside the former Electric Umbrella and Mouse Gear from this side.


Some high-reach vehicles were in the Electric Umbrella area of the building.


We can see just how many windows have been installed on this side of Mouse Gear.


Once complete, this section of the park will feature a festival center or “festival area.” Hopefully.
