PHOTOS: Construction Continues on World Celebration Neighborhood of EPCOT

The center of EPCOT’s Future World is set to become World Celebration, one of four new “neighborhoods” in the park. Right now, the area behind Spaceship Earth is mostly a construction zone as new shops and dining locations are created.

At the Innoventions East corner, much of the paneling has been removed from the underside of the roof overhang.

This will eventually house EPCOT’s more permanent Starbucks location, as well as a new quick-service restaurant.

The restaurant will have tube-shaped lights and large floor-to-ceiling windows.

This is where we’ve seen most crew members as the space is built from the ground up.

They could have updated Mousegear without changing the name. Creations…..i guess they needed something more generic to match the generic new look. Just like they did when they killed the theming at World of Disney at Disney Springs. The stores should be magical, not wal-mart and target at Disney World
