PHOTOS: Construction Progresses in World Celebration Neighborhood at EPCOT
As we move closer to the upcoming 50th Anniversary Celebration, construction continues in EPCOT at the World Celebration Neighborhood that is set to house new dining and shopping locations when complete.
Previously, we could see from the inside from one end of the building to the other filled with steel beams. Currently, window installation continues along the exterior, with new metal mesh-like panels running along above the frame.
The exterior corner roofing still sits bare with exposed beams, but larger windows have been added underneath.
This corner of the building will house a quick-service restaurant and the new location for Starbucks.
The unpainted portion above where the future Club Cool presented by Coca-Cola will live has since been built up, but is still waiting for the wrap-around paint job currently making its way over.
Scaffolding in front of Club Cool remains as workers build up the paneling.
The orange tarp over the entryway is still in place.
Painting towards the west side has progressed, but tarps remain where windows will be placed.
The upper overhang where the Creations Shop will be has been painted over with just a few remaining pieces underneath. It appears as though a sliding door has been installed in the doorway.
Tarps cover over the entryway where the windows were previously visible.
Patched areas above Creations Shop.
Work continues on the breezeway next to MouseGear, which shows a partial paint job in progress.
The scaffolding has been taken down, and ongoing work can be seen on the ceiling.
The painting continues.
Window installation travels along the inside.
New lights being are installed as exposed wires wait their turn.
Back on the east side, we can just make out some of the progress on the area that will hold Journey of Water.
