Could this wooden gate represent the attraction entrance? The lagoon is directly to the right of the entrance in the concept art, which would line up with its proximity to the trench.

With Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind already in previews, it seems that the work in this part of EPCOT has gotten even busier.
