The close-up look at features some of the custom metal ground tiles that will pave a pathway between Dreamers Point and the center of World Celebration. Each of the metal tiles interlocks to form the pathway through the gardens that will make up part of the festival area.

“We’ve started installation of our custom metalwork that will form a gracefully curved pathway from Dreamers Point to the center of World Celebration,” Riddley said. “You may have seen early examples of our thematic metalwork elements with the new EPCOT utility covers – eagle eyed fans can likely spot more than one of these throughout our new park neighborhoods.”

“These walkway elements will include metal panels of weathered steel, aka corten steel, which will cure to form a rich orange-hued patina – providing a distinctive color and a protective corrosion barrier to the solid cast metal panels. These panels will also serve as protective grating for a large allée of trees that will follow the architectural curvature of the Connections Café and Eatery and Creations shop façades,” Riddley said.

  1. I’ll probably be mocked for this but… I’m tired of Zach and Josh throwing tasteless things into Epcot. I mean seriously… who thought putting every possible shape together would come out looking good? It honestly looks ugly. U-g-l-y.
    Those two have ruined EPCOT under Bob Paycheck’s leadership. What a downgrade, shadow-of-its-former-self of a park it has become.

  2. This guy is literally obsessed with floors. What is it all about?? I doubt many guests even notice what they are walking on and nor do they care. How about some news on some new rides or experiences? Something that’s actually interesting!
