Some tall new poles have been installed in the future CommuniCore Plaza Stage area as construction on the area continues.

During our visit to EPCOT today, we spotted six tall new poles in place above what will become the CommuniCore Plaza Stage.

The poles stick out of the ground diagonally and have gaps in the inner section, perhaps suggesting they will hold lights or speakers for the stage setup.

Such poles were not present in the concept art previously released of CommuniCore Plaza, but there’s always the possibility for things to be changed between concept and execution.

CommuniCore Plaza is set to open with the rest of World Celebration still under construction in late 2023. Take a look at our latest construction update below for more of the latest on this, and let us know what you think in the comments below!

Most EPCOT construction is in the center of the park, where CommuniCore Hall and CommuniCore Plaza are under construction in World Celebration.

A new statue will also be installed in an area known as Dreamers Point, with Walt Disney resting on some steps and gazing upon the final idea he conceived and began developing before his passing. Dreamers Point will be directly behind Spaceship Earth.

When World Celebration is complete, it will serve as the primary hub for the entire park, with new nighttime lights, exhibition spaces, music venues, and room for food kiosks intended to expand festival opportunities at EPCOT and promote an ethos of community.
