Though construction began in the parking lot months ago, there hasn’t been a lot of visible progress.

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.
