The plastic sheets we saw hanging around the second floor of the lobby last month have been removed, but now white construction walls cover the check-in desks and bell services on the first floor.

While this resort is within walking distance of the Skyliner station located at EPCOT’s International Gateway, A-frame signs were posted requesting guests utilize the pathways through the main lobby to access the walkway to the park instead.

One of the doorways inside the Beach Club Marketplace was also closed, and an A-frame sign was posted asking guests to use an alternate exit.

The black curtain that once hung at the top of this set of stairs has now been removed, and guests are able to utilize them once again.

Outside, barriers, lifts, and other construction equipment have been staged, likely to aid with refurbishment work on the exterior of the resort.
