Two navigational updates have come to EPCOT. Two paths are now closed, one permanently and one temporarily.
Path from Spaceship Earth to The Seas
Disney has announced that northwest path that led from Spaceship Earth/the main EPCOT entrance to The Seas pavilion is now permanently closed. It originally opened in December 2019 as a construction bypass.
The path took guests on a detour near the restrooms in order to better accommodate construction in World Celebration.
Now that World Celebration has (mostly) reopened, including the new Gardens and Dreamers Point, the temporary path is no longer necessary.
However, during our visit to EPCOT today, we saw that the path is still open to guests, despite the closure announcement.
The EPCOT Rose Walk will be temporarily closed for “approximately” five weeks. This is the northeast path between World Celebration and the Rose Walk.
The closure is to accommodate the continuing construction of CommuniCore Hall and CommuniCore Plaza.
