Water Fountain Installed at Communicore Hall, Construction Walls Down From New Walkway

The exterior of CommuniCore Hall at EPCOT is almost done and construction walls have come down from a new pathway near Spaceship Earth.

CommuniCore Hall & Plaza Construction

As we noted in our last construction update, it appears that paneling is complete on the exterior of the Hall and the overhangs around CommuniCore Plaza. The structures feature white triangular panels inspired by Spaceship Earth and black accent panels.

There were a couple of construction vehicles in CommuniCore Plaza during our most recent visit but most materials were cleared from this area.

Some of the columns of the CommuniCore Plaza overhangs have orange-brown wraps around them. A blank white sign is visible on the glass wall of CommuniCore Hall to the left in the above photo.

There is an interesting short, transparent wall up near the restrooms — to the left in the above photo.

When CommuniCore Hall and Plaza open, the limited-time “¡Celebración Encanto!” will debut on the Plaza stage.

The Plaza is surrounded by trees and features artificial turf for guests to relax on.

Palm trees and Spaceship Earth flooring outside a CommuniCore Hall entrance

On the other side of CommuniCore Hall, we didn’t see any construction activity, but this gave us a good look at the walkway. There’s Spaceship Earth-inspired flooring outside one entrance. Palm trees shade the sidewalk.

Construction Walls Down Near Spaceship Earth

The walls have come down around one side of the new sidewalk by the Spaceship Earth restrooms on the World Nature side. In their place are temporary rolling planters. For now, this sidewalk is only available for use by Cast Members. The walls were still up on our last visit, less than a week ago.

Progress has also been made in the area that houses the water station used by Journey of Water, Inspired by “Moana.” The dirt has been flattened and evened out. Short light fixtures can be seen installed at the bottom of the photo.

The area backs up to the location of the Moana meet and greet in EPCOT, which is why a few palm trees have been planted within the construction area.

CommuniCore Hall and Plaza will open on June 10, 2024.
