Wall Behind Dreamers Point Revealed Over 4 Months After Opening in EPCOT

A tarp has been removed from the wall behind Dreamers Point in World Celebration Gardens at EPCOT, revealing its design.

World Celebration Gardens opened for Walt’s birthday in December. A new Walt Disney statue, Walt the Dreamer, is located at Dreamers Point directly behind Spaceship Earth. Although the statue and EPCOT-inspired stone bench it sits on were unveiled, a tarp remained on the wall behind.

Rolling planters also blocked the wall from view. The planters remain, but the tarp is now gone and we can see the wall through the shrubs.

It has a pattern of four-sided shapes — diamonds and rhombuses — creating the illusion of three-dimensional cubes on the wall. There are also circles within hexagons periodically across the pattern. The shapes are carved into panels attached to the wall.

The pattern is reminiscent of pavement and other designs in EPCOT, particularly in World Celebration Gardens.

The panels are attached with silver screws. There are some small diamonds of mesh, possibly over hidden speakers in the wall. The lights and sounds of World Celebration Gardens sync up with Spaceship Earth light shows at night.

This construction wall is just a minor construction project in World Celebration Gardens. The more noticeable work is on CommuniCore Hall and Plaza, located across the gardens from Dreamers Point. CommuniCore will finally open in June.

World Celebration Gardens, including CommuniCore, is part of a years-long reimagining of EPCOT that was delayed partially due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The reimagining also included turning MouseGear into Creations Shop and the opening of Journey of Water, Inspired by “Moana.”

A new, limited-time “Encanto” sing-along — “¡Celebración Encanto!” — will debut with the opening of CommuniCore Plaza.
