CommuniCore Plaza is located alongside CommuniCore Hall on the edge of World Celebration Gardens. The new area will feature live entertainment, including the new sing-along “¡Celebración Encanto!” Disney’s official website promises other performances throughout the year.

A stage at CommuniCore Plaza is decorated with colorful props and a sign displaying the showtimes for a performance titled "¡Celebración! Encanto." Musical equipment and a cart with flowers are also on the stage.

“¡Celebración Encanto!” will have multiple daytime shows every day of the week, now displayed on the screen over the CommuniCore Plaza stage. The stage features an LED screen and colorful decorations inspired by “Encanto.” The decorations will presumably rotate with different shows and festivals.

CommuniCore Plaza features an open-air pavilion adorned with colorful decorations and flags, boasting an elevated circular platform. Several people stand and converse nearby, with picnic tables and trees enhancing the vibrant backdrop.

Colorful flags hang on strings over the stage and around its edge. The columns around it are wrapped with brightly-colored sheets.

CommuniCore Plaza features an outdoor area with modern structures, a dome-shaped building, scattered umbrellas, and palm trees under a partly cloudy sky.

There is ample viewing space for guests wanting to see the new show. Numerous umbrellas on the artificial grass provide shade for guests throughout the day. The tall slanted poles are mounted with lights for stage performances.

With the opening of CommuniCore Plaza and CommuniCore Hall, the multi-year EPCOT reimagining is now complete. Guests will now be able to experience both of these locations, as well as World Celebration Gardens, Dreamers Point, and a newly reimagined flex space when they visit EPCOT.

The CommuniCore Plaza features an outdoor patio area with tall, round black tables and large, white geometric partition structures. Greenery and trees provide a lush backdrop under a partly cloudy sky.
