But now, it’s time for something old that is new again. Today, EPCOT’s entrance is looking VERY different because Leave A Legacy has returned!
Headed to EPCOT for some fun at the 2020 Taste of EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival?
Well, if you’re planning on entering through the International Gateway entrance (a.k.a. the “back” entrance), you may experience some issues. It appears Disney is experiencing some technical difficulties today with this back entrance to the park that is preventing guests from entering.
Disney World is constantly preparing for their 50th anniversary coming up in October of 2021.
We’ve seen several upcoming attractions like Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure, Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, and TRON Lightcycle Run, and many places are getting a FULL makeover like the Walt Disney World entrance and EPCOT. One of the most recent projects involved the Magic Kingdom entrance sign, and we’ve got a look at how it’s coming along!
There are several construction projects going on around Disney World that we’ve been keeping an eye on.
Over at Magic Kingdom, we’ve got the TRON construction in progress. Plus, there’s some construction going on at Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure and Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind in EPCOT, as well as the Star Wars hotel elsewhere on property. Recently, we added another project to our watch list — the Magic Kingdom entry sign paint job.
We love catching a glimpse of the construction going on at EPCOT’s France pavilion from our eyes in the sky — Disney Skyliner!
But today we couldn’t believe how much progress they’ve made! Before you proceed, click here to see what the France pavilion looked like back in February of this year so you can compare!
Last year, Disney announced EPCOT would be undergoing a multi-year transformation.
The park would ultimately be divided into four distinct “neighborhoods”: World Celebration, World Nature, World Discovery, and World Showcase. Many shops, restaurants, and experiences located in Future World were closed or relocated shortly before the temporary closures occurred.
Yesterday, we stepped inside Magic Kingdom for the first time since mid-March to attend a special Cast Member preview.
We spent the day exploring and seeing how the park has changed now that so many new health and safety measures have been implemented. We checked out the modified entertainment offerings, rode some of our favorite attractions, and hit up some shops and restaurants ahead of the park’s official opening to the general public on July 11th.
With Magic Kingdom and Disney’s Animal Kingdom’s Annual Passholder previews and grand reopenings scheduled for next week, final preparations are being made to welcome back guests.
And while earlier, we shared some of biorecontruct’s aerial photography of Cinderalla Castle before we were able to catch a glimpse of the Magic Kingdom icon with our own eyes, we’re back to show you some new photos of the probable temperature check tents that are being set up outside the entrance of each theme park!
