Updated Aerial Pictures of World Celebration at EPCOT

The center of World Celebration at EPCOT is currently scheduled to open in December 2023. While Disney hasn’t provided an official opening date, preparations are being made to open the area to guests. New aerials from the always great @bioreconstruct show what the area looks like ahead of welcoming guests.

For starters, it looks like construction walls have already been moved to allow for access to the center of World Celebration. But, construction walls are still in place around the new CommuniCore Hall and Plaza.

Construction walls remaining around CommuniCore Hall and Plaza suggest that Disney won’t have it ready to open at the same time they open the center of World Celebration.

A closer look shows a seating area near Connections Cafe, new landscaping, and the center icon planter. Note that the planter closest to Spaceship Earth encroaches into the gray EPCOT logo, throwing off some of the symmetry. It’s an interesting design choice.

And here’s one additional view of the area as a whole. Disney fans were quick to point out the construction walls and planters sort of resemble a sideways Olaf.

Overall, the heart of World Celebration will seemingly have lots of new seating, plenty of new trees, and provide a new way to navigate EPCOT. The space has big shoes to fill since it sits on the site of the old Fountain of Nations, and took Disney roughly four years to build. It’ll be interesting to see how the new area looks, feels, and flows once it opens.
