By now, it’s almost guaranteed that you’ve heard of all the crazy updates coming to Epcot in the next couple of years. And if you haven’t, well, get stoked because it’s going to be huge! Among the new attractions are a Moana-themed water exhibit, a Guardians of the Galaxy ride, a three-story sky park, and much, much more! Starting January 4, Epcot will be seeing a lot of new changes as construction begins for these grand new projects.\nEarlier in 2019, several locations in the Future World pavilion of Epcot started closing down in preparation for the promised new attractions. In September, construction walls started to go up as the first steel beams were laid for the interactive “Journey of Water” Moana attraction.\nNow, less than a week away, we’ll start seeing more progressive changes through the park. The beloved Mouse Gear retail shop will close for the day as it relocates to a temporary new location in Innovations East on January 5.\nAlso on January 5, several character greetings in Innovations West will be closing and relocating, as well. Mickey Mouse, along with Joy, can be found in the queue area of the Disney-Pixar Short Film Festival in the Imagination! Pavilion.\nView this post on Instagram It feels like we have been waiting FOREVER for all the updates in Epcot to be completed. But the walls do make for great photo ops in the meantime 🤣😂 • • • • • #epcotwalls #wallcot #epcotconstruction #guardiansofthegalaxy #ripellensuniverseofenergy #epcotupdates #epcotchanges #spaceshipearthsunday #disneyconstruction #disneyconstructionwalls #blueskiesindisney #wdwannualpassholder A post shared by Call Me Lilo (@lilo_thelostprincess) on Sep 22, 2019 at 7:11am PDT\nMinnie Mouse will be greeting guests in the World Showcase Gazebo, and Daisy will subsequently move to Future World East.\nGoofy will also move to the Main Entrance near Spaceship Earth. Finally, Sadness and Baymax will be unavailable to greet guests for a time, and it is unclear when they will return.\nView this post on Instagram Progress can be an ugly business. Yeah, no one wants cranes blocking their views. But we’ve been through it before. We keep moving forward. And the EPCOT we’ll get in the end will be more beautiful than we could ever imagine. . .

New walkways will be expanded and rerouted through several areas to help guests around the impacted areas.\nRose Walk pathway, between Future World and World Showcase, has now been completed, while even more are still in development leading to the Family Play Zone.\nView this post on Instagram Guardians of the Galaxy building seen from Test Track.
