Epcot may have a new nighttime show and a new attraction, but its transformation is still a long way from being complete.
Past Spaceship Earth, Disney World’s second theme park remains a sea of construction walls. With the center of the former Future World still an active work zone, you’ll be directed to either the Test Track and Mission: Space area or the section with the Land and The Seas pavilion, without an easy way of cutting across the park.
The west side of the park, called World Discovery, has some new additions with the Space 220 restaurant, the reopened Club Cool and the new Creations Shop, replacing Mouse Gear as Epcot’s premiere merchandise location.
But World Discovery is also home to ongoing construction at Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind. Now scheduled to open in summer 2022, the ride’s queue and load building, the former Universe of Energy pavilion, still has plenty of work left.
Across World Showcase Lagoon, the enormous building containing Cosmic Rewind’s coaster is hard to miss.
The former Wonders of Life pavilion, however, doesn’t have any obvious work happening. Officially, it’s still supposed to be transformed into the new interactive Play pavilion.
World Showcase offers an escape from construction walls, now that the expansion to the France pavilion has opened.
