Permits Filed For Entrance Changes to Epcot

Permits have been filed in Orange County in relation to the overhaul of the entrance area to Epcot.  “Project G” calls for “Enabling Works at North Pathways, including sitework, demo, hardscape, landscaping”.

Given the information and concept drawings for the new entrance area, it’s likely that the permits are in reference to this project.  Permits are typically filed just prior to work beginning, so we expect the project to be underway in the near future.  There’s no completion date listed in the permit, which will then expire as this time next year.

As reported earlier, part of the renovations will include moving the Leave a Legacy monuments to an alternative site and installing more greenery and walkways in the entrance courtyard.  A reimagined fountain will take center stage in front of Spaceship Earth as well.

Other Epcot Projects

The initial announcement of the changes coming to Epcot also included updates to the space between Spaceship Earth and World Showcase, as well as the addition of a Play Pavilion in the remnants of the Wonders of Life Pavilion.  No mention of any of those spaces in the permits that were filed recently.  Stay tuned for more information as it is announced.

These projects are all expected to be complete for the 50th anniversary of Walt Disney World in 2021.
