Other recent Disney World permits

Walt Disney World has filed numerous work permits recently, including several for EPCOT, where a wide variety of projects are ongoing as part of the park’s reinvention.

Two recent permits have been related to EPCOT’s “Project G,” which is the term Walt Disney Imagineering is using to refer to the EPCOT entrance renovation near Spaceship Earth.

Another recent permit is specifically related to the upcoming nighttime spectacular, HarmoniUS, which is expected to debut before Disney World’s 50th Anniversary next year.

In non-EPCOT permit news, two Walt Disney World Resort hotels are expected to undergo construction in the near future. The Boardwalk Resort pool will be updated and the Art of Animation Resort will also receive some improvements.

The news of Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort’s upcoming Moana remodel is sure to also lead to some permit filings very soon.
