At the 2019 D23 Expo, a complete reimagining of EPCOT’s Future World was announced. Many Disney Parks fans have felt that this area could use a refresh for years, so this was welcome news.

During Disney World’s COVID-19 closure, however, EPCOT’s numerous construction projects became problematic and many were canceled or postponed due to financial concerns at The Walt Disney Company.

Fortunately, however, construction progress is now continuing at EPCOT theme park! Yesterday’s aerial photos from Twitter user @bioreconstruct give Disney World goers a look at both World Discovery and World Celebration.

In this photo, the Play! Pavilion, which has recently undergone major exterior progress, can be seen on the far right. This structure will be an Imagineering playground, filled with interactive activities for the entire family.

The highly anticipated Moana themed water attraction will also be located in World Discovery, though any progress that has been made on it does not appear to be visible in this photo.

Here, we see an aerial look at the World Celebration progress. Although plans for the previously-announced Festival Center have been axed by Disney at this time, the area still appears to be moving forward.

We love seeing EPCOT construction moves forward, as the theme park prepares to welcome a whole new generation of Disney fans.

As Walt Disney himself said:

“That’s what Epcot is, an experimental prototype community that will always be in a state of becoming. It will never cease to be a living blueprint of the future, where people actually live a life they can’t find anywhere else in the world.”

Are you excited to see EPCOT’s new neighborhoods come to life? Are you most excited about the updates to World Discover, World Celebration, World Nature, or the World Showcase?

Plan your next Walt Disney World vacation and see all of the new and exciting offerings coming to EPCOT!
