Twitter user @bioreconstruct shared this photo of the roof, which resembles the surface of the iconic Spaceship Earth geosphere.

@bioreconstruct noted:

Roof replacement almost complete at Play Pavilion.

While we don’t know exactly what the inside of the Play! Pavilion will look like and no interior pictures have been released at this time, this Disney artist rendering indicates that the innovative new interactive space will resemble The Internet metropolis from Wreck It Ralph 2: Ralph Breaks the Internet (2018).

We know that The Incredibles’ fashion design maven Edna Mode will feature heavily in this new EPCOT area, leading an interactive experience that allows Guests to help her rid the world of bad style. Huey, Dewey, and Louie will also be included in the Play! Pavilion in a water balloon attraction.

The Play! Pavilion is set to open for Walt Disney World Resort’s 50th Anniversary Celebration in 2021.

Innoventions East and West

Construction work is also continuing in the Innoventions West and Innoventions East areas of the EPCOT theme park.

Trusses raised recently near demolition of Innoventions West.
Another picture on @bioreconstruct’s Twitter account showcases changes that are occurring in the former Innoventions East, where the MouseGear shop was located:
Here we see:

Both Innoventions areas will be undergoing remodeling as part of EPCOT’s Future World reimagining.
