Between the EPCOT Food & Wine Festival, Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party coming up soon, and the continued 50th Anniversary Celebrations — now is an excellent time to plan a visit to Disney World!
But, things are constantly changing around the parks and beyond and it’s important to stay in the know when it comes to current construction projects happening in Disney World. Luckily, we’ve rounded up the biggest Disney World construction updates from this week so you’re prepared on your next visit!
Construction continues on the Walt Disney World Railroad train tunnel being built over at TRON: Lightcycle Run. More concrete walls are being installed on either side of what will eventually be the railroad tracks.
You can check out the train tunnel and wall from the other side in the photo below. It also looks like crews are working on building more concrete structures, but we’re not totally sure what those will end up being!
We’re keeping an eye out for the latest TRON news and updates — like when it might actually open — so stay tuned for more!
The pick-a-pearl area at Mitsukoshi in the Japan pavilion has been closed of for a bit now, and it’s completely blocked off by black tarps.
Disney hasn’t shared any plans for this area or what might be happening behind the scenes, but we’ll keep an eye out for more updates.
Don’t get stuck in the Land Pavilion in EPCOT! The escalator is closed, so for now you’ll have to use the elevator or stairs.
Luckily, there’s plenty to do in the Land Pavilion should you find yourself in there — check out Soarin’ Around the World or Living with the Land!
The (rather large) Journey of Water — Inspired by Moana attraction is coming together piece by piece — literally. Crews have been working on installing all of the rock formations that will be home to the “immersive water-based attraction.”
Slowly but surely, things are starting to take shape. We can’t wait for this attraction to open — so be sure to stay tuned for even more updates!
There’s almost no trace of what once was the Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show building at the Polynesian Resort. We’ve been watching crews demolish the structure and smooth all that dirt over for a few weeks. Disney is preparing to start construction on the Polynesian Village expansion which will include new rooms, restaurants, and merchandise locations too!
Thinking about planning a Disney World vacation? We don’t blame you! Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is returning later this year and promises fun and fright. Not only that, but guests can celebrate the holiday season at Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party and the EPCOT Festival of the Holidays too!
