  1. What kind of impact will the construction have on the festival? This will be my first time there for the festival and I was thinking about entering through the International Gateway and pretty much staying in the World Showcase. Will I miss a lot more than construction?

    • It’s just a bunch of walls in what is now called Future World. You will avoid it in World Showcase, but it’s not really that big of a deal. You just can’t easily cross from East to West in Future World
