Some Epcot Experiences are Now Closed

Some Epcot Experiences are Now Closed

Epcot has been a construction zone for 4 years, but now some Epcot experiences are unexpectedly closed due to recent work.

At the last D23 event in September 2019, Disney announced a ton of projects for Epcot. This ultimately led to a complete overhaul of the park. 

We have seen several of those projects completed like the addition of Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure, the reimagining of Mouse Gears (into Creations Shop) and Club Cool, and the overhaul of the park’s entrance.

In addition, the Moana Journey of Water attraction will open later this year, and Dreamer’s Point with the Walt Disney statue will also debut soon. The newly reimagined EPCOT will be completed in late 2023. Check out this timeline HERE.

While the next update is NOT related to Epcot’s reimagining, we can’t help but feel a little down that there is even more construction in Epcot. This time the UK Pavilion in the World Showcase is affected.

The United Kingdom pavilion is such a wonderful area to explore. While many of the World Showcase pavilions are inspired by a specific landmark, United Kingdom gets its design from experiencing the British countryside.

This British-themed pavilion represents the four countries of the United Kingdom; England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.  Read about everything you need to know about this charming pavilion in Susan’s guide.

For the last few days, we have noticed a privacy wall of fake shrubbery surrounding park of the UK Pavilion. It blocks off a good portion of shops and the garden area.

While we are unsure what work is being completed in this area, there are crews out and about working during the day. We were told the Toy Soldier shop will have a delayed opening while work is being done. However, the rest of the area is not accessible – for Guest safety.

Just something to keep in mind if you plan to head to Epcot in the near future! We are unsure when the green construction walls will come down.
