Major Part of EPCOT’s Construction is Finally Open

There are so many changes and big post-pandemic returns coming to Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

From the new TRON Lightcycle Run and Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind attractions to the return meet and greet character interactions and Fantasmic!, there’s a lot for Guests to look forward to on their next Disney vacation.

One of the biggest things Walt Disney World Guests can’t wait for, though, is the end of EPCOT’s construction and detours. And now, one major part of the construction has reopened!


EPCOT is currently undergoing a massive transformation that has introduced the development of four new “neighborhoods.” While World Showcase will keep its name, the former Future World is being split into World Celebration, World Nature, and World Discovery. Despite several construction walls and alternate walkways, the four “World” neighbors seem to be well underway.

As part of this construction, the EPCOT Guest Relations building in World Celebration closed in late March for refurbishment as part of EPCOT’s new look.

Today, May 23, the Guest Relations has now reopened with a new look and a familiar layout, including a new paint scheme, lighting, logo, and more. Disney Guest Brayden (@SirBrayden) shared on Twitter new photos of the Guest Relations location at the EPCOT theme park in Walt Disney World:

The new and improved EPCOT Guest Relations! Looks very clean

The Guest Relations refurb certainly does look clean, with new shades of white and gray lighting the space. Disney Parks has replaced the old multicolor carpet with new geometric flooring and installed the new EPCOT logos on the wall. Fun fact: each circle of the colored rings corresponds to the neighborhood’s color it represents.

There is still some scaffolding up around the Guest Relations building, located next to the Creations Shop, so don’t expect this to be the end of those construction walls anytime soon. The popular Walt Disney Animation Studios movie Moana (2016) is, of course, getting its own Walt Disney World attraction, with Walt Disney World Resort Imagineers working still to construct the “Journey of Water, Inspired by Moana” area.

The new Guest Relations space also houses a mail drop-off location – perfect for sending those souvenir postcards home to friends and family. Guest Relations is open during the normal operating hours of the EPCOT theme park.
