As we continue our look at various projects around Epcot, we’ve made it to a more overarching post as we walk around Future World and take a look at preparations underway for not only the 2019 Epcot International Food & Wine Festival, but also some work related to the upcoming Future World overhaul project.
We’ll start in Future World east, where we see what we can only assume are the start of preparations for the Future World overhaul project set to begin September 8th. For a list of all expected closures, check out our post where we break the closures down by location and date.
Fences have been installed along the pathway to Test Track. Of course, Test Track will survive the overhaul, but Mouse Gear nearby will be reimagined later this year.
For right now, nothing is fenced off completely.
Taste Track has been removed and won’t be returning for the 2019 Epcot International Food & Wine Festival. You can also see the end of the fence on the hill in the distance.
More fencing is up near the DVC kiosk in Future World east on the way to Test Track.
Making our way over to Future World west, we find a massive amount of work taking place for both the Future World overhaul and the Food & Wine Festival. We’ll start with some more walls, running from Innoventions down towards the Seas Pavilion and Coral Reef.
Now for a look at some work that combines guest flow improvements as well as Food & Wine work. The pathway between the Imagination Pavilion and World Showcase is getting widened alongside the installation of some of the Future World Food & Wine kiosks. Normally, the kiosk installation would happen behind walls, but this area would still be available to guests via a series of walkways. With those walkways being widened right now, there is now pathway between the Imagination Pavilion area and World Showcase.
Here’s a look around, first from the ground and then from the monorail.
