Walt Disney Imagineering has filed a “new” permit to build new parking lots at EPCOT. The permit, which was filed yesterday and mirrors one filed in April 2022, lists Hubbard Construction Company as the contractor to “provide new parking lots at EPCOT”. Hubbard Construction is a giant in the Central Florida landscape, having been tasked with projects such as the Monorail system and Bay Lake Lagoon project in the 1970s and countless other projects since then.
The original permit listed August 2023 as the end date for the project, but the new permit does not have an expiration date. If there is no expiration date listed in a permit, it defaults to a 1-year expiration date. It’s likely that Disney wants to have this work completed by the end of fiscal 2023, which ends around October 1st. It’s also possible that this work needs to be completed by the time the World Celebration construction wraps up, which Disney has previously said will be in late 2023.
One thing we didn’t know when the initial permit was filed was the location of this new parking lot. However, we now know that a new parking lot is being built “behind” the Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind building (blue). Here’s a look at the general area where a parking lot is currently being built (pink).
It’s unclear if there will be more parking lots added to EPCOT, but there isn’t a lot of space left in the current 90-acre space. Here’s a look at some of our previous coverage of Disney’s recent parking lot projects at EPCOT:

It’s already a serious hike in/out from/to the parking lot to/from the park. Instead of building a new lot, how about adding some moving sidewalks instead?
