Large Pilings Driven Deep into Center of World Showcase Lagoon to Support New EPCOT Fireworks Show

    While visiting EPCOT today, we noticed some new pilings driven deep into World Showcase Lagoon to support EPCOT’s new fireworks show set to debut later this year. If we’re reading the markings correctly, the pilings are some 55′ tall, but only the top 10′ or so is visible above the water. The pilings are clustered around the existing electrical vault in the middle of the Lagoon. Here’s a look!

    In the centered photos below, we can see just how far off-center the new pilings are.

    As we continue around World Showcase Lagoon in a counter-clockwise fashion, we can see that the pilings essentially surround almost half of the existing electrical vault dock.

    Here’s a final look from The American Adventure back toward Spaceship Earth.

    Guests will be treated to the debut of an all-new EPCOT nighttime spectacular later this year. A dazzling display of music, pyrotechnics, lasers and lighting, the show will feature an original composition and evocative selections from the Disney songbook – all woven together to remind us that we are more alike than different.
