EPCOT Guest Relations Construction Continues; New Location Established
Dedicated parkgoers expect an EPCOT day to provide a wealth of inspiration, exploration, and tasty treats. Over the past two years, veteran guests also know to be prepared for another quintessential park feature: consruction. With an enormous redesign well underway, guests recently found themselves walking new, direct paths from World Discovery to World Showcase. However, the new route also brought the closure of the parks traditional Guest Relations building. Today, we went searching for the new location and checked out the refurbishment work on the original space.
After waving to two of our favorite Disney canine pals, Goofy and Pluto, a quick turn back toward the park’s main entrance revealed the new location for Guest Relations, an important stop for many beginning a day in the parks. Among other services, Guest Relations makes a stellar stop for those looking to set up a Disability Access Pass or needing a technical assist.
Luckily, the new location also appears tucked away in a shady locale. The waits earlier today proved to be quite short too.
Guest Relations Construction Progress
With the new walkway revealed last week, construction walls quickly blocked off the original location for Guest Relations, which was to the left of Spaceship Earth on a path toward Creations Shop.
During much of the construction recently, the walkway did not go straight through to the new merchandise location. Instead, it turned directly in front of Guest Relations to wind guests through World Discovery and past the park’s newest attraction, “Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout,” opening this summer.
With much scaffolding remaining, it appears that Guest Relations may stay in its new location (pictured again below) for quite some time. Still, work on other parts of the original building continue to move swiftly. The space will also house the new quick-service location, Connections Cafe and Eatery, as well as the park’s Starbucks. Both are set to open this spring.
