Construction has been underway at Epcot’s International Gateway for some time now, as part of a larger project across property to improve all the park entrances. Along with the Epcot Disney Skyliner station right next door, this area feels like it’s been behind walls forever. Luckily, it looks like they’re making good progress since our last update.

Let’s get make our way over to get a closer look at how much progress has been made here. The old ticket booths and entrance awnings were removed back at the beginning of the summer. Since then, this area has been behind walls, but construction is progressing, with steel beams erected on top of the square concrete foundation bases that had been laid earlier in August.

Currently, guests enter and exit the park via International Gateway through a series of somewhat unsightly construction walls and tarp-covered tunnels.

Peering over the walls and through the shrubbery barriers, we can see that the metal structures have gotten a nice coat of green paint since last we saw them, now adorned with a domed infrastructure on top. A new green awning will most likely be added to cover these structures so they match the rest of International Gateway’s aesthetic.

We’re also expecting new security checkpoints and turnstiles between here and the park. If you look closely, these structures make up two rows, presumably one for each security screening and for turnstiles.

This project is being worked on side-by-side with the Epcot Skyliner Station project, with the Skyliner set to open in September. This new International Gateway entrance project doesn’t have an official opening date, but we suspect it will open either simultaneously with the Skyliner or shortly after.
