Out of all four of Walt Disney World's theme parks, Epcot is the one with the least amount of construction going on. That said, things have definitely changed in the last few weeks, as multiple parts of Future World and World Showcase are now behind walls for refurbishment or to make way for temporary offerings that will open as part of this year's International Food & Wine Festival. This afternoon, we will focus only on Future World. Let's start our tour of the area:

First of all, walls are up next to the ramp leading to the monorail station:

Inside the park:

Innoventions West is still mostly closed to Guests. A peek behind the walls reveals that very little (if anything at all) has been done since the former exhibits closed earlier this year. It's such a shame:

Innoventions East has less walls:

The former Home of the Future:

Work on the new Colortopia exhibit continues:

Walls are also up around the splash pad between Mission:SPACE and Test Track:

All the attractions have a very short wait time during this time of the year:

Heading to the other side of Future World:

The park's rose garden is closed due to the installation of a Food & Wine booth:

A peek... through the walls:

A nearby section of the park is closed for the same reason:

Some of the Captain EO references were removed when the movie previews came to Epcot, and were never brought back. The attraction is now known as the Magic Eye Theater according to these signs:

Captain EO is rumored to be closing before the end of the year. We will see what actually happens:

At The Land, new stroller parking signs have finally been installed right outside the entrance to the pavilion. We hope this small change will make the job of the pavilion's Cast Members a bit easier:

Living with the Land is currently closed for refurbishment. It will reopen on September 18, 2015:

Walls are up around the loading and unloading areas:

Soarin' is still open. The ride will close for about six months at the beginning of January 2016:
