Epcot Entrance to Be Impacted by Construction Work Starting April 18

As previously announced, work is underway across the Walt Disney World Resort to enhance the overall Guest arrival experience at Disney's theme parks and make it easier for Guests to travel around the property. This multi-phased transformation began at Disney’s Hollywood Studios last year with a new entrance allowing Guests to enter the park from Osceola Parkway, and work has begun at the tram and parking lot areas at Transportation and Ticket Center.


Beginning the morning of Thursday, April 18, the following operational impacts will go into effect as we work to enhance the main entrance area at Epcot:

Main entrance: During this initial phase of construction, Guests coming from the parking lot will enter Epcot through the security screening area located at the eastside entrance. Guests coming by monorail, bus, or taxi will continue to enter Epcot through the security screening area located at the westside entrance (closer to the bus stops).

Trams: During construction, the load/unload zones for the main Guest tram will reposition to temporary locations, resulting in an increased walking distance for Guests. In addition, tram service will be separated between two tram lanes, similar to the tram service at the Transportation and Ticket Center. These trams will be referred to as the “West Tram” and “East Tram,” and they will service the following lots:
  • West Tram lots: Journey, Amaze, Discover, Create
  • East Tram lots: Imagine, Explore, Wonder
And that is all for now. Before concluding, remember to like us on our official Facebook page and follow us on Twitter for live updates from the parks. If you'd like to make a donation to OTPN, feel free to use the "donate" button. Thanks for your support.
