CommuniCore Hall and Plaza Opening June 10 in EPCOT

EPCOT walls are coming down! The final pieces of the World Celebration project — CommuniCore Hall and Plaza — are opening on June 10. Walls have been a part of the EPCOT experience for over four years, so June 10 is going to be a very good day.

CommuniCore will be home to EPCOT’s many festivals and celebrations. Its demo kitchen and mixology bar will highlight festival treats and drinks. But it will be a vibrant space even when no festivals are happening. Guests are invited to enjoy the awesome AC, meet Disney icons, and enjoy special events throughout the year.

Mickey & Friends will debut when CommuniCore opens on June 10. It’s been a while since EPCOT had a meet-and-greet with more than Mickey and Minnie. Currently, you can meet the couple at the Disney and Pixar Short Film Festival in World Celebration.

The CommuniCore Plaza stage will host several special events a year. First up is “¡Celebración Encanto!”, where families can sing Encanto favorites with Mirabel and Bruno. This show runs several times a day from June 10 through September 6.

Finally, CommuniCore Plaza will be a great space to enjoy a laid-back EPCOT, especially at night. Guests will enjoy views of the Spaceship Earth-inspired CommuniCore Hall, Spaceship Earth itself, and Inspiration Garden.

We first heard of the World Celebration project over five years ago. The area’s original designs were stunning… and then they were scrapped. CommuniCore Hall, CommuniCore Plaza, Inspiration Garden, and Journey of Water might not be what we expected, but I’m still looking forward to experiencing the completed land.
