EPCOT, originally short for “Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow,” is one Disney park that guests enjoy visiting because of its unique theming. EPCOT is divided into four neighborhoods: World Celebration, World Discover, World Nature, and World Showcase.

EPCOT has been under construction, building new gardens and new attractions like Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind and Journey of Water Inspired by Moana. Bioreconstruct tweeted a photo about construction near The Seas Pavilion bypass, which is now closed. This construction bypass has been a part of the Disney World theme park for years now, but this is a good sign as Disney is continuing its progress on completing the construction in EPCOT.

The longtime construction bypass near the Seas pavilion has closed.

The Seas Pavilion is more than just an attraction; it is an educational experience emphasizing the importance of marine conservation and our responsibility to protect the oceans. Its message of environmental stewardship resonated with visitors of all ages.

The Seas with Nemo & Friends Pavilion, inspired by the Disney-Pixar film Finding Nemo (2003), has been a cherished part of EPCOT since its opening in 1986. Disney World guests can observe a diverse array of marine life, including sea turtles, dolphins, and countless species of fish.

The bypass near The Seas Pavilion has been a familiar sight for EPCOT guests, allowing them to navigate the construction zones and ongoing projects near the pavilion. This bypass served as a practical solution for Disney to manage the park’s extensive renovation efforts while minimizing disruption to the guest experience.

Are you looking forward to the day when EPCOT will no longer have any construction walls and closures?
