Glaring Eyesore to Remain In EPCOT as Construction Continues

Out of all four theme parks making up Walt Disney World Resort, EPCOT may be the most beautiful one of all.

Like Animal Kingdom, EPCOT emphasizes the beauty of the natural world. Unlike Animal Kingdom, however, there are more flowers to go around, especially during the Disney Park’s annual International Flower and Garden Festival.

As a result, the Disney Park is full of vibrant colors, fluttering butterflies, and exotic architecture.

So when something creates an eyesore in EPCOT, it’s incredibly easy to notice. Unfortunately, that’s exactly what’s happening in EPCOT’s Canada Pavilion.

EPCOT offers lots of attractions, from rides to shows. Each show is unique, down to how it’s been filmed and how Guests can view it. Over in the Canada Pavilion, Guests can watch Canada Far and Wide in Circle-Vision 360.

O Canada, Far and Wide in Circle-Vision 360

Circle-Vision 360 is special because it gives Guests a total 360-degree view, so they can see the whole picture from every angle.

Directly outside this attraction lies a picturesque view, imitating the noble Canadian architecture, the scenic nature of the Canadian Rockies, and vibrant gardens.

But the view is currently obscured by some construction, which began in early June and has persisted.

While fans understand the importance of this construction and upkeep, it can’t be denied that it’s become a bit of an eyesore against the World Showcase’s Canada Pavilion.

The mass of scaffolding is covering the architecture as Walt Disney Imagineering continues touching up Hotel du Canada, obscuring the view.

While this may ruin the illusion of the Walt Disney World Resort, it’s necessary for maintaining EPCOT’s Canada Pavilion.
