More Steel Installed at CommuniCore Hall Including First Themed Column

We want you to get the most out of your ‘luxury villa’ stay in Solterra, Davenport (near Championsgate and just south of the Disney World Resort area). To help out, we have sourced the following blog post to keep you up to date with news from Walt Disney World Resort. Thanks to the guys over at Blog Mickey for the original post...

While visiting EPCOT recently, we noticed that crews continued to make some good progress on the CommuniCore Hall structure in World Celebration. As a reminder, CommuniCore Hall and Journey of Water – Inspired by Moana are both scheduled to be open in late 2023 as Disney aims to complete a multi-year project that has seen a significant portion of the former Future World section of the park behind construction walls.

Here’s a look at the progress this weekend, including the first themed column, which you can see is white instead of the standard, unthemed steel that makes up most of the structure.

A closer look at the white column looks like it could be the column seen behind the singer in the concept art below, or a column that would be in the general area of the CommuniCore Hall festival stage.

The CommuniCore Hall multi-purpose building replaces the World Celebration Festival Center, which was budget cut during the theme park closures in March 2020. CommuniCore Hall will be home to a festival stage, meet & greets, a demonstration kitchen, a mixology bar, and serve as a festival support center. It is expected to open in late 2023.

Here’s a look at the building, which will sit in the southwest corner of World Celebration.
