A new milestone has been reached as construction continues on the Epic Universe preview center in Universal CityWalk Orlando: New starry walls and portal-like trusses have been added to the entrance, along with new golden window decorations.

Epic Universe Preview Center

We spotted the changes while on our way into Universal Studios Florida on Wednesday, passing through CityWalk.

The portal-esque window decorations are gray with a golden sunburst at the center, surrounded by a white border. The center of the circle is glass. These will likely be display windows, based on the lighting at the top.

The entrance to the preview center has had new trusses added. Based on their shape, it appears that they will eventually form a portal of their own.

Crew members were actively working on installing more panels of the large screen that will cover the front of the building. About five new panels have been installed since our last update. Eventually, more panels will cover the metal framework.

Another portal-like display window is present on the opposite side. The large black frame with wood slats off to the right of the building was already part of the facade.

Like the opposite side, the walls of the entryway are now covered in a dark, starry sky.

These stars and the space sky make up the same background utilized across Epic Universe marketing and merchandise, also available for purchase in CityWalk.

The “interactive” Epic Universe preview center, opening sometime this year, replaces the former Universal Legacy Store, which closed in January.

Epic Universe will be the newest theme park at Universal Orlando Resort once it opens in 2025. Most recently, Universal shared details on the park’s Super Nintendo World, following the reveals of How to Train Your Dragon – Isle of Berk and Celestial Park. The other two lands left to get a deep-dive reveal are the Universal Monsters-inspired Dark Universe and The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Ministry of Magic.
