Work continues on the Epic Universe preview center in Universal CityWalk Orlando, which takes over the former Universal Legacy Store.

Epic Universe Preview Center

During a visit to the future site of the Epic Universe Preview Center on May 23, 2024, we noted a new screen being installed above the entrance.

So far, the screen is made up of just two panels. With crew members actively working while we were there, it is likely more updates are on the way.

Earlier in the week, the scaffolding behind the screen had been erected and crews installed a large framework. When we last checked on the building, a small metal frame had been added.

The dark frame is attached to the building but juts out through the scaffolding. Some poles of the frame are thinner than others.

The large black frame with wood slats on the right was already part of the building’s facade.

The Universal Legacy Store closed in January. Universal later confirmed an “interactive” Epic Universe preview center was coming to CityWalk this year. The new theme park is scheduled to open in 2025.

More CityWalk Construction

Meanwhile, across from the preview center, construction walls now block the bench seating facing the lagoon stage. The amphitheater is completely closed for the time being.

Signs on the walls read “Please Pardon Our Dust.” They stretch between two kiosks on either side of the seating area.

There is also construction ongoing at the former Cinnabon and Quiet Flight Surf Shop locations.
