Default International Gateway construction...

Well, looks like things are starting to come to fruition at the IG....Skyliner changes and/or prep work for a busier IG.

The article refers to the "ticket booths", I assume meaning both the ticket booth and the guest relations booth remain open.

Confirms what I have been posting for many months. Disney will expand the security check point of IG and fix the bottleneck.

Absolutely! I second that vote of smartness!

Thanks for pictures.
They announced a late July/August date for the Skyliner that connects to HS with hopes to have “training” and security ready for StarWars but the Epcot IG will open much later with planned 14 turnstiles to enter..... according to boat captain on Friday.

There isn’t room for that many turnstiles. I expect security and turnstiles to be streamlined, so that there is room at both to deal with the Skyliner passengers.

So a permanent security structure for those arriving by boat, foot and gondolas. And then maybe 4 extra turnstiles in the existing location. But I don’t think there will be anywhere near 14 turnstiles.
