According to Jim Hill on the The Disney Dish Podcast that was released earlier today, the land clearing behind Japan and American Adventure pavilions is for a drone landing strip for the upcoming night show...

He said that the drones would fly over American Adventure before and after the show and the guest walkway in front of American Adventure would be blocked off during that time so at no point the drones are flying directly over guests

They start talking about it at about 18:55 https://disneydish.bandcamp.com/track/ep-165-is-epcot-building-a-drone-landing-strip

There was a permit filed yesterday by Balfour Beatty Construction for "Install temporary office trailer container for Project C1" at 600 E Buena Vista Dr. The Reedy Creek fire station is 651 E Buena Vista so 600E could be for this plot of land. Balfour is one of Disney big contractors. This is the first mention I have seen of Project C1. Let the speculation begin! :)

"C1" sounds like a droid's name.

Therefore, the new Illuminations will be a Star Wars show.

It's "Container 1".

A giant container for storing all the food and wine booths for the 2 weeks of the year when there isn't a festival on at Epcot.

A new light rail system with the Central Transfer being right here...

Could also be paying respect to CrossRail in London. (It’ll never be the Elizabeth Line to me...)

Is it possible that this is a staging area for materials for the new Swolphin tower and then could be reused later for something else? They don't seem to need it for the skyliner but that's another project of significance close by

Edit: Sorry, didn't see last post before replying. My shot in the dark guess is Swolphin but I believe Martin said earlier on that there were plans for a resort there eventually. Might as well get some of the clearing done now.

It could be, especially with how tiny (for Disney) the surrounding space is for swolphin.

But even then, it's a little out of the way. Surely there's something a little closer.

If I'm looking at the right spot it seems pretty close considering the building density over near the boardwalk. Certainly a lot closer than the stolport is to Fort Wilderness, although that project will need a lot more staging space
