Innoventions West Being Demolished at EPCOT in Walt Disney World
If you’ve been following along with MickeyBlog then you know that EPCOT is going through a massive overhaul and that the area that is now Future World will be updated to include a new fountain, Walt Disney statue, lush landscaping as well as a whole host of new restaurants and shops.
As part of this re-imagining, the pavilion formerly known as Innoventions West is being demolished.
Our MickeyBlogger was on the scene at EPCOT yesterday where we managed to capture some images of the big changes afoot.
Just weeks ago you could still see the pavilion’s overhang and external walls. However, these are now gone with just the beams remaining.
Work on Innoventions has been a long time in the making. In Spring of 2015, the plaza was closed as an attraction.
Then last year both Club Cool and the Fountain View Starbucks where closed to make way for the demolition.
This area will be used as a festival space for EPCOT’s four seasonal festivals that take place annually It will also boast a fireworks viewing area and rooftop garden.
The entire area now has construction walls surrounding the pavilion.
However, the walls are short enough to allow a view through the structure that remains.
We can’t wait to watch this underused section of the park magically transform to encompass part of the “World Celebration” neighborhood.
Lots of other details are slowly being put into place. We already shared images with you of the giant commemorative pylons going up in the World Celebration area!
And as we previously mentioned, a new fountain will be added just outside of Spaceship Earth and this detail has already been added to the interactive app you find when using My Disney Experience at the theme parks!
