Work Continues on Innoventions West at EPCOT
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.
With that in mind Future World’s existing Innoventions East and Innoventions West Pavilions are being demolished to make way for new buildings that will house restaurants, shops, exhibitions and lounge area!
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.
At this point we are just down to the bear bones of the pavilion. There is a construction wall around the parameter with benches, bins and hand sanitation stations now found along the construction walls.
Work on Innoventions has been a long time in the making. In Spring of 2015, the plaza was closed as an attraction.
Once re-imagined, we’re told 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.
We can’t wait to watch this underused section of the park magically transform to encompass part of the “World Celebration” neighborhood.
Disney world revealed their EPIC plans for Walt Disney World’s 50th Anniversary celebrations at the end of last week. This magnificent celebration will kick off on October 1, 2021 and will run for 18 fantastic months!
As part of the celebration, Spaceship Earth which takes center stage at Future World will get a new evening light show that will be a permanent fixture even after the 18th month Anniversary celebration.
Imagineer Zach Riddley took to Twitter yesterday to provide us with a look at these changes. You can check out my article here.
