So this moved to a new location, but how long before this new location is demolished?

I never really cared for Innoventions, so I'm alright with it going. It's a shell of its original self as well.

Was there yesterday and walls were already up. Epcot was where we spent the morning yesterday to say goodbye to a few things, and noticed walls already up....

WDWMagic has a dark mode??

Where you're really wrong is for not using Dark Mode!!!

I've seen bigger fountains in our local malls. Hope it's more than this.

So, I just learned today that this fountain is closed. I've only visited WDW 3 times, but I made it a point to visit this fountain each trip after seeing it the first time. It's very beautiful. They haven't mentioned what is replacing it? Another fountain? We're going on our next trip in April 2020. Hoping whatever it is they're working on is done by then.

This kinda saddens me as it was not overgrown foliage it was such a nice tree populated area with densely rich green beautiful plants/foliage, one of my favorite quiet spots to relax by. (by the coral reef) another favorite spot now gone. Such is progress rip it all down.

Yep, I was in the wrong thread. Sorry about that.
