Here is a latest look at EPCOT's upcoming 8,000-foot climate-controlled exhibit space, CommuniCore Hall.




The new venue will provide space for additional festival offerings that won't depend on Florida weather, which is also dividable into two distinct sections.




CommuniCore Hall will also be home to an indoor Mickey and Friends character meet and greet.


The surrounding CommuniCore Plaza will feature a garden with space to view entertainment from a covered performance stage and seating for nearby festival food and drink kiosks.

Pretty much why I called out the garbage critique. It’s from the usual characters who do not contribute to the boards in good faith, and actually wanting to communicate with the rest of us. Just relentless trolling, meme posts, rage farming, click-bait nonsense.

I don't think you're realising that you're defending people who aren't arguing in good faith. It's entirely possible to join a forum and spam threads with relentlessly negative comments about something of which you're not a fan.

New vids of the lighting in action look great. Can't wait for this to finally open and walla come down after 5 years. Then walls up at tt lol...and the little kiosk area by imagination pavilion.

Given the current center of Epcot, I'm not sure discussing "lining up" is appropriate for a family site.

It would be just fine if it matched the surrounding architecture. Unfortunately, it does not, so it's sticking out like a sore thumb. I guarantee people will consider this structure ugly and outdated after 5-10 years.

I'm going with "World Carbonation Activation Adventure: Bob's Tiana Bruno Refreshment Center... sponsored by Dasani.". Use of "Center" evokes the true spirit of Epcot.

World Refreshment Station Celebration?

Disstevefan113 hours ago

You’re right we can’t have the word “gas” in the name, being a fossil fuel, that’s offensive now. How about- “World Celebration 7?, Yea, 7-Eleven Refreshment Station”

Only one thing and ONE THING ONLY will make amends with me on Communicore Hall..... That this is the only place we get to hear this In the interior area of the hall..

But it's a "Gas station 7 Eleven from the Future"! Or wait, "Gas station 7 Eleven of Nature"! Or is it "Gas station 7 Eleven of Celebration!"? What random, totally unthemed land are we supposed to be in again?

If it was just the fully-formed Spaceship Earth triangles covering the facade, it would simply evoke “cynical exploitation of nostalgia for something we intentionally destroyed,” which is modern Epcot’s dominant mood anyway. The “deterioration” of the pattern is what makes it so gruesome, inescapably evoking decay and rot - and “designer who is way too pleased with their own cleverness.” Iger better hurry up and build something very substantial in Florida, because right now THIS is the embodiment of his legacy at Walt Disney World.

In its worst moments Innoventions never evoked “dystopian futuristic.” “Vacant corporate meeting space,” perhaps - but that feeling is still there, now mixed with “rotting husk of beloved icon.”

It makes me not want to care about it enough to even formulate a description... it's just ....meh. Yes the updated landscaping around it looks nice...and it has paint and operational things... The round stage looks weird and the quick serve window looks like anywhere USA.... It's a quick serve window.... Uninspired... but ok.... Maybe in person I will have a different opinion...
