EPCOT Future World West and East demolition - December 3 2020
Posted: Friday December 4, 2020 9:20am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

Large sections of the exterior walls of the former Innoventions West have been removed showing a completely gutted interior.

With the south west section already removed, we expect this north west section to also be totally demolished to make way for the Moana-themed garden area.

Over on the east side, all that remains is the skeleton of the buildings, with the interior fully removed.

These buildings will remain stranding, and will contain retail, and food & beverage locations.

Almost like a couple of nitwits had not clue what they were doing and started throwing “ideas” at it like noodles against the wall? The greatest/most unique park ever created and now retired to history

All this talk about the naming conventions, yet no one batted an eye when New Orleans Square broke that mold at Disneyland in the 60s. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

At least there is some demarcation between World Celebration and World Discovery with the former CommuniCore/Innoventions East/Creations Shop/whatever we are calling that building now.

It’s not just when you’re in the lands. In the best designed parks if you were to look at an unlabeled map you could figure out general sense where one land starts and another ends. There was a spatial organization to the lands and parks that contributed to the sense of place and immersion.

Don’t forget the bathrooms are also color coded in case you’re lost. Lol

It just feels weird to split it into three areas without some demarcation noting which of those areas you're in (other than the trash can colors). In most other parks it's apparent which "Land" you're in, I'm not sure people are going to have the same reaction going between these three new ones as they would going between Future World/World Showcase where it's apparent you're entering a different area.

Sorry… “Dragging their feet deliberately during construction and then letting things sit once finished”
