EPCOT Innoventions West demolition - February 9 2021

The demo of Innovations West is moving a little quicker this month as crews continue to remove the roof from the structure.

The majority of the roof is now gone, leaving mostly vertical uprights and crossbeams.

This area will eventually be home to the Moana inspired water gardens.

This just makes me sad. I didn't understand originally, I don't understand now. How can one group of people somehow make the entrance "more EPCOT" whilst making the bit beyond it "something else" (and a bit of a mess really)? :(

^^^Imagineering may need penicillin to clear this up.

I had that once... some Benadryl cleared it right up!

They call that the “more Disney” feeling.

I just wish "interesting" had a more positive feel to it instead of the opposite.

The next couple of years is going to be very, very interesting. Especially once HarmonioUS finally opens.

and that makes me sadder than anything.

I’ve given up

Not to worry. There will be ample more opportunities once new construction begins ;)

Only a few more pictures until Martin runs out of repeating "Idiots" once the demolition is complete.

Historically accurate depiction of one of Future World's forebears. I do believe Thag intended to built a cave system here rather than a theme park, but he met his premature end at the hand, well tail, of a stegosaur.

Agree. I wish they were brave enough to just rename the park and move on. It isn't even the EPCOT Walt wanted to build and the "World's Fair" concept that they built instead was incredible, but they have fully moved away from that concept and now we're left with an amusement park with no mission/vision tied to a name that doesn't even make sense anymore. If it wasn't such a recognizable name/logo with Spaceship Earth I think they'd be more willing to change it. Now, it's just a continuing sad reminder of what it once was. And to bastardize the park's beautiful symmetry - both in the removal of the west buildings and now the intentionally obnoxious off center Stargate is just an insult to the original Imagineers who built the previously miraculous park. (Oh, and I forgot to count down to GrandCanyonConcourse's predictable petulant child frownie face....3...2....1....)

I feel like epcot will always be a park that we do not deserve, and the majority of guests will never understand or appreciate.
