New D-Zone relaxation area coming to Epcot next week

Jun 26, 2015 in "EPCOT"

Posted: Friday June 26, 2015 9:13am EDT by WDWMAGIC Staff

The Innoventions West corridor near to Character Spot in Epcot's Future World will soon be home to a new relaxation area.

Known as a D-Zone, expect to see seating, electronic device charging stations, and a couple of food and drink carts starting early next week.

The corridor has always been popular with guests to cool-off, but lack of seating has left people sitting on the floor.

The D-Zone relaxation area concept began at Magic Kingdom with the introduction of the Fantasyland Tangled restroom area, and the big top area in Storybook Circus. The idea is for for people to have a space to cool down, charge the all-important devices, and to take a break from some of the hustle and bustle of the park.

So the secret cool spot is not the not so secret cool spot. Cool :cool:

I just skimmed through the thread, so I'm not 100% sure if this has been mentioned or asked before, but does anyone know if they've done anything about the horrible smell back there? The area seems nice, but I just can't stand the smell for more than a few minutes.

Yea, but it's nothing that me, a printer and three minutes can't fix. But... It could go one of two ways. Could make it say 35th Anniversary. Or, 10th anniversary of the 25th Anniversary. Already have tables and chair there too so could have made it an upcharge event. LOL

Are you insinuating that EPCOT is having a mid life crisis? :)

Well it turns 35 next year...

Damn! I was just looking at it during my last trip. Kicking what remains of Epcot while it's down.

I should point this out...Orlando Theme Park News announced on their recent update... The 25th Anniversary Timeline was recently removed in Innoventions West Hallway.....

Or if we were grading effort, theme, and design it would get a D...well D- at most...

In a weird way, the name is very appropriate. If there's an area that is no longer going to be used for any real purpose, it's essentially been... D(e)-Zoned.

What's the review of the chairs and tables? Are they of the crappy variety or are there Disney touches? They seem like, Walmart brand or Kirkland brand.
