PHOTOS - Demolition gets underway on the core of Communicore West at Epcot

Epcot Future World West Demolition and Construction Walls - December 2019
Posted: Tuesday November 26, 2019 10:58am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

Demolition at the center of Epcot has now reached the core of Communicore West.

The Fountain View building, most recently home to Starbucks, has been completely removed, exposing the shell of the Character Spot interior.

At the rear of the building, more walls are up ahead of continued demolition work.

The conclusion of Food and Wine Festival allows a widening of the demolition area and more construction walls.

Elsewhere in Future World West, machinery is moving earth between The Land and Imagination.

Oh wowโ€ฆ I was just looking at this literally the other day. Brought a friend over to read the words so he could better understand what the real EPCOT Center once stood for. So much more the beer and food festivals back thenโ€ฆ -

Indeed! I've happened to obtain the new wording: "To all who come to this place of Synergy, Activations and misplaced IP: Welcome EPCOT is inspired by Walt Disney Studios' creative vision. Here, IP is celebrated through relevancy, timeless activations, and malfunctioning lighting that promises exciting and overcrowded festivals for all. May EPCOT pander, irritate, and above all, instill a new sense of belief and pride in personkind's ability to turbocharge Disney+ subscriptions that offers hope to shareholders everywhere."

Hopefully they make the plaque say EPCOT Center on the first line again (or EPCOT in all caps at the bare minimum). Surprised they never rededicated the park, maybe they realized that would look bad with how little major change actually happened in the grand scheme of things.

Perhaps they're rewriting it to become more timeless, more relevant, and more Disney?

Dedication plaque has been removed, looks like itโ€™s finally getting replaced soon to bring it in line with all the new signage.
