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.

I think @Haymarket2008 was referring to the "different entrance" and "signage covered up" parts, not the "Is that why" part.

I apologize. I do think I remember somebody saying that SSE’s signage was going to be updated but I can’t remember who said it or where I saw it. It could just be a figment of my imagination, too.

Haymarket20081 day ago had stated it as if it was a fact lol

I don’t know if that is what is happening. It was pure speculation on my part.

Oh really?? I had no idea that’s currently happening.

Is that why SSE is currently using a different entrance and the signage is covered up?

vikescaper2 days ago

I thought I saw somewhere that SSE was going to get a new sign. Maybe that’s the “c” in space?

Could VERY well be the case. Makes sense to have them pre-made. The image at the bottom right looks like the 50th anniversary banners found throughout the parks.

Here I go overanalyzing things again. This was Zach's Instagram Story post today. This is very clearly not at EPCOT, as the bottom item literally has what seems to be paint codes written on it. Also, look to the bottom left, thats another letter next to this C. I think this is the CommuniCore Hall marquee.

I seriously doubt the walls are going to move by then.

Our next trip is December 2022. Is there any chance that any of the walls are pushed back at that point? Or are they just going to do it all at once and then remove all the walls at the same time instead of doing it in sections?
