EPCOT Innoventions West demolition - January 26 2021
Posted: Thursday January 28, 2021 9:18am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

After somewhat of a lull in the new year, demolition work is back underway on the former Innoventions West at EPCOT.

Crews are working throughout the structure preparing for its complete removal to make way for the Moana inspired gardens.

I wish they’d just plant some trees to at least offer a visual distraction. I know they are ok with backstage views from monorails and skyliners, but some foliage would really help. also there’s a GR lobby at international gateway, if enough people pop in there and voice displeasure it could bring some changes

My wife - who follows none of this - out of the blue asked my on the Skyliner on Thursday what they were building in the France pavilion that had that blank in themed blue back wall. It’s such poor show that She assumed it was still under construction.

I wonder how much that cost.

I just saw that with imagination. Found it odd because I could've sworn it showed the whole building. Didn't realize Soarin was gone too.

I really like how they did Pandora and AK!

We lost some of the hidden Storm Troops. Some still remain. Here's a full screen version of the online map...

Good point, they had been out of sync for a while.

They're very inconsistent with updates. For instance, the new Tomorrowland arch was on the map before the old one started to come down but it took them a long time to update the Liberty Square Market with the new layout.

Amazing how this map has been updated multiple times since Universe of Energy closed yet they're still keeping the pavilion looking the way it did in 2017. Even going as far as to update and enhance it's look on the map, yet still keeping the mirrored tiles and fountain and OG colors.

These updates feel more in-line with the new versions of the printed in-park maps (specifically, the maps for Epcot and DHS that feature a different orientation than the north/south locked orientation of the app map).

Yeah, but that actually looks good. Nothing looks like the perspective is wrong.

They completely redesigned just about every building at Hollywood Studios as well with a similar aesthetic. They were all given much more dimensional height and bolder colors. Please forgive this some what off-topic aside...

Looks like, needless updates for 1000 alex
