There was direct access to the attractions in Future World almost always from 1982-2015. 2016 for the East building. That would be super easy to fix, and returning to the CommuniCore layout (or at least something that somewhat resembles it) would improve crowd flow immensely. Themed walkways...
Honest question, why do you feel both sides being torn down would be better than none? Future World as a whole was shaped around that plaza being the way it was. The new core messes up half of it rather than the entirety. What would you suppose be put on the East plot?
Really now? I think they’re a whole lot more interactive than any other fountain in the park. Can’t think of any others where you’re encouraged to play with the water, other than the actual splash pads.
We had a great one in the center of the park. We also had cool ones in Future World East, but those are all gone too. Guess if you can’t get some part of your body wet with it, it’s not viewed as good enough anymore.
You can still access the Seas normally. This is just needlessly tearing down Innoventions West and killing the symmetry of the central plaza to add in another water feature, which if you count all of Imagination's and the splash pads would be Future World's fourth.
I dunno, I think I would be perfectly fine if Moana's wet floor walkway gets canned. We have interactive fountains on that side of Future World already, and they've been a fan favorite for nearly four decades now.
