So if the Table Top is moved to Phase II, then there will basically be nothing between Spaceship Earth and the Showcase Lagoon...Just dead space and a water play area...
That’s assuming a demo of Innoventions still happens. You could still do a lot with existing building that would serve similar needs like conventions/private events; the raison d’être for this project.

You mean plenty of room for more festival food offerings! Temporarily of course. For a few years. Or decades.

Reading the guys tweets, he's not a great source. If you want to believe him the Matterhorn will become Frozen themed.
Probably hoping OrSen runs with the rumor so that all other social media sites can link to it. If it is actually not phase 1 it is because it was cancelled. IMO.

PS- Epcot desperately needs an on stage events facility that is permanent and modern. Communicore is anything but modern. That style exists in every office park built in America since 2000.

It’s still not too late to save it. There has been no damage to the structure itself, only some exterior concrete. That being said, it most obviously won’t be, and we’ll cross the point of no return soon enough.
Fortunately there's nothing worth preserving. Especially this wing.

No
why could they not have used one of the Communicore Buildings for that... They had all this permanent building space just sitting there...
This generation of Imagineers seem to think of single attractions/projects and not what the impact to the park as a whole will be, which is why we are getting a disjointed expensive mess of a park. The naming of the "neighborhoods" are smoke and mirrors.

While admittedly it needs updating (and a real paint job), these are the lines I miss. They could totally fix things up from here.
The architecture was serious, forward thinking and beautiful. It is a real loss... Especially if the Table Top becomes a Phase II project... that will take decades for them to finish...and we will have an empty football field as you main entrance point... It's all very sad.

It's not empty, it'll be known as World Tailgate. You can participate in all your favorite pre-game activities such as heckle the visiting team's fans, keg stands, cornhole, loud music, getting into fights, and of course everyones favorite...public urination!

I'm of course talking about the real football. American football. The sport that's played all around the world by everyone but mostly America. 🤣

*I'm a hockey person before anyone asks. And those 4 years in marching band didn't help me learn football at all. I only knew to start conducting when the ball was moving and to stop when it stopped.*
