Rumor Is the End of Innoventions Near?

Green roof beer gardens, one on each building. More greenery. Potential lower cooling costs of the structure below. Premium up charge booze space with views.
Yep. Really unfortunate.

The festival lovers are partly to blame for what is coming. Who needs attractions in the former communicore/innoventions areas, when its only purpose is to provide a pathway from SSE to WS aka EatDrinkShopWhoNeedsStupidAttractionsVille.

Who's to blame is Disney for not properly maintaining and expanding Epcot for a couple decades, and eventually being able to get guests to conform to the idea that Epcot was made solely for seasonal events.

WDW guests got used to the idea that parks don't need more than 10 rides because Disney made it so

I understand & appreciate the symbolism of "different waters from all around the world" combining together into the fountain (that sentiment needed now more than ever), but remember that there are molecules of water from all of the world's bodies of water right there in that cup of water on your desk right now...

Wouldn't surprise me if when the Moana Water Journey is opened they resurrect that same dedication scheme.
....aaand there you go. Water "recycling!"

Hey Bob, any way we can get some more bars in Epcot that also have shade and an IP tie in? Oh an if you were required to present your Disney/Target Visa credit card to gain admittance that would be cool too. These things are truly what guests want so let’s give it to them!
Genius! We are cancelling the existing plans for Spaceship Earth so that we can put a Target themed bar inside. You will be able to meet Bullseye the dog, and the exterior of the building will be overhauled to feature a giant Target logo visible around the entire park.
I find it hard to believe people have been inspired by Starbucks, Character Spot, and Club Cool.
The revenue inspired me. That's why we are keeping them in World Celebration along with the new bars! @marni1971 you can put me on ignore now. ;)
I guess I'll just never understand the people who were inspired by a theme park building. 💁‍♂️
Then why are you here? :cool:

Apologies if this was posted already, but do we know what they're doing to Innoventions East? Meet and Greet space?

Thanks everyone for sharing photos. It looks like they are working on this in earnest so maybe the buildings will be demolished fairly quickly. What they should do first is wipe out the fountain of nations since it is the easiest thing to demo while they are gutting the buildings. Obviously the plumbing for the fountain will be pretty involved but if they got it all the way removed maybe they could put something in that area temporarily like lawn and bring down the walls so there would be better guest flow short term. It is also interesting to see what they have accomplished already with the fountain and the planter in front of Spaceship Earth. It looks like if they wanted they could have that whole walled in area reimagined in a month. If I am understanding the renderings it looks like the current walled area is going to be mostly planters, walkways and the reimagined fountain.

Is the new pavion supposed to be that tall? Tall enough to block the view of SE from the World Showcase?
asking for a friend...

The fountain is also linked to the small utilidoor system in that area that extends across into communicore/ Innoventions west building. There is likely a lot of work to do down there before demolition can begin without disrupting the balance of the system.
