Seems to me they're testing color schemes...
Please go with the black/white/silver.
The area needed an update, now if they would only do the same to the TTC...
This will be happening for the next three months. It will be a variety of colors not just one anymore.
Atleast they are doing with the out-dated look.
Finished result obviously unseen, but a variety of colors sounds as if it would make the place look tacky rather than futuristic.
Paint store have a sale on one-off colors in the bargain bin or something?
Please say you mean for testing purposes?
Tacky indeed. Innoventions and FW need to shed that ugly nineties overlay, instead of making it even worse yet.
I guess the old "be careful what you ask for" needs to be shoved in our faces right about here, no? Apparently they heard our cries for updating Epcot.
We get new paint to ride and experience. I bet you can book your matching color scheme 60 days out on their website!
Well, some people do say Epcot is boring and watching paint dry is more exciting.. So TDO is giving them what they want, to watch paint dry... Problem is, you cannot watch the paint dry unless you book it 60 days in advance, and by then, the paint will already be dry...
Here's from my trip in October...look how blah the paint job looked.
The paint job reflects it's FW character: empty and abandoned. Dull, dry, ghost town.
Yes. The entire EPCOT parklike hub has been replaced the way they have and are now replacing the MK park-lke hub.
The CC/Innoventions buildings should be subdued colours, set in a park-like plaza, with water and fountains and trees. Then their subdued colours and repetitive facades become elegance. On their own, having to carry an otherwise empty plaza, the restraint and repetition of the architecture turns into boring. The plaza is too large, the architecture too restraint. So this then has to be remedied. But each subsequent attempt to remedy that boring look then only adds clutter and tackiness, from those trianges to cutting the Innoventions buildings in half to those swirly things to current (possible?) polychrome paintjobs.
Last I was there, the tops of some of the buildings looked dirty and like they have years of paint buildup/decay on them...some fresh paint could be good. Though, I'd prefer to see the purple above NOT be put in the color scheme. I'd go with Silver/black/white...
Maybe they should think like "classic NASA" when they pick paint out...
the navy isnt so bad
Hey... I am for any paint color than what is there. The peach is just so drab and boring. I kinda like the look of multiple colors, but only if they change the neon to an LED that changes colors. That would make it look cool at night.
While I am on that subject, can anyone tell me why they don't do the color changing LEDs on SSE like Cindys house? That big ol ball changing colors would rock!
The lights that light up the palm trees underneath spaceship earth can and do change colors.... It's a really easy thing to do it's just a matter of if they want to spend the money on buying new lights to light up the ball.... Which they don't
Eh, it's an easy thing to just light up Spaceship Earth with bright color which would come from LEDs, maybe not so easy to keep the current beauty and grandeur. The current lighting package for SE involves high powered lights with colored gels that produce subtle, tasteful color. To replicate this, a lot of testing and experimenting would need to be done. LED light, while gorgeous, is much different from tungsten, halogen, and xenon. SE would look horrible lit up like the castle - it needs class and subtlety, not whimsy and vivid color. An LED lighting package is of course possible, the work just needs to be done in order to hone down the details of it. If Disney wants help, I'm open!
Those "test colors" (if thats what they are) appear very similar to the ones used for the new Fountain View Starbucks. I wouldn't be opposed to Innoventions adopting it.
Above pics from
The "FOUNTAIN VIEW" part looks way too Tomorrowland '94. I love Tomorrowland '94, but not in FW.
Agreed. That font is no good there. A shame they can't/don't apply the classic EPCOT Center font to big signage like this in Future World.
