Aerial photos reveal the continuing demolition of Innoventions West as EPCOT continues its transformation at Walt Disney World! Back late last year, demolition and construction work started in EPCOT, preparing the park for its biggest expansion in history! Now from aerial photos we see how this transformation is taking place, thanks to Twitter account Bioreconstruct and The Disney Pilot on Instagram!
Steadily over the last couple of months, we have seen the complete demolition of Innoventions West to make way for the four new lands- Showcase, Celebration, Discovery and Nature. However, it definitely takes a while to get used to the change, particularly when Innoventions West has been around for over a decade! As you can see from Bioreconstruct on Twitter, see tweet below, the vast amount of space the demolition has left!
Therefore, after the trusses are removed, the entire Innoventions West is gone! Innoventions West, which used to house the Character Spot in EPCOT, alongside Club Cool (and the love/hate Beverly drink) as well as Fountain View, will be transformed into Moana- Journey of Water and more of the World Celebration neighborhood!
From the Instagram post by The Disney Pilot above, you can also see the continuing construction on the new, highly anticipated Guardians of the Galaxy attraction! The construction update seems to be the new blue panels added to the top of the roof! Whilst it’s very hard to see from the aerial photo, it seems construction is also speeding along for this attraction as the roof of the attraction is completely different from when we saw it back in January!
In comparison to Innoventions West, Innoventions East has new materials being added rather than taken away! As previously reported, Innoventions East received new windows for the main EPCOT gift shop redo!
We look forward to seeing the finished EPCOT!
