Right now is the final day of operation for a number of Epcot sections together with: The Fountain View, Membership Cool, the Fountain of Nations, Innoventions East, and Artwork of Disney.
Formally they shut tomorrow, September 8, however as we speak is the final day of operation for these areas.
PNP’s Lance and Lauren took a tour of the locations closing as we speak if you need to see them one final time! Thanks each!
The Character Spot can also be closing however the characters will nonetheless be briefly relocated to one other areas.
Mickey Mouse is shifting right into a location within the Creativeness Pavilion quickly, however till then he and Goofy will likely be in Innoventions West. Minnie Mouse will transfer to the World Showcase Gazebo. Winnie the Pooh will likely be at the UK pavilion and Daisy Duck will go to the American Journey.
It can shut and Disney indicated that there will likely be a short lived location for it this fall. I hope so. It’s one in every of my youngsters favourite locations to cease.
It can even be given a brand new location in a merchanise space at a later date. So don’t fear the sticky flooring and, hopefully, Beverly will likely be again!
Artwork of Disney
I preferred stopping in right here now and again. Don’t fear artwork followers it would come again later at Heritage Manor in The America Pavilion.
Wow! I really feel prefer it’s the tip of an period.
I began going to Epcot inside a yr of it’s opening. I keep in mind when it was CommuniCore after which it turned Innoventions. For years it was busy, however over time it turned much less and fewer of a draw for individuals. At present there have been solely two sights left in Innoventions East: Colortopia and Nanooze Break. I finished in at Colortopia once I was there a few months in the past and hardly anybody was there. It’s undoubtedly time for it to go away, it’s simply onerous.
Fountain of Nations
One other coronary heart breaker for me. The Fountain of Nations is closing after being there for the reason that park opened. 29 nations participated within the opening ceremony by bringing water from their international locations and pouring it into the fountain. I simply can’t think about Epcot with out it or the enduring backbone. I’m excited to see the way it all seems and perceive why it desperately wants updating. Epcot getting consideration was one thing I actually needed, however it’s nonetheless actually unhappy to me. Ought to have grabbed some tissues earlier than writing this text.
The development partitions will likely be going up tomorrow night. Goodbye to the previous Epcot of 1982 and howdy to the brand new that’s coming. I hope it’s superb, however proper now I really feel a bit unhappy, and previous, however largely unhappy.
What do you assume? Remark and tell us!
