Well, it’s happening. The Fountain of Nations demolition is now underway at Epcot and we recently visited to get an up-close look at the work taking place.
Here at BlogMickey.com, we’ve been able to provide news and photo updates throughout the beginning months of the Epcot overhaul project, including the news of the closure of the Fountain of Nations back in July.
First, let’s take a look from the monorail loop, which is where we get our first glimpse of the demolition work taking place. As you can see, the water jets are still in place, but the stage that use to sit in front of the Fountain of Nations is gone.
It’s from this final angle from the monorail that we can see some of the rubble of the Fountain of Nations.
After riding the monorail and getting some glimpses of the demolition, we decided to get a closer look to see the full scope of the project. As you can see in the photos below, not only has the Fountain View stage been completely demolished, but so has a portion of the Fountain of Nations itself.
As you might recall, this isn’t the only demolition slated for Future World. As a matter of fact, we expect the entire west side of Innoventions to be demolished to make way for the Journey of Water – Inspired by Moana attraction (FULL DETAILS) as well as the World Celebration Festival Center (FULL DETAILS).
While Disney has put up a lot of (colorful) construction walls around the Future World construction zones, there will still be plenty of demolition and, eventually, new construction to cover. As always, stick with us here at BlogMickey.com as we continue to bring you the latest photos and news from the Epcot overhaul project and much more from around the Disney Parks!
