EPCOT Center becoming a theme park rather than a functional city may have been quite different than Walt Disney had envisioned but there were some parts of his vision that were maintained. CommuniCore and its successor, Innoventions, celebrated advancing technologies and even gave visitors a chance to interact with upcoming technologies. Located in the heart of Future World, it functioned like a family friendly exhibition hall as well as a gateway to the pavilions surrounding it. Join me today as we enter into Epcot’s most diverse pavilion.
Epcot’s Main Hub
While the CommuniCore pavilion was mainly focused in two twin structures behind Spaceship Earth, they encapsulated the main thoroughfare of EPCOT Center. While Disneyland and the Magic Kingdom used a similar circular hub in front of their castles, EPCOT used its main hub as another, more diverse “land.”
