    Re: Innoventions

    Until Disney makes an official announcement, I shall regard anything like this as just a rumor.

    I heard that it might be held off until 60 but more CMs said 2 more years.
    Isn't the 60th in 2 year?

    Well, when Space went down for two years, I was working that morning at Space, we were told it would be down for an hour....that turned into 2 years before that hour was up. Most of us were sent home to wait to see where they would put us. I was one of the lucky ones who got to stay at the entrance and tell people it wasn't going to be operational for a while.

    It's easier for attractions to go to different areas, Innoventions CM's only work that location and aren't trained for anything else.

    Hopefully D23 will give some insight on Tomorrowland, and hopefully it will be without Marvel.

    I'm crossing my fingers for something that fits the Tomorrowland theme very well like an E-ticket level Iron Man dark ride.

    I doubt they are going to suddenly find any structural issues with Innoventions any time soon.

    How can anyone be sure until the building is inspected.

    It was refurbed for Innoventions. The building is really two structures in one. You've got the shell, which doesn't move, and the center part which rotates. Presumably, any construction of a new ride will involve the rotating floor being removed, then you're left with 15% of the building which is just a shell, and not at ground level which would make disabled access more difficult, as well as a waste of space. (It is this way because the mechanisms to move the floor are below the level of the walkways to get inside.)

    Hence the whole thing may well be demolished.

    I'm surprised nobody linked the Starcade work to this project.

    That was a decade and a half ago.

    America Sings opened summer 1974, just in time for the bicentennial, the Innoventions make over happened much more recently, in relative terms. Just saying that it got a thorough look through, refurbishment, at that point in time. Actually, it was gutted. 15 years isn't that long in terms of a building like that, and it obviously hasn't fallen into disuse with poor maintenance like the People mover track. Seriously doubt there is any structural issues, doesn't really matter as the center rotating portion will probably be toast, that just leaves the shell and walk-ways.

    It would be like suspecting that a house that got a top-to-bottom modern refurbishment 15 years ago was probably falling apart today if it was maintained by an owner.

    Interesting that the Wreck It Ralph stuff is being removed and work is proceeding on the Starcade area. If I'm not mistaken, Wreck It Ralph was a pretty popular movie, I'm sure most folks would be surprised to know that this attraction was removed after opening, what, 3-4 months ago!?

    Of course, everybody knows that the People Mover track once offered a view of the Starcade and that the same People mover passed through the Innoventions building . . .

    It is getting difficult to even guess what is going on with Innoventions with all the he said, she said rumors going around. Hopefully Disney will say something soon and put all this talk to rest.

    And doesn't it take a few years to R&D these attractions anyway? It's not like Iger had the fuel to greenlight a marvel attraction pre-Avengers so why would the imagineers have been working on a concept before then?
    Many Bothans died to bring you these fastpasses.
