WDWNT Reporter Brandon Struve made a quick stop at Epcot last night and has a number of newsworthy photos to share with us:

An old railing still in place around the Fountain of Nations

Walls up around the fountain at another point

Brand new railings in the very front of the fountain

The large metal signs and poles in this area have been removed

Walt Disney World Epcot Future World Innoventions 1.JPG

Here is a picture of what the area looked like before

Here is the after photo :)

This is another small piece of the huge place-making project taking place in Future World central

Paving on the blue side of Innoventions is still underway

Inside Innoventions, the large road-signs are gone and these new signs are in place

The timeline of Disney & Technology history is gone


Here is a photo of the seating area taken in September 2008 (photo by Tom Corless)

A new safe kids exhibit is up at the exit of Test Track

The exhibit somehow uses an Etch-A-Sketch to show how to properly use a car seat

Almost all of the preparation for the Food and Wine Festival around World Showcase is complete

The “La Cava Del Tequila” tequila bar is now actually open in the Mexico pavilion

New World Showcase t-shirts are available at each pavilion

Norway also has a Maelstrom attraction shirt

A look at the now very dark Innoventions plaza

These new Innoventions-themed windows have been in place for over a year now

Rumors indicate that the canopies over Pin Central may be removed any day now
