If the France pavilion in EPCOT didn’t feel empty and barren with the removal of six out of the ten trees that typically line the fountain, it sure does now. Today we noticed that the remaining four trees have also been removed.
Last week we saw that the first six trees had been removed and the spot where they were previously planted had been filled in with concrete. The same is true for the final four.
EPCOT’s France pavilion is undergoing a long string of changes as it expands to welcome Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure, La Crêperie de Paris, and a new Beauty and the Beast Sing-along. The removal of these trees seems to be related to all the other work to improve the pavilion.
The gardens to the right side of the pavilion remain intact for now, though they sit directly in the path of the start of the new walkway to Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure and La Crêperie.
What do you think will become of the gardens and this area as a whole as the pavilion sees a total makeover? We will keep you up to date on any changes as they come.
