PHOTOS: Liquid Layer Interactive Fountain Permanently Closed and Paved Over in EPCOT

Though the Liquid Layer Interactive Fountain near Mission: SPACE reopened in June, EPCOT’s other Liquid Layer has remained closed and surrounded by construction walls for a year. Though the fate of the play area has been unclear, it now appears to be permanently closed.


From the Monorail, we could see fresh pavement on the ground where the soft Liquid Layer surface used to be.


This Liquid Layer was located on the walkway between Future World and World Showcase. It’s unknown what—if anything—will be done with the space now that the fountains have been removed.

Shortly after completing the paving, construction walls were removed allowing guests access to the additional flat space.

  1. Looks like a prime area for a merchandising booth because, you know, there aren’t already enough of those :/

  2. I think that this is a good idea. Fountains are expensive to operate and don’t generate additional revenue. People who are hot and in need of a cooldown will now purchase refreshments.

  3. Why in the hell would you remove the part that all kids have enjoyed since the place opened? Add dont subtract !leave epcot as is and just add to it !!!!!
