CommuniCore | Extinct Disney World Attractions

CommuniCore was a pavilion located in Epcot at Walt Disney World that opened with the park in 1982. The pavilion was divided into two sections: CommuniCore East and CommuniCore West. It was designed to showcase emerging technologies and innovations, as well as provide information and education on a variety of topics.

CommuniCore featured a range of interactive exhibits and activities, including hands-on computer games, interactive displays, and multimedia presentations. Some of the exhibits focused on themes such as transportation, energy, communication, and the environment.

In 1994, CommuniCore was replaced by Innoventions, which continued to showcase new technologies and innovations. Innoventions featured exhibits such as virtual reality simulations, video games, and interactive experiences that allowed guests to learn about new products and technologies.

Innoventions closed in 2015 and the space was eventually replaced by the Epcot Character Spot and other attractions. However, the legacy of CommuniCore can still be seen in the continued emphasis on technology and innovation in Epcot and the Disney parks as a whole.

I am founder and editor of DisneyNews.us. My passion for all things Disney goes pretty far back to my first trip to Walt Disney World in the mid-80's. I have since returned to the magical place more than 20 times. I started this site when I came to the realization that I spent a significant portion of my day reading articles about Disney and watching Disney content with my 8-year old, so it made sense that I would start sharing some of what I read and see and building a little community around it. Other interests include 80's nostalgia, vintage toys, video games, LEGO, Star Wars and tech gadgets. Other site isDMR.
