Jan 31: CommuniCore's End

On this day in 1994, Epcot's CommuniCore East and West both closed. Located in two semi-circle buildings to the east and west of Spaceship Earth, CommuniCore featured science and technology exhibits.
Designed to tbe the central hub of the park, this area was often referred to as "Future World's Global Main Street." The pavilions (opened since Epcot's 1982 debut) presented such attractions over the years as FutureCom, Phraser, Chip Cruiser, Epcot Outreach, Expo Robotics, Compute-A-Coaster, Backstage Magic, and the Astuter Computer Revue.
In an effort to keep Epcot updated, CommuniCore was closed and redesigned into Innoventions (which opened in July 1994).
