An unfortunate incident caused an entire Epcot Pavilion to close unexpectedly. We are unsure when it will reopen.
It’s not uncommon for various attractions to close during any given day at Disney World. For example, Expedition Everest has been closed on and off for multiple days. Part of the Japan Pavilion is currently closed for refurbishment. You can read that story right here.
This can certainly cause wait times to increase if an attraction is operating at half capacity or at other attractions if a ride is entirely closed. Not to mention, it can be disappointing for Guests who have spent months planning their vacations only to get there and not be able to ride what they were hoping to.
Unfortunately, an entire pavilion is closed right now at Epcot.
The Imagination! Pavilion is home to Journey into Imagination with Figment, the ImageWorks Lab, the Disney and Pixar Short Film Festival, the Mickey Mouse meet and greet, and the Jumping Fountains. It’s a rather small pavilion when you consider how big the ones in the World Showcase are.
Nevertheless, this pavilion is a must-do for those who love Disney nostalgia or want to meet Mickey. Unfortunately, this area is completely closed right now.
There is a broken pipe on the top of the building inside the Imagination! Pavilion, and a giant continuing gush of water is spraying for all to see.
The water continues down the gutter and onto the ground. Unfortunately, it appears as if there is water inside the building because in the video in the tweeted reply you can see water gushing out of the orange building. Check out the video below:
As of writing, both the Disney and Pixar Short Film Festival and the Journey into Imagination with Figment attractions are both closed. We hope Disney can stop this water from causing too much damage.
