Well, yes. But I highly doubt the installation could be done overnight, and who would want to visit the park with no lagoon?! It's one thing to drain the river where Tom Sawyer Island is in MK; that's only one small area. But the WS lagoon is a major part of Epcot. It would be positively ugly if drained.

Not exactly that minor as it isn't just a lake it also has connection to the hotels and that waterway now...unless they have some large barricade to separate the entire waterway...and also where would they drain the water to?

What... they still have Illuminations??? Damn, i must have missed it. I was just at Epcot this week... stuck around till 9:30... saw a few fireworks and a couple fireblasts... but i didn't see anything that resembles an actual Illuminations show. Guess i'll try again next year.
