Changes continue at Epcot's Innoventions pavilions. Walt Disney World has opened a new corporate-sponsored, interactive-technology display that strips away the myth of the "garbage fairy" and has announced another exhibit that will help people to prepare for severe weather.

The "garbage fairy" myth is exposed through a hands-on exhibit in the east Innoventions pavilion called "Don't Waste It," sponsored by Waste Management Inc., the nation's largest waste-disposal company.

The weather-technology area, to be called "StormStruck: The Tale of Two Homes," will be developed by Disney and the Federal Alliance for Safe Homes, or FLASH, a nonprofit group formed by several for-profit companies including State Farm insurance. The exhibit, scheduled to open late this summer, will give visitors a feel for severe weather such as a hurricane. After they experience "the storm," they'll have an opportunity to learn about cutting-edge research related to weather and the latest recommendation for protecting homes.
