With the EPCOT entrance overhaul project nearly complete, we decided to check in on the portion of the project taking place outside the gates. Back in early 2019, Disney announced that they would be removing the Leave a Legacy monoliths. Here’s a look at the monoliths the night before construction walls went up.
Then, on May 20th, construction walls were erected around the west side of the EPCOT entrance plaza to remove the monoliths.
Eventually, all of the monoliths were removed along with the Leave a Legacy photo plaques. That said, Disney promised that the photos would be moving to “a beautiful setting just outside the park’s gateway”.
While this might look like perimeter fencing, there is actually different from the security perimeter, which is further back.
It’s only once we look at the reverse of the wall that we realize that this has the potential to be a structure whereby the Leave a Legacy photos will be displayed.
On the east side of the entrance plaza, there is much more real estate to mount Leave a Legacy photos.
Whether or not this will live up to the billing of “a beautiful setting” or not remains to be seen, but it looks like Disney is close to completing the structural aspect of the project.
