New EPCOT Fountain Pylons Damaged After Installation

in Epcot, Walt Disney World

During the 2019 D23 Expo, Bob Chapek and Zach Riddley announced several big projects coming to EPCOT.

One of these changes is that EPCOT is debuting three brand new lands – replacing what is now known as Future World. The purpose of these three new lands is so that all of EPCOT will be a unity of four neighborhoods that speak to each important aspect of the world. World Showcase, which has already been apart of this park, will be joined by World Celebration, World Nature and World Discovery. (You can read more about these changes here).

And as the parks had to temporarily close due to the current global pandemic, the construction on the EPCOT overhaul also had temporarily pause. The good news is it wasn’t long ago that construction was able to resume and EPCOT has already completed some of its projects — including the new EPCOT prism pylons!

In fact, one week ago, Walt Disney World Site Portfolio Executive and Imagineer Zach Riddley shared a photo of EPCOT pylon construction progress on his official social media accounts. You can see the Instagram post below.

But just one week after the pylons were put up, Guests are now noticing some scratches on the new prism pylons. You can see these scratches yourself in the Instagram posts below.

If you look to the right of the photo below, you can see one of the prism pylons is showing minor damage as it was scratched in the same spot where the brace was holding it in place.
