Recently, we reported on the new pillars that were placed in front of Spaceship Earth. We also shared details about the new display for the Leave a Legacy photos. Now, EPCOT has added some beautiful flags — each one themed to a different area of the park!

According to Imagineer Zach Ridley on Instagram, the flags were added today. He wrote:

Today our @WaltDisneyImagineering EPCOT project team raised flags featuring six original EPCOT icons on 12 new flag poles flanking Spaceship Earth as we celebrate finishing touches at the entrance plaza. these icons go back to the original design philosophy of the park and represent pavilions and attractions in a vibrant new palette that is inspired by the new EPCOT neighborhoods.

In addition to the flags, a color coordinated light ribbon around the entire rim of the plaza is debuting tonight in connection with our recently revealed fountain lighting and a new main entrance soundtrack brings energy and optimism to the revitalized architecture, lush landscape and flowing fountains of the re-imagined guest entry experience.

While we still have some small details to button up in this area, I think we can say the reimagined entrance plazapossibility found within each other and the world.

Stay tuned for more posts on these changes!

We are excited for the further beautification of EPCOT, and cannot wait to see more in the future!

More Spaceship Earth Updates

Spaceship Earth will also be receiving a new lighting package for the 50th Anniversary, truly transforming the entrance to EPCOT even further!

Although the original plans for a reimagining of Spaceship Earth were suspended amid the COVID-19 pandemic, this permanent new lighting scheme is a treat for Walt Disney World Resort Guests!
