EPCOT is undergoing a major overhaul, which includes a complete reimagining of Future World, as well as construction on a few different attractions.

In case you missed it, during the 2019 D23 Expo, Bob Chapek, now the CEO of The Walt Disney Company, and Zach Riddley of Walt Disney Imagineering, announced several big projects coming to EPCOT — Some of which we have already seen and some of which are coming soon.

We’ve already seen the debut of EPCOT’s new fountain, the new pylons, the new flags at the entrance of the theme park, an inside look at the new France pavilion expansion, and now we are seeing a new color-coordinated light ribbon and new main entrance music!

Zach Riddley shared this post (below) earlier today to announce the new flags at EPCOT’s entrance. Within his caption, Riddley also shared information about a new color-coordinated light ribbon and a new main entrance soundtrack loop:

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 fountain of the re-imagined guest entry experience.

We were in the theme park when both of these new elements debuted and wanted to share a first look with you all!

New Color-Coordinated Light Ribbon

We were at EPCOT today for the first day of Flower and Garden and were able to get a first glimpse of the gorgeous new lighting, which currently shines at the entrance of the theme park near the new flags and Spaceship Earth.
