Get A Look At Epcot’s New Entrance Fountain
We have a special surprise for you this morning straight out of EPCOT! If you’re lucky enough to be visiting the park this week then you’ll be able to take a first look at the magnificent new fountain area at EPCOT!
That’s right! Overnight the progress walls have been removed at the entrance plaza and guests can check out this major milestone in EPCOT’s epic transformation.
There is still more work to be done to this new area but with the bulk of the work done its time of a magical unveiling! This area features new planters, pathways, lush landscaping and a brand new color palette. The colors here are representative of each of the four new neighborhoods Disney is recreating inside the parks: World Celebration, World Discovery, World Nature and World Showcase!
As sight to behold, head over to the front of Spaceship Earth where you’ll now see a reimagined fountain. The designs team drew its inspiration from the original area that welcomed guests when EPCOT first opened back in 1982.
At the very center of the fountain is a unique liquid-cooled lighting fixture that will compliment the fountain’s changing colors and will coordinate with a bran new lighting system coming soon to Spaceship Earth!
At the center you’ll also find acrylic pylons. Each of these beauties stands over 16 feet tall and features EPCOT’s logo. The timeless design and vertical presence is designed to draw your eye upwards toward the sky perfectly framing Spaceship Earth in the process.
The fountain takes center stage at the new entrance plaza. The greenery and use of water are designed to celebrate the harmony between humanity and nature. It seems fitting for a park designed to inspire optimism that the transformation itself focuses on the magic of possibility.
This is a HUGE step forward when it comes to EPCOT’s incredible transformation and a wonderful early Christmas gift for Disney World fans!
