New Flags Introduced to EPCOT Entrance and NEW Future World Lighting to Debut TONIGHT!
Today was a VERY special morning at EPCOT. The Walt Disney Imagineering EPCOT project team held a VERY important flag raising ceremony.
The flags, as you can see from the image above feature six of EPCOT’s original icons across 12 new flagpoles in the area that flanks Spaceship Earth.
If these icons look familiar, that’s because they go back to the original design philosophy of the theme park.
Each of the icons represent the original pavilions and attractions of EPCOT in an updated palette that is inspired by the new EPCOT neighborhoods currently under construction.
We think its a marvelous representation of how EPCOT is coming full circle!
And if that wasn’t exciting enough, a color coordinated light ribbon around the entire rim of the plaza will be making it’s debut this evening! This is in conjunction to the already revealed fountain lighting. Add to this a new main entrance soundtrack and you’ve got a brand new EPCOT experience bringing energy and optimism to the park. The new guest entryway also features lush landscapes and flowing fountains!
