As you’re probably aware EPCOT is in the midst of a pretty major transformation.
The transformation includes the reworking of much of Future World, some enhancements around World Showcase, and the reimagining of the EPCOT Main Entrance. We’re super excited to see what the design of these areas will look like and now, thanks to a Walt Disney Imagineer, we have a sneak peek of the brand-new Main Entrance Fountain!
Thanks to Disney World Imagineer and Site Portfolio Executive Zach Riddley, we’re taking a look at the brand-new pylons that went in LAST NIGHT for the main entrance fountain. Holy moly! Those are sooo pretty.
Riddley explained that the design team “took special interest in looking back to the original geometry for inspiration and infusing new features with a little bit of added magic to bridge the past, present and future of EPCOT.” We can totally see these influences in the design. In our opinion, the pylons are a pretty gorgeous addition to the main entrance area.
Another purpose of the pylons is to draw the eye upward and frame Spaceship Earth. These pics definitely make it look like they’re doing their job. The best part of this news? Riddley noted that the completed look for the fountain will be revealed later this year! Eek!
We’re keeping a close eye on alllll the updates to development in EPCOT so stay tuned to DFB to know about all of the news and changes!
