First look at the new pavement you will find in Epcot

First look at the new pavement you will find in Epcot. Pavement is not something we pay attention to very much. Unless you are on at Walt Disney World, then you notice! Definitely, Disney does an awesome job with theming, especially when it makes its way to places we often think about, like the ground we walk on.

Think of the “brown” pavement in Liberty Square at Magic Kingdom. Also, the ground near Storybook Circus, where you can see the elephant tracks along with the cart tracks. Importantly, one of the best-themed resorts, Wilderness Lodge looks like wildlife walked through the wet cement as it was being poured. Included in this would also be the Leave a Legacy stones at Epcot or the bricks in front of Magic Kingdom.

Zach Riddley posted on Instagram about such things, you can see the whole post below. In it, he goes onto explain some of the new pathways we are used to walking on.

new pavement you will find in Epcot
From Zach Riddley – Disney Imagineer –

Continuing to look at the inspiration and design details of EPCOT, today I’m sharing a story about paving. It’s a surface you don’t often pay direct attention to, but the color and texture of the ground under your feet are a primary surface for storytelling. Cobblestones, brick, curbing, scored concrete, patterned terrazzo (like the new flooring coming to Club Cool and Creations Shop that I’ve shared previously) all work to immerse you in a believable place.

But we actually prefer you don’t notice the ground too much! It’s all part of the bigger composition of placemaking that makes each of our parks and neighborhoods special.

For EPCOT we set out to find new paving materials to define this texture for World Celebration. We wanted warm grays in a range of hues to complement the silvers and off-whites of Spaceship Earth and many of our new World Celebration facades. Here you can see some of the material and samples the team evaluates when thinking about scale tone, reflectivity, and overall colors.

Funny how something as simple as pavement can be so important to achieving an environment that just “feels right.”
