Epcot has been going through so major renovations recently. The most noticeable being the removal of the Leave A Legacy Monoliths.
In early March, permits were filed for this removal. Walls around the monoliths were placed in May. Leave A Legacy will still be close by and available for viewing. It will be placed just outside of the Epcot entrance.
During this process, the entire west side of monoliths have been cleared. An open path has been made for easier guest entry. Although no walls have gone up, we can assume construction will begin in the removal of the east side of the monuments soon. Hopefully in time for guests enjoying the Food and Wine Festival.
This isn’t the only new changes being made to the Epcot entry way. We reported last month that all details of newness coming to Epcot will be announced at this year’s D23 Expo in Anaheim.
After all the monoliths have been removed, planters and greenery will take its place. These planters will create new, open, pathways for guests visiting Epcot. As we can see from the concept art that’s been floating around, the area could be a newly renovated fountain.
All updates will become more clear as we near the expo. As for now, guests do not seem to mind all of the open and available space.
Are you excited to see what changes are coming to Epcot next? Let us know in the comments!
