As we previously reported, Epcot is getting a facelift at the main entrance to the park. With the facelift comes the removal of the Leave a Legacy Monoliths located near Spaceship Earth.
The Leave a Legacy Monoliths were first introduced by the Walt Disney Imagineers as a part of a tribute to the Epcot 2000 Commemorative Program. The monoliths are both a work of art and a family album allowing guests to mark their moment in time. Guests can mark their moment on a one-inch square digital photograph etched on a commemorative metallic tile mounted onto the monoliths.
Sadly, these timeless Leave a Legacy Monoliths will soon be removed during the facelift in phases. Starting overnight Sunday, May 19, 2019, the monoliths will be removed on the Westside. Walls will be surrounding these giant 3 to 19-foot tall monuments as they begin the removal process.
The walls surrounding the construction will remain in place throughout the duration of the west side construction throughout the Summer of 2019.
Once the West side has completed the removal process, the walls surrounding the monuments will then move to the East side to continue the process of the removal of the Leave a Legacy Monoliths.
However, once the removal is completed guests will still have to wait until the year 2020 before Disney reveals the new location for these massive structures. But good news! Before installing the Leave a Legacy Monoliths in their new undisclosed location, the monoliths will get a facelift of their own with refreshed photos and will include a new wayfinding system for guests to locate their pictures.
Do you have an idea of where you think Disney will relocate the monoliths to?
