The ticket booths located just outside the park’s entrance recently received a fresh coat of paint, the color palette of which harkens back to what Riddley referred to as “a vibrancy and identity that is unique to EPCOT.”

Valiquette confirmed that the Leave a Legacy monoliths are still on track to be installed just outside the park’s entrance. It had been a while since we’d heard an update on the monoliths, so to hear confirmation was a great thing.

Riddley announced that Spaceship Earth and the new fountain pylons coming to the attraction’s forecourt will be receiving a new lighting package that will feature custom programming. The fountain will be completed by the end of 2020.
