Epcot visitors have noticed progress on the transformation of the Walt Disney World theme park recently. Behind the construction walls near the attraction’s entrance, the tops of transparent pylons are peeking over. They have the famed geometric Spaceship Earth ride as a backdrop.
They are part of the reimagining of Epcot’s main entrance fountain, Imagineer Zach Riddley wrote on his Instagram account.
“Our 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 a future of Epcot,” Riddley said. “These majestic pylons also draw your eye upward toward the sky and perfectly frame views of the iconic Spaceship Earth attraction.”
