Construction work on EPCOT’s overhaul is still underway, but it seems like each week we get some additional details or visual advancements in the process. Thanks in part to Imagineer Zach Riddley (@thezachriddley on IG), we have gotten our first official look at a major milestone in the Park’s refurbishments.
Riddley posted several pictures on Instagram (later re-posted by Disney Parks Blog) showcasing a portion of the new fountain that will sit at EPCOT’s entrance. Riddley added this caption to the posts:
“I’m excited to share a first look at the pylons we installed last night as we continue to reimagine the EPCOT main entrance fountain, which has anchored this area since the park opened in 1982. 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 and future of EPCOT . These majestic pylons also draw your eye upward toward the sky and perfectly frame views of the iconic Spaceship Earth attraction. I can’t wait to reveal the completed look for this fountain later this year!”
The fountain will feature large prisms that will be adorned with EPCOT’s original logo near the top. It appears the fountain will be completed later this year!
