Progress is continuing on the Epcot main entrance area, with the eastern side now open.

Walls are now up on the western side as work begins on installing the new planters and concrete.

When complete, the area will look like the concept below.

The first photo shows in the tweet that the Side LEDS are covered in a yellow phosphor based gel. Just looking at this, the side lights, I would be surprised to see as RGB as there isn't even anything indicating RGBW as it would be a half and half. But the lens gives me the impression that they are using a Cree/Luxeon Star style light on the sides. To Surmise, I fully believe the sides are Cool White LEDS only, and the center is RGBW in cool white, unless it's a 2 package deal thats running Bicolor LEDs with the RGBLEDs.

I think of this scene whenever Disney mentions beacons lighting up and whenever Oct 1st rolls around.

Yes as far as I know they are all RGB.

I believe the whole SSE is RGB?

Shame the sides are only cool while LED and not RGB but alas.

If this is what they have in mind, and the LEDs aren't on all the time, I could actually grow to really love this.

This will never get old for me. Ever. (ETA: I didn't edit this photo at all.)

I hope they do away with it. I think it looks really dated.

I'd pay good money for the opportunity to take a hammer to those orange floods. Orange lighting looks horrible (to me). Looks like SSE is constantly celebrating Halloween.
