One of the last remaining pieces of legacy signage removed from EPCOT

Updated EPCOT Guest Relations sign and exterior - May 16 2022
Posted: Monday May 16, 2022 11:04am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

The EPCOT Guest Relations sign has been removed and replaced with the new style as work continues in this area of the park.

The Guest Relations sign over the entrance was one of the last remaining legacy signs in the former Future World. Guest Relations has been temporarily relocated to the front of the park during the work.

Elsewhere in this area work is wrapping up on the newly extended column between Guest Relations and Connections Cafe. This addition conceals a stairway for rooftop access. The tall lighting poles seen elsewhere in World Celebration and World Discovery have also been installed.

Paintwork is also nearing completion in this area, with only a small section remaining in the former blue color.

Any idea what they're doing there? Backstage stuff or just expanded pathways, planters and maybe benches?

Out of curiosity, has there been any progress to the left of guest relations? Last time I saw a photo of that area, it was still fenced off and the original planter looked like it had been beaten to heck and back.

I'm wondering if that means they're going to open the Odyssey as a 40th exhibit (like many have theorized) with that model still sitting in there. Would be really funny to see the festival table come back from the dead again after the real one officially died.

I've always wanted them to put Mickey's ears and face on Spaceship Earth to make a a nice sized plushie out of it. 😂
