Work to begin imminently on the new Epcot entrance with portions of Leave a Legacy to close

May 17, 2019 in "EPCOT"

Construction walls will go up around Leave a Legacy this weekend as work begins on the new Epcot entrance design.

New pathways, sweeping green spaces and a newly reimagined fountain will all be part of the new look, and as part of this new entry experience, Leave A Legacy photos will move into a new setting just outside the park’s gateway. While the photos will be staying, the granite columns will not be part of the new display.

Construction taking place in phases, and the new Leave a Legacy will be ready in 2020. Work will first begin on the west side of Leave a Legacy through the summer, moving to the east side later in the year.

Rumor has it this will be an uncharge tour - but participants will receive a cupcake.

I certainly hope so. I missed the flower & tree planter tour my last trip and was very disappointed. :D

And to think, they list that as one of the Epcot "attractions". Hmm... I don't recall ever seeing FP+ available for this experience. Was I supposed to hold my Magic Band up to the marble? Wonder if they'll be updating that page to showcase the flower and tree planter attraction now? 😏

Ummmm, so they were 5 years apart at the time and are now 10 years apart? 😁

I am really glad to hear they are doing this. My former wife and I did Leave a Legacy for our sons, they were 11 & 6 at the time. Now they are 36 & 26. Before they were taken down we would always find their square. The great thing was you just needed to go into the photo supply store and they had the list of the "block", the side it was on then the section and row.

It was worth the price to be able to bring our kids to see the one we got on our honeymoon in 2000. They thought it was awesome.

Here are the columns for the Leave a Legacy wall. The scrim is attached to the columns.

I wonder if they make these huge and make extra space to make more money by adding a new section for purchase. Lets be honest the profit margin is huge and there will always be people willing to pay money to have themselves have a memory at epcot, that "generations " can see.

I hear they'll be installing them on huge monoliths... https://disneyworld.disney.go.com/attractions/epcot/leave-a-legacy/
