PHOTOS - Demolition walls up around Leave a Legacy at Epcot's main entrance

May 20, 2019 in "EPCOT"

Leave a Legacy demolition walls

Demolition walls are now up around the western side of Leave a Legacy at Epcot's main entrance.

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.

A fun thing about opinions is that we get to have different ones. I think these are unsightly and that the Harmonous barges will probably look fine and perhaps even pleasant once switched on. The consensus opinion here is the opposite on both counts. Oh well sometimes we disagree, but don’t presume to tell me what I should or shouldn’t get annoyed about. It’s my damn opinions.

There is a lot... *a lot*... of infrastructure that one can see by getting up close to stuff. Get up close to a copse of bushes and trees? One gets to see speakers, pipes, access hatches galore. It's not just a nice bit of landscaping. Every bit of lighting looks like... light installations... when seen up close. This isn't an argument for sloppy or lazy attempts to hide infrastructure that fails obviously. But if anyone wants to find fault because they can see light fixtures by getting up real close to them, then they will be continually disappointed. I'd hate to point out to them the joints in the concrete walkways...

I know they might look more obvious if they're placed on the bottom, but so far this actually doesn't look bad. I can't wait to see them at night. Going in about 10 days, I'm excited to see the new entrance in person!

Guys. Deep breaths. This is really not something worth getting annoyed about.

If they were there from day 1 and they removed them people would say SSE looks like Swiss cheese. I think the look cool. Almost like back in the day they knew there would be programmable lights they could control by computer in the future and they left cut outs for them. Probably Joe's idea.

He laughs at most posts that are remotely critical of anything Disney is doing.

Nope. I am not concerned with the ones on the roof.

Because you can’t see them unless you zoom in on pics of them. I assumed it was a joke....

Kinda look forward to seeing what some time exposure pictures of SSE look like of this at night though.

@GrandCanyonConcourse why the laugh?

:/ I genuinely am annoyed by these.

Honestly, I think I slightly prefer the look of them being there. This project is a delightful surprise.
