EPCOT's new main entrance fountain is continuing to be worked on following the installation of the new pylons last week.

The temporary support structure has been removed, leaving the 4000lb acrylic pylons free-standing atop the fountain.

The fountain is the last major component of the new entrance area redesign, with lead Imagineer Zach Riddley saying it will be completed this year.

Will there be some type of lighting ceremony each night?

I'm sure there will indeed be some subtle twinkling. But I'm also sure there will be very bright and animated shows popping up at regular intervals.

And this is sort of giving me these vibes...

I mean, I guess this matches, but I thought that concept art was showing 2 bright lights and lots of dimmer lights across the flood-lit sphere. Oh well, it's probably fine. There are far worse things at WDW.

Or it could be the video quality, Twitter's video quality is odd at times. Maybe it will look better on Youtube.

I was hoping for more subtle twinkling. This stuff is going to age pretty quickly. It already feels like a low resolution Jumbotron.

They were always static white up until this year. With the rest of the entrance, they were upgraded to do all sorts of nice color stuff. Even the lighting at the restrooms were upgraded. Everything is now full RGB. Default seems to be green on the right (World Nature), red on the left (World Discovery) but it'll also rest at blue with a nice "swooping" effect going on. Crap quality but you can see the transition happening on the right:

have the red/green/blue/white lights been always been running around the entrance area? was walking out of Epcot the other day and was just surprised at how they were flashing, changing color often, changing the speed in which they moved around the park--I thought when they were going to do something like this at the people mover they ended up just leaving it set on one color.
