PHOTOS - Walls down and flag pole bases completed on the east side of the main entrance

Feb 23, 2021 in "EPCOT"

EPCOT main entrance eastern flag install
Posted: Tuesday February 23, 2021 10:37am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

Construction walls are now down around the eastern side of Spaceship Earth revealing another set of flag pole bases.

As we expected, like the western side, the eastern side now has a matching set of 6 flag pole bases.

Each of the bases is flanked by a pair of LED spotlights.

We can see a number of flags in this piece of concept art, which although it doesn't show them in quite the same place, it does show the overall effect.

From what I can tell that's only 2 fonts but they manage to not clash somehow. Pretty neat. I think the "frontier" font was meant to bring in the Indigenous theming throughout the pavilion. Very weird though.

That makes my brain hurt.

That thing is awful.

If that is indeed a "Poly font", then they're doing it wrong. There's nothing about that font that fits with the them of Poly. It is indeed more modern and befitting of Epcot even if it isn't the new Epcot font. Remember, you can use more than one font.

Or did the Poly reuse it from EPCoT? :cautious:

I thought that it looked like it belonged at the Poly instead of Epcot.

Incredible, just absolutely incredible.

Wait did they just reuse the font from Poly? 🤣:banghead: Picture is from the Orlando Sentinel. But I’m almost positive it’s the same font!

I think he’s specifically referring to this font

There’s multiple of this flapless design around world showcase already, but still with the brown colour

First garbage can or first mistake of many? 😉

I love the idea of taking the parks signage and font back to the original.

Not sure what is going on with this. I think there is only one of these out. Perhaps a mistake, or maybe the first of many.

Mmm… the garbage-can-smelting-in-the-Florida-sun smell can flow freely into the air now! 🤢
