EPCOT main entrance west flag poles
Posted: Friday February 26, 2021 2:34pm ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

The second set of flag poles were installed overnight at EPCOT on the western side of Spaceship Earth, bringing the total to twelve.

Although all the poles are now in place, there are not yet have any flags on display. Each pole is a brushed stainless steel appearance and lit from below with color changing programmable LED lights.

Expectations are that pavilions of EPCOT will be represented on the flags.

The new flags are part of the ongoing redevelopment of the park's main entrance, which will continue with the addition of new lighting for the exterior of Spaceship Earth.

When I saw that I was hoping it meant the palms they were talking about flanked SSE just like when the park opened. I'm glad they're back near the line for SSE though, but got my hopes up too quick.

So that's how they are going to hide the barges and stargate, by blinding you upon entry!

Looks like half a Pepsi logo. Thankfully Club Cool is a Coke thing, don't want anyone to get any ideas...

Yeah the camera has just blown all that out. Don’t think any conclusion can be made about anything from that shot, other than half of them turn on lol

Disney has built the ultimate weapon, and it's been right in front of us this whole time...

Led's at full power are bright as hell... especially if they have a narrow lens.
