PHOTOS - Flag poles coming to the entrance of EPCOT

Jan 27, 2021 in "EPCOT"

EPCOT main entrance flag install

The main entrance of EPCOT was largely complete with the unveiling of the new fountain, but it appears that there may be more to come in that area.

There are now six flag pole bases, complete with LED up-lighting, in a planter on the right side near to Spaceship Earth.

On the left side, near to the stroller rental area, a construction wall is in place for presumably more flag pole bases to be installed in this area.

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

My point being, there has been love for Fantasia shown. For years. It’s not something that’s been saved for F&G.

I thought it looked familiar.

And would you be surprised to know that this is the exact same topiary?

Might we get the Flags tomorrow for Opening day for Flower and Garden? Do we have a Flag Insider? LOL!

It is starting to look like the original version of the entrance. Glad the old look has returned.

There used to always be a Sorceror Mickey and dancing brooms topiaries at DHS.

The reimagined entrance of Epcot, in front of SSE at least, is leaps and bounds better than before. I have not seen it in person yet but there is something about seeing these photos of plaza with the flag poles flanking both sides of the attraction that gives me, for lack of a better word, chills. I know that's a silly reaction but I never felt any sense of awe walking into the park with the former entrance. I'm very much looking forward to how the rest of the area is fine tuned.

Yes, just answered my own question. Pictures on this site show me the planting. It's not the same color, but obviously need time for plants/trees to grow.

? πŸ€” Looking more at the concept art - I already like the flag poles, have they already added all the planters and trees or will there be more?

Can we please stay on the topic of the Entrance? There's another thread for Harmonious.

Well, not to spoil it for you, but I don't think things look too great beyond Spaceship Earth right now from what I'm picking up on. ;)
