Posted: Wednesday August 26, 2020 11:04am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

One of the last surviving EPCOT Center signs has been removed and replaced under Spaceship Earth at Gateway Gifts.

The original sign lasted through several refurbishments, including the most recent earlier in the year.

The new style sign is part of the park's makeover, and matches the other new signage that is being installed throughout what is currently Future World.

Less ride more Imageworks/general construction/minor tech updates.

Oh? Might this have to do with an Imagination overhaul? Rumors aside, I’m shocked Figment isn’t being prominently featured in the new CommuniCore lineup. I know he has his own pavilion, but still.

Wow. After all these years and all the construction, we basically have the same southwest building as before with a bunch of trees strewn about randomly. At this point I'd rather have what was there in 2018 with some trees instead of the tarps. The fact we'll be stuck with this for the next 20 years makes it even worse.

All resources are being directed to the cake bake shop and corn dog stand.

Willing to bet Figment moves to Communicore Hall within a year and a half if what I heard holds true.

They are NOT adding any other characters to the Pavilion..It will just be Figment as Mickey will be moving soon to Communicore Hall.

It is outrageous that this hasn’t been fixed. Put up a construction wall, rip the reproductive planter and lights out, and try again.

Speaking of characters, who would replace Joy at ImageWorks?, since Figment's all alone now, unless IW would soon see its end and nobody else will be coming over Bing Bong Moon Girl/Lunella Lafayette Powerline Max Wade & Ember Molly McGee

Now, we must ask what are they intending on doing with Mickey's "other" spot at Magic Eye? Is it being closed up? is Figment Moving there? We need to know!!

Agreed. It’s embarrassingly bad.

This is so embarrassing.

Such a missed opportunity to have them meet in their retro spaceship earth outfits…when the mural outside has them in it. I would even be happy with a modern day outfit with spaceship earth designs…it’s practically the same thing that used to be there 🤦‍♂️

Is that it, is this really going to have the same three characters like the old 2013-19 era Character Spot had before the five year transformation.., Disney Live Entertainment takes another disappointing L for keeping things the same, why couldn't they add a fourth character for guests to see like either Max Goof or Clarabelle Cow alongside Mickey, Minnie, and Goofy :(
