New signage at Gateway Gifts
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.

Right, like at least pick a photo of an Apple Store that has a wood ceiling

I'd be surprised if they removed it; they can use it for another festival kitchen. At the bare minimum, whatever it becomes will cause far less congestion than the only Starbuck in a park.

Since Disney is building outside the berm now we can find some technicalities lol. Starbucks can be like “are we in Disneyland, because I think we’re actually on Pandora/Black Spire Outpost?”

Yeah but nobody’s shelling out $600+ apiece to see the same modern architecture that we can get at a local shopping center. It’s the same issue that’s going on with the bland Polynesian DVC/Holiday Inn tower.

Is this supposed to be problematic...? It's literally just modern architecture

Starbucks must be the Vader of this setup, given how they treat their beans.

I think the contract says they’re only allowed one per park

That would also be a good place for a second Starbucks I am just saying.

Christmas keeps coming earlier and earlier each year.

Could this be for its removal?

There was this recently in the permit thread from @danlb_2000 on the empty building.

They also look pretty different.

Curious about that as well. While they’re at it can we please get rid of the empty old Starbucks building? Also they need to move the food kiosk at the end of that path opposite Refreshment Port. That intersection is always a choke point.
