Concrete work in-front of Pin Traders and Camera Center - May 14 2021
Posted: Friday May 14, 2021 11:32am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

The new concrete design at the EPCOT main entrance is now nearing completion beneath Spaceship Earth.

Pin Traders and Camera Center has now reopened with the work complete in-front of the store. The new design replaces the original pink colored concrete.

A construction wall remains in place in the area with the high reach lift for the Spaceship Earth 'Points of Light' installation still in position.

The first photo shows in the tweet that the Side LEDS are covered in a yellow phosphor based gel. Just looking at this, the side lights, I would be surprised to see as RGB as there isn't even anything indicating RGBW as it would be a half and half. But the lens gives me the impression that they are using a Cree/Luxeon Star style light on the sides. To Surmise, I fully believe the sides are Cool White LEDS only, and the center is RGBW in cool white, unless it's a 2 package deal thats running Bicolor LEDs with the RGBLEDs.

I think of this scene whenever Disney mentions beacons lighting up and whenever Oct 1st rolls around.

Yes as far as I know they are all RGB.

I believe the whole SSE is RGB?

Shame the sides are only cool while LED and not RGB but alas.

If this is what they have in mind, and the LEDs aren't on all the time, I could actually grow to really love this.

New Photo from Zach! Saw it on Twitter from That Other Site. Maybe we don't need the flood lights anymore??? Pretty!!! Cant wait for 2 weeks!!! Unless SSE/Harm soft opens right after EF's last night???

This will never get old for me. Ever. (ETA: I didn't edit this photo at all.)

I hope they do away with it. I think it looks really dated.

I'd pay good money for the opportunity to take a hammer to those orange floods. Orange lighting looks horrible (to me). Looks like SSE is constantly celebrating Halloween.
