Pin Traders and Camera Center new signs
Posted: Wednesday August 26, 2020 2:30pm ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

Alongside the update to the Gateway Gifts signage, the 'Pin Traders and Camera Center' also has a new look.

The new signage follows the look of Gateway Gifts with shades of blue, backlit perimeter blue LED lighting and the updated font design.

The Nikon logo remains on the Camera Center sign.

The Pin Traders and Camera Center location was reopened in December 2019, with a new look both inside and outside. Those signs only lasted for just over 6 months before being replaced with the new look from this week.

There's a huge difference in watching a video or reading about something and experiencing it in person, though. It's the reason they still have trade shows for new technology/products, and why people still actually travel around the world. Or even visit WDW itself, for that matter.

When I say "for today's time" I'm more so referring to the fact that the futurism theme is unfortunately not necessary. In terms of an educational futuristic theme at least. I dont know if theres a lot of appeal for an informal futuristic park in a world where we have all the information we could ever want at our finger tips. The future that was talked about in the 80's is already here.

EXACTLY!!! This is the kind of WOW you should have when you walk in the doors.... There is so much they could do to make this pavilion feel more dynamic...

Unless the airport looks like this:

Great pictures. It looks like more walkways are completed when you look at the third picture.

Don’t know what that walkway level beam structure is, supposed to be a planter but looks like it could be a structure for interactive lighting or a fountain or maybe a splash pad. We can call it the Spalash Pad of Nations 🤣

I think the Soarin' queue is the least of their concerns in there even if it could be more. I agree with you that the rest needs to be more reflective of visual trends from modern sustainable architecture rather than just looking like a food court, though. Just changing the railing, adding more natural materials like woods cladding, bringing in a new color scheme, and adding some actual flora (even if it's in the form of some fairly basic "green" planted walls or whatever) would do a lot.

I liked the concept they went with, but I thought it needed to tell more of a story. Like going through major eras of airport design or flight. Or going through a stylized version of major biomes around the world. Or the LandPort - exploring the various ways we use flight to understand our planet (like use in agriculture, weather, and - of course - travel). Just something more than "generic office pretty". Modern Disney seems to nail it when the queue has an IP to use (and with new stories - not rehashing the existing ones). But, they somehow lose all storytelling when there isn't one used.

The whole interior overhaul for Soarin' that was supposed to look like an airport was just kind of wrong... and instantly dated looking. They need to bring some design and wow factor inside... Less Mall Food Court, but make it really feel like the pavilion celebrates The Land...water features, Giant trees holding up the vaulted roof, some fantastic kinetics...Going inside should be amazing...and Living With The Land needs it's theme some back and a better finale... a better throughline and story....

Carpet's a start, I suppose. The color scheme, fixtures, and some of the other surfaces are what really need help, though.

Judging by past Disney behavior, that means they're going to raze The Land and replace it with a coaster!!

Small update: all the carpeting on the lower level of The Land was recently replaced

Therein lies the problem. Out of all the parks in WDW, Epcot should especially be designing for the future. Not the present.
