Epcot’s main entrance transformation looks like it’s nearly complete

Things may look pretty different when guests eventually return to the main entrance of Epcot. A new aerial photo shows that significant progress has been made on the transformation of Epcot’s main entrance, and the area may be almost completed.

Prior to the Walt Disney World theme parks temporarily closing, one portion of the main entrance had already reopened to guests following the removal of the Leave a Legacy monoliths. But a large center area was still blocked by construction walls as Disney installed a new fountain and changed the landscaping and walkways.

Now, things look just about done in this aerial from @bioreconstruct.

We can see that the new fountain is nearing completion and many of the walkways have already been reconfigured. There’s still some landscaping work to be done and some final touches left on the fountain, but it doesn’t look like there are any significant hurdles remaining. This area could be completed very quickly once work resumes.

Let’s compare it to the original concept art from Disney.

As a reminder, concept art isn’t concrete and is always subject to change. The area is currently missing some of the more specific details found in the concept art, such as character topiaries, but those could be added at a future time. Disney could also deviate away from the initial plans should they need to rein in budgets following this unprecedented health crisis.
