The transformation of Epcot’s entrance is under way — including the removal of the Leave a Legacy photos. The removal of the photos is now complete on the right side as you enter the park.

The announcement of the entrance transformation promised a more open experience, and now we get a preview of that.

In this artist rendering, a new entrance plaza in development at Epcot will greet guests with new pathways, sweeping green spaces and a reimagined fountain. This design will pay homage to the original park entrance with fresh takes on classic elements. (Disney)

For the past few weeks construction walls were around the Leave a Legacy photos as they were being removed. Now, the right side of the entrance plaza is open.

It appears as though the removal has eased congestion in this area.

  1. My son and I had are images engraved and we always looked forward to seeing it every time we went back. Are they relocating them anywhere?

  2. Thank heavens. They were an eyesore at best. Clean clear open spaces with flowers and wide walkways looks wonderful.

  3. My husband passed away on 12/17/17 from Alzheimer’s. We took him on his last trip to WDW during MAY 2017 and stayed at Old Key West. During 2000 we haq our images engraved on Leave a Legacy. We took a picture of where we were located on the monoliths. My husband’s dream was always to live in Florida. We had him cremated now he will get his wish when we move to Florida. Memories are hard to erase from the happiest place on Earth in Walt Disney World.

      1. Brian is a occasional poster (and I’m sure a decent guy) here who is greatly pained by any comments I might make where I think Disney got it wrong. Was just pointing out to him that I also give Disney credit whenever I think they get it right.

        1. Ah, now I see. Since he hadn’t posted a comment here (not yet, at least), I couldn’t be sure who you were responding to. So this was kind of like a preemptive strike, I reckon.

          1. Right. Good natured though. I respect everyone here, and most know by now not to take what I say too seriously.
