As we announced earlier in the month, progress has begun on the removal of the Leave A Legacy monoliths at the entrance to Epcot. The walls went up recently, but actual demolition didn’t seem to start right away. Well, now it has!
The first step, as one would assume based on Disney’s official announcement, is to remove the actual legacy plaques. These are being relocated to someplace just outside the park entrance. Once these are removed, then the removal of the monoliths themselves can happen.
They look like they were glued on there pretty good.
Only some of the monuments have lost their plaques so far.
What’s this? One of the smaller monoliths seems to already be missing. All that’s left behind is a concrete base.
This tells me the monoliths themselves might not be that hard to remove. The bases, on the other hand, will require some digging. All the accent lights will need to be removed as well. Expect all the concrete in the area to ultimately be replaced.
This is just the first phase of the hard reset on the park entrance. You can expect work to continue throughout the summer. We’ll keep you updated as things change.
Are you excited for the new entrance? Will you miss the monoliths? Do you or someone you know have a Leave A Legacy photo in the park? Let us know!
