In case you missed it over the weekend, we released new concept art for some Spaceship Earth manhole covers that will grace the re-imagined entrance area of Epcot when it is completed, also confirming the return to a classic style logo for the park:
Today, we’ll take a look at some more previously unreleased art showcasing what this new entrance plaza will look like. First, here’s the concept art already released by Disney:
To give you a better idea of what you’ll be walking through when the project is done, here’s a new rendering providing a view from above:
The new rendering should give you a better idea of the pavement design and layout of planters and such for the new entrance area. Leave a Legacy monoliths are currently being removed to make way for this project.

Last, but not least, guests will find new benches throughout the area. The benches are wood with stylish accents for the supports.
All of this work is part of Project Gamma, which includes an re-imagining of the park’s entrance, the center area of Future World, and eventually, Spaceship Earth. We of course revealed all of these plans already and you can read all about the yet-to-be-announced details of Project Gamma here, such as the new Beer Garden, Permanent Festival Center, and more.
