The white Spaceship Earth-inspired panels have been removed from the EPCOT parking plaza.
Three white triangular sails are usually seen behind the large “Epcot” sign above the plaza.
The sails may have been removed so Disney can finally replace the outdated “Epcot” sign. EPCOT has gone back to the uppercase style in the past few years, but the parking plaza sign has still featured lowercase letters.
Above is what the panels looked like. The decór and sign were added to the plaza in the 1990s when the name of the park was last changed.
Inside EPCOT, signage has been slowly replaced over the past couple of years as the park’s look is completely updated. The final Future World sign was removed earlier this fall, and the old “Welcome to Epcot” signs were removed this summer. Directional signage throughout the park is now color-coded to the different “neighborhoods” and features new pavilion logos and rounded lettering.
