PHOTOS: EPCOT Parking Lots Renamed After Guardians of the Galaxy, WALL-E, Moana, and Finding Nemo Characters

The parking lots at EPCOT have been rethemed to “Space” and “Earth” rather than East and West. Each section is now represented by a character as well.

Earth and Space

The east and west trams are now the Earth and Space trams — although trams have yet to return to EPCOT.

Signs direct guests to Earth and Space tram boarding areas, listing the parking lots those trams visit.

The Space section includes WALL-E, Eve, Rocket, and Gamora. The Eve parking lot is still under construction, but the rest have their new names and signage.

The signs closer to the park entrance have also been updated to include the Earth and Space trams.

“Earth tram” is still missing from a few directional signs.

The characters are all represented by attractions in the park: Rocket and Gamora with Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, Crush and Dory with The Seas with Nemo & Friends, HeiHei and Moana with the upcoming Journey of Water, Inspired by “Moana”, and WALL-E and Eve with the “WALL-E” Green Landing Family Zone.

The directional signs closer to the lots point to exact sections, like “Crush Parking” and “HeiHei Parking.”

The endcaps with the old names have been painted over — although the old names and numbers are still visible in some spots.
