    The Walt Disney Imagineering EPCOT project team raised flags featuring six original EPCOT icons on 12 new flagpoles flanking Spaceship Earth as we celebrate finishing touches at the new entrance plaza. These icons go back to the original design philosophy of the park and represent pavilions and attractions in a vibrant new palette that is inspired by the new EPCOT neighborhoods.

    In addition to the flags, a color-coordinated light ribbon around the entire rim of the plaza connects with our recently revealed fountain lighting.

    A new main entrance soundtrack brings energy and optimism to the revitalized architecture, lush landscape and flowing fountain of the re-imagined guest entry experience.

    While there are still some small details to button up this area, the reimagined entrance plaza is now open to welcome and unite Guests in celebrating the magic of possibility found within each other.

    Do you guys remember the icons? I never knew about them. It's an interesting concept.
    I'll meet you at the Rainbow Bridge.

    Well, I've been going since opening year - 82 - so yep!

    Every attraction in future world had an icon. They were on the signs and they had their own color as well. Very well thought out and identifiable - at a time when mobile phones weren't a thing.

    I'm really glad they are brining them back.

    I'd rather still have the attractions.

    The plaza is epic... But have you all heard the new entry plaza background music???? I will be honest, I like it but going to take a little time to get used to it... Been listening to it in loop for two days... This is going to be EPIC (universe ahem ahem)....

    TRICIA JONES: I heard that you were going to propose to Brandi Svenning at some theme park. When are men going to learn that women want ROMANCE, not Mr. Toad's Wild Ride...

    BRODIE: Hey, now, be fair. EVERYONE wants Mr. Toad's Wild Ride.
