Today flags were raised at the entrance of EPCOT near Spaceship Earth. These flags celebrate the six original EPCOT icons and are a part of the continued transformation of EPCOT that is currently underway. This is just the most recent milestone in the continued transformation of this park at Walt Disney World Resort. These 12 flags join multiple other milestones at EPCOT recently. This includes a new fountain in front of Spaceship Earth, the new Leave a Legacy display just outside of the park, new barges for the upcoming Harmonious nighttime spectacular, and other updates that continue to happen around the park.
Here is a look at the flags being raised this morning and also what these new icons look like at the entrance of EPCOT.
Along with the new flags, new music can now be heard at the entrance of EPCOT. The music captures the grandeur and wonder of EPCOT. Although most is not technically Disney, the music has an EPCOT feel to it. The music includes pieces from Our Planet, DisneyNature’s Dolphins, Eternal Beauty, The Greatest Game Ever Played, Saving Mr. Banks, and others. Within hours of the music being experienced by guests, playlists were popping up online on various streaming services.
Here is one playlist that appears to have most of the songs on the new entrance music loop for EPCOT:
