Hopelly in this transition stage, the monorail beam seen within Epcot will get fresh new paint as well.
Painting concrete is always a somewhat dangerous choice. It looks good on the first day, but it is downhill from there if it is not constantly repainted.I thought they had learned their lesson about painting the monorail supports from the awfulness that is the Polynesian track and supports. Sigh.
Same holes, just uncovered. I asked @marni1971 the same question a few months ago.Totally random question here with regards to those holes in the fountain for the new/old decorative pillars, but someone told me that they had "cut" them in to get ready for the new decoration. I made the point that since the pillars were there in 1982 and the fountain structure has been there just as long, that those are probably just the original "holes" to be fitted with new pillars. Any information on this?
I'd assume the same thing too. Cheaper to cover then create a whole new top.Awesome, thanks. I reckon they've just covered them with those bricks for 20 years then.
Knowing how much Disney likes to wall things up to save on construction costs, unless there was any kind of potential for water or corrosion damage, it wouldn't surprise me.I'd assume the same thing too. Cheaper to cover then create a whole new top.
However, he wasn't sure how much of the original lighting setup was removed. They'll obviously be going the route of using LEDs but it would be interesting if there's any '82 tech left inside that still needs removed.
The letter G looks like it’s from a different typeface. Between that and the incorrect grammar, this was clearly a rush job. At least it can be fixed.Huge improvement over what we had! However, that G is assaulting my eyes. I feel like they really should have developed a lighter, secondary typeface for applications such as these because it is nearly impossible to read from a distance. Maybe it's in the works!
What are the portable planters blocking off here? I have to assume there is more work to do but I can’t work out what it is!Photo update as of Friday, November 22, 2019. Over at the International Gateway Epcot entrance, the new Guest Relations windows opened today, this evening. The portable kiosk building located on the walkway to the Epcot resorts is closed. This photo was taken just before the new windows opened.

I didn't even see the GOTG building there first glance. Seriously, before I clicked the photo scrolling through the form I wouldn't have noticed it. The effect works... when your not in the parking lot loll
