Epcot Main entrance remodel relocates Tram Loading zone

The Disney Blog

A few weeks ago, work began on transforming EPCOT’s main entrance to match the new vision Disney has for the second gate to open at Walt Disney World. The look will remove the Leave a Legacy display, return the area inside the gates to more a garden feel and restore the fountain to its former glory.

Outside the gates promises an even bigger transformation. New security check areas will require relocating the tram loading and drop off zone further back from the front of the park. We had a peek at recent construction work.

To be fair, even though Epcot has the largest parking lot at Walt Disney World, the four sections used most frequently are very walkable. It is those parking lots used when the park gets very busy that really need a tram to get to and from one’s vehicle. When the work is done, I will be curious to see if the plan is to run two completely separate tram loops like they do at Magic Kingdom, or continue the one tram for all method Epcot has used in the past.

  1. Do you know are those monolith being moved to a different location?? Or just being turned to rubble

      1. Good to know … my wife and I did the Leave a Legacy thing on our first trip to WDW, and our kid did likewise a few years later. Though the arrangement was ugly as sin, it was always special to us to be able to go back and revisit those reminders.

  2. I would say that there will be two completely separate tram loops and the four lots (Journey, Amaze, Discover, and Create) will become split up into sections named for Future World’s attraction characters and the three lots east of the four lots (Imagine, Explore, and Wonder) will be split up as well with the same renaming method but named for the World Showcase pavilions. That means there will be no that the trams will run service with the method they used in the past. The same thing had occurred in the Magic Kingdom with the Heroes and Villains lots for the trams that go to the Transportation and Ticket Center.

  3. And if you meant the parking lots used to get a tram to the entrance to Epcot, that would mean the Imagine, Explore, and Wonder lots as opposed to the Journey, Amaze, Discover and Create lots.
