The reimagining of Epcot’s entrance at Walt Disney World took another step forward this week with the installation of prism pylons.

The pylons will sit on top of a fountain in front of the park’s iconic geodesic sphere and are part of Epcot’s reimagining transformation. The transformation will welcome Future World being split up into three new “neighborhoods.” The park will now consist of World Showcase, as well as World Celebration, World Nature and World Discovery.

Walt Disney Imagineer Zach Riddley, who is currently leading work Epcot’s overhaul, shared video of the pylon installation on his Instagram account.

“Today I’m proud to share this behind-the-scenes video capturing the installation process as it happened,” Riddley wrote in a caption on his Instagram page. “These three acrylic pylons, each standing over 16 feet tall and weighing more than 4,000 pounds, were digitally modeled then milled and polished using state-of-the-art technology to achieve this perfect finish and amazing reflection effect.”

Earlier this week I shared a first-look of the installation of our new EPCOT fountain pylons. It’s been amazing to see everyone’s reactions – and we’re excited to reveal the completed project later this year. Today I’m proud to share this behind-the-scenes video capturing the installation process as it happened. These three acrylic pylons, each standing over 16 feet tall and weighing more than 4,000 pounds, were digitally modeled then milled and polished using state-of-the-art technology to achieve this perfect finish and amazing reflection effect. Our team of Imagineers orchestrated the delicate process of placing the pylons in their new home, where they will welcome generations of guests to this park filled with the magic of possibility, discovery and wonder.
