Epcot is Starting to Get a Paint Job

Share This!

There’s a bold paint scheme starting to appear around Epcot. Take a look at the formerly all off-white Odyssey building (between Future World and World Showcase) now sporting a stylized triangles and stripes in a retro almost-rainbow color palette. The hues here remind me a bit of the old rainbow light arch from the 1980s Journey into Imagination, and they were foreshadowed by the pin collection that was all the rage at D23 last month.

A not quite visible grey logo also shows what looks like one of the new “neighborhood” logos. We can’t wait to see more.

      Our parks reporter Christina took these photos yesterday (Monday) at about noon. We think the painting was done over the weekend.

    I like it. ’80s-revival without looking dated. Dare we hope they’re not going to screw this up?!

    The Odyssey stripes look a lot like the recent Tomorrowland paint scheme.

      I hear you. It’s like a retro-future feel in both places.
