Back in 1999, The Leave a Legacy program, launched during epcots Millennium Celebration in, gave Guests the opportunity to commemorate their visit to Epcot at the turn of the last century.
Photo-capture stations took their pictures, which were then etched onto steel tiles and mounted on one of 30 monoliths in the Leave a Legacy Plaza. Each stone ranges in height from 3 to 19 feet, and the heaviest one weighs more than 50,000 pounds!
Though the program was discontinued in June 2007, more than 550,000 tiles were sold and remain on display.
The Project Gamma is just starting to Rev Up. Meaning the Leave A Legacy Monoliths demolishing. As part of the new entry experience coming to Epcot, Leave A Legacy snapshots will be moving into a beautiful setting just outside the park’s gateway in 2020. Work on current Leave A Legacy monolith removal is expected to take place in sections, beginning with the west side first and then moving over to the east side.
Continuation of Project Gamma include significant redevelopment being at Spaceship Earth and the World Showcase Promenade. Including the Closure of Epcot Character Spot, The FountainView Starbucks and Club Cool, In addition to the demolition of Innovations West.
