Oops.

WALT DISNEY WORLD, FL — As part of “Epcot 2.0,” the granite Leave a Legacy markers in the Epcot entrance plaza are being removed to a location outside the gates. However, as the photo above shows, the contractor charged with the job thought he was taking out Spaceship Earth as well.

An embarrassed Walt Disney World Resort administration has admitted that “maybe the instructions could have been clearer.”

Behind schedule

There is no word as to when the de-construction will be corrected. An official with Epcot management would only say that “The opening of Epcot 2.0 may be a bit delayed.”
