EXPERIMENTAL PROTOTYPE COMMUNITY OF TOMMOROW CENTER, FL — In a move that has shocked a few people, Disney has returned the “Leave a Legacy” monoliths to the front of the Epcot Centre Center. The monoliths, which were removed starting in 2018, have been relocated from inside the park to outside the main entrance.
The Leave a Legacy monoliths were often referred to as tombstones. However, Disney executives have repeatedly denied that they are memorials for the guests who never made it out of the park. In fact, one executive, who refused to be named [Ed.: Hi Josh!] even spoke on the record:
“No. Those are not memorials for the guests who never made it out of the park,”
Josh our source told us. “As far as we know, Martin Short is the only person who ever got stuck in the Canada movie and never made it to his Soarin’ FastPass.”
Maybe they’re not tombstones
When the monoliths reappeared (with a brand new coat of neon paint, no less!), we spoke with Disney (the company) spokesperson Jun Disney (no relation). “These are brand new. It’s something we’ve never done before. Allowing regular park guests to put their photos inside one of our parks? It’s an amazing new idea!”
We asked Disney (no relation) again whether the markers contain human remains. “You know I can’t comment on that,” she replied. “However, we have placed signs asking guests to maintain a respectful silence when viewing the Leave a Legacy markers.”
