The stars atop the Spaceship Earth icon at Epcot have been removed. Except for the crane and the small part of the structure that held Mickey’s hand, the “Epcot ball” is starting to look like it’s old self.
All that remained today atop the ball were the stems that held the stars. Those and the rest of the structure, as well as the crane, are to be removed by the end of September. This is just in time for Epcot’s 25th anniversary.
