Ever notice those plaques out front of Epcot? Look closer and you’ll see names and faces of Guests from around the globe.
The Leave a Legacy program, launched during our Millennium Celebration in the fall of 1999, gave Guests the opportunity to leave a little piece of themselves at one of their favorite places. Photo-capture stations took their digital images, which were then etched onto steel tiles and mounted on one of 30 granite megaliths in the Leave a Legacy Plaza. The megaliths range in height from 3 to 19 feet, and the heaviest one weighs more than 50,000 pounds!
Veteran Imagineer John Hench (1908 – 2004), an artist with The Walt Disney Company since 1939, designed the plaza as well as Spaceship Earth. He was also the original art director of Epcot itself and helped design and build Disneyland before that.
Looking for Your Legacy Tile?
Though the Leave a Legacy program was discontinued in June 2007, more than 550,000 tiles were sold and remain on display for Guests to remember their very special day at Epcot. If you’re at the park, you can find your tile via computer lookup at the Leave a Legacy Locator Station inside the Camera Center under Spaceship Earth. If you’re looking for information about your tile and you’re not on site, you can send an email to WDW.EC.firstname.lastname@example.org.
