Leave a Legacy was a unique feature at Epcot that allowed guests to leave a lasting impression on the park by having their photo etched onto a small metal tile. The tiles were arranged in a series of monoliths that stood just inside the entrance to the park, forming an impressive wall of images that spanned over a decade.

Leave a Legacy was introduced in 1999 as part of Epcot’s Millennium Celebration. The project was a collaboration between Disney and Kodak, with the goal of creating a permanent monument to the millions of guests who had visited Epcot.

Guests could purchase a tile in one of three sizes and choose from a range of backgrounds. The tiles were engraved with the guest’s photo and/or a short message, and would remain on display for 10 years.

In 2019, Disney announced that Leave a Legacy would be removed from the park entrance as part of a major renovation project. The monoliths were dismantled in stages, with the first section of tiles being removed in June 2019. The final tiles were relocated to a new location just outside the park entrance, where they continue to be on display.
