  • Would you please explain what the Spaceship Earth paint changes are, and how they suggest that the Leave a Legacy structures may be on track for removal? The link you provide just takes me to caption-less photos of the area. But what is the connection?

    Thanks!

  • I can’t remember what our paperwork said, but there was something in our Leave a Legacy tile order form that guaranteed us that our plaque would be up for a certain number of years (I think it was either 10 or 15). I don’t know if that was from when they first started being sold or from date of purchase. If it is from date of purchase from when we got ours, it’ll be another several years before they can legally take those things out.

    Another possibility….the struts needed to be painted, and it is a lot cheaper to paint all one color than paint to match LaL.
