Obscure Star Wars reference in Land pavilion: Kuat Shipyards

Twitter users @OliRage @elby2007 found a Star Wars reference in Epcot recently. At the Land pavilion, not far from the Garden Grill restaurant, there is a scarecrow, some bales of hay, and a crate.



If you turn the crate upside down, the Aurebesh (Star Wars universe) writing is now something you can translate.



It says: Kuat Drive Shipyards.

This is in reference to Kuat, where the large Imperial Star Destroyers are built in the Star Wars universe. A bit more obtuse than most inside jokes in Disney World, but there you have it!
