Epcot Details 25th Anniversary Plans

Published: September 19, 2007 at 9:49 AM

According to the Orlando Sentinel, Epcot is now going to have a public rededication ceremony on October 1st. In addition the park will have special retro guide maps, an exhibit hall, and a special version of Illuminations: Reflections of Earth. Although it's not the grand celebration that most Disney fans are hoping for, it is a step in the right direction.

Yeah, at least it is something!

It would have been better to rehab all of EPCOT by redoing some of the attractions. Some actions have been taken:

New Canada movie
New Spaceship Earth
Nemo and Friends at the Living Seas

Need to do:

Fix Imagination Pavilion
New Wonders of Life
A new Country would be nice (Greece maybe?)

Eh. I'm just glad that Epcot is constantly updating. It's nice.

EPCOT needs a LIM-launched hypercoaster in a glass tunnel that launches through the lake and erupts behind the American Experience. Whoosh behind the lands of the World Showcase and come back to Earth under Spaceship Earth. The line would extend to MGM.

I think it's great but a little late. I was thinking of going this year because of the anniversary, but Disney, earlier this year said that nothing was going to be done to celebrate the occasion. I made no plans to go.
