EPCOT Celebrates The Big 3-0!

 

Walt Disney World’s 2nd theme park opened on October 1st, 1982, and it’s letters stand for “Experimental Prototype Community Of Tomorrow”, and Walt designed it to represent a ‘conceptual utopian city of the future’ – and it was originally designed to be a city itself, but when Walt passed, the idea changed into a Park that would embody the ideals and values of Walt’s “Epcot city”

 

Guests who were lucky enough to visit Epcot today received a special commemorative button and guide map. For more information about the celebration happening at Epcot check out the Disney Parks Blog
Personally, I have grown to appreciate Epcot more as an adult – the culture of the World Showcase (and the adult beverages offered there too!), and rides like Spaceship Earth and The Land that would have been boring as a kid are actually really fascinating to me now!

 

Happy Birthday Epcot – and here’s to many, many more!
