A Day of Celebration as Epcot Turns 30

The story of EPCOT is truly remarkable.  After all it stems from the incredible visionary Walter Elias Disney himself.  A park dedicated to humanity’s future in both technological and cultural terms.  Yet the future can seem so bleak at times, much like the hard edged triangles that make up Spaceship Earth but what Epcot has shown us in the past 30 years is that if we dream and do, the future is just as impressive and just as smooth as the floating geodesic dome appears when seen from a distance.  But the story of EPCOT on this 30th Anniversary is not about the park itself but rather the lives it has changed.  You could just feel it amongst the park goers in attendance, they all felt this day was special and most had fallen in love with the park for different reasons.  But no matter why, they were there to show their heartfelt appreciation for the theme park that they know is a ton more than just that.  And together it was they who made the event truly special and honored the work of so many who placed this beacon of hope onto this earth right here in central Florida.

So join us as we share a bit of that Epcot 30th love with over 100 photos from the big day…
