Epcot to Celebrate 30th Anniversary on October 1, 2012

Hard to believe, but Epcot at Walt Disney World is celebrating its 30th Anniversary on October 1, 2012.

In honor of this milestone, the park has put together some special presentations for guests to take part in.

Throughout the day, guests can attend Epcot history presentations in World Showplace courtesy of D23: The Official Disney Fan Club.

These presentations are limited in seating:

  • 1pm – 2pm – Designing the Future – Past and Present: A panel of Disney Imagineers remembers 30 years of building tomorrow
  • 4:30pm – 6pm – Epcot: How it Changed the World with Marty Sklar
  • 6:30pm – 8pm – Epcot: How it Changed the World with Marty Sklar

Guests can also attend an anniversary moment at the America Gardens Theatre at 3pm, which will feature appearances by Disney leaders and include performances by Mariachi Cobre and Voices of Liberty. (Seating for this presentation is also limited.)

That evening, the October 1 presentation of “IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth” will feature a special 30th anniversary tag.

All of these events are included with regular park admission, as is the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival, which starts today.

There will also be special Epcot 30th Anniversary merchandise available for purchase.
