Disney Shares More Details About Epcot's 35th Anniversary

Many theme park fans (including us!) are currently planning on visiting Epcot on October 1 for the park’s 35th anniversary. While we are sure this will be another great event, the Walt Disney World Resort didn't share any specific details about the special offerings that will be available on that special day... until now. Similarly to what happened in past years, Guests can look forward to commemorative park maps, exclusive merchandise, an amazing fireworks show, and more.


Here you are additional details about this very special celebration (park offerings are subject to change without notice):

1) Commemorative Guide Map
Be sure to pick up a commemorative Epcot Guidemap and Times Guide on your way into the park. They’ll be available at the park’s Main Entrance, at International Gateway and Guest Relations.

2) Anniversary Celebration
A special celebration will be held at the Fountain View stage at 10:01 a.m. Gather to celebrate the 35th anniversary of Epcot with Mariachi Cobre and Voices of Liberty.


3) Exclusive Anniversary Merchandise
Guests visiting Epcot on October 1 will have the chance to grab anniversary merchandise as a part of the “I Was There” collection (see Steven Miller’s previous post for a full look), which has been specifically designed for this year’s milestone. Items in the collection will be available only at a “pop-up” shop (which will be open for one day only/while supplies last), located just past the Art of Disney location at Epcot on October 1. Additional Epcot 35th Anniversary logo merchandise (not a part of the “I Was There” line) will be available in select merchandise locations at the park, such as Mouse Gear and on the Shop Disney Parks app.

4) Special Edition: IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth
Conclude your day at the park by attending a special edition of the park’s nighttime fireworks show, “IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth,” which begins at 9 p.m.
