What's Happening At EPCOT Today To Celebrate EPCOT's 40th Anniversary

Today October 1, is an important milestone for Walt Disney's Florida Project, back in the day Walt called it his Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow, now in 2022, we simply call it EPCOT.

Sadly to celebrate such an important milestone in a theme parks lifetime, Walt Disney World is putting little effort into the big event, with little more than special food and drink items for sale, and of course a huge collection of merchandise.

Today October 1st, guests arriving at the park are receiving a special commemorative park map, as well as a bright and colourful commemorative poster.

As for decor, the entrance plaza poles have been wrapped in special EPCOT 40 vinyl, there is EPCOT 40 banners spread throughout the park, plus the barges are lit up showing the EPCOT 40 logo.

Inside the EPCOT 40 merchandise filled Creations Shop you will discover a nice retro Minnie and Mickey display.

Today's 40th entertainment comprises a special 40 Years oF EPCOT ceremony taking place at 11 am in the American Garden Theater, and there will also be a special Beacons of Magic show this evening, beginning at sunset.
