    EPCOT Center pre-opening poster

    I have no idea how I managed to post this in the Debate Lounge --- it should be in the Collecting Lounge... MODS--- can we please move it??? Sorry!

    Last year a thread was started about the EPCOT Center pre-opening poster with Spaceship Earth against a dark background.

    Here's the thread: http://micechat.com/forums/general-c...lp-needed.html



    Well, I just wanted to share a link to a site that is selling reproductions of the poster, along with its companion poster. Disney Pre-Opening Poster 18 x 24 [I-17] - $19.95 : Posters57.com, Your Source for Posters

    The site is selling the poster for $19.95.

    I ordered one and was satisfied with the quality. The colors aren't as vivid as I had expected from the picture on the web site, but I never saw one of the original posters that Disney put out, so I'm not sure how close they are. In the original thread, Opus1guy noted that the posters were on thin, glossy paper. The re-print I received isn't on terribly thin paper. It isn't heavy stock, but it isn't notebook paper, either.

    The poster is shipped in bubble wrap, a heavy-duty tube, and a poster tube box. You definitely get your money's worth on shipping fees.

    If you were one of the people looking for one of these posters, I would recommend this re-print... it's probably not the best, but it'll do

    Enjoy

    That's a nice piece of memorabilia. No argument from me.

    Lucky for you there are mods that cruise through the debate lounge on a regular basis.

    (ppppst... next time go ahead and report it if it happens again just in case we don't catch it.)

    Thanks for the link, MasterGracey. I'll definitely be picking up both of these posters as soon as I can.

    Hmm... I saw one of these (original, I believe) on eBay not too far back. Sadly, the photo they provided didn't show the artwork for this poster as well or else I would've snatched it up.
    I worked at Walt Disney World as a member of the Disney College Program in Spring 2008 and Summer 2010. Now, I build software, design live events, and frequently make the short trek from Costa Mesa to Disneyland with my Annual Passport in hand.
