    Re: EPCOT Center turns 25 in one year!

    It's too late for a full-blown celebration a la WDW's 25th or Disneyland's 50th, but there is still time to create something of value.
    Disneyland's 50th? Yeah, but it doesn't deserve the worldwide treatment of Disneyland's 50th. Too late for something like MK's 25th? No, we've still got a year and there's lots of rumors that things actually will happen they're just not being announced or leaked yet because they're really pushing the year of a million dreams right now. Notice that this celebration will conveniently end just in time for Epcot's 25th to begin.

    I'm optimistic that something is planned, not on a worldwide scale, but then again, I don't want it to be.

    Re: EPCOT Center turns 25 in one year!

    the year of a million dreams lasts until dec 2007. I doubt there will be any big push for epcot's 25. there hasn't been any big celebration for other park anniversaries, just the anniversaries for the entire resort. and this year they conviniently forgot the 35th. but then it would be hard to celebrate the 50th of one park and then run right into the 35th of the other. could be a bit confusing especially with the ads that suggested WDW was celebrating it's 50th. whoever heads disney marketing really should be canned. those commercials could have placed the company in trouble for false advertising,

    Re: EPCOT Center turns 25 in one year!

    I'm still willing to send letters however, here is the one I have crafted to send.

    My name is Kevin Carter and I am a huge fan of the Walt Disney World resort and most of all, of EPCOT Center itself. I visited Epcot shortly after it opened as a young child and my mind soared with the visions of the future. It truly was as magical as anything the Magic Kingdom offered and quickly became my favorite park. Even with the loss of such wonderful rides as Horizons and World of Motion, Epcot is still the number one theme park in America to me. It's mixture of optimism for our future and its message of global unity is something that has stuck with me for all of my life.

    The 25th is coming up next year just as the Year of a Million Dreams is set to end. It is my most ardent desire that Epcot receive the celebration that she is so deserving of. There is no building more iconic to me than the form of Space Ship Earth, no area more beautiful to me than the countrys around the lagoon, and nothing more fascinating than the vision of a great tomorrow that Epcot Center strives to give its guests each and every day.

    I am truly delighted with the tlc that Epcot has seen as of late with the addition of Test Track and Soarin', the reworking of Mission Space to make it enjoyable to all guests, and the upcoming Living Seas with Nemo ride which is due to open this month. I do sincerely hope that it does not end there however. Please let the fans of Epcot have a year to celebrate the wonderful 25 years that Epcot has given all of us. Even if we are not able to receive a new country to the World Showcase or a functioning Wonders of Life pavilion, a celebration worthy of the magnitude of Walt's ultimate dream of Epcot is all that I ask. That we take the time to remember and celebrate the dream of Walt's life, of his Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow. And even though Epcot as we know it is not exactly as Walt had invisioned, it still stands as a wonderful monument to Walt's revolutionary vision and I would hope that it would not be overlooked during its monumental anniversary, it's 25th birthday.

    no it needs to have a piece of exploded mickey on it somewhere. His hands already on SSE, his ears on the tower, his hat in MGM, so maybe an exploded nose on top like a big ole cherry.

    You forgot that Stitch has to dump 500 rolls of toilet paper all over it too. And honestly, if I was Stitch, and I saw such a thing, I'd do that too!
