    I do like the retro symbol and the symbol for Epcot now, both are good, and I wouldn't mind seeing a new one.

    I do not know if this has been said anywhere or not, but I heard about a new Illuminations show also for Epcot's 25th Anniversary. Can anyone confirm?

    Thanks all! =D
    I heard that Disney is working on a new version of Illuminations but it will not be ready in time for the 25th. it is still a few years away.

    I am hoping that there will be some major announcements on Epcots 25th...like a revamping of the Imagination pavillion and a replacement for that garbage ellen's energy adventure.

    I heard it's suppose to be something called like "Illuminations: Sky Dance". I can completely understand how something like that would take some time, I mean Reflections of Earth is amazing alone, and to top that would take major planning.

    The logo 'change' isn't the only thing coming ... everything old is new again, after all ... and there are many, many things in play now that would have been considered impossible just a few short months ago when Rexie was running the show.

    There is a strong push to bring back the original EPCOT Center vibe from the 1980s ... that hopeful, optimistic, friendly, technologically advanced future that began to disappear in the mid-90s.

    A major statement is going to come shortly if the momentum continues and it's going to be very simple, graceful and unmistakable.

    EPCOT Center is alive and well.

    Oh, and I really wouldn't want to be Phil Holmes post 10/1.

    All of these sounds of good news just make me want to bust!

    I simply cannot wait to celebrate 25 years of the 21st century while getting to look forward to a bright future truely celebratory of Walt Disney's EPCOT.

    Reflections of Earth will run through 2009 without interruption.
    Just last week, a test show was run for the 2nd time this year at EPCOT. It was rumored that this show would be a tag for the 25th. In actuality, this was a test show for the absence of the earth barge (beginning today I think).

    Don Dorsey is working on a project called Sky Dance as mentioned on his website. It is still not clear whether Sky Dance will replace RoE.

    It is still not known if RoE will have a tag on the 1st of October.

    They were testing it last week. We all got voice mails to that effect at Saratoga Springs. Something like "the folks at EPCOT are testing some new fireworks and lights, so if you hear anything in the middle of the night, do not be alarmed"

    Also, for the Sun 9/2 show the seawall launched fireworks were not working/used.

    I thought this would be a good addition to the thread. These are the original logos for EPCOT Center:

    Re: Original EPCOT Center Logo is Returning!

    The original pavilion logos are simple and perfect. My favorites are Journey Into Imagination, World of Motion, and Universe of Energy.

    What's the last logo for? I don't recall having seen it before; is it an alternate logo for Wonders of Life? The second to last one is the original Wonders of Life logo, no? It's the only one I really don't care for. Its design aesthetic is completely inconsistent with that of the other ones, and the human figure simply looks awkwardly splayed, like it's on a torture rack or something. (Or, to employ a recently popularized turn of phrase, it has an unusually wide stance.)

    I just literally spit water out of my mouth after reading this. too funny!!

    These logos kind of remind me of my old girl scout patches. I bet they used to sell them as patches...they just have that look about them.

    I am so excited to hear any new announcement about the park. Those of you lucky to go on the big b'day just have to video tape any speeches etc... And save some of the retro merch for me when I am there 2 weeks later!

    EPCOT CENTER IS (almost) BACK!

    I think that that last logo is the symbol for World Showcase (just a guess since it appears that its a globe behind the human figure.)

    Top row:EPCOT Center, Communicore, Horizons, Journey Into Imagination
    Middle row:The Land, World of Motion, Spaceship Earth, The Living Seas
    Bottom row:Universe of Energy, Wonders of Life, and I have no idea.

    How many did I get wrong?
