    I was first inside EPCOT Center!

    I am reporting live from Innoventions Plaza.

    As the title says, I was the first non-tour guest welcomed through the gates of EPCOT Center. My little brother and I were chosen as the pirates (yes, Jack is everywhere he should not be) who countdown the opening of the turn stiles.

    More to come, and cell phone photos, later in the day!

    Re: I was first inside EPCOT Center!

    We just joined a small crowd in front of the Fountainview Stage. The sun is glaring down quite hard. It seems more people were interested in Soarin' as their first stop. I am glad we rode yesterday as FastPass will probably be gone in a few minutes and the Stand-By worse. More to come after the rededication ceremony.

    I know I said I'd report later, but I had one quick thing I wanted to make sure I report. The area music in Future World is classic EPCOT Center. I'm not that well versed, all I've recognized is "Listen to the Land".

    The rededication ceremony just ended. No announcements made. The forced mentions of "The Year of a Million Dreams" were met unenthusoastically. All in all a nice event. Now I am off to Mission: SPACE and Test Track (how unclassis of me).

    Nothing? What did they just go, "Welcome to Epcot Center, celebrating it's 25th year today. Oh and btw did you happen to know about our YOAMD promotion?"

    Please tell me they didn't use this wonderful occasion to market YOAMD?!

    Rain is moving in.

    Summer, your description is not far off. Only Jim McPhee said "EPCOT Center". There was a small Cast Member appretiation, with The Land still sporting its logo. CommuniCore Fountain (they did say CommuniCore) was "restarted" with water from around the world by World Showcase Cast Members.

    I'm surprised they didn't ask if anyone wanted to pre-order a video!

    Great updates. Thanks for the play-by-play! Can't wait to see some pictures.

    Re: I was first inside EPCOT Center!

    I wouldn't lok here for pictures. I forgot the camera at my room so I am using my cell phone.

    We just finished looking at the small gallery exhibit. The marquee uses the old font and flower logo, sans "Center". It is a nice little display showcasing EPCOT Center old and new. It reminds me of the preshow at "First 50 Magical Years".

    A small aside. I am continually impressed by the condition of the models. I have to make similar models for school and they can warp and wear quite easily. I think it is great that they are preserved and occasionaly displayed.
