Marty continued to reminisce about the early days of speaking with Walt about Epcot.
He went on to say: "I'll never forget that opening day of Epcot…”
Marty: “…One of the things I remember the most was a water pouring ceremony to start the Comunicore fountain behind us. Don’t you think it would be wonderful if we could do something like that today?"
Tracy: "Today we have the incredible privilege of having our own cultural representatives right here at Epcot. It's time to meet the representatives of the countries of World Showcase."
Tracy: "The cultural representatives are carrying colorful banners representing the countries of World Showcase: Japan, Morocco, France, United Kingdom, Canada, America, Italy, Germany, China, Norway and Mexico.
Tracy: The cultural representatives are "carrying many different types of water containers, representing famous rivers or bodies of water."
For each country, the name of the container and the body of water was announced as the processional continued.
"The Pouring of the Water"
Music, fireworks and fountains filled the air.
All too soon, the rededication came to an end….
Jim MacPhee publicly thanked his team that created Epcot's 25th Anniversary events.
The Celebration 25 fan group then gathered for a photo in front of the fountains and Spaceship Earth.
Jim MacPhee and Walt Disney World Ambassadors Michael and Lowell joined the photo op!
