Epcot's 25th Anniversary Celebration Photo Gallery - Part 2

Epcot 25th Anniversary Gallery - Explore the fascinating journey that brought Epcot from dream to reality. This exclusive exhibit showcases concept art, models and memorabilia from the early days of Epcot. This exhibit is set to run through late December 2007.


"Epcot - Creating the New World of Tomorrow" signs appear on both sides of the Epcot Gallery entrance. They feature the picture of Walt Disney measuring himself against the Epcot plans and saying he's 6 miles tall. I learned this little bit of trivia later in the day when I attended "A Conversation with Marty Sklar". During these sessions, we learned the "inside story" of the birth of Epcot from one of its principal designers, Disney Legend and Executive Vice President, Walt Disney Imagineering, Marty Sklar. These sessions took place in the Circle of Life Theater in The Land.
