Epcot's 25th Celebration Photo Gallery - Part 1

Wow!! I don't know where to start. In the last 6 days, I have attended the Food and Wine Festival Preview and Opening Day, the dedication of the new exhibit in The American Heritage Gallery, Party for the Senses and Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party. And finally, I spent an entire day in Epcot to celebrate the Silver Anniversary, arriving at 7:30 am and leaving the park at 11:30 pm. I will save the story of how I ended up in Epcot 2 and 1/2 hours after the park's official closing time for a later blog. I have over a 1000 pictures to sort through but sadly, I have to work (the real job) later today and tomorrow. I will be adding blogs with photos as quickly as possible so please be a little patience since my head is still spinning from one of my best Disney trips ever!

I do want to take a moment to thank all the friends, both old and new, that I had the honor to spent time with over the past few days. Every one of you helped make this trip even more magical then I could ever imagine.

We also received a free anniversary button when we entered the park.

Special Limited Edition Merchandise was a big hit and the lines formed very quickly at this kiosk outside of the Electric Umbrella and at the Pin Station. When cast members realized how popular this merchandise was, they quickly opened MouseGear to help move us through the lines faster. Pins, t-shirts, watches and Figment plushes were available.
