EPCOT Update…

Just an update for those interested in D23′s EPCOT Center 30th Anniversary Celebration; tickets did indeed go on sale this morning but the higher-tier tickets (which included an evening dessert party) sold out almost immediately. In well under a minute, apparently. The good news is that $65 tickets remain for purchase, and those offer all the same information and historical goodness at a fraction of the calories.

Speaking as an EPCOT nerd, it’s nice to see such interest. This kind of goes back to what I said when the Citrus Swirl and the Orange Bird returned; the better such geek-friendly things perform, the more we’ll get of them. And hopefully Epcot park management will see the success of this event and try to capitalize on it with a slate of activity on the 1st…

And then they’ll announce the return of Horizons, World of Motion, and Journey into Imagination, right? RIGHT????

  • Sigh. Would have been nice to eat creme brulee with Marty Sklar in the SSE lounge. I knew I should have camped out for those tickets.

    We might look back at the WDW 40th Destination D event as a watershed. If that had bombed, I don’t think you’d see the Orange Bird out of mothballs, or this nerd-centric offering for the EPCOT (sic) 30th.

    Glad to see you’re writing more these days, btw. Keep the hits coming!

    Don’t need Journey Into Imagination back, we need Journey Into Your Imagination gone. And something with a plan built instead.

    But, we do need ImageWorks reopened. Because why on earth is it closed?

    Honestly, Journey Into Imagination is the one attraction from 1982 EPCOT Center where I wouldn’t be at all disappointed if it returned in its exact original form. It is very much a timeless classic dark ride – EPCOT Center’s Pirates of the Caribbean/Haunted Mansion. The fact that they got rid of it when it wasn’t at all dated for the crapola that’s there now is a travesty.

    Horizons and World of Motion would both need at least some updating if they were return to WDW today; content-wise if not the attraction technology (but hopefully both).
