Greetings EPCOT Fans!T There has been a lot of talk over the past few months about EPCOT's upcoming 25th anniversary this year, and many folks have expressed desire to see some sort of commemorative event or aknowledgement. Many have expressed a little dissapointment in knowing that to date, it seems that Disney does not have plans for anything relating to EPCOT's 25th. Now i know it's early still ( it's only February after all...) but i got to thinking a month or so ago......why can't we just celebrate ourselves? So this was the fun idea i came up with....and i have already mentioned it in the recent "Do you care about EPCOT's 25th" poll thread currently here on WDWMagic.com. How about having a "fan rally" of sorts on the actual day at the Park? A meet up....of everyone who would like to just get together with other Park fans and celebrate EPCOT's 25th ourselves in reasonable ways? I've been a huge fan of EPCOT since i first visited in mid-83'. Everything about the place back then had me captivated, and i would say that experience, and the multiple ones afterwards, inspired and enpowered me....and STILL does to this day. I will be there October 1st, it's a personal "must do" for me, and it would be a lot of fun to meet up with other enthusiests of all-things EPCOT and have a fun day together! We can show up at a certain time, at a certain place at the Park, and have a grand day out!Now when i say "fan rally" don't think i mean the trouble-making sort. No no no no.....that's not what i mean at all! Last thing i would want to do is cause the Disney Team issues. I am thinking more along the lines of a nice, good clean fan meet-up where we all meet up and spend the day doing nothing but get totally into EPCOT and celebrate iit's 25th in our own way.So here's what i have in mind.....if you plan on visiting WDW around the end of September/early October this year, why not meet up in front of Spaceship Earth on October 1st at a certain, pre-determined time. Just imagine the fun at meeting lots of new people who are just as enthused about EPCOT as much as you are? I'm talking about the serious fans....the ones who listen to "Illuminations: ROE" in there cars to work, driving with one hand and "conducting the symphony" with the other. I'm talking about those out there that know all the dialog to the ride through attractions, and sing along with Figment on every verse. I'm talking about the REAL EPCOT Park nutters who call this Park "home"! YES! Is that you? Well it sure is me....and i'd love to do something to at least show a gesture of appreciation for 25 years for exploration and creative discovery.So what do you think? Sound like something you would be interested in? Harmless good ol' fashioned fan meetup in honor of EPCOT's 25th Anniversary, on the actual day, maybe even the actual time? Was'nt it 10am that the Opening Ceremonies started back in 82'? We can all meet up....go off and ride SSE together, take in more rides, then maybe have lunch somewhere in WS together and for dessert, have Birthday Cake! Yum! Afterwards we can stroll around and reminicse about all the changes the Park has gone through, and ponder what the future will bring. Share stories about your experiences at the Park through the years...just general hanging-out and socializing. Of course the capper to the day will be the viewing of "Illuminations" Everyone coming will probably already know the theme music by heart, so by all means hum away ( and "conduct" all you wish....so long as it does not take away from other Guests' experience) I'll be there on the 1st for sure....with my retro EPCOT Center t-shirt on....and pin lanyard of course. How about you? Any interest in this idea? Again, this is not meant to be some hostile takeover or anything ( LOL!), just a great excuse to get together with fellow fans and recognize this milestone in our favorite Parks history. "Feel All The Wonderful Motion!"
