LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. – The Epcot 25th Celebration Gallery, an exhibit showcasing archived images, music, artwork, storyboards, design models, costumes and memorabilia from Epcot’s opening day on Oct. 24, 1982, is now open at Epcot. The 1,300-square-foot gallery is located inside Innoventions West.
Some of the notable items on display, all lovingly restored for the exhibition:
the original model for Spaceship Earth, featured just inside the exhibit entrance
original models of three World Showcase pavilions – Germany, Canada and The American Adventure
the original “Dreamfinder’s Dream Machine”
the Horizons robot character
The gallery also celebrates the people who brought Walt Disney’s dream and the legacy of Epcot to life. The exhibit includes several elements used by Imagineers to illustrate the design process, including concept art, color boards, maquettes, props and costume design.
