EPCOT 30th Anniversary Merchandise Preview


EPCOT's anniversary is always a little bit more special to me then possibly most people, since it also marks the anniversary of my first trip to Walt Disney World.  So this fall's celebration of the 30th anniversary of EPCOT is one I’m definitely looking forward to.  It's all going to kick off on October 1, 2012 and Disney has been releasing images of some merchandise they'll be releasing to commemorate the occasion.


Some items celebrating the 30th anniversary have been found a little early at Mouse Gear in Future World.  The shirts shown below are new items under the “Epcot 82” banner.


Coming this fall, will be four new shirts and a mesh baseball cap.  There is a good chance one of those caps will be returning to Boston with me this fall.


Of course we can't talk Disney merchandise without mentioning pins. Here are some samples, including the Passholder-exclusive limited edition and open edition pins.  The stained glass effect of the “I Was There” pin that has Mickey Mouse and Figment sporting their 1980s outer space attire is a very nice touch, and the stained glass effect looks even better on the super jumbo-sized pin.


Another item that I'll be coming home with is the "toothpick holder" (or shot glass, as they're used for at my house) set that has logos from some of the Future World pavilions, including Horizons.
