All New Epcot's 25th Anniversary DVD Production Update & Preview Plus Epcot's 25th Anniversary Gallery Photo Memories Feature.

Hello everyone and welcome back for the Epcot 25th Anniversary themed photo memories feature as promised a few
weeks ago. This edition features part one of a series on Epcot’s 25th Anniversary Gallery. This is a temporary display showcasing concept art, models and historical memorabilia. Please note that these are only highlights as I ended up photographing all 720 plus images in the gallery over many hours.

One of the slightly hidden gems of the exhibit is the ‘Dream Catching Machine‘ from the classic version of ‘Journey Into Imagination‘ hanging overhead. It is very detailed and reminds me of a similar model that was displayed for years in  Disneyland’s pet care center. If anyone knows the story behind these models please email me. I am very curious as to the history and origin of these great miniature props.

The next display features vintage cast member costumes. The plaque reads: “The costumes the Epcot cast members wear help them establish the character of the role they are playing in the show and help guests to understand a part of the story being told. This can be a polyester jumpsuit for a guide on a flight into the future or a recreation of a traditional outfit worn for centuries in a far off land”.

The robot below is from the Horizons – Lifestyles in the 21st Century display. The photo on the left is from the ‘
Horizons
‘ vintage Epcot Center attraction. The next two shots are from the exhibit. It is great to see him again and in such excellent condition. I can only hope his friends share his good fortune. I will be featuring much more from this great exhibit in upcoming Photo Memory editions. Please check back again soon!


Production Update: I am deep in production on my next release Epcot’s 25th Anniversary October 1st, 2007 featuring the Entrance and Rope Drop, Silver Anniversary Celebration, Full coverage of the 25th Anniversary Gallery, Illuminations: Reflections of Earth 10-01-07, Epcot’s 25th Anniversary Fireworks Finale plus bonus footage of the Fire Barge Burn Off and much more!

Florida Recap Part 2, Epcot's 25th Anniversary, Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party.

Hello everyone and welcome back to part 2 of my Florida recap. After
wrapping up all the festivities from the
NFFC
convention and World Chapter meeting it was time to start the
second phase of the trip.

Epcot’s 25th Anniversary – 10/1/07 : This was a day that I could
not wait for. I have always been a big Epcot Center fan and
really was looking forward to the 25th Anniversary. As I entered the
park I noticed the 25th Anniversary logo’s and the classic symbol
of Epcot Center in the flower bed behind
Spaceship Earth
.


The first big event of the day was the Re Dedication of Epcot at
10:01 am. I made my way to the rope and moved quickly to be in the front
row for the presentation. The ceremony was very reminiscent of opening
day but on a much smaller scale. Throughout the day I was able to see
Marty Sklar
give his wonderful Epcot presentation and explore the new
historical exhibit ‘Epcot Creating the New World of Tomorrow‘. I
will be featuring images from this great nostalgic collection in an
upcoming photo memories article. I also contributed to Magical
Mountain’s

The Epcot Thing
‘. The event surpassed all of our expectations with
attendance and enjoyment! My biggest contribution was hosting an
Epcot History Tour
featuring Ron Schneider and Jim Hill
. I enjoyed meeting so many great people that day and I like to think I
made some new lasting friendships!


In the early evening the rains came and poured on the park. What would
an anniversary be without a little Walt’s Weather? Everything cleared
out for the finale and the crowd was really getting excited for the
special anniversary fireworks. One last flash rainstorm delayed the show
but then Illuminations: Reflections of Earth began… The crowd
was ready and after the normal show ended an announcement was made for
the special Epcot 25th Anniversary finale! Disney did not
disappoint as the fireworks tag was spectacular. The combination of
classic Epcot Center
music and the overwhelming volume of explosions was breathtaking!


Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party – 2007 : For the fifth year
in a row I have attended the Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween
Parties. This hard ticket event is my favorite of these after hours
parties. I love the
Halloween
theme and there is always something fun to do or see. Disney has
really gone all out this year with new Halloween decoration all over
Main Street USA.


This years ‘Boo To You‘ parade may just be the best ever! It has
two all new floats from the Pirate & Princess party’s ‘Enchanted
Adventurers
‘ parade. The Pirate ship float features Mr. Smee
as the lookout, Captain Hook behind the wheel and a crew of
pirates!


Closely following Captain Hook’s Pirate Ship is Tick Tock. He is
very impressive swaying down the parade route and appears very similar
to the Tick Tock float from
Disneyland’s Fantasmic
. Another new character for this years parade is
Captain Barbossa
from the Pirates of the Caribbean movies.
Barbossa
strolls the parade route with bitten apple in hand menacing
the kids. Unchanged are the usual great party highlights, Happy
Hallowishes
, Trick-or-Treating, the Villains Mix & Mingle
and the kids Halloween themed dance parties.


Production Update: I am deep in production on Trick or Treat 4
(Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party 2007 Edition) for a release later this
week. Upon completion of the
Halloween
DVD I will start work on my
Epcot’s 25th Anniversary
Celebration DVD featuring the re dedication,
Illuminations: Reflections of Earth, Epcot’s 25th Anniversary fireworks
finale plus the Epcot Center historic display and much more! Please
check back soon for release information and more details.

Florida Recap Part 1, NFFC Florida Convention Plus World Chapter Meeting Featuring Original Dreamfinder Ron Schneider and Final Dreamfinder Steve Taylor.

Welcome back everyone. I have so much to report from this past week in
Florida that I will break it into 2 parts. Please check back later this
week for part two.

The trip started out with the NFFC Florida
Convention
. It was another great event and I had a wonderful time
attending the seminars and meeting many of you! The first day of the
convention was held at
Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort
. This was a big step for the NFFC
as it was the first time it was actually being on Disney property! The
day featured many interesting speakers including Virginia Davis
of Disney’s early Alice Comedies fame, The traditional NFFC lunch
with a Legend Honoring Bob Matheison and Bill Sullivan,
Florida favorites Terri Hardin (below) and Jim Korkis.


Day two was amazing as the seminars were held at
Epcot Center
in the former United Technologies lounge inside the Living
Seas Pavilion
! I applaud the NFFC for this move and hope to
see them utilizing these type of venues for future conventions!



 

The seminars themselves were very interesting and mostly geared toward
Epcot’s 25th Anniversary
being celebrated Oct 1st. Speakers included
Charlie Ridgway
, Dave Smith (below left), Howard Kalov
, Dara Trujillo and the always fascinating Marty Sklar
(below right)!


Saturday featured the NFFC Disneyana Show and Sale. This was a
huge event featuring many vintage props and ride vehicles on display
from the event sponsor Surplus Kingdom. I will be featuring these
vintage items in a upcoming edition of my Photo Memories series.

The next big event was the
NFFC World Chapter
meeting held Sunday night on the eve of
Epcot’s 25th Anniversary
. It was one of the best chapter meetings I have
attended and really got you in the mood to celebrate Epcot’s Anniversary
the next day!. The featured speakers were none other than the original
strolling Dreamfinder (and friend of this site)
Ron Schneider
and the final Dreamfinder Steve Taylor. The highlight
of the night came when Steve was giving his part of their talk and Ron
approached the stage with an actual Figment! This was a surprise to
everyone and put a magical tough on a great evening!


Please check back soon for part two featuring coverage of Epcot’s big
25th Anniversary Celebration
and the changes to this years
Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party
.

Production Update: I am currently in production on my 2007
Edition
of the Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party DVD (Trick or
Treat 4)
for a release later this week then I will start work on my
Epcot’s 25th Anniversary Celebration DVD
featuring the re dedication shot
from the front row, a great multi camera recording of Illuminations:
Reflections of Earth
, the incredible Epcot’s 25th Anniversary
fireworks finale
plus the Epcot Center historic display and much
more! Please check back soon for release information and more details.
