Celebrate 40 Years of EPCOT With Yummy New Food Offerings!

As many people are aware, for the past year, Walt Disney World Resort has been celebrating its 50th Anniversary. While all Parks are celebrating with special shows, merchandise, and food offerings, it’s really only the Magic Kingdom that is 50 years old. Disney’s MGM — now Hollywood — Studios didn’t open until 1989 and Disney’s Animal Kingdom wasn’t around until 1998!

However, there is another Park that is also celebrating an anniversary this year. That’s right, we are talking about EPCOT! EPCOT opened on October 1, 1982 — exactly 11 years after the Magic Kingdom.
