i was there the Summer before Epcot Center opened

Epcot's 35th anniversary
The day after i return from Glacier National Park, i plan to visit Epcot to say, “i was there.”


i was there the Summer before Epcot Center opened.

In fact, i arrived January 24, 1982.


The next day i was scheduled for Disney Traditions, the new Cast Member orientation class.

A few months later, tram tours around Epcot Center’s perimeter were offered to Cast Members and their Families.

My Dad and Stepmom were staying at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort.

We have Super 8 movie footage (somewhere) of the whole place under construction.
