D23’s EPCOT 30th ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION

Posted on
On Sunday, September 30, 2012, D23's Epcot 30th Anniversary Celebration will whisk D23 Members back to a time touted as when "the 21st century begins" -- those early Epcot years when guests first marveled at "Astuter Computers," "Smellitzers," and the novelty of "riding on sunshine," and were awed by a massive geodesic sphere called Spaceship Earth. Tickets will be available for purchase on June 21 at 10 a.m. on D23.com.

Tree of Life at Disney’s Animal Kingdom

Posted on
When the Imagineers began thinking about Disney's Animal Kingdom in 1989, they knew this new park would also need an icon to represent it to the world. But what would this be? The Tree of Life was the answer. This icon would impart the message of the Animal Kingdom with a single glance. A gigantic tree would represent the abundant plant life of the planet and the many creatures that would be carved into its bark would symbolize the vast array of animals that call Earth home.

A Blast From The Past: Dining at the 50’s Prime Time Cafe

Posted on
The '50s Prime Time Cafe is a nostalgic tour back to the 1950s, a time of classic television sitcoms such as "I Love Lucy," "Leave It To Beaver," and "Father Knows Best." In fact, a meal at Prime Time makes you feel as though you have stepped right into one of these television shows. This is a restaurant where everyone is treated like family. While Mom is back in the kitchen preparing your lunch or dinner, you are waited on by an "Aunt" or "Uncle" and are introduced to the rest of your "Cousins" (your fellow diners) who are sitting at the tables next to you.
