EPCOT is officially celebrating its 40th Anniversary and there’s a ton to do. Whether you’re looking for snacks to bite into or items to buy, the celebration has something in store for everyone. But it seems like merchandise was one of the more popular offerings today, as the lines were sorta…wild.

If you wanted 40th Anniversary merchandise today, you weren’t alone. Creations Shop was the place to be this morning!

…and waited to get their hands on the celebratory merchandise.

Are we there yet?

The line wrapped all around the park, providing guests in the queue with different views of EPCOT. When we got in line, a Cast Member told us it would probably take 2 hours to get through — we timed it and it only ended up taking 1 hour and 5 minutes.

Wrap around

This is no 6 hour line for a Figment popcorn bucket, but it was a pretty long wait!

Of course, this is pretty common for the first day of a celebration. We expect these lines to calm down very soon and we’ll keep you updated.
