NEW: EPCOT 40 Tumbler Captures Nostalgic Details
Today marks the 40th anniversary for EPCOT, Walt Disney World’s second theme park, and the merchandise did not disappoint. With exclusive tees, pins, tumblers and more, the collection exudes countless nods to the park’s legacy
Obviously, this stainless steel mug is no exception! The bold red that pops in both the lid color as well as the geodesic design of the bottom made this tumbler stand out today at Creations Shop.
On the front, Figment dances across the park’s new logo, a nod to the original symbology used at EPCOT when it deubted on October 1, 1982. Today’s date and “EPCOT 40” adds to the exclusivity of the collectible.
Though dominated by an exceptionally reflective silver and red, the front of the cup also introduces shades of blue as the image’s colors fade into a deep royal purple pigment.
The cooler shade also accentuates the cup’s bottom with the geometric, modern pattern continuing throughout the border.
Though these types of tumblers often use an opaque design for the lid, this anniversary cup features a translucent red plastic instead.
MickeyBloggers spotted the tumbler today at Creations Shop when they first entered EPCOT bright and early. The tumbler retails for $27.99.
Beyond Tumblers: Creations Crowds Cranked Up Quickly
Luckily, MickeyBloggers Greg, Elyssa and Jared are early risers. They gathered at the front gates to EPCOT just before 7:30 a.m.
As some of the first guests in the park, they managed to beat the crowds at Creations Shop, which gathered a wait hovering around three hours as of 10 a.m.
Stay tuned as they bring us the “40 Years of EPCOT” dedication ceremony taking place at 11 a.m. at the American Gardens Theatre in World Showcase.
