Sun Rises Over The Land Pavilion at Epcot

posted on May 25th, 2015 by Jennifer Fickley-Baker, Social Media Manager


Have you ever noticed the ceiling inside The Land pavilion at Epcot? Next time you’re rushing to Soarin’, waiting to take a trip through Living With The Land, or grabbing a bite to eat at Garden Grill or Sunshine Seasons, be sure to check it out. The ceiling is festooned with four balloons that each represent one of the earth’s seasons.

Each balloon, winter, spring, summer and fall are decorated differently – and the real morning sun shining through makes a lovely accent!

Our 24-kickoff to The Coolest Summer Ever has officially concluded here at the Walt Disney World Resort. A screening of “Tomorrowland” with 500 of our readers? A few trips on Seven Dwarfs Mine Train? Two performances of “Main Street Electrical Parade”? Dole Whip at 3 a.m.? I can’t imagine a better way to kick off what will for sure be the Coolest Summer Ever at Disney Parks.

The Coolest Summer Ever live stream has concluded.

We’ve officially reached our midpoint of the Coolest Summer Ever 24-hour kickoff event. So far we’ve seen a ton of guests showing off their #DisneySide in some pretty amazing costumes, tagged along while Nate snacked his way through the park (he’s finally finished, by the way), and Steven is continuing his mountain challenge at the park. We also hosted a Disney Parks Blog reader event that included breakfast at Cosmic Ray’s and a screening of “Tomorrowland.”
