The Walt Disney Company is celebrating 100 years in business, and the anniversary commencement is still happening. Throughout the year, Guests have participated in the celebration at all the Parks at Disney World. With so many surprises and limited-time events, Disney is now making One Park the center of the fun.

EPCOT was an idea of Walt Disney’s with the hope that it would never truly be finished. The purpose is to constantly evolve and change over time to be the most innovative Park. Beginning in late September, Disney is ramping up the celebration at EPCOT with Disney100.
