An EPCOT Center Souvenir

Way in the recesses of our cupboards, we stumbled upon this little gem from EPCOT Center: a souvenir mug. Perfectly preserved, the silver finish looks elegant and striking even to this day almost 31 years later. I wish the same could be said for the park itself. Sadly, its lost its way, and Walt Disney World is all the worse for it.

My dad has a glass just like this one from EPCOT. I try to use it whenever I can!

I agree about EPCOT, particularly Future World. I keep hoping for signs it will recover, but I'm not seeing it. I'd settle for even minor upgrades to Energy and Imagination at this point.
