The Disney100 celebration at the Disneyland Resort kicked off in January with the debut of “Wondrous Journeys,” “World of Color – One,” and much more, but now it’s Walt Disney World’s turn to join the party.

Disney100 at Epcot

As the center of  Walt Disney World Resort’s Disney100 celebration, Epcot will debut a new Disney100 Spaceship Earth display later in 2023 that showcases favorite Disney stories.  

 “We’re excited to have Spaceship Earth ring in the biggest celebration yet, the 100th Anniversary of the Walt Disney Company,” said Jason Read, show lighting designer principal for Walt Disney Imagineering. “We’re inspired by many things from the history of the company, its characters, theme parks, and shows – even the Disney100 opening logo that plays before our feature films during this anniversary. You may see homages to everything from the ‘Wonderful World of Disney’ television show opening to Mickey balloons that we sell on Main Street, U.S.A.”

Epcot will also be the place for photo ops with Mickey and Minnie in their new platinum outfits. Details on when and where you can meet them will be announced soon.

“The inspiration of this cake pulls from the rich purple and platinum colors used for the Disney100 celebration,” said Walt Disney World chef Amanda. “The drapery on the sides of the cake represents the traditional bunting that adorns Main Street, U.S.A., for special occasions. And of course, Mickey Mouse is proudly represented on the front of the cake because as we all know: ‘It all started with a mouse.'”
