So What Exactly Is The Epcot Thing?

Epcot has always been a huge part of Nathan Rose's, (founder of Magical Mountain, FlickDirect, and Magical Definition) life. As a young child of 8 when Epoct Center first opened to the public he was in love. Upon hearing that the 25th Anniversary was coming up Nathan was beside himself with joy eagerly anticipating the events that Disney would have to celebrate. His dreams of a 25th Anniversary celebration were crushed when Disney officially announced back in January of 2007 there would not be any sort of celebration. However, this would not deter Nathan. In February 2007 Nathan along with his team at Magical Mountain and

Magical Definition, along with Tim from The Magic In Pixels came up with a plan to have their own celebration, "The Epcot Thing". We invite you to join us on October 1st, 2007 in celebration of Walt Disney's Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow.

The day has many fun events and meets scheduled including Beverlyfest, an Illuminations meet and possibly as Adventurer's Club meet. Activities begin at 7:00 a.m. and continue through the ENTIRE day so not to worry! You will have plenty of time to stop by! For more information, please go to the official Epcot Thing Website

Please note if you are planning to attend the any events of "The Epcot Thing" Magical Mountain would like to encourage you to please R.S.V.P. to so we may get a rough count on how many people will be attending.

About Tim Devine
Tim Devine grew up at the Jersey shore, minutes from Atlantic City. The first toy that he can remember having was a Mickey Mouse plush along with a Mickey Mouse lamp in his room. After his first trip to Walt Disney World® in 1985, he was hooked. Photography became a serious hobby in 2003 and became a second profession in 2004. The Devine family are members of the Disney Vacation Club and frequent the Disney theme parks often. Tim's Internet presence started in June of 2005 when he was introduced to blogging (Tim Devine's Disney Photo Blog) while in California and about a year later The Magic in Pixels was created in response to the overwhelming positive feedback that the blog generated. Back in 2006 appearances at various Disney events gave Tim a stage to showcase his photography and formally introduced him to other members of the Disney online community. Tim's portfolio can be viewed at his website,, and his prints are available for sale in the Magical Mountain Emporium. Mr. Devine and his wife, Karen, live in southern New Jersey with their son, Billy.
