  1. It’s ridiculous that Disney seems to do more to celebrate Disney+ at the parks than they do the actual anniversary of the parks.

    • Agreed. I was there on 10/1/21, and it was the most unremarkable of days. EPCOT turns 40 soon, and I bet there is just as little pomp for that as well. Such a disappointment…
