Happy Halloween!

Boys and girls of every age

Wouldn’t you like to see something strange?

Come with us and you will see

This, our town of Halloween

This is Halloween, this is Halloween

Pumpkins scream in the dead of night

This is Halloween, everybody make a scene

Trick or treat till the neighbors gonna die of fright

It’s our town, everybody scream

In this town of Halloween

I am the one hiding under your bed

Teeth ground sharp and eyes glowing red

I am the one hiding under yours stairs

Fingers like snakes and spiders in my hair

This is Halloween, this is Halloween

Halloween! Halloween! Halloween! Halloween!

In this town we call home

Everyone hail to the pumpkin song

In this town, don’t we love it now?

Everybody’s waiting for the next surprise

Round that corner, man hiding in the trash can

Something’s waiting now to pounce, and how you’ll…

Scream! This is Halloween

Red ‘n’ black, slimy green

Aren’t you scared?

Well, that’s just fine

Say it once, say it twice

Take a chance and roll the dice

Ride with the moon in the dead of night

Everybody scream, everybody scream

In our town of Halloween!

I am the clown with the tear-away face

Here in a flash and gone without a trace

I am the “who” when you call, “Who’s there?”

I am the wind blowing through your hair

I am the shadow on the moon at night

Filling your dreams to the brim with fright

This is Halloween, this is Halloween

Halloween! Halloween! Halloween! Halloween!

Halloween! Halloween!

Tender lumplings everywhere

Life’s no fun without a good scare

That’s our job, but we’re not mean

In our town of Halloween

In this town

Don’t we love it now?

Everybody’s waiting for the next surprise

Skeleton Jack might catch you in the back

And scream like a banshee

Make you jump out of your skin

This is Halloween, everybody scream

Wont’ ya please make way for a very special guy

Our man jack is King of the Pumpkin patch

Everyone hail to the Pumpkin King now!

This is Halloween, this is Halloween

Halloween! Halloween! Halloween! Halloween!

In this town we call home

Everyone hail to the pumpkin song

La la la la-la la

Disney Begins

On this day in 1923, Walt and Roy Disney started up the Disney Brothers Studio- the enterprise that would become Walt Disney Productions then The Walt Disney Company. Walt Disney arrived in California with just $40, a suitcase and a dream. The company he would co-found with his brother would grow to become a media giant worth $150 Billion today.

Walt Disney’s Never Built EPCOT

On October 1, 1982, Walt Disney Productions opened “Epcot Center”, daringly billing it as the fulfillment of Walt Disney’s last dream. The truth, however, is that Epcot Center  as built had absolutely nothing to do with Walt Disney’s EPCOT.


Walt Disney wanted EPCOT to be a real City. The idea of the Florida project being a “Vacation Kingdom” didn’t exist until 1967- the year *after* Walt Disney passed away. It was the vision of Roy Disney, who didn’t think that EPCOT would be viable. Those who enjoy the current Walt Disney World Resort have Roy Disney to thank.

The first action undertaken by Roy Disney after his brother passed away was to cancel EPCOT. From that point on, the company tried to make people forget all about the original plans, despite the model that had been placed in DISNEYLAND and later moved to Florida’s Tomorrowland.




By the mid-1970’s, the company was planning a second theme park in Florida, following Roy Disney’s master plan. The company was considering two possibilities- Future World, a park where future technologies could be explored and World Showcase, a park where guests could explore the world from the relative safety of a Florida swamp.

These plans were put on hold, however, when Roy Disney’s handpicked successor Card Walker sought to handle the biggest complaint received in Florida- that EPCOT hadn’t been built. Since Walt Disney’s original plans were, like Disneyland in 1955, difficult to understand without seeing them in person, the public thought that EPCOT was supposed to be a theme park. So Card Walker stopped all other work at Walt Disney Imagineering and ordered staff to come with something (anything) that could be passed off as EPCOT. That’s when Future World and World Showcase were pushed together to become EPCOT.
