RetroMagic Event on 10/1/23 – Celebrating EPCOT Center – Information Sign up!

UPDATED as of March 3, 2023

We are pleased to announce we will host our next RetroMagic event celebrating 40+ years of EPCOT Center in Florida during EPCOT and Walt Disney World’s anniversary weekend September 30th-October 1st, 2023.

The event will be hosted at Disney’s Yacht Club Convention Center with the main stage event, Centorium Archive Display and vendor area all happening on Sunday, October 1st. 

Tickets will go on sale in March or early April 2023 when we also expect to release more information about travel and lodging and any other events planned for the weekend.  Important Travel Information:  Disney has already informed us the Yacht and Beach Club parking lots will NOT be available to attendees due to construction and preparation for the large Gartner technology conference happening in the weeks after our event.  If you are planning to stay on Disney property we strongly recommend you book a room in the Crescent Lake/Boardwalk area or along the Skyliner route (Pop Century, Art of Animation, Riviera Resort or Caribbean Beach) as both options will make it possible for you to walk to the event.  Further, we are working with travel representatives in hopes of providing discounted options for attendees so if you can restrain yourself from booking a nonrefundable room, please do so.  We promise more information very soon!  We have requested alternative parking at the Boardwalk resort but have not received permission yet from Disney.  Other options would be to park at EPCOT and, for those with park admission, walk to International Gateway or take a rideshare or taxicab from EPCOT’s parking lot or from your nearby resort or lodging directly to the Yacht Club.  Accessible parking will be available at Yacht Club utilizing complimentary valet parking for those with valid accessible parking placards or plates.

Now available! RetroMagic logo shirts and hats at

Look forward to another event. Any ideas / target where the event would be held (venue)? Just asking related to where to book a room when my booking window opens. It was great in April to be at Bay Lake Tower with the event at Contemporary. Thanks!

I can’t wait for this event! I’ve attended previous RetroMagic events as well as D23 and you blow the “official” stuff out of the water.
