Disney World is all about celebrating SOMETHING.
Although Disney World’s big 50th anniversary celebration is over (and that one lasted 18 months!), we’re now celebrating the Walt Disney Company’s 100th Anniversary. We also recently celebrated Animal Kingdom’s 25th anniversary, but today, EPCOT is celebrating a random holiday.
Okay, it’s not THAT random, but, apparently, today is World Bee Day! This day is set aside to celebrate and acknowledge the role that bees play as pollinators in the ecosystem. Yes, bees are IMPORTANT. So today, EPCOT is celebrating all things bees by giving guests a fun Bee Hat. Yes, a BEE HAT! It even has bee antenna on it.
How fun is that? It comes courtesy of one of the EPCOT Flower & Garden food booths, the Honey Bee-stro. Btw, if you’re at EPCOT today, you should stop by the Honey Bee-stro and enjoy some foods including honey provided by the bees we’re celebrating, like the Chicken and Waffles and Honey-Mascarpone Cheesecake. YUM!
It’s funny, too, because Disney World has had issues with bees in the past. Because of bees, the Rooftop Bar at the Coca-Cola Store in Disney Springs had to temporarily close due to bees. They also once invaded one of the Joffrey’s locations in EPCOT during the EPCOT Festival of the Holidays. But, hey, we’re still all about letting them have this one day of celebration, and we’ll proudly wear our new bee hat.
Disney World is just full of surprises…apparently today is National Bee Day and a Cast Member was handing out these bee hats! Happy Bee Day everyone (and bonus points if it’s your B-Day)! pic.twitter.com/RidNLoTGsH

So if you happen to be in EPCOT today, be sure to grab your bee hat, and say hi to Spike when you see him (and he’s ALL over EPCOT right now thanks to the EPCOT Flower & Garden Festival scavenger hunt).
