Saxophone from Jazz Musician, Charlie Parker, Arrives at Epcot’s “The Soul of Jazz”

February 1 was a big day for Epcot! “The Soul of Jazz: An American Adventure” opened to guests at Epcot. We were there to check out the experience, and you can check out our full review here. We also shared the news that Jazz Legend, Louis Armstrong’s trumpet is part of the exhibit! And today, even more excitement… as the saxophone from Jazz Musician, Charlie Parker arrives!


As shared via Walt Disney World Cast and Community Facebook page: “It was all smiles and soul at EPCOT this morning as we welcomed the arrival of a very special saxophone from jazz musician Charlie Parker. The instrument was added to “The Soul of Jazz: An American Adventure” exhibit from the American Jazz Museum in Kansas City – and Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas and the museum’s Executive Director Rashida Phillips helped with the special delivery. Be sure to bebop over to the pavilion and check it out on your next EPCOT adventure!”

About Mike and Jamie Sylvester

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 16 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
