    Re: Does anyone else miss the OLD Epcot?

    Hi there. I'm not sure if I commented on this or not, but I 'definitely' miss the 'original'
    EPCOT Center. It just had that wonderfully ethereal feel about it, especially Futureworld. The ideas, and possibilities of the place made you really take an interest in
    future technologies, (and the past as well).

    I just wish someone would have told me that there were actually 'two' versions of the
    future: reality, and the dream. (Sorry, I get too sentimental sometimes).

    Later. Peace.

    Re: Does anyone else miss the OLD Epcot?

    WDW was meant to be ever changing, but I think the idea was to add more ideas than to take away. Unfortunately, the new trend seems to be oriented towards watching things happen on screen and pumping adrenaline, rather than creating living wax museums and slow moving rides that the entire family can enjoy together. I also miss the "we can do anything" optimism that used to pour from the soundtracks of these attractions. It is still there, but it is murky and watered down. I don't mind Mission Space and Test Track, I just wish they could have been added without taking away a classic. Even though Food Rocks is gone, I think that the integration of Soarin' without completely removing The Land is a good example of how such integration could take place.
