    I agree about Spaceship Earth... Jeremy Irons defined Spaceship Earth...

    I miss Food Rocks. That is really the only attraction I have vivid memories that is gone...

    I don't remember going on Mr. Toad, Horizons, World of Motion, even though they were all around in my lifetime...

    Food Rocks and the original Journey into your Imagination is all I can remember
    Wishin' I was in the World


    What will you CELEBRATE!

    Every time we go to Hollywood Studios, my mom tells me how sad and disapointed she is that the animators aren't there! She remembers them drawing for Aladdin!
    I hope we never lose sight of one thing,
    that it was all started by a mouse.

    Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? Play It!
    I like toy story but that was one of the greatest attractions ever created.

    Gotta go with the Skyway. It was so relaxing and interesting flying over Fantasyland.

    I really miss Horizons and Imagination with Dreamfinder and Figment. Those were BIG losses for me. And I do agree that Jeremy Irons did the best narration for Spaceship Earth.



    You may not realize it when it happens, but a kick in the teeth may be the best thing in the world for you.

    I really miss the 1980's Epcot. World of Motion was an incredible slow dark ride with plenty of animatronics and amazing detail. It was a ride the entire family could go on, like a living motion picture. Not only did it educate . . . it entertained. I feel the same way about Horizons and Spaceship Earth. It seems as though as our society continues to become less into education and learning, the true artistry of some of these attractions has been lost to stimulating thrills and video projections.

    Actually the inside is still open. Inside features several little exhibits on the inside about 2 vikings and the ships they used, it is pretty neat. I go in there when i can. It is usually pretty full. I have seen the inside change so many times over the years.
