    I checked it out on Wednesday! It's very cool inside, you can definitely tell they are going to keep adding more and more. And that huge illuminated globe tells you about updates for Spaceship Earth.

    I just had fun driving a virtual racecar of the future and trying to stop Dr. Havoc and his Havoc ray from destroying a city!

    I hope not. That is the start to my Disney vacation, so I guess I'll have to wait till I get there.

    Hey guys, here are just 2 quick pictures I snapped yesterday when I ran into Epcot.

    The 3-d body building interactive "game". 3-d glasses are on the sides for you to use while you play!



    And the giant blue globe that scrolls SE news. It said "Tell us where you want to go...", so I guess the rumors are true regarding it's revamp!

    [

    I have to say, I'm pretty excited to see all this new stuff come in and replace some of the older technologies, after all, that's what EPCOT was/is all about. Innoventions has a bunch of new things to play with since last summer, too! Looks like they're finally keeping up with the times!
