    The term "forced perspective" really doesn't imply that it is being used to make something larger or smaller. It can go either way; usually, in the context of a Theme Park or Film, it is used to make something that is small and/or two-dimensional seem larger and/or multi-dimensional. But the term "Inverted Forced Perspective" is not really used in the "real world" of design.

    (and Google only finds it (or related words) in relation to American Adventure and one Sci-Fi movie)

    But why get picky over such meaningless details? :)

    Who's up?

    Talking I'm here!

    Somehow my subscription was lost (maybe when the board changed) and I didn't get any messages.

    Easy one since I'm tired, who 'hosts' the new 360 movie about China?

    EPCOT Center's opening ceremonies was broadcast on television on what date and as part of what TV series? Bonus 1: What made it different from all other episodes of that series in the 1982 through 83 season? Bonus 2: Who hosted it?

    Date's right, but I'm pretty sure it was broadcast on Network TV (don't remember the network, though). It was part of the "Wonderful World of Disney" series.

    But I'll give it to you.

    I don't think so. At least, that's not what I was looking for. Anyone else with a guess?

    Absolutely wrong, where wrong means correct.

    Bonus 3: Any related WDW importance to the date 10/23? (not to drag this out too much more...

    The Disney Channel did not start broadcasting until April of 1983, so it wasn't on there. Pretty sure it was CBS. October 23 was the dedication of Walt Disney World in 1971.

    Yup, October 23 was the dedication of both EPCOT Center and Walt Disney World and the Magic Kingdom.

    The other bonus was that all of the other Wonderful World of Disney programs were either Animated or televised showings of feature films. Tiggerguy, you're up, I think.

    The date is correct. The second part of my question has something to do with the Morocco pavilion's interior.

    A maalem is a Moroccan artisan. 19 maalems were sent to Epcot by the King of Morocco to help design the pavilion and artwork.
