Even More Vintage EPCOT Center Future World

I don't know about you but I could look at vintage EPCOT Center pictures all day long!

A side view of Spaceship Earth and Earth Station building.

The famous Bell Systems Network Operations Center scene from Spaceship Earth

From inside Earth Station. Notice the WorldKey Information kiosks in the back and the original Epcot guest services desk on the left.

Dreamfinder! The more I get to know people that grew up going to Walt Disney World, the more I understand how much this classic attraction is missed. I was lucky enough to ride the original Journey into Imagination on my first trip to WDW in 1996 (a couple of years before it closed forever).

An outside picture of the Imagination pavilion. Notice the beautiful original fountain on the right that was replaced with it's current, less exciting, pyramid fountain.  

I get that Test Track is one of the most popular attractions in all of Walt Disney World but it's too bad Epcot had to lose almost all of it's classics like World of Motion. Also, don't you think this pavilion looks a lot better without all that Test Track crap out in front of it? It is amazing that they gutted this building completely and installed Test Track within the same structure, considering that they are two completely different experiences.  

The entrance and queue to Spaceship Earth. I wish I had a higher resolution version of this picture but the book I scanned it from is very small.

  1. I could look at vintage EPCOT photos all day too. I took my 5 year old to Disney World last year for her first trip. I was sad that we could not experience all the fun I had when my parents had taken me as a child. I wish they would revamp future world. It used to be awesome. Now its kinda of extinct. At least upgrade the Universe of Energy. The current film is over 1o years old and irrelevant now.
