What We Love Most About Epcot’s Legacy
It’s difficult to talk about Epcot without talking about so many aspects and attractions that have since come and gone. Here are some images that concur up those memories.
Okay…admittedly we didn’t talk about the Mickey arm. But it is part of the legacy.
This little guy was a member of Kitchen Kabaret, a forerunner of Food Rocks, both of which have been retired.
Figment is something almost everyone loves. And that popularity continues today.
In the same pavilion as Figment’s, unique 3D films have been shown such as Magic Journeys, Honey I Shrunk the Audience, and Captain EO.
Dinosaurs have been a apart of Epcot from the beginning. It still needs some.
David and I both agree that the offerings in Wonders of Life were fantastic.
This guy was a member of the ensemble for Horizons, perhaps the most popular attraction to have ever been retired from Walt Disney World.
Saw this holiday photo featuring the Disney characters on a double decker bus. The buses ran for years until the annual festivals became more popular.
Hard to think of IllumiNations as part of the legacy. It seems like it was almost yesterday…
What We Love Most About the Current Epcot
Spaceship Earth still continues to be a guest favorite at the park, with lines throughout most of the day. It’s a quintessential part of visiting Epcot.
David & I both love the Land Pavilion.
David and I both agree that the California version of this attraction should be reinstated, at least in one of the three theaters. Still, it’s a favorite.
One doesn’t experience World Showcase from the promenade. Rather, one has to enter and study each of these lands, such as here at Canada.
One of my favorite places to visit at Epcot is the Mexico Pavilion.
I still call it Rio del Tiempo, but I do love the Gran fiesta Tour Starring the Three Caballeros, along with their historic animatronics from the Mickey Mouse Revue.
Do you prefer Maelstrom or Frozen Ever After?
Guests love walking around World Showcase, especially during festivals such as the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival.
The American Adventure is also one of the most important places to visit if you’ve never been to Epcot. You haven’t done Epcot if you haven’t experienced this attraction.
The great preface of this is the privilege of seeing the Voices of Liberty singing under the rotunda at The American Adventure.
Japan day or night is stunning and is the epitome of what makes World Showcase so amazing.
No question that nighttime is the best time in World Showcase.
The Epcot Experience is a perfect segue between the Epcot of today and what is coming next.
What We Love Most About the Future of Epcot
There are so many changes planned for Epcot. I especially am excited for the new centerpiece of the park, which will have a more park like feel. All of the changes coming to what will be World Celebration is essential for this part, which will be the spine of Epcot.
Here’s a model looking down on what will be the Festival Pavilion.
