    Spaceship in Spaceship Earth

    So sorry to hear that news Martin. I have been a part of this thread since the first week it posted way back when I was in college. IMO it’s the best thread in all of WDWMagic and shows how many fans came together to help each other out, find clues, and research this beloved attraction.

    Creations Shop opening this summer

    While I love and miss EPCOT Center, I think we must realistically remember that the Centorium Shop was pretty dated when it finally closed. Also, hexagons in a curved store? The crazy carpet, overhead lighting in a caged grid. It also had character merchandise and character displays in the...

    News Disney mask policy at Walt Disney World theme parks

    I know no one can hear the tone of my voice, so please know I’m not “shouting” or anything like that. It is a fact, this virus has been politicized in not only the US, but countries around the world. We have ripped each other to shreds from conversations with our family, friends, and even here...

    Spaceship in Spaceship Earth

    I can't imagine being the CM or contractor that was responsible in the 1994 SSE refurb for going through the hatch at the top of the window set, hitting the floor and coming face to face with an animatronic that had been sealed behind glass since 1982, only to then remove her costume....and...

    Spaceship in Spaceship Earth

    Did a quick mockup to show how the window looked compared to the vehicles. It's a massive structure.

    Spaceship in Spaceship Earth

    Interesting to note: In the final concept art of the Space Station, you can see a figure in a black suit operating the controls inside “the window”.

    They’ve begun removing the fins that were spaced out on every few peoplemover columns.

    Spaceship in Spaceship Earth

    By the way, how was the astronaut on the smaller satellite illuminated? Just from the bright light of the Earth projection, or something else? The WorldKey Information photo of it shows it bathed in blue light, but I have a feeling that was for advertisement purposes. Everything I've seen of...

    Spaceship in Spaceship Earth

    I look forwarding to seeing the new video this weekend! To think it all started with a person's memory and this photo.

    Spaceship in Spaceship Earth

    And they painted over the window with black paint but if you were to scrape it off you’d see an animatronic skeleton and eyes with no skin or wig.......

    News Carousel of Progress Closed

    They’re not meant to realistically age. Not even in the original version. The children get slightly older in each scene. That’s it. Each act has always been what that family could have been like/doing in a respective era.

    News Carousel of Progress Closed

    If we start in the 50s or after we lose two original scenes that date back to Walt Disney and the fair (Acts 1 and 2). By restoring acts 1-4 reasonably back to their world’s fair look and opening narration explaining we will travel thru the era in which Walt lived and that the family represents...
