I welcome a lush landscape too, reflecting ponds, horticulture, the works... Like it used to be.You know, after looking at that first picture, I suddenly have the urge to see more trees on innoventions plaza. To me, it would tone down the harshness of all the concrete, but not take away to much from the futuristic motif.
Tell me about it. Scared myself with this one!
So clean and clutter free.

Has anyone read his book, Building a better mouse?
Ok I recently was going through pics at mom's house and came across a pic of me near the topiary cake at Mk but with a 200 on top....mom was clueless, anyone have a clue??? I googled it and came up with them celebrating their 200 millionth guest but no pics....any help would be great!!!
WOW...thanks for all these great pics. For a guy who was born in 90, I never saw how Epcot was before then, and even until now, I hadn't seen how the park was before they put in the Innoventions Plaza/Communicore buildings there. WOW, simply wow. A definite blast from the past. I DO remember the entrance to World of Motion though, since it was still there in 95/96 before Test Track came along. Gah!
PS - What and where was that Epcot computer room thing? From where it is, it almost looks like where MouseGear is now.
Yup. A great read for your inner EPCOT geek. He's a great guy, too... I spent about an hour-and-a-half interviewing him shortly after the book came out talking about long nights (or more appropriately, short nights, considering the fact that they were working 100+ hour work weeks) sleeping in the pit at American Adventure and such.
Interesting note: the book never really was intended for public consumption... he was basically printing up his notes and memoirs for friends, but word got out that it was available and it started selling like hotcakes to the EPCOT crazies. (me included)
I'll spare you the mention of the mirrored columns at the base of the Perisphere -- we'll save that corollary discussion for another day.
*climbs back into the bunker*
i belive that was in 87 when the 15th ended wdw celebrated the 200th anniversary of the constitution i believe. that year mk had a patriortic parade & show in front of the castle. now that i think of it signs in mk said star spangled salute to america or somethin alone that line.
Suit yourself....there were mirror columns at the base of the Perisphere?
You can't just throw us geeks a bone like that and then walk away!
Here ya go. A photo I obviously did not take myself (hence the huge honkin' copyright mark). It was posted by a well-respected member over at the PeaceThroughUnderstanding forums. This is one of only two or three clear photos I've seen of the mirror columns.
