The Dawn of a New Disney Era

Walt Disney World Resort

EPCOT Center

Future World

SpaceShip Earth


The only structure of its kind anywhere, EPCOT Center’s colossal geosphere will tower 180 feet above the entrance to Future World. Once beyond this architectural wonder, the Future World visitor will know no boundaries.


This shot is another personal favorite for me from our recent trip (although it isn’t without its faults). From the exaggeratedly long leg on the right that leads to the geosphere (and is partially obscured by palms), to the shadows and light from those same palms, the rays of light from the sunburst that shine all the way to the right border of the frame(!), the palms leaning in on the left side of the frame to completely envelope the frame, heck, even the light falling on SpaceShip Earth I think looks great. Maybe (definitely) I am just patting myself on the back a bit too much, but I think it really embodies that spirit of EPCOT Center, pre-opening. Hopefully 2011 will be the Dawning of Another Disney Era.
