Favorite "past" attraction at EPCOT


#1

Let’s reminisce about “old school” EPCOT!

There have been so many changes at EPCOT since it’s opening and I miss ALL the attractions that have now become a thing of the past.

So which was your favorite and why?

Whoops, there was suppose to be a poll here…

  1. the OLD “Journey Into Imagination”
  2. World of Motion
  3. Horizons
  4. Living Seas (“Seabase Alpha”)
  5. Food Rocks/ “Kitchen Cabaret”
  6. Captain Eo
  7. Communicore East & West
  8. the “Making of Me”
  9. Body Wars
  10. Universe of Energy (PRE-Bill Nye & Ellen)
  11. Cranium Command

-am I forgetting any?

great topic Jess, and as you know I’m an Epcot freak and old school Epcot holds a special place in my heart. Just off the top of my head, I’m going to say WOM just because of all the great memories it holds for me.


#3

I loved the Kitchen Caberet, is that the right name? With the singing/dancing food? I loved the broccoli. I remember seeing it when I was 14 or so and I just loved it!

Food Rocks/Kitchen Kaberet were one and the same I think. It just went through a name change with maybe some small changes. They were in The Land pavillion. Remember the song “Living With The Land”?

“Living with the laaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand, living with the land!”
:laugh:

I miss so many of those!! I think I miss Kitchen Kabaret most of all though. I remember being compeltely transfixed by that show when I was little. I don’t know what it was but I LOVED it. I want it back. :crying:

Would I trade Soarin for it? No way! :laugh:


#6

Sometimes I think I’d trade TT for WOM though. As cool as TT is, WOM brings back such great memories.


#7

This is probably the HARDEST Disney-related question for me to answer b/c old school EPCOT is like the core and beginning of my Disney obsession (wow, I am a dork)

I could give my opinions on ALL of the above attractions and why I miss them to death. Although, all things considered, I would DEFINATELY have to say my “most missed” attraction is “World of Motion.” I LOVED all the scenes in that attraction, the music, the smells, EVERYTHING! I especially loved coming out of the attraction and seeing the cool cars! :wub:

The attraction I DO NOT miss at all is everything in the “Wonders of Life” Pavillion, that was the beginning of the end of old school EPCOT for me, haha. I never liked Body Wars at all, and being an awkward pre-teen during the “wonders of life” days it was just NEVER comfortable for me in there. :blow:


#8

I woud trade TT AND Mission Space to have ONE of those attractions back. Although, if EPCOT got something mega interesting and cool for the 25th I may learn forgiveness.haha


#9

i miss the old Journey into Imagination…at least figment is kindof still there


#10

I definitely miss Food Rocks/ “Kitchen Cabaret”. It was so cute and so much fun. I know it was not in Epcot, but in the MK, but I still miss If You Could Fly/If You Had Wings. Back in the day it was my favorite attraction and still sadly missed.


#11

Great Topic! I also miss so much of the original Epcot, but I would have to say I miss Horizons the most. I remember going on Horizons over and over on my 6th grade trip. What great memories!


#12

There were some great ones but I would have to say the OLD "Journey Into Imagination. Strictly because of the song, I think I still have that song in my head. "a dream can make a dream come true! from just one spark… from me and you! imaaaaaaaginaaaaation imaaaaaaginaaaation! :tongue:


#13

Ah the old Journey into Immagination I loved that one, Dream finder and his figment puppet that he had when he was out in the parks.
Horizons was soo cool I loved how it was the concept of the future, cause I loved sci fi.
Which is why I loved Captain EO as well, back when Michael was Michael, instead of being replaced by an alien! Hey its a good theory…
WOM I remember going up that spiral ramp and then the caveman blowing his feet, but aside from that I don’t remember much…sad.
I do miss old epcot but I dont remember what communicore was except that it was replaced by innoventions. Oh but the old universe of energy was kinda droll before ellen. I just liked it for the dinosaurs though!
I guess sometimes I just wished they could keep the old with the new, seems that aside from SE most of epcot is going to be replaced with newer attractions…


#14

Journey into Immagination and Horizons!!!


#15

I miss Journey into Imagination so much too!


#16

I really miss WOM and Horizons - the scenes, the music - such great memories. I loved them and miss them still. :crying:


#17

Yep, WOM and Horizions for me too.


#18

here’s my favorite “past” attraction at EPCOT

  1. Universe of Energy
  2. Captain EO

#19

I don’t know about anyone else but i was TERRIFIED of Captain Eo when I was a kid. I liked Michael Jackson, and that cute flying little monkey/animal thing with the long tail but there was some witch or something with LOOOOONNNGGG nails and I remember it FREAKING me out EVERY time!!!


#20

I’m terrified of Michael Jackson NOW
