A Day at EPCOT Center - 6 stars out of 10

A Day at EPCOT Center - 6 stars out of 10

This souvenir video from 1991 perfectly captures an era of EPCOT Center history that has been lost throughout the years.  While the addition of thrill rides has increased the popularity of the park, this nostalgic look back to the early 90’s version of EPCOT Center displays the park’s original concept.  Walt’s original vision is preserved in this more educational, future-oriented park.  Anybody who visited EPCOT Center in this era will enjoy reliving the afternoon airshow above the lagoon, The World of Motion, Horizons, and the appearance of Robin Hood (the fox) in England.  The shows and restaurants in the World Showcase have changed but the architecture and concept are still the same.  Contrastingly, Future World has experienced a complete overhaul since this video.  Whether this video brings back memories or lets you explore the old EPCOT Center for the first time, this is worth a half-hour of any Disney fan’s time!
