Epcot Future World Then and Now

I think out of all the parks and lands Future World has changed the most over time

I miss wonders of life too. Not to mention Kitchen Kabaret "Veggie Veggie Fruit Fruit"

That's the problem with naming something Future World. Eventually the Future becomes the present (see also the Carousel of Progress).

Glad I am not the only one who remembers it.

No, not at all! I actually sing it all the time, but no one else in my family has any idea what it is besides me! laugh

I used to ride Body Wars until I was sick when I was a kid! *Sigh* The memories...

I loved EPCOT as a kid! In the days before home computers and the internet, EPCOT made learning exciting and entertaining. Body Wars made me feel like I was on a Magic School bus field trip. My school history books came alive in Spaceship Earth. The food on my plate came alive and sang memorable, cheesy songs that I remember still to this day. It's so sad to see what Future World has become. Maybe Figment needs a field trip to the Imagineers' offices.

When I was a kid Figment represented Epcot to me. I miss the original ride. Doesn't it seem like his presence has been diminshed or am I missing something? Loved him, he was so cute! Really sad..... sad

I understand the need to apeal to kids, but Inovations seems like such a waste of space to me. When it first opened it was full of futurisic games and virtual reality. Now it looks like a run down area where they are planning to open a new attraction soon. As far as I can tell though, it isn't going anywhere anytime soon.

J - I feel that way about both Innovations and the post show for Imagination. Both areas used to have amazing things that we had never dreamed of before that have all become reality. Today however they're just sad and tired, with a lack of creativity and poor themeing.

Yeah, Figment's play area feels about the same. There is so much potential there. Wish they could do more.

Bring back the original Journey into imagination and world of motion. I love test track, but that should ahve been an addition. And Horizons. I loved pressing one of the four buttons for the "special" sequence at the end of the ride. I also wish they would change world of Energy as I am no fan of Ellen. Man, I miss those. Only thing I don't miss is body wars because it always made me sick and Captain EO.

Me too, I really loved Horizons. I know some of the technology that they displayed was getting dated, but they could have just updated it. I think that may be the one that I miss the most.

Sad( Honey I shrunk the kids was much better. But meh, I won't go see anything with Mikey Jackson in it because I truly believe he was a whackadoodle. Aside from that, i think I am good.
