Epcot Guidemap – 25th Anniversary Celebration – 10/1/07

I obtained this guidemap thanks to my good friend who attended the Epcot 25th Anniversary celebration on October 1, 2007.

Walt Disney World – A Pictorial Souvenir – 1983

This is the early 1983 pictorial souvenir book for the Walt Disney World resort. To me, 1982 - 1992 is perhaps the greatest era of Walt Disney World, and this book is a great showcase of the start of that time. You can download the pdf of the book here. .

This is a complimentary comic book that was given out at the Universe of Energy in the 1980s.  It is pure propaganda for Exxon and fossil fuels, and... Continue Reading →

EPCOT Center – Future World – 1987

This is a picture I took in 1987 by the middle of CommuniCore West.  Do you remember when there was water in the main plaza?  It was so peaceful and brought a different element into the area.  I'm not sure when these were taken out and paved over.  It's a shame that they were removed.
