REWIND: Perambulating EPCOT

Remembering a visit to EPCOT from back in October 2016.

A sampling of photos from wandering around Disney World’s EPCOT for the day.
Spaceship Earth, the futuristic ball looking thing by the entrance, contains a fun ride detailing major developments in communications history told with animatronic characters. More of this later.
Scenes from the first Space Shuttle launch and possible futures for the program are highlighting in the Robert McCall painting, Reach for the Stars, on display in The American Adventure.
The Voices of Liberty a cappella group perform in the rotunda of The American Adventure to entertain guests waiting to enter the auditorium.

From left to right starting at top: Benjamin Franklin and Samuel Clemens (Mark Twain), Thomas Jefferson and Ben Franklin, Civil War photographer Matthew Brady, Theodore Roosevelt and John Muir, Franklin and Twain again, this time on the torch of the Statue of Liberty, a Depression-era scene, and complaints about the treatment of Native Americans to balance out the program a bit.

Riding along on the boat through the Living with the Land exhibit at Future World: the green houses where large winter melons are grown along with a lot of other fruits and vegetables and a red tunnel where Tilapia and shrimp are grown. Much of the food produced in the Living with the Land exhibit supplies the restaurants throughout EPCOT and Disney World.
