Video Memories


Unfortunately, YouTube has not yet upgraded its system to be compatible with the new Blogger/Google login.

Until that happens, here are some terrific links to YouTube videos that serve as testaments to the spirit, enthusiasm, excitement and promise that EPCOT Center held for so many years. Enjoy!

Wow, these videos take me right back to the better days of when Mom would dress us all in the same shirts to tell us apart. I really miss the days of when Epcot would open in the morning and we would race to Horizons and World of Motion. Then of course we would have lunch at the Odyssey. I miss those days.

you know these are great video representations of what EPCOT should be, was, and hopefully will be again..

It will sadden me greatly if this is the last we see of epcot's greatness..

That was a blast. Thanks so much for that. I visited in '85 and then not again until 2003. This brought back memories of the spirit of the place and my great-aunt who brought me there.
