TBT - Golden Trip One - EPCOT (repost)

TBT

The news is not surprising, but it is still sad.

Illuminations will be ending in the summer of 2019. Read the news HERE.

I went digging around in my archives and found this posting when I was taking all of my trips to Disneyworld in 2007

I began and ended Golden Trip One at EPCOT.

After checking in at Pop Century, I was early enough to head over to EPCOT to validate my annual member pass and stick around for the evening showing of "Illuminations:Reflections of Earth", my favorite Disney fireworks show.

My final day at Walt Disney World, I returned to EPCOT and walked around the entire park taking photos of all of the pavilions and some of the attractions. I'm looking forward to visiting EPCOT during the International Flower and Garden Show in May where EPCOT displays all sorts of beautiful flower and shrub arrangements.

I love this overview of Walt Disney's life by Glenn Beck.

I have become very disillusioned with the Disney corporation - in my opinion they have betrayed Walt's dream and his imagination and have transformed themselves into something Walt would have NEVER allowed let alone lent his name to.

I am still a fan of the Man and his imagination and spirit of creativity and innovation. I can only hope that the company will someday recapture those elements.
