Electric Umbrella Review

Electric Umbrella is a counter service restaurant in Epcot at Walt Disney World. This review features food photos, and our analysis of the value & quality of this Future World hot-spot. Like most in-park quick service restaurants at Walt Disney World, it participates in the Disney Dining Plan, but it does not accept the Tables in Wonderland card for a


For the Walt Disney World photo I’m sharing today at the bottom of this post, titled EPICOT VI, a little history is in order. This is my sixth version of the same shot concept, which is a follow-up to one of my favorite photos ever. If Jaws 6: Jaws in Japan and Rocky V taught us anything, it’s that

Journey into Imagination Lit Up at Night

There’s been a slowdown in content ’round these parts lately, but trust me, this is really a good thing in the grand scheme of things. Rather than writing new posts that will be posted immediately, I’ve been focusing my limited free time on the EPCOT Center retrospective series (yes, it’s a series now!). I’ve received

Another Spaceship Earth Night Photo

With each Spaceship Earth photo I post, it becomes more and more difficult to come up with something to say about the shot. I’ve said all of this before, but it bears repeating… Spaceship Earth is my favorite photo-subject at Walt Disney World. It’s an amazing and unique icon. It is the embodiment of what

“It’s Not Horizons…” Photo

Mission: Space is not Horizons. For this reason alone, I don’t think it will ever get a fair shake among serious Disney fans. To be sure, I’m not saying that Mission: Space is superior to Horizons. While I have incredibly vivid memories of Journey into Imagination, World of Motion, Body Wars, and other EPCOT Center

The Incrediblesorail – Epcot Monorail Photo

Today, I’m excited to announce Walt Disney World’s new experimental prototype monorail of tomorrow (or “EPMOT” as Disney has dubbed it) for the Epcot monorail line: the Incrediblesorail! Much like Elastigirl, this monorail is able to stretch its length around the entire center of Epcot, covering the full length of the monorail track within Epcot

Journey into Imagination Reflection Photo

When you’re at Walt Disney World, sometimes mother nature gives you lemons that you must make into lemonade. More literally, sometimes there’s a torrential downpour that you should view as a positive and turn into awesome reflections photos. On the first night of our February 2012 Walt Disney World trip, most guests had left Epcot

The Living Seas & Monorail Photo

On our December 2011 Walt Disney World trip when we were at Epcot, Sarah headed to to The Land right away to grab FastPasses and to hit Sunshine Seasons (smart!) for breakfast. I wasn’t hungry, so I headed to this spot over by The Living Seas pavilion to grab a shot of the monorail (inspired

The Dawn Of A New Disney Era Photo

The only structure of its kind anywhere, EPCOT Center’s colossal geosphere will tower 180 feet above the entrance to Future World. Once beyond this architectural wonder, the Future World visitor will know no boundaries. We had a bit of time to kill one morning before lunch at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge at Walt Disney World; it
