Mission: SPACE is an attraction in the Future World land of Epcot at Walt Disney World in Florida. It’s a 5.5 minute motion simulator ride that demonstrates what an astronaut might experience on a space flight to Mars. It’s set in the fictional International Space Training Center, which is similar to NASA. Since opening in
It’s little secret that the original Journey into Imagination is my all-time favorite Walt Disney World attraction. Without it, you wouldn’t be reading this blog (because it wouldn’t exist), and it’s highly unlikely that Sarah and I would take so many trips to Walt Disney World as adults. The entire pavilion oozed of (as cliche
Not really a Super Bowl photo, but what better way to celebrate the Super Bowl than with a fireworks photo?! Who will be saying “I’m going to Disney World” tonight in Indianapolis? This city loves the Mannings, and many here are hoping to see Eli win another ring. I actually like both the Patriots and

While these topiaries are very cool and wonderfully done, to me, Future World still lacks the holiday spirit that can be found in many other parts of Walt Disney World. The caption above is a
What do you get when you leave your camera’s shutter open for 239 seconds during the fireworks portion of Holiday Illuminations at Walt Disney World? This. This is a single-exposure shot of the fireworks, pretty much straight out of the camera (it has been sharpened and I removed an odd spot of lens flare). Although
Even though we take multiple trips per year, this trip was a long time coming. The anticipation it it actually began 4 years ago, way back in 2007, when Epcot (or EPCOT Center, more appropriately) celebrated its 25th anniversary. In retrospect, I’d like to say we were on the fence about attending that event. However,
The next morning was another early one with the Destination D events beginning promptly at 9:30 am. Since we had purchased a refillable mug, I was going to get as much use out of it as possible, so I headed to the food court with it. Of course, what would a trip to the food
With the 2013 Epcot Food & Wine Festival country booths soon to be announced, as well as celebrity presentations, Eat to the Beat concert performers, special events, and seminars, a lot of you are probably wondering if Epcot’s International Food & Wine Festival is worth your time.
