W October 3, 2017 I can’t remember much about this ride except it was my dad’s favorite during our family trip to WDW/Epcot so we went on it two times. And I’ve had the It’s Fun to be Free song stuck in my head for a long time. Reply Ann July 3, 2017 Thanks for the memories! Reply Jeff September 26, 2012 I have such vague and limited memory of World of Motion, I visited Epcot only once or twice before it closed, so it’s great fun looking through these pictures. Thanks much for taking the time and energy to organize and publish these posts! Reply Bob Rowan September 25, 2012 World of Motion was my favorite of the original EPCOT Center rides and I always looked forward to seeing future transportation in Transcenter. Test Track was a big letdown for me the first time I rode it. The ride was ok (and I have somewhat high hopes for the new version of the ride), but knowing it sits on the grave of a great original attraction will probably always be a little disappointing. I just scanned in and published some of the old ride brochures. I think I have one you missed! I’m not sure if I can post links in your comments, but those brochures are available at this address: http://blog.practicalwdw.com/2012/09/epcots-30th-world-of-motion-brochures.html Reply Rich T September 25, 2012 But I *like* elaborate, lengthy, slow-moving Audio Animatronics-based attractions! 🙂 Ah, well… I’d almost forgotten about the Water Engine Theater — that was an incredibly clever little show! Reply Tom Bricker September 25, 2012 I think most people reading this blog probably like slow-moving AA attractions. The general public, on the other hand… Laura B September 25, 2012 The building across from WoM (as seen from the picture taken from the second floor walkway), with the red/yellow/orange panels…is that Universe of Energy? OK, in reality, I know it is UoE. But I’ve never really paid attention to the sides of that building before! How interesting! Thirty years of visiting, and I can’t believe I’ve never noticed the design! Reply Steve Burns September 25, 2012 The dry humor of Gary Owens’ narration and the whimsical visuals of World of Motion were a nice departure from some of the more serious offerings, such as Spaceship Earth, Universe of Energy, and the Land. That humor and whimsy is missed these days. Reply Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
