    How long will Epcot's retrospective display stay open?

    Just what the title says. I never was able to find it when I was there. But my mom and I are "planning" tentatively to go for Christmas in '09. Do you tihnk it will still be there, like Disneyland's 50th display is still here?

    It closed a month or two ago which I find sad. It's something that I think would have been nice to just leave up. It couldn't cost that much to maintain.

    As was said previously, it closed this past October. It was only designed to stay around for a year and that is what it did. I wish it would've stayed around longer, but it didn't.

    Aw, darn it (stronger language is actually called for).

    Why not leave it up? I agree it couldn't cost too much to maintain. And Disneyland's has been up for three years now! Not a big deal.....

    Why is it each park gets stiffed exactly where it shouldn't?

    But who am I kidding, Disney is just barely starting to understand the nostalgic charm of Disneyland and using it to their advantage. Who knows when they will realize this about Epcot.

    It really is a shame they decided to close it, it was an amazing look at Epcot's innovative history.

    I know it's not quite the same, but "One Man's Dream" at Hollywood Studios offers a similar experience, just from a wider perspective.

    It was a nice little exhibit. Only only complaint is I wish it had been bigger and a little easier to find for those who aren't as familiar with EPCOT as us regulars.

    It is true that it is closed, but the timeline of EPCOT history is still on the wall. We were lucky to have the exhibit as long as we did, it was only scheduled to be up for 90 days originally.

    As far as I know it is. I'm heading back on the 15th, I'll be sure to check it out. I'll let you know when I get back.

    I had originally heard that it'd be there through the end of last year - I'm glad we had a full year out of it. And I agree that it should have been better publicized.

    Are you talking about the display room behind Club Cool (Used to be Ice Station Cool)?

    If so we were there in August and I got some good pictures inside.
