    I have to say while I love the open atmosphere in that photo above? I'm grateful for the covered walkway in front of Mansion, mainly for rain or heat factors. I know most people complain but the vegetation that's grown in and the covered walkway really add to the eerie feeling to me.

    I think the covered walkway works well both for protection from the environment and that it just feels claustrophobic and dark, pulling you into the mansion. I think wandering around in bright sunlight, all the way to the entrance, would make it somewhat harder to get into the ambience of the thing. It's hard to be creepy in the Florida sunshine.

    Not sure if that helps you. LOL

    Here is a pic of those books, you can pick them up at most thrift stores or garage sales now a days.
    OMG! I had those books when I was kid in the late 70's/early 80's! I think I still have a few of them packed away somewhere too.

    I loved the World of Motion. I hate Test Track and think its pretty much a useless ride.

    The thing that I loved the most about 80's Epcot was it was an actual learning experience. I'm not saying there isn't anything like that now but no where near as immerse as it was then.

    Re: WDW: Old Photos and Ephemera Thread

    Here is an assortment for today:


    Is this still accurate, that there is a straight shot view of the castle from Tom Sawyer Island? Very odd photo...


    Cranium Command inside Epcot Center, now defunct if I am correct.


    Lobby of the Contemporary. I do hope they've changed out those charming green seating pads...


    This one I am sure will be recognizable to fans and admirers. I am sad to say I never experienced the Adventurer's Club for myself.

    Now only is it defunct, but the entire Wonders of Life pavilion it was housed in as well. Interestingly, that must be an old promotional photo, unless there were multiple versions of the ride, because actual video of the actors was used during the main show, not the cartoons shown.

    It is promotional, this image came from the Disney News magazine. I barely remember this show from the one time I saw it...

    Here's the complete show, for anyone interested (Video originally by Martin Smith, but the Vimeo version was linking weird):
    YouTube - Cranium Command pt.1

    YouTube - Cranium Command pt.2
