    I personally prefer the paycheck one myself, because if I have money, I can buy all the darn tacos I want.

    Re: EPCOT Center

    It will always be EPCOT Center to me, even in its current watered down state.

    I love DAK and haven't made it to Tokyo yet to see TDS, but the EC of the 1980s was just such a WOW!!!! kind of experience.

    Re: EPCOT Center

    I haven't been to EPCOT in almost {gasp} 2 years. I am going back in May and just have one question...

    Are those big ugly little metal photo gravestones still lining the way to the Ball? I miss flower beds and how you could jump up on the sides of them to walk (run) down into the park.
    You are splashing in the stream
    of an unremembered dream,
    you are searching through the eye
    of a seeker in the sky

    Since Epcot is supposed to look to the future.

    But not matter what, it's still Ep-ity-cot to me.

    Last time I was there (May 2005), they were there. I hate them too! The flower beds were so much more attractive. Disney needs to move the gravestones to their own little area, away from the front of the park.

    I'm going back in less than 3 weeks! Maybe the IFAGF flowers will disguise them some.

    Re: EPCOT Center

    I think I will be putting my photo on the gravestone in June. Space is still available, right?

    I have been putting it off because they are so ugly, but...

    Yes, unfortunately there is plenty of room left.

    Then I join the list of dead in June. Mourn me when you visit.

    Yes Pressler's Graveyard of Lost Millions is still there.

    Though I feel worse than the loss of flower beds is the loss of the EPCOT Fountain, replaced by...well water basically. You really can't call that new thing much of a fountain.

    I have the original "Inside WDW" with Scott Herriott on video. They were big on saying Epcot 94, and then Epcot 95. I was really glad that they dropped that year - just not necessary.

    I did the same thing and now I regret it.

    But next time! Even though I miss the flowers there.

    Do I have to guess my date of death? Or can they leave it blank

    I'm telling ya, there's just something totally cool about going up and visiting your picture, knowing that in all the days and weeks and months since your last visit, your very own smiling face has been right here to greet the millions of fun loving park stormers. I hope they keep it for many years to come!!!

    Come to Epcot 06! It's like Epcot 05 with less to do!
