    I know I have been on a World of Motion kick lately...

    Here's an amazing video I found online that includes the history of the pavilion, the entire ride through, from multiple angles, and the Transcenter, something most videos I have seen do not include. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

    Yes. I know he posts on a website, and I have heard of them before, but never seen them before. Truly amazing. Really made me sad when I saw it too, since I have really been missing World of Motion lately.

    interesting video thanks for posting it. I actually don't recall ever being on that attraction so I don't really have any connection with it. Honestly I don't miss it from what I have seen. It may have served its purpose when it was built but I feel it is better left in the past.... that and also cause I like Test Track.

    Watching a that video reminded me of all the reasons I hated EPCOT when I first went in 1988, half way through the day my sister and I were literally bored to tears crying about wanting to leave and return to MK. Don't get me wrong there were some highlights for us that day like Imagination (even if we didn't want to go on it at first) and Captian EO but that was pretty much it I didn't even get to see the whole park infact I don't think I even made it to World Showcase till I was an adult. And keep in mind that I do appreciate Epcot now more than I could as a child even if that wand is hanging over the park's best piece of architecture.

    Very interesting, because it looks like we are the same age, and I remember as a kid loving World of Motion more than anything at EPCOT, even Imagination. I even remember refusing to go on Horizons for the first time because I loved World of Motion so much; of course that quickly changed once I rode Horizons. Just shows how different people have different points of view.

    And for the record, I like Test Track too. I just miss World of Motion more.

    Looking back now I'd say that one of the major reasons we didn't like Epcot was cause we were so excited about being at Disney World for the first time. It was really our first and only big family vacations and we only had three days in Orlando 2 days for Disney and one for Sea World. My parents thought it would be good to do Epcot on the second day but when my sister and I realized that we would not be back to the MK we were devastated cause we didn't see everything and wanted to get to do somethings again. I believe we would have enjoyed Epcot much more and probably wouldn't have had a problem staying the rest of the day if we knew we were going back to MK the next day.

    Actually that was the only time my parents could afford to take us to Disney and the next time I went was not until 1998 and that was with my partner.

    Sometimes I get the WOM song stuck in my head.

    Also I have video that I took when I was 13 (1989) of the amazing cars of the future from the showroom at the end. You can faintly hear the recording say, "....And you dont have to wait until the 90's to experience this type of technology and comfort." I laughed when I discovered that a few years ago.

    Martin does some amazing tribute videos. His RoE and TT ones are especially great.

    You're missing WOM like I miss the original Journey Into Imagination. That was my absolute favorite ride at WDW besides Peoplemover.
