    My vintage wdw pics- EPCOT Center, Subs, Skyway, More!

    The other thread inspired me to look through my old WDW pics from back in the day... and I found so many that I loved! So here they are, I hope you enjoy:

    I guess you could tell I was an EPCOT fan from the very beginning. I would kill to have this shirt today!!!


    World of motion exterior...



    ... and a shot from inside (and yes, I used a flash- but I was little! forgive me!):



    My fave of all time, Horizons:


    Look, it's dreamfinder!

    Welcome to the magic kingdom, sometime in the 80s. Let's take a ride on the skyway!



    Look- it's the sub lagoon! It really was pretty.


    Another view you'll never see again- dumbo from the skyway:


    The skyway itself:




    Let's head over to fantasyland!

    More subs...





    And we've got to ride Mr toad- another favorite!



    Oh no, where are we?



    Let's get out of here... over to Space Mountain. I loved when they had this entryway- so majestic! I don't see why they got rid of it



    My mom always headed right to the post-show

    Need a break from the parks? How about a jaunt over to Discovery Island?



    And finally, a more recent pic but still poignant: MGM pre-hat.



    Hope you enjoyed the little trip down memory lane as much as I did! ALl of these pics are from the 80s and mid-90s. Many of them were taken on the last trip I took where wdw was in its true glory- 1994.

    Thanks, nice pictures. I wish I was old enough to fully enjoy EPCOT when it was in it's full glory. I love Toad, but at least there is still a version of that at DL. I would love to see traditional subs return. I love the movie Finding Nemo, but I just feel that the videos I have seen of both the original submarine rides at DL and WDW would be much better with all that cool stuff about Atlantis, mermaids, and a giant squid. That stuff just appeals to me in a ride more than a recap of Finding Nemo does. I haven't riden FNSV yet so I can't officially comment. I did ride 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea once, but I can't remember actually riding it as I was only 3 or 4 at the time. I was around 8 or 9 on my first return trip and it was 94 and the subs had already closed. Never got to DL till 2005, so no original subs for me there.

    Great photos! Brings back memories. Looked much the same as I remember in the early '90's.

    I actually did not really like the subs... I remember the line being long and the ride being pretty fake (with the cast member keeping his head popped out of the top the whole time). But it sure looked pretty from the shore!

    I really get nostalgic looking at the pics of mgm pre-hat. That was such a lovely vista- the chinese theatre really set the scene for being in hollywood.

    And I mourn the removal of the space mountain spacemen statue- I guess it did not fit with the new-tomorrowland asthetic, but I used to take a pic of it on every trip, I loved it so!

    Great pics. Ahh, Horizons and World of motion. Two great family attractions gone to make way for "thrill rides".
