    EPCOT Cam

    There is in fact an EPCOT webcam. The camera is on top of the Swan Hotel, pointing towards the park. Mostly you can see Spaceship Earth, but it's fun to watch at night. The picture updates every 5 minutes. Enjoy!

    I was keeping an eye on that webcam during all the hurricanes last summer. I kept hoping the wand would fall over but no such luck.

    I too watched during the hurricanes, but have not been back since

    WARNNING: The weatherbug cams and program are full of spyware


    P.S. Too bad there is not one closer that shows the monorail track

    I did the same thing! (When I wasn't IN one, that is!)

    I remember when disneyworld.com had a webcam for each of the four parks. The Epcot one, for example, was in an upper window of the American Adventure and pointed across the lagoon toward SE.

    This was a few years ago, but I miss it.

    Yeah, it was cool because you could also play a time-lapse Quicktime video of the entire day before. Fun to watch the sun go up and then set and the lights come on.

    The others were positioned thusly:

    MK: In the train station, pointing up Main Street toward the castle
    MG: Pointing at the Mickey Globe thing on the news stand right past the entrance turnstiles
    AK: The Tree of Life. B-O-R-I-N-G webcam.

    For about a year after they turned them off you could still watch the final day online. But with the disney.com redesign they got rid of the pages.

    bring back the webcams.. they help us know how bad the crods are.. and it isn't like universal and other competitors can see what they are doing right from most angles...

    When Universal IOA was in its testing days with park guests, they had these amazing park webcams that were on 30 second update intervals. You could pan the camera left and right, move it up and down, zoom clearly all the way across the park and the lagoon. They were almost voyeuristic. As far as webcam tech, it was THE best I had ever seen. I used to pan the marvel camera up and watch the Hulk launch. I'm sure they created a lot of problems though. For one, you could clearly (and by that I mean CLEARLY) pan and zoom the cameras directly onto park guests.

    Nice link. Thank you! I've been missing the WDW web cams. The Mainstreet one was fantastic. Sad that they are gone.

    Are there any other good Orlando park cams out there?

    I remember hearing that one of the reasons they did away with the webcams was because of terrorism - I'm not sure how this would directly benefit the terrorists... but...
