Hello and welcome back to Photo memories #10, part 2 of
Epcot Center’s Horizons. Below is a shot of the future from the 1950’s. I
always referred to it as the neon city.
Our next stop is the desert farm Mesa Verde. To fully appreciate the
above orange harvester section, spray some orange air freshener and take
a deep whiff (to this day, every time I smell that orange scent I think
of this scene). This was the Soarin of it’s time.
Next is the harvester control module and hovercraft. You get the
opportunity to fly this back to the Future Port at the conclusion of the
ride (you could choose between Desert, Undersea & Space endings).
The next transition scene features the cat and jumping fish (a similar
effect could be found on the retired
Disneyland attraction Mine Train through Nature’s Wonderland). Finally we
see the family preparing for a birthday party in the futuristic desert
Please stop back soon for Pt 3 of the
Horizons Photo Memories extended series.
