Future World East has been the home of some of the most popular attractions in Epcot's history including World of Motion, Cranium Command, and Horizons.

Future World East opened with the park with Universe of Energy and World of Motion. On the one year anniversary of Epcot, Horizons opened and in 1989 the Wonders of Life pavilion became the final pavilion added to this portion of Future World.

As time went on, however, Future World East began to have some changes. In 1996, World of Motion closed down to make way for a new attraction dealing with cars, Test Track. During the same year Universe of Energy had a change in theming as Ellen's Energy Adventure, starring Ellen DeGeneres, Alex Trebek, Bill Nye the Science Guy, and Jamie Lee Curtis, would take it's place.

Shortly after, the beloved Horizons would close in 1999 to eventually make way for Mission: SPACE which opened up in the same location in 2003. In 2007, Future World East saw the final change when the Wonders of Life pavilion was completely shut down.

The current attractions in Future World East are Test Track, Mission: SPACE, and Ellen's Energy Adventure. The Wonders of Life pavilion is still used for special events, such as the Flower and Garden Festival or the Food and Wine Festival.


Fun Facts: Future World East holds a lot of records for having one of the fastest attractions in Walt Disney World (Test Track), one of the longest (Ellen's Energy Adventure), and one that has probably upset more stomachs (Mission: SPACE).


Touring Tips: If you don't mind being split up from your party, use the single rider line over at Test Track! The wait is significantly shorter than the stand by line!
