Location: Future World, Epcot
Let's play Where in the World?
Alright, I know what you are thinking: "'Brent, you
already posted the location of where this week's Fun Find is taking
place so you just took all the fun out of it!" I know that's partly
true, but here's a question for you. Which side of Future World was
that photo taken? Future World West or Future World East?
Well, there are two ways we can figure that answer
out. One is by being observant and simply seeing Test Track in the
distance and coming up with the answer of Future World East OR
there's the Imagineer way: by looking at the planters!
You see, Future World, while one land, is broken up
into two sections. On one side you have Future World East, which
consists of futuristic ideas dealing with space travel, energy, and
motorized vehicles. Think of it as cutting edge technology. On the
other side you have things with more flow to it, whether it's the
brainstorming of ideas, rolling hills of the land, or the rolling
waves in the ocean.
In order to keep a distinction between these two
areas, the two sections received different landscaping areas. Since
Future World East focuses on sharp thinking, and slick new ideas,
the landscaping consists of pointed ends as seen here:
Future World West focuses on things with new real
end or beginning. The hills and waves have a nice smooth look to
them, while ideas in people's heads can flow from one thought to the
next. Because of this, the landscaping here is smoother and flows
from one point to the next with no definite beginning or ending as
seen in the picture here:
So next time someone shows you a Where in the World?
or you get lost in Future World, take a look at the landscaping
around you! Just like everything else in Disney, it really has a
