YouTube 4. Epcot Monorail - Cockpit View - 1983

This is from a trip back in 1983, less than six months after Epcot opened. It is a fun perspective from the monorail cockpit as guests are no longer allowed to ride up front. You can hear some of the original "Jack Wagner" audio in the background. He mentions that Horizons will be opening later that year. As we are pulling out of Epcot, take a look at the parking lot to get an idea of the era. Yes, the dorky 11 year old boy in the video is me.

  1. After you leave the parking lot you can hear Jack Wagner talk about future world showcase pavillions like Equatorial Africa & Spain.

  2. Very true! Plans have changed quite a bit over the years!
