Here we go, the first of a brand new history trilogy. I thought it was time I covered this pavilion properly and group all the attractions in the correct time period.
Travel back, way back, to 1975 to see the origins of a pavilion based on the Land in the EPCOT Theme Center. Move through 1978's Ecology pavilion and see how and why the direction and design changed, including early designs for the 1982 pavilion. This is followed by a full construction section of the pavilion itself and the interior attractions, through to October 1982. Next, is a full 1982 layout tour of the pavilion and the various attractions within.
Take a tour of the original Kraft pavilion, shot in the late 80`s and early 90`s, the food court and the farmers market. This is followed by a full multi angle video ride on Listen to the Land with a good live audio mix. Next, line up in the holding area for The Kitchen Kabaret, with the whole show presented as a new high quality multi camera edit with full source audio. Once the show has ended, enter The Harvest Theatre and watch in full Symbiosis, with a clean live audio mix.
65 minutes long, with parts 2 and 3 to follow soon. Enjoy!
The second of my re edited trilogy, looking at the changes both to the pavilion and the attractions during the first major Futureworld overhaul. See the changes made to the interior, both in layout and decor. Then take a full, multi angle video and live/Induction audio ride of the 1993 version of Living with the Land. This is followed by a walk into the holding area for Food Rocks, and a new high quality and in-full multi angle, source quality audio edit of the show. Next walk into the Harvest Theatre for a look at the preshow to The Circle of Life, followed by the presentation in full with high quality video and an ALD audio track. Presented in full DV quality, 4:3. Running time 54:30
In this final part of The Land Ultimate trilogy, go back to 2005 to see the pavilion being totally refurbished. See the layout and decor changes, and how the Soarin' buildings were added and where. See Soarin' being constructed, its origins and how it works, then after its dedication take a look around the pavilion. This is followed by a full multi angle video of the current version of Living with the Land. Next, walk the line for Soarin', watch the preshow and take a full ride with flicker-free high quality video (freely available) and source audio, followed by a walk of the exit line. 48 minutes long. Enjoy!
Here is the first of a multi part WDW Adventureland and Frontierland history series. It made sense to produce a video showing the history of these 2 attractions since they are both connected, and indeed exist, due to the third attraction also featured in the video - the never built Thunder Mesa and Western River Expedition.
Beginning in the late 60`s see the designs and proposals in detail for Thunder Mesa and its 2 E Tickets, Western River Expedition and Big Thunder Railroad. Follow the plots and concepts of both rides, plus the Mountain, before arriving in 1971 and the reasons behind and the designs of Pirates of the Caribbean. Following this is a full concepts, layout and construction section of the Orlando version, followed by a full multi angle enhanced and remastered edit of the 1973 ride with a new stereo source audio/clean live audio mix. Next, see the history and design of Caribbean Plaza and then jump forward 5 years for the reasons behind and full concept and construction coverage of Big Thundermountain Railroad - and how Western River was nearly built again.
Follow the design and layout of Big Thundermountain, and take a multi angle trip aboard the wildest ride in the wilderness. Next, follow the changes made to both attractions since 1973 and 1980, then see what took place in Pirates of the Caribbean during its major 2006 refurb. This is followed by a full multi angle, stereo source/clean live audio mix ride of the current attraction including full queue coverage. Finally, take a tour of modern day Caribbean Plaza, see the additions made for The Pirates League, what parts of Thunder Mesa were actually used and finish with a night time ride on Big Thundermountain.
