Book Description

13 Sep 2012
Trace the history of Epcot through the years with this collection of photographs from a fan's perspective. We take you back to Horizons, World of Motion, Wonders of Life, and other pavilions that have changed over the years, like the original versions of Universe of Energy, Journey into Imagination, Spaceship Earth, and the Living Seas. We also track alternations and additions to World Showcase over time, as well as the various events and entertainment offerings. With over 500 color photographs, the vast majority of which were chosen because they illustrate items you can no longer see in today's Epcot, this book provides a tour of the past unlike any other. There is also a black & white version of this book available as a separate title. Allears.net says this book is "like an Epcot travelogue! The hundreds of beautiful photos will provide readers with an illustrated trip around the park any time they feel the need for an Epcot fix." The reviewer also admits: "I have heard many Disney fans lament the demise of Horizons, but I never understood what the attraction was about, or how it worked (multiple endings?), but after reading the description of the attraction, and seeing the amazing pictures, I can now see what it is that others miss."

5.0 out of 5 stars It is what it claims to be 21 Sep 2012
By DJ - Published on Amazon.com
I don't normally write reviews, but I feel that I must post a rebuttal to the review that denigrates the book as being merely "fan" photos. The authors never make any claim to being professional photographers and the photographs reflect that. These are photos from their personal collections done over 30 years of enjoying and experiencing EPCOT Center and Epcot. Yes, this is a fan's retrospective of Epcot and a very good one at that.

As for the claim for the text being ripped straight from the Internet... prove it. I highly doubt two well-respected authors (as they are) would stoop to such lows.

As a fan of Epcot (and not always a fan of Kevin Yee's works) I highly enjoyed this book and highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great! 22 Sep 2012
By Bill M. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A book on the last 30 years of EPCOT, for the fans FROM two fans. Both authors know exactly what they are talking about and have incredible amounts of knowledge at their disposal, knowing from past books that I have read from both. Even if you know everything about the park, the book is still a nostalgic run-through and a great reminder about how much the park has evolved over the last 30 years. Great Read!

2.0 out of 5 stars Its OK, but... 8 April 2013
By Luis Maiorano - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The book is fine, but do not have much new information to anyone who is a fan of this park.
It recognizes the work of gathering images and love the author has for EPCOT.
There's something I can not pass, on one of the pages Walt Disney is quoted with the following statement: If you can dream it, you can do it ... he never said this quote, was Tom Fitzgerald, sorry, but I could not pass this error.

4.0 out of 5 stars Epcot: The First Thirty Years (Color Version): An Unofficial Retrospective 18 Oct 2012
By mac_R_tst - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The good-the book is FULL of great pictures and information regarding EPCOT's history.

The bad-It looks like it was just thrown together. The layout is VERY basic and no design went into creating it.
(I may be a little bias because I am a graphic designer by trade though)

I would still recommend this book to anyone who is into Disney's/EPCOT's history.
