and yet I still can't give it a perfect score only because its been cheesed up recently. Poorly conceived ride updates aside, future world still surprisingly holds the same beauty It's always held. Crystal Pyramids, Botanistic glass atrium, the beautiful geodesic structures and the stylistic fronts of Space and Seas, to test track's retro-future glimmering cylinder left over from World Of Motion, to the Universe of Energy which's massive grounded structure seems to push against you kinetically.
Every Pavillion has its own world basically. When you're in The Land its actually hard to imagine that its the same park as Spaceship Earth, or Universe of Energy.
Every ride takes you away (cept for some new ones) to another place wether it be a botanical paradise, a time machine, our past, our future, our dreams.
Each Pavillion represents its theme
Spaceship Earth is about humanity, and hence it is our earth that is represented, but silver and futuristic, like a spaceship! The station is beautiful and always has been. Its big enough to have the gravitas it deserves.
Universe of energy "Pushes" against you revealing its solar panels. the entire ride is low and heavy feeling, and although its slow it feels like its powerful.
Mission space never stops feeling like a spaceship, even when its not. The outdoor entrance still emits the essence of an airtight capsule, even when its wide open. Its interior could use some work, but it serves its purpose.
Test Track, a cylinder, like those in a car. Ironically, test track looks quite natural wrapped around it. and the backstage area feels like a proving grounds for your test vehicle.
Imagination even in its corrupted modern incarnation, is still beautiful. Its pyramids an irreplaceable focal point that will stand the test of time. in its prior state, It was perfectly designed to make you feel like your head was in the clouds.
The Land is a gentle pavilion. In opposition to imaginations ambitious glass pyramids the glass topping of the land is curved and soft. Throughout the land you will see repeated patchwork land patterns flowing like those in farm fields. Even in the Seasons restaurant it flows this way. Even the planters outside.
The Seas looks like a wave. It's original sign with water crashing against the rocks the constant sound of seagulls in the distance and the oceanic breeze. Even today I enjoy the goofy "mine" seagulls (or pelicans? I always mix those up) as they seem to feel real somehow.
And poor wonders, lost to a word of cheapness and degraded to being used as a tent. It still resembles a natural organic membrane of a cell its interior mobiles still hang with their molecular structures over a sad lost world.
Innoventions circles the centerpiece where so much is going on its overwhelming! The Electric umbrella was always a stop for me between FW and WS, and its retro sci fi feel always got me.
All this and they STILL manage to have wide vast open spaces of utter quiet.

The only area of Epcot to visit, IMHO. Skip WS and spend the day here!

Futureworld is headlined by Spaceshipearth which looks futuristic itself and is about the future and its technologies. It is probably the most changing place of any park but spaceshipearth and Living with the land stay very much the same. Test Track and Mission Space take care of the thrills. Futureworld also has the majority of the rides in EPCOT. It's a very familiar place and doesn't change much on the ouside over the years. EPCOT wouldn't be what it is wihtout Futureworld or wihtout World Showcase.
