Episode 6: Future World Pavilions Show Notes

- The Land Pavilion was redone in 2005 as apart of Disneyland's 50th Anniversary, in which Soarin' was added. The 19 month event kicked off on May 5, 2005. It was celebrated in every Disney theme park. Also added during the celebration to Walt Disney World were Cinderellabration and Lights, Motors, Action Stunt show.

- Test Track was originally slated to open in the Spring of 1997, but was delayed for over a year and half due to technically difficulty relating to the speed of the cars. Currently it is the fastest attraction at Walt Disney World reaching speeds over 60 miles per hour.

- The Imagination Pavilion opened on March 3, 1983 and has been through three different incarnations. The original was over 16 minutes long and featured the Dreamfinder and Figment prominently. It closed in October of 1998. The second lasted only two years was met was controversy. Some of this came from the fact that Figment and The Dreamfinder were almost completely removed. The third version opened in 2002 with a return of Figment as well as the "One Little Spark" song.

- Mission Space opened in June of 2003 at the former location of Horizons which closed in 1999 after being open only seasonally since 1994. Mission Space features a motion simulator thrill attraction. The pavilion was a pseudo sequel to The Carousel of Progress attraction at the Magic Kingdom.
