An unforgettable journey
17 May 2011 | by (Massachusetts) – See all my reviews

This unconventional Walt Disney World attraction fuses history and entertainment in a fun and informative, slow-moving ride. Speaking as someone who has been on the ride countless times, as well as someone who has experienced the changes in the ride over the decades, I encourage all of those who visit Walt Disney World and the EPCOT theme park in particular to take the time to enjoy this attraction.

The ride features various scenes from important points in human history, creating a stunning visual account of the history of communication. Important events like the invention of papyrus scrolls, theatre, Guttenberg's printing press, and radio are just some of the events depicted. Each scene is filled with detail from the animatronics acting out the event down to the set dressings and backdrops.

The ride is located in the iconic "golf ball" at the entrance of the park. There usually isn't a long line for the ride, but regardless if there is it usually moves pretty quickly as it is a continuously moving ride.

Again, if you are visiting WDW, be sure to make a stop at this ride. It's not a thrill ride, but I can almost guarantee you won't be disappointed.
