The first of my totally re edited Futureworld edits. Over ten years ago I first created my “Ultimate Tributes” and now they’re showing their age. Each one has been re built from scratch with far better quality, more footage and more angles, more art and construction material, far better higher resolution graphics and much higher quality, brand new audio mixes – with more clean live and source audio than before. Each video clip has been enhanced, cleaned as much as I can, and any screen flicker removed as much as possible.
Start back at the origins of EPCOT Center as the park we know began to emerge and the centrepiece attraction and theme developed. See how the building developed, the storyline progressed, and how the ride fits inside. Following a full construction section and dedication highlights take a trip through the 1982 version via art, models, vintage film clips and recreations and with a new audio mix. After riding take a full tour of Futurecom in Communicore West.
Next fast forward to 1986 to see the changes that were made, then walk into the building for a full multi camera ride of the Cronkite version with new footage and a new clean audio mix. See a brand new recreation of 180top, capturing the style and feeling of the complex show scene and take a descent to a brand new Tomorrows Child mix. On exiting the ride see the complete overhead Earthstation Futureworld film projection and take a look at the Worldkey Information System.
These new tributes have been a real labour of love and in production for over a year. Whilst there’s only so much that can be done with recordings of the era I hope you’ll agree they are far better than the previous versions and are some of the best available to the fan community.
Shot with permission from multiple angles in full HD, the full attraction from walk in to walk out. Experience the holding show and the preshow then enter the main chamber for the whole main show with every detail covered. Audio is a new custom mix of clean live, ALD, induction and source.
Love it or like it not so much, this attraction was a big part of the Magic Kingdoms history and is documented here in full.

Take a look how close Paris got to getting the ride first, then see how the ride works and how it differs to the Orlando original. After the DCA version has its grand opening take a full multi angle tour, with source audio.
Next up is a look at how the Paris version fitted into the studio park. Once built and after the grand press night take a full multi angle tour of this version, again with source audio.
Something a little different. We were lucky to be able to take a seven night Eastern Caribbean cruise on the Fantasy this year. Here is an edit of the week from a first timers point of view. Tours of the ship, the food, the entertainment, the islands, Castaway Cay, all presented here in a chronological order.
Take a look at the changes made from Maelstrom and see the layout of both the ride and the new meet and greet. Then take a full tour of the expanded pavilion, both interior standby and Fastpass lines, and then take a full ride. Shot in full HD from multiple angles with a better than live audio mix.
Shot in September 2016, experience the park after dark. Take a full walk around the park, seeing the different ambiance and theming when the lands are illuminated.
Walk the Safaris queue, and take a full multi camera ride at dusk. Shot during twilight and into night time to show the new lighting systems at their best, and the abundance of animals once the (real) sun has set.
Finally, experience some of the new entertainment and experience a Tree of Life awakening.
The new summer 2016 Hollywood Studios fireworks and multimedia show. Shot in HD from multiple angles to capture all the details and composited to give a real time view of everything. With a custom source quality audio / live pyro mix.
In the second part of this release, see the history and designs of the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train. Experience the first summers hectic rope drop walk down Main Street in an attempt to control the crowds before taking a full queue tour and full multi angle ride.
Next see the changes made around the existing land, including Poohs facade and queue, the removal of the Skyway station for the bypass and bathrooms – with a tour of the station when it was operating- and the Peter Pans Flight new interior standby queue.
This is followed by a look at the changes made to Voyage of the Little Mermaid since it opened.
Finally, take in the whole project at night.
Another colossal project charting the history of the New Fantasyland project. Starting with 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea closing follow proposals that never happened for the lagoon, and its removal. See what happened in the interim, and then the original NFL plans, both before and after the changes. With before and after pictures see the land grow from the ground from start to finish.
Then take a wall through the construction wall for highlights from the soft opening of Enchanted Tales with Belle. See the layout of this attraction, and also Ariel’s Undersea Adventures : Voyage of the Little Mermaid, before taking your place outside the planters for the first soft opening of the land to guests. Follow the crowds to Mermaid and take a full HD tour of the queue with the first guests to be admitted. Then take a full multi camera HD, mostly source audio ride on the attraction as it appeared on opening day.
After exiting, peek inside Ariel’s Meet and Greet, Bonjour Gifts and Gaston’s Tavern on opening day too and then take a tour of Be Our Guest restaurant too.
Another huge project…. full of WEDway!
Beginning with the origins of the ride, look at how Tomorrowland developed and how the WEDway route was refined. See the development of the ride system progressed, how it fits into Tomorrowland and how it actually works. Next is a full concept and construction section, followed by a recreation of the original 1975-1985 era ride. Using vintage footage take a multi angle trip around and through the whole ride including Mission to Mars, RCA Space Mountain with Home of Future Living and If You Have Wings, set to the original Jack Wagner spiel. I’m hoping this audio track, whilst certainly not perfect, is one of the clearest and most complete mixes available.
This is followed by a spin on the original Star Jets.
Next up is a full multi angle night ride on the 1985-1994 ORAC-1 WEDway. This includes RCAs RYCA-1 and Delta Dreamflight. Audio again is I hope one of the clearest and most complete version of this spiel, mixed from front and rear car recordings so nothing was missed.
See the changes made in 1994, then take a full daytime multi angle ride on the Tomorrowland Transit Authority TTA Blueline. Again, audio was specifically recorded with a directional microphone from both the front and back cars, and again I hope this is one of the best and most complete recordings.
Following this is a full multi camera, HD spin on the Astro Orbiter.
This is followed by yet more – a HD, multi angle daytime ride of the 2009 Peoplemover with audio again mixed from front and rear cars. I also with this edit attempted to use more unusual camera angles to differ from the many ride throughs already available.
And still there’s more! A daytime off ride look at the Peoplemover as it travels around the various parts of Tomorrowland.
For anyone still watching, next up is an in depth look at the WEDway proposed for Lake Buena Vista, E.P.C.O.T. and Communicore. Then look at and ride the WEDway at Houston Airport and the WEDway derived line in Washington DC.
And finally….. a night time HD multi angle ride around Tomorrowland of today.
Each section is set to contemporary Tomorrowland music of the time. 87 minutes long.
