The Land 1 of 3 – 1982 – Ultimate Tribute

The Land 1 of 3 – 1982 – Ultimate Tribute from Martins Videos on Vimeo.

Here we go, the first of a brand new history trilogy. I thought it was time I covered this pavilion properly and group all the attractions in the correct time period.

Travel back, way back, to 1975 to see the origins of a pavilion based on the Land in the EPCOT Theme Center. Move through 1978’s Ecology pavilion and see how and why the direction and design changed, including early designs for the 1982 pavilion. This is followed by a full construction section of the pavilion itself and the interior attractions, through to October 1982. Next, is a full 1982 layout tour of the pavilion and the various attractions within.

Take a tour of the original Kraft pavilion, shot in the late 80`s and early 90`s, the food court and the farmers market. This is followed by a full multi angle video ride on Listen to the Land with a good live audio mix. Next, line up in the holding area for The Kitchen Kabaret, with the whole show presented as a new high quality multi camera edit with full source audio. Once the show has ended, enter The Harvest Theatre and watch in full Symbiosis, with a clean live audio mix.

65 minutes long, with parts 2 and 3 to follow soon. Enjoy!

    I can’t wait to watch The Land.

    I started at Disney in the Land pavilion in ’92. I was an usher at the Kitchen Kabaret. I helped people in/out of Symbiosis (the movie about man’s relationship with the environment), and – of course – was a host on the Listen to the Land boat ride.

    This was back when the spiel lasted through the whole ride.

    I still have my script!

    (From there I went to work in marketing with the newly launched Disney Vacation Club).

    hi martin, your videos are excellent.
    there is a lot of heart put into them, and the quality really shows. you have a great documentary style.. like i am really visiting these places, not just watching a video of them.

    as for The Land.. i wasn’t able to visit many of these places before they were torn down and replaced (because i hadn’t been born yet). i’d heard some music and audio from these attractions yet i could never visualize what they looked like until i saw your collection. wow, the kitchen kabaret sure was something! i appreciate having your archive to fill that void.

    thank you for bringing back the past which i never would have been able to experience otherwise. in 1982 lugging that camcorder around must have been a real chore! i hope that it is gratifying to know that i hold these video memories very dear. thanks again for preserving these images and making them available for the curious future to enjoy : )

    Stumbled on your site today, and I am in LOVE! These are hands-down the best video tributes on the interwebs. This Land piece is incredible, It’s all there, just as I remember! Thank you so much for all of your hard work.

    I was on the opening crew for The Land back in 1982.
