Take a virtual audio trip in this installment of the WDW-Memories podcast, brought to you in immersive binaural / 3D / spatial sound, experiencing another magical memory from Walt Disney World. In today’s memory, you will join us as we head to the front of the park to finally ride that iconic Epcot attraction.
Well hello and welcome to the WDW-Memories Podcast where together we relive that Walt Disney World Magic. My name is Lou and I’ll once again be your host on this magical adventure.
It’s now been 6 months since I was in Walt Disney World and all I can think is how I wish I could be on one of these attractions. Years ago, when I first began recording my visits, today’s featured attraction was a must record. It is one of those where you hear the sounds of the cars moving over the track, or the narration behind your head, and you are suddenly there. So go grab a charcoal brickette and let’s take a ride on Spaceship Earth.
So we’re continuing our adventures in Epcot on a beautiful Sunday in December of 2021. The sun is warm, and the sky is mostly clear. It’s a perfect Florida winter afternoon, even if its a little too warm in the sun.
If you remember from Memory 274, we were on our way to the front of the park when we saw the crowds gathering in Norway to see their storytellers share about the Mischevious, Magical Barn Santa. As the show finished, we left Norway and continued our journey to the front of the park. We’ll join back into our memory as we’re passing the stage where Joyful! A Celebration of the Season is wrapping up their show. These musicians sound amazing, but the kids are dying to ride something again so we continue on into the contruction walls that now encompas so much of what was called Future World. We’ll make our way around by Test Track, Mission Space, and the then future home of Guardians of the Galaxy, finally arriving at the entrance to Spaceship Earth. We’ll jump into line, which was only at the bottom of the ramp at this point, but unfortunately the omni-mover stopped just before we entered the building. Eventually they get it going once again and we’re able to make our way in and take a seat on our time vehicle, and are swept up into the Geodesic Sphere for a trip through the history of human communication. For mom and dad, this ride is a great moment of relaxation. For the kids, it’s ok, basically a show. They were probably more excited after we got off trying to find our pictures on the map in the post-show area.
Today’s memory is in binaural once again, so I’d suggest putting those headphones on to fully immerse yourself in the memory.
Now that you have your headphones on, let’s join my family as we hop aboard the omni-mover that carries us on our journey through the history of human communication.
