World of Motion

The star attraction of EPCOT Center's Transportation pavilion, the World of Motion was an opening day attraction.

 

Focusing on the history of transportation and making use of Disney's Omnimover vehicles, the ride began with a large turn that took guests outside the pavilion before entering the "show". Guided by the attraction's theme song, It's Fun to Be Free, guests then traveled through history to view the discovery of the wheel, the age of flight, steamboats, trains and traffic jams. The attraction ended with an effect similar to that used in the Magic Kingdom's Haunted Mansion in which each ride vehicle appeared as a car of the future.

 

The World of Motion closed in January of 1996 to make way for a complete overhaul of the pavilion and a new ride, Test Track.
