Future World, Epcot Center

Horizons opened on October 1, 1983 and sadly closed on January 9, 1999. In this window of time it only began to enter the era of digital photography where it's now possible to snap everything with zero processing costs, thereby creating a valuable record of things we see that would otherwise only live on in our memories.

Unlike other Disney and Epcot attractions that have a prolific number of tribute videos and photo galleries which are added to daily with every park visit, Horizons photos are comparatively rare. And there's no opportunity to take any more...

In 2005 a pin badge was released to commemorate the attraction.

There were a handful of GE cast members who worked the Horizons attraction. They did not wear the normal nametag that the rest of the WDW cast members wore.
