New Horizons For… Those Guys

Today’s flashback comes from 1982, when the first show scene had been completed and approved for EPCOT’s Horizons attraction. The first set to be completed was Scene #14, “Urban Habitat.” You remember the one:

EPCOT Horizons, Nova Cite - Urban Habitat

To celebrate the first finalized scene for the attraction, what better for a group of talented Imagineers to do than to take a few pictures of themselves goofing off?

Horizons would go on to open on October 1st, 1983.
