Review

You can’t go to Epcot without going on this iconic ride! That’s right, that massive golf ball (or geosphere as Disney calls it) actually has a ride inside. I admit in the past we used this slow-moving 16 minute ride as a way to relax in air-conditioning, but since they’ve made the ride partly interactive, it’s added an element of fun that will definitely delight most kids, and, okay, adults!

Once you get in your vehicle , you’ll slowly wind up into the ball, all while learning about the important events throughout history, and how these moments in time have shaped our technology of today. You don’t exactly go to space, but when you reach the top of the ball, you’ll feel like it!

Just remember as the ride is starting look right and smile, or better yet, make a funny face! Later you’ll get to answer a few questions and design your own future! After you get off your ride, make sure to spend some time in Project Tomorrow where you’ll not only be able to email your future to yourself, but also see it on the big screen.

Mom’s worry note: This is a dark and long ride, so if you have a small child you might want to have them in the vehicle near you.
