A sneak peak at an image from the new Walt Disney Imagineering: A Behind the Dreams Look at Making More Magic Real book that is scheduled to be released on May 18, 2010.
Science fiction author Ray Bradbury (shown with Imagineers Card Walker and John Hench) helped conceive the original Spaceship Earth at Epcot; he returned in 2002 for a reworking of the original attraction. p. 37.

Card Walker? Imagineer? Ha!
Also, CURSE YOU for showing this before I could write about EPCOT ’76! This park design is indeed from 1976; World Showcase and the park’s entrance is on the right, Future World is on the left.
I’d love to get my hands on some of that art in the background!
That’s some pretty amazing artwork on the walls there! Love it!
I just might have to add this tome to my Disney library: http://www.twitpic.com/aah0z
Awesome, I now know how I’m going to finish my basement.
Scott…you might add it? heh.
Michael, it is rare that I can scoop someone of your genius! And it is just a little bitty picture!
Thanks for bringing all those memories back. Yes, that was a moment in time when the entrance was positioned between the two parks, but John Hench (rightly so) suggested that world showcase was a better “weenie” (that was Walt’s term not mine 😉 to draw guests through EPCOT. As you probably know there was even a time proceeding this when EPCOT & World Showcase were going to be separate entities positioned miles apart. (Thats another long story ;-)) …also a tip of the hat to Claudio and his art work on the walls behind Ray, John & Card. I must have been down the hall trying to stuff a mastodon into the space ship earth geodesic. lol
